Michal Prokop & Framus Five

Mercedes Forum, 8:00 PM

Tuesday Jul 18

Michal Prokop’s po­etry set to mu­sic has had a ma­jor in­flu­ence on a whole gen­er­a­tion of rock mu­sic fans. Con­fronted with bound­aries fixed by nor­mal­iza­tion era politi­cians in terms of mu­sic “ap­pro­pri­ate­ness” along with ideas about which and how songs should be sung, bands in­spired by Amer­i­can soul and African-Amer­i­can mu­sic fell on hard times. In or­der to suc­ceed, they were left with no choice but to turn to a po­etic lan­guage which the era’s lead­ers had trou­ble de­ci­pher­ing. With his broad sphere of in­flu­ence – in­clud­ing work as a com­poser, gui­tarist, and fol­low­ing the rev­o­lu­tion, also pre­sen­ter and for­mer politi­cian, Michal Prokop was just the man for the job. Whether you were part of the gen­er­a­tion in­flu­enced by his mu­sic back then or are just cu­ri­ous to learn more about Czechoslo­vak 80s big beat, then this Fra­mus 5 con­cert is def­i­nitely for you!
