Options January 27, 2016: NIEMEN
A 3-hour celebration of the life and work of Czesław Niemen, from his early 60s James Brown-influenced soul recordings, through his 70s synthesizer experiments, to his inexplicably bizarre but brilliant final album of 2001 before succumbing to cancer in 2004.

Hey Dean and James - Canonize Rib Keys is the best of those
  Wed. 1/27/16 7:13pm Dean:

Tip of the iceberg. If you substitute a Roman "l" for the Slavic "ł" in Czeław's name you get some doozies, too: Eczema Slew Inn, Mescal Wine Zen...

Rich! Glenn!
  Wed. 1/27/16 7:27pm Dean:

The album title translates as "Watercolors," which is apt, given the shirt and condition of the jacket.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/27/16 7:27pm Rich in Washington:

I onced tweeted a Niemen picture at Emo Philips and he retweeted it. A year o so later, I was on the street smoking outside of a nightclub and he wandered out the back door. I was going to tell him that I was the guy who tweeted the picture of the weird Polish rock star at him but he really looked like he needed some Emo time to himself - so we just awkwardly waved at each other.

I have that album, Rich -- it's what I played Allilah offa :)
  Wed. 1/27/16 7:31pm Dean:

It's fantastic stuff. Reminds me of Italian prog: Le Orme, Banco...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/27/16 7:31pm Rich in Washington:

this is great. I've only seen pictures of Niemen on countless 'kooky' album cover sites but have never heard him until now, myself.
  Wed. 1/27/16 7:32pm Dean:

Read Ciamcialamcia Twist first as Clambake Twist. Clambake is one of my favorite words. It "rhymes" with hambone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/27/16 7:35pm Rich in Washington:

That IS the same shirt! You're right! Maybe his grandma made it for him and his mother insists he wear it - kinda like our school pictures traumas. Or maybe it's just me.

It's great you guys are doing a tribute. He was the Man in the 60s/70s... I feel was he born in the US, England he would have an amazing international career. Still he did well, early on touring and recording in the West... You got to remember that even getting your hands on an American or British rock album was a challenge as none of these were sold in Poland during the Communist era...
