Bands are living and volatile organisms. It can be said that every few years there is a “generation change”. Of course, the older bands stay (so you can swim in the still bay you know perfectly well), but if you really want to be refreshed, surprised or shocked, you need to swim in a wild river. You need to jump in cold, deep, running water and get carried away… You may not like it and avoid it or this bath can make you feel more alive. On the other hand, it’s important not to forget about your roots: the bands which helped you become the musician/monster/person you are. In my case, it is the community around the label Silver Rocket. I am proud to have grown and have been involved with them – both as a young promoter and as a musician (label rosters to be recommended – already dead or still alive – e. g. Zkouška sirén, Lyssa, Gnu, Deverova chyba, Or). If you are a fan of the 90’s, enter their website. One provocation at the end: Prague is kind of European Portland – the 90’s never ended here, and the prolongation gave us a chance to experience past times mixed up with present times. Ideal for life of an indie artist.
