The Tomáš Kočko & ORCHESTRA band released their first album twenty years ago, and now produced its remake. At that time, the band debuted with a song named Horní chlapci [Boys from the Upper End], which referred to the Moravian Wallachian poet Ladislav Nezdařil. The re-recorded album will be launched in the Stará Pekárna music club in Brno.
Twenty years ago, Tomáš Kočko & ORCHESTRA released their debut album Horní chlapci, which was composed of poems by Nezdařil set to music. However, Ladislav Nezdařil passed away unexpectedly in the same period. “He knew we were preparing the album, he was looking forward to it and… we didn't make it,” Tomáš Kočko recalls. At the beginning of the Nezdařil – Kočko tandem stood Petr Ulrych, who introduced the then student of JAMU in Brno, Tomáš Kočko to Nezdařil's poetry, and encouraged Tomáš to set the texts of Nezdařil's poems to music.
The launch of the re-recorded album is announced to take place in the Stará Pekárna music club in Brno on 18 March.
The album Sadné zrno was the second album containing Nezdařil's poetry set to music. At that time, it was not meant for sale, but it became an inset to one half of a new edition of the poetry collection Horní chlapci. Currently, this set is sold out. “I thought it was a pity that the album was no longer available, and can never be available again. The original master vanished somewhere in the dungeon of history after all those years, and along with it the printing data of the booklet…” Kočko explains and concludes: “So the band and I decided to make ourselves happy and we made that record again to mark the anniversary. Including two new songs."
