BRYGADA KRYZYS (Buy CDs by this artist)
Brygada Kryzys (Polish Tonpress) 1982
Brygada Kryzys (UK Fresh) 1982

This semi-underground (and I don't mean that figuratively) Polish band is not exactly in the mainstream of world punk rock, but does play a slightly toned-down version of high-octane guitar (and sax) raunch that compares favorably to bands from Bauhaus to the Sex Pistols. While not breaking any new creative ground, Brygada Kryzys is a fascinating and credible example of stylistic transliteration from one culture to a rather different one.
