Biography

There are at least 3 bands named as Trabant: one is an Iceland rock group formed in 2001; the second one was a short-lived underground hungarian alternative group in the ’80s, still having cult-status; the other is an Italian band from Trieste.

The Hungarian one:
This band was formed in 1980 in Hungary. It was one of the most important Hungarian underground bands. Members were Gábor Lukin, Marietta Méhes and János Vető.

This band has quite quickly become a cult-band. They made very low-key, very lo-fi music, which was meant to exist rather in a small room than on stage. Their music was quite experimental and free, somewhat clumsy and honest. The very unique, soft, yet cold voice of Marietta Méhes was also influential part of their sound. Though Marietta was the lead singer, on some concerts they used other singers, for example cult-hero Tamás Pajor (Neurotic), Mariann Urbán (Embersport), or Attila Grandpierre (ex-VHK, Vágtázó Csodaszarvas). Along with other important underground band Balaton, their company consisted of lot of talented young artists, like Mihály Víg, who worked with both bands, director Gábor Bódy, or Zoltán Gazsi.

In the early eighties Marietta Méhes started a quite successful acting career, appearing in such films, like Kutya éji dala (Gábor Bódy, 1983), or Eszkimó asszony fázik (János Xantus, 1984).

    Eh, still searching for any information at all on the trabant that created 'promises in the shapes of noise'. If anyone has any info at all, I'd greatly appreciate a message.

    Which trabant does 'promises in the shapes of noise', 'she comes in like headlights', and 'slow and constant as she goes'. . . ? I've been looking for them for years. Someone please msg me, if they're aware of whom I'm looking for. . .

    I'm really wondering how many bands have "TRABANT" in the name. I know about Iclanders but it looks like there might be more.
