Biography

The band was formed in 1997 by members and friends of ULICA - the punk band existing since late 80s that has just ceased to exist and hard core boys from INSANE SCUM. Czosnek’s first live show – some months later - gathered over 200 people as it was a benefit for a friend who was sent to prison for fighting a nazi on the street…

2001 - the first demo cassette was released by NNNW (Nikt Nic Nie Wie – the longest running Polish d.i.y. punk label). It was called “Gloomy stories of strife with life stabilization” and contains a mix of raw punk and weird “cold wave” noise. Tracks from the tape were included on some benefit compilations, including „Farewell to arms” CD and „Food not politics” cassette.

2001 and 2002 were busy with concerts - the band played in Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary (as the first Polish punk band there), Czech, Slovakia, Austria, Croatia and Slovenia. The line up has changed, and the music became more hard core, but still with a lot of weird “noisy” bits. Czosnek played in weird places, including open air act accompanying a performance set by the befriended artist Leszek Blyszczynski (who designed the album cover as well) – a symbolic act of resistance against the fall of culture in our home town.

In the meantime, the LP “Illegal pornography with abuse of chuildren, animals and plants” was recorded. The band recorded together with an experimental… flute / recorder player. But don’t worry – you can’t tell his noises from another guitar sound… The record cover includes a board game “King of punks” – full of real stories, kind of punk version of Dungeons and Dragons game.
