RE:rapid received a complaint
Pretty obvious - it's equally obvious that the complaint was not made by the artists or the company. I have been looking for the band's CDs during my last 2 visits to Prague (last year and the year before) and could not find any. I am sure they have been out of print for quite some time...
This is simply the work of some idiot. Too bad, I wish more people had a chance to hear Czech folk-rock music, it is some of the best I know...

all the best from Prague, Thanks for reminding Marsyas, they were great. Unfortunately P. Kalandra died few years ago and they are not playing any more :-(( I hope I will be able to dig some of my old bootlegs of them and post it somewhere.
