I know SOME polish bands... - honestly- i know hundreds of them.
for example- one of the most popular and the most trashy is ICH TROJE (pop). other popular bands: SISTARS (hh), ŁZY (pop-rock), MYSLOVITZ (rock), JEDEN OSIEM L (hh- in fact- there are many many polish hip-hop bands popular amnog polish teenagers), COMA (rock), RAZ DWA TRZY (pop)... etc.

Awesome!! - The only band you listed I've found so far is Jeden Osiem L.

Where can I get the music?? I'm currently in the Chicago area.


malwinaTuesday 27th of July 2004 12:59:57 AM
- hmm.. hard question. I think you won't buy any cd's of these bands in chicago coz they are popular only in Poland. you can just download some songs by the bands i listed from Kazaa Lite for example.

- Thanks for the advice! I will try that! Have a great day!

Hi princess Amy! - wish has been granted??

And... a word of advice... stay away from Ich Troje. Their male singer is laughable. Female singer is good in my opinion.
Why the need for Polish CDs?
good luck :)

oh yeah, and thanks for the band names I'm looking for them now :) Cool graphic too!

if you would like to listen to some harder music... - I prefer sth harder and ... darker. So here you have links to web-sites of 3 most popular and, in my opinion, best Polish gothic bands:

Closterkeller - http://www.anja.pl/eng/index.html <=English version (listen to a couple of free MP3, the best CD, in my opinion, is "Graphite")

Artrosis - http://artrosis.rockmetal.art.pl/ (only in Polsih, go to ZASOBY and look for audio files if youu want to listen to some music, best CD - "Posrod kwiatow i cieni")

and last but not least ;) Moonlight - http://www.caladan.art.pl/moonlight/ (English version and free MP3 available)

So... have a nice time listening to good music. And PLEASE, stay away from Ich Troje, they suck so bad!!

- well that depends what kind of music you like, if you like rock: i'd advise Coma or Myslovitz (btw they've released the album with english language versions of their songs)
Hey --> oh yes, deffinitely very good, like the last
Mannaam is more ambitious music but still good, I like thse songs from album 'łżko' ('lozko')
a good rather new band is Riverside, but if you want to learn Polish they're not good ---> songs in english

lately I'm fascinated with a genre which we in Poland call 'sang poetry' or say that the songs belong to 'kraina lagodnosci' (land of placidy/gentelness/mildness <--- I've got no idea how to translate this but sojmething around thiat ;]) especially the band called "stare dobre malzenstwo', they are amazing, you can get mp3 from here http://www.sdm.art.pl/mp3.php but only those under the phrase 'stary blues o czwartej nad ranem' works ;( you should try listening to their music, there is smomething about the vocalist's voice that makes you smile and feel better ;] ; other artists from that genre are Jacek Kaczmarski, Wolna Grupa Bukowina , Bez Jacka ... more less known but very good you can find here http://mp3.wp.pl/p/strefa/gatunki/N1.html to download the song click the yellow picture in the middle with a dart, it's on the right of every song, hope you enjoy it
I'll write on this topic more ... but tomorrow
noght all

- I'll check it out thanks
down-to-earthWednesday 15th of September 2004 05:17:13 PM
- oh my gosh how could I forget about one onf the most significant polish bands 'Kult', you should deffinitelty listen to any song of them you find in the internet

others I've just remembered are:
T.Love, Acid Drinkers, Dżem, ONA, Ira, Edyta Bartosiewicz, Perfekt, Chłopcy z pracu broni, Pudelsi (but I don't really like them), Lady Pank (!sic),
if you have Kazaa or direct connect you shouldn't have problems with finding them
somebody already mentioned Ich Troje but, imho though they WERE popular some time ago, listening to their music is an absolute waste of time (especially if you care for what you hear)
I don't know if you will like the bands I mentioned, it all depends from what kind of music you normally listen to, if you'd like to know english trainslations of the songs, don't hesitate to mail me about it, I'll be glad to help you
oh and write here what are your opinions about the songs and the bands ;]

ps. more on 'sand poetry' : Marek Gechuta (you'd love him ;)

sdm - I love sang poetry in polish;) it is the best music that has ever been 'invented' ;) You should find Stare Dobre Małżeństwo and listem to their beautifull songs- they are excellent! Beatifull words, nice music and warm voice of the vocalist.. And if you are in Poland, visit Bieszczady and their Bieszczadzkie Anioły (Bieszczadzy are small mountains, beautifull area, calm and there arent many tourists)- it is a festival of sang poetry.. Thatd day thousends of people go to Wetlina and listen to the groups from Poland..
It is in summer so I must wait many months :(

I prefer this kind of music but I can also say that Kult is worth to listen..

Bye, ;) got to go now...

hi,

First post on phrasebase and it's related to music :> It's a deviation.

Check out Skalpel. It's a Polish nu-jazz band from Wroclaw. It was released by Ninja Tune some time ago. Superb thing!!

Tom Horn(www.tomhorn.pl), Innocent Sorcerers (released by Fluid Ounce UK)...

pozdrawiam

I think Sistars is also worth hearing

HEY sucks. Don't waist your time on that useless din.
magdalenaa_bMonday 21st of March 2005 02:11:35 AM
the best polish group - it`s my private opinion of course: Perfect, Budka Suflera, Maanam, Bajm, Stare Dobra Malzenstwo, Lombard, Czerwone Gitary, Sixteen ( find on kazaa "obudz we mnie Wenus"), Czeslaw Niemen, Kasia Kowalska, Kayah, Marek Grechuta, Tadeusz Wozniak, Dzem, Wilki, Lady Pank, Szymon Wydra, Big Cyc, IRA, Elektryczne Gitary, Pudelsi, Edyta Bartosiewcz, Myslovitz and T.Love, but stay away from Ich Troje, it`s ...
wasilFriday 08th of April 2005 04:14:02 AM
- If you're learning polish I think bands like mention Magdalena will the best for you, I like:

Kazik (rock) Kult (band with Kazik ;)) Perfect (old rock) T-Love (my favourite polish rock band) Lady Punk

From hh:

Kaliber 44, Paktofonika, Tede, DJ 600v

Many people like manieczki (polish techno), but I don't like them :), and don't listem to Ich Troje, it's really bad ...

download - hey,

You can download Polish music from here: http://mp3.wp.pl/p/index/ you won't find there many popular songs but often there's really good music! Especially in sections: alternatywna, reggae, ska (or maybe it's only what I found interesting:p). You'll find there Kazik - already mentioned, try also: Pudelsi, Bakshish, Rh+, Farben Lehre, Indios Bravos, Habakuk, Maleo Reggae Rockers, Hurt, and many many more... If you have any problems, let me know;)
:D
