Art hurts. Thanks God.

Liars – Sisterworld
This is dark, consciously compromise-free music. If you want to know what is the difference between boybands dressed as rockers and the real stuff, this is it. But prepare yourself for some serious discomfort.

Spam – Karel Gott Prager
Vladimir 518, David Vrbík, Ondřej Anděra

KB bank building at Prague’s Smíchov is definitely one of the worst pieces of 80’s architecture, Nová scéna of National Theatre in Prague rises debates still after decades and building of former Federal Assembly is acceptable with huge amount of memory loss. These two rappers (and visual artists) and a sound engineer didn’t convinced me that Karel Prager is the biggest architect of 20th century in Czech Republic. I don’t like what he did and I don’t like his collaborative approach to the communist regime. I don’t like very much the way he changed Prague and I don’t think he was a prophet or something like that. But I understand reasons why these guys like him, probably more or less as a symbol of a landscape change and lust for rutting and building – something we, people living in open-air museum, can understand. A fist into the face of Prague in architectural sense transformed into an hour of aggressive and progressive audiovisual composition. I can imagine this can be the new way how college lectures should look like in 21th century. Intense, deep dive into the theme. You can feel how Pragers architecture hurts the city. Seen live in October in former Federal Assembly building and a week ago at Nová scéna.
