Steven ‘Stel’ R. donated this tape from the Polish (Łódź) HC/punk band ‘Moskwa‘. It contains the demo and some extras (studio-recordings from 1984 and live in Białystok Feb. 1987) On the demo the line-up was ‘Guma’ Paweł Gumola (guitar/vocals), ‘Balon’ Dariusz Adryańczyk (bass/vocals) & ‘Wózek’ Jarek Woźniak (drums). By the time this tape was sent out ‘Guma’ was joined by Dariusz Malejonek (bass) & ‘Gogo’ Tomasz Kożuchowski (drums; also in ‘Armia’).

review in Metallised #11

A bit after this they released (on a Polish state label; there was no other way back then) their first (self-titled) LP which I reviewed in Tilt! #5: >>An album that reached me via East-Berlin… It sursprised me not just a little bit ’cause it doesn’t sound Polish at all (whatever that might be…). You’ll understand I can’t say much about the lyrics. Their music is fast HC with some cross-over touches and sounds very good. It’s certainly worth your attention.<<


We wanted to play punk-rock and recorded the Nigdy! tape for the main reason to get concerts, and to send out a decent message and offer people music different from what was on the radio/TV (that was just shit)…
