Biography

Locomotiv GT (often abbreviated LGT) is a Hungarian rock band formed in 1971. It is one of the most influential bands in the history of Hungarian rock music.

The band was formed in Budapest on April 6, 1971. The founders were already well-known musicians – Gábor Presser (songwriter, keyboardist, singer) had been member of the famous band Omega, just like the drummer József Laux. Károly Frenreisz bass guitarist was formerly a member of the band Metro, while the solo guitarist Tamás Bartha came from the band Hungária. Laux’s wife, lyrics writer Anna Adamis was the “unofficial fifth member” of the band, often collaborating with Presser when writing the songs.

Their first concert was held on the Park Stage in Buda in July. It was followed by the first single, with the songs Boldog vagyok (“I’m Happy”) and Ha volna szíved (“If You Had A Heart”) in August. In October they opened a club together with the Tolcsvay Trió. In November they were invited to the World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo because of their success with Ezüst nyár (also recorded in English with the title “Silver Summer”). At the festival they performed an English version of their song Érints meg (“Touch Me”) under the title “Touch Me, Love Me, Rock Me”. A new single was released with the two English language songs.

    This is great. I'm not from Hungary, but I think every fan of the good old prog rock should check them out. I instantly fell in love with the song "Rock Yourself Away" .

    Az lenne jóó, hogyhaa egyesíteni lehetne a lapokat, és akkor Mindenki, Mindenki, Mindenki, Mindenki, Mindenki, Mindenki, Mindenki, Mindenki, mindenki egyben lenne.

    Jó lenne, ha valahogy lehetne egyesíteni a Locomotiv GT és az LGT lapokat, és akkor a tagek egyben lennének.

    I've been a fan of this band for well over 30 years, still love it.. As for bluesy- not really the entire record, but but there's one very bluesy track that comes to my mind: Kek Asszony from the Bummm ! album, which in my modest opinion is their best btw.
