Some say there are no miracles and revelations are charlatans invention. It’s not true. Wonders will never cease. To everyone in a different way. To me they reveal themselves in the form of records like Blisko Pola. It’s true, the city of Lodz, Poland is close to the fields. It’s surrounded by one big field, actually. But the band’s music has nothing to do with unleavened folksiness. It’s sounds of the highest level. It’s the minimum of expression cumulated in the maximum of emotion.

The Axis, around which the spiral construction of the Blisko Pola music spins, is the drums and loads of percussion instruments. It’s the rhythm that steers all of the band’s compositions, although it’s neither dance nor loud or march music. Behind the hypnotic rhythm there swings the double bass. And then the voice of the leader, Miroslav z Pola and his ascetic guitar. In the end there comes the viola and sometimes the analog synth and clarinet. The music is getting dense, ascends to suddenly stop, cut like with a knife. Sometimes it flows gently, sometimes kicks wildly, attacking with completely unexpected sounds.

Miroslav z Pola – singing and harping the guitar
whnt – beat making
koolor – double bassing
Lord Gwadera – beat destroying
Ewax – viola(ting)
Paul Bishop – clarinetting/miniMOOGing
