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”
Many thanks for these videos!
I can’t help feeling, though, that while these guys could go head to head with the Beatles of 1964, the real test would be what they were doing four years later. I shall have to see if I can find out. . . .
For some reason Czerwone Gitary always makes me think of Elektryczne Gitary. Probably just because the names are slightly similar. The later is a band from the 90s with much sillier lyrics. Sort of a ska-influenced less ironic Weird Al.
