Už jsme doma will be christening their new album Kry today

The Kabinet múz will be hosting a legend of the Czech alternative scene. The band Už jsme doma (“We’re home already”) will be presenting its new album after gap of eight years, Kry (“Icebergs”).

Už jsme doma was formed in Teplice in 1985. In its beginnings, it was joined by Miroslav WanekRomek Hanzlík from the punk band FPB. Maybe that is the reason that one can hear the punk roots and the influence of the avant-garde in their music. The band has gone through a lot of intensive performing in foreign clubs. Its composition is made up of Miroslav Wanek (guitar, keyboards, vocals and composition), Pepa Červinka (bass, vocals and smile), Adam Tomášek (trumpet and vocals), Vojta Bořil (drums) and Martin Velíšek (brushes).

The album Kry was made after an eight-year creative break. Miroslav Wanek says about it, that: “Kry are for Už jsme doma a symbol of the passing nature of life but also the fight against it. It is a symbol of cycle and continuity, the consciousness of belonging with that which has passed and that which is still to be. The consciousness of responsibility when taking on the baton in the relay, carrying it for your section and then passing it on. The album is also dedicated to human icebergs, the ones that helplessly float on the waves of the Mediterranean and melt so fast that no one even notices them.”

The christening of the Kry album will take place today, on 28 November 2018 from 8 p.m. at the Kabinet múz.

The municipal council of Velká nad Veličkou decided already in mid-April that this year's Horňácké Festivities (original name: Horňácké slavnosti) would not take place on the traditional dates around the feast of St. Mary Magdalene, and their scope, previously meant to be of three to five days, would also be modified. Obviously, it was impossible to foresee the development of lockdown measures towards the third week of July, but musicians from the Horňácko district tried to come up with at least a partial alternative solution in order to maintain continuity. Eventually, two concerts were officially held on two consecutive Saturdays:  On 18 July,  live broadcast of a public radio recording of Czech Radio Brno under the title Hrajte že ně, hrajte aneb Horňácké trochu jinak (Play for Me, or Horňácké Festivities in a Slightly Different Fashion) took place at the Culture House in Velká nad Veličkou. A week later, at a sports complex in Javorník, a traditional competition for "the biggest expert on Horňácko peasant songs" was held under the auspices of the Horňácko Dulcimer Band of Libor Sup. Needless to say, both events have found their spectators and listeners.  more

The Brno-based rock band Kulturní úderka (which translates loosely as "Culture Brigade"), led by singer and guitarist Štěpán Dokoupil, did not keep its fans waiting for too long this time. While there was a fifteen-year break between their first and second albums, the new album Black Metall was released less than two years after the previous album Sarajevská Katarzija (Sarajevo Catharsis). The name of the new album must be handled with care. Úderka has never had anything to do with black metal as a music genre. And once again, we are treated not to metal, but to relatively raw rock, which in some moments is pleasantly softened by the keyboard of Omer Blentič, or the trumpet of their guest artist Jan Kozelek.  more

Cultural life has endeavoured to move into a sterile and "life-safe" social networking environment in an unequal struggle against the viral phantasm and government lockdown regulations. In the darkest months, music institutions competed with one another in staging recordings of memorable concerts, and major opera houses broadcast to the world those of their performances that gained the most success from spectators.  more

Shortly before the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, the Brno-based group Plum Dumplings released a new album. As opposed to their official debut L'épitaphe des papillons (The Epitome of Butterflies, 2014), sung in French, the band went for Czech lyrics this time. We are talking to the band's vocalist, who presents herself as Adéla Polka.  more

Oldřich Veselý, a Brno-based singer, composer and keyboard player, died in January 2018. In February 2019, the 10th Brno Beatfest, dedicated to his memory, took place in the Semilasso music hall. And a year later, a CD recording of this concert was released under the title Malý princ [The Little Prince], complemented by several bonus items.  more
