Sharpe Festival / Louder Than War

„Oh my good God, I have seen the light! How have Trupa Trupa evaded me for so long? They played here last year becoming a bit of a LTW favourite when John covered them. The frontman is a ringer for Syd Barrett right down to the heads-down glissando guitar wailing from his Gibson SG. Fingers a blur as he hammers the strings up and down creating an all-enveloping fuzz. There is a dark almost industrial element to Trupa Trupa part Eastern European tropes, almost military chants before exploding in haunting guitars. So many influences – so much to take in!

Sharpe Festival / Under the Radar magazine

Trupa Trupa zagrała jeden z najciekawszych koncertów na Sharpe Festival wg Under the Radar magazine.

„Polish outfit Trupa Trupa have just signed a deal with legendary U.S. label Sub Pop, and within precisely 45 seconds of their opening number it’s easy to see why. Their uncompromising blend of post-punk, grunge, and psych rock makes for a lethal concoction that’s one part Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, one part Hawkwind, and the rest garnered from any number of late ’80s slacker bands you’d care to mention (we’ll go for Dinosaur Jr).”

Trupa Trupa zagrała jeden z najlepszych koncertów na Sharpe Festival wg Full Moon Magazine.

„Poláci opět zasahují, vedle suverénních Trupa Trupa zaujalá i trojice z městečka Sadki. Jejich sofistikovaná elektro psychedelie se skvělým zpěvem bavila náramně.”

CBC / Louder Than War

„Grzegorz Kwiatkowski is lead singer with Polish post-punk band Trupa Trupa, an outfit I saw for the first time in Bratislava last week. Yesterday, his documentary on ‘The Invisible Shoes of Stutthof Concentration Camp’ was broadcast on radio CBC. Trupa Trupa sits squarely in the dark poetic visions of Joy Division and Ist Ist – if you haven’t heard them then check them out on Spotify and Youtube. Their performance at Sharpe Festival last week was a true highlight. Dalej CBC / Louder Than War

Reportaż i artykuł z radia CBC – The invisible shoes of Stutthof concentration camp

„In 2015, the poet-musician Grzegorz Kwiatkowski made a strange discovery at the site of the former Stutthof concentration camp in Poland, something he calls „a carpet of abandoned shoes”. But these were more than shoes: they were both artifacts and symbols of the Holocaust, as well as a flashpoint of nationalist denialism and historical amnesia — especially in the current climate of authoritarianism, and the rising ghosts of neo-fascism.”

You may or may not have seen this inconspicuous four piece from distant Gdansk at last year’s Colors of Ostrava or this year’s Sharpe festival in Bratislava, but their remarkable mix of punk, psychedelic, pop or noise has been noticed by journalists across Western Europe and their fourth album has been released on the British label Blue tapes. The band speaks both Swans and Beatles in one breath, and journalists talk about Syd Barrett, Mogwai or Radiohead, which – though not painting a picture of very happy music – raises the audience’s growing respect and desire to understand the ambiguous and unscheduled songs.

Nenápadnou čtveřici z dalekého Gdaňsku jste už mohli vidět na loňských Colours of Ostrava nebo letošním bratislavském Sharpe festivalu, ale jejich pozoruhodného mixu punku, psychedelie, popu nebo noise si už všimli i novináři v Západní Evropě, a jejich čtvrté album nakonec vyšlo na britském labelu Blue tapes. Kapela mluví jedním dechem o Swans i Beatles, a novináři zas o Sydu Barrettovi, Mogwai nebo Radiohead, což ve výsledku – ačkoli opravdu nejde o příliš veselou hudbu – vzbuzuje stále větší respekt publika a jeho chuť porozumět nejednoznačným a neprvoplánovým skladbám.
