Trupa Trupa

Trupa Trupa are an alternative rock band from Gdansk in Poland, which makes them a very belated first Polish band I have reviewed. Having spent some time working on the music and developing a distinctive sound, Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, Tomek Pawluczuk, Wojtek Juchniewicz and Rafal Wojczal have just released their debut LP.

I can recall dear old Maggie Thatcher, who despised Unions- vowing to destroy the National Union of Miners becoming a fan of Lech Walesa - leader of Solidarity. At the time there was the Cold War - while not the first time I was struck by the hypocrisy of politicians, it sticks in my mind.

The good news is that as a result of the movement which emerged in Gdansk, bands such as Trupa Trupa now have the freedom to breathe.

Enough I hear you cry, I don’t want history lessons, so let’s cut back to Trupa Trupa - influenced by their home-town, the music is a claustrophobic industrial electronic rock, it is impossible to listen to the out-put without visions of urban dereliction. The somber tracks are replete with strong direction and a sense of the foreboding, an effect which overall is pleasing to the ears.

Mechanistic sounds draw images of a factory life entrapment and Trupa Trupa need not move from the core of their work, which they project with a flourish. This a path ploughed by OfeliaDorme from Italy, with considerable success.
