XIII. století

web, facebook, instagram

There is a no bigger name on the Czech Gothic scene than XIII. století. And not only here. The legend of gothic rock, which arose in 1990 on the ruins of the punk cult HNF, is rightly considered a star even in our neighbourhood. For more than thirty years, there has been no one, who could dethrone this werewolf pack. And the live gigs confirm, “The Thirteen” still has enough strength even after such a long time…

Guitar, electro and dark beats, that’s Munroe. The band consists of poet Jan Kunze and Vladimir Jaške. Instrumental minimalism, black and white aesthetics, a rawness referring to Jarmusch’s Dead Man and a bit of Jeseník voodoo. Munroe, this is tribal rock and roll, built on a distinctive riff and a shamanic groove. The song “Ochutnávač” is from their second album “Divoké kvítí”.

Panda: “When the text was being created, the feminine theme of a so called „good girls“ jumped to my head. It is about good girls craving recognition, who blindly fulfil external demands while completely forgetting their worth, completely controlled by what others think of them because they have fallen into the feeling that they are bad. And then the moment hits and you can’t be in it for a second longer. Maybe we can feel abused, but primarily abused by ourselves.”

Body Of Pain

Jana Vytiska doesn’t need much introduction. Those who knew their way around the darkened Prague clubs of the pre-COVID era could not fail to bump into the garage Dorian Gray and the successful painter at least five times a week. His musical alter ego first worked in band Johnny the Horse, but during lockdowns he put his guitar in a corner, got himself some analogue synths and with his girlfriend Tereza Ovčačíková founded a new coldwave/darkwave project Body of Pain. They applied their absolute love for the genre on their debut “We No Longer Exist Anymore”. You’d be hard pressed to find a sexier band on the current scene. And at the same time it is a musically perfect reminiscence of good old EBM.

Hank Rosse & The Light Beyond

“Who will write a song for me?” These were the requests on a songwriters’ forum. So Hank Rosse wrote „A Song For Me“. The lyric ended up as a hymn of egoism in a romantic relationship backdrop. Despite efforts to be inspired by current rock-pop (from Mars), echoes of SOM finally stick out of it.
