JESTE JSME SE NEDOHODLI-S/T, LP, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, 1990




Totally engrossing and highly obscure Czech sturm und drang rife with all the declamatory vocalese, minor key angularities and brooding vibes you'd anticipate from Czech dissident rock, though unlike their often more blustery brethren, JJSE just as often recast the proceedings into a more melancholically reflective posture that's equally enthralling.

It's very shame for non-Czech speaking people you can't understand lyrics - it's very important! Jeste jsme se nedohodli were one of the most important new wave band in the Eighties in Czechoslovakia - witty lyrics and music with Beefheartian edge. Anyway I strongly recommend to check it out!

One of the best East Europe progressive records I've heard.
Would be so great to hear anything else from this band, if there's anything else.

Thanks.

Maybe some of Czech people could help us here with it? :)
At least it would be very interesting to know the point of their lyrics - is it political, love lyrics, fantasy, horror stories or something else?
