Psí Vojáci

07-09-2008

Hello and welcome to another edition of Music Profile which, this month, centres upon the Prague-based rock group ‘Psí Vojáci’ (or ‘Dog Soldiers’), led by the charismatic songwriter, singer and pianist Filip Topol. Psí Vojáci started as an underground band during the Communist regime, but enjoyed probably their biggest success after its fall in 1989. From the very beginning their sound was dominated by Filip Topol’s piano as well as dark, expressive lyrics. We begin with a song called ‘Černý sedlo’ or ‘Black Saddle’.
