The Bill is a Polish band from Pionki, formed in 1988 by Artur “Soko” Soczewica. The band’s name is pronounced in a similar way to the Polish word ‘debil’, which in English means ‘idiot’. The Bill played several times at the Jarocin Festival and The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity finales.

In 1984 four school mates Kefir, Krzysiek, Kuba and Skóra formed their first band. In 1985 named “Afront”. In 1986 as first polish christian punk band (yep, it was Afront not Armia) they won 3rd place in christian song festival.

The band ceased performing in 1996, but have never formally disbanded. In summer 2004 they’re back.
