Czerwone Gitary, the Polish Beatles

One good thing about flying LOT home from Israel (Chicago and Tel Aviv both have a lot of people of Polish descent, thus you can get from one to the other via Warsaw) is that you can learn a lot about rock in Polish from listening to the seatback audio.  How had I gone my whole life without hearing Czerwone Gitary, the “Polish Beatles”?

Here’s “Nie zadzieraj nosa”

and “To Właśnie My”
