Budka Suflera biography
Budka Suflera (Prompt Box) officially formed in 1974 in Lublin, Poland, though their history dates back to 1969. From 1971 to 1974 band was playing at the Juliusz Osterwa Theatre in Lublin, where probably their name came from. The first line-up consisted of Krzysztof Cugowski (vocals), Romuald Lipko (piano, keyboards, bass guitar), Andrzej Ziółkowski (guitar), Tomasz Zeliszewski (percussion). This line-up lasted from 1974 to 1977, when they released two progressive albums:

1975 - Cień wielkiej góry (Shadow of a Big Mountain)
1976 - Przechodniem byłem między wami... (I've Been a Passerby Among You)

In 1977 vocalist Krzysztof Cugowski left the band to start solo career. In 1980 Budka Suflera with new vocalist Romuald Czystaw released the album ''Ona przyszła prosto z chmur'' (''She Came from the Clouds'') - the last album with some progressive elements, though clearly going towards pop. Through the years, the music of Budka Suflera has been changing, from Progressive Rock, through New Wave, Hard Rock and eventully to Pop Rock.

Krzysztof Cugowski returned to the band in 1984, and stayed for good. The current (2010) line-up consists of Krzysztof Cugowski (vocal), Romuald Lipko (keyboards), Tomasz Zeliszewski (percussion), Łukasz Pilch (guitar), Mirosław Stępień (bass guitar), Piotr Kominek (keyboards).

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Budka Suflera meant to become one of the leading Rock/Soft Rock acts in Poland, but their roots were definitely progressive.The band from Lublin was formed around singer Krzysztof Cugowski and bassist Romuald Lipko in early-70's with Andrzej Ziolkowski and drummer Ryszard Siwiec completing the first line-up.After several gigs and drummer changes Zbigniew Zielinski sits behind the drum kit and Budka Suflera eventually meet success in 1974, covering Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" in Polish.This was the last recording of Zielinski with the band, as he was replaced by Tomasz Zeliszewski.Having earned a contract with Polskie Nagrania Muza they headed to their debut album, inviting Czesław Niemen and Marek Stefankiewicz to help out on keyboards, while the female vocal ensemble Alibabki participated in the female choirs,Their debut ''Cien wielkiej gory'' was finally released in 1975.

First side shows the band practicing their moves between different styles with comfort and the only common thing in all four tracks are the expressive Polish vocals.The eponymous kick off is a grandiose Space Rock piece with Niemen's moog synths in evidence and a deep lyrical content, resembling to Hungarians EAST, while the follower ''Lubic ten stary obraz'' shifts easy between acoustic mannerisms, orchestral plays with strings and complex Heavy/Blues Rock with impressive guitar breaks.''Samotny noca'' is more of a conventional Hard Rocker with a typical song structure, characterized by the edgy lead guitars and the aggresive voice of Cugowski, but with ''Jest taki samotny dom'' Budka Suflera return to a grandiose Space/Symphonic Rock with pompous keyboards and excellent guitar solos in the vein of ELOY, EAST and compatriots PROGRES 2.The flipside is captured by Budka Suflera's ambitious attempt on putting up a long epic, the 19-min. ''Szalony kon''.While not fully convincing, this a pretty good example of 70's Polish Prog with a balanced sound but a rather questionable connection between the styles.It represents nicely the band's talent, which was based on deep lyricism, complicated instrumental lines and early psychedelic influences, offering extended guitar parts, furious synth workouts by Niemen and poetic passages with Cugowski's voice leading the way.It draws influences from Heavy Rock, Classical Music and Psychedelic Rock in almost equal doses, switching between angular guitar-led runs and laid-back textures with a low tempo.

I could say that this album is fully representative of 70's Polish Prog.Stuffed with psychedelic vibes, based on expressive vocal work but also filled with intricate instrumental themes.Not the best from the country, but definitely good enough one to seek for.Recommended.

3 stars 3.5 stars really

Budka Suflera is one of better known progressive rock bands from Poland in the'70s with first two albums being very well recived both by fans and critics. Second album from 1976 named Przechodniem bylem miedzy wami...(I've Been a Passerby Among You) is a very worthy release offering symphonic prog moments with grandious arrangements melted with heavy prog passages not very far from what done in same period Birth Control on Palstic people or with Uriah Heep around Sweet freedom period. Here and there appear some sax solos and some jazz funky parts specially on bass lines. Also some keybords, mostly moog is quite well puted in the context. The guitar work is strong, going from mellow parts to more edgy all in progressive rock vein. The voical lines are ok, not really fantastic to my ears but good, fiting very well in this musical aproach. All in all more then decent album, one of the most respected from polish prog school. 3.5 stars.

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

3 stars With Polish psych/prog elder statesman Czesław Niemen guesting on Moog, Budka Suflera's debut album had a lot going for it, but set against other heavy psychedelic music of the day t feels a little uninspired. The band by and large do a competent job - though Krzysztof Cugowski's vocals are a little underwhelming - but these jams, whilst interesting, never quite attain the full potential of the format. The side-long title track finds the band getting a little ambitious at last, but even that feels flat compared with, say, the last track on Arzachel's sole album from 1969. The fact is that the prog and psych worlds had already moved on by the time this album was released, and with Niemen himself producing superior material at around the same time Iron Curtain-era isolation from Western musical innovations clearly isn't an excuse.

2 stars This Polish band certainly has been consistant at releasing albums over the years. This is their 10th release since their debut from 1975. This one was released in 1997 and it's clear that this is a talented band when it comes to creating music. While the debut was excellent and something most Prog fans would enjoy, they've pretty much become makers of poppy tunes at this point. I bet they are popular though as they do have a talent for this style of music. Vocals are in Polish.

"Takie Tango" is laid back with guitar and vocals. It picks up with a beat as the guitar comes and goes. "Radio Taxi" opens with organ, guitar and a beat as the vocals join in. He's passionate 1 1/2 minutes in, in fact I bet you can see the veins in his forehead at this point. "Jeden Raz" is piano and reserved vocals. It does get fuller and we get passionate vocals late. "Gdzie Jest Ta Krew" is catchy with vocals. "Strefa Polcienia" has this relaxed guitar and sound as the vocals join in. Passionate vocals at times and they are quite moving. This guy can sing.

"Glodny" has a good rhythm and the guitar is expressive as the vocals join in. Good stuff. Nice guitar solo 4 minutes in. "Nic Nie Boli, Tak Jak Zycie" sounds good with the higher pitched vocals. It's heavier after 1 1/2 minutes as contrasts continue. "Szukamy Sie" puts the focus on the vocals in this relaxed offering. Not a fan. "Przegrywac..." is catchy but laid back with vocals. It's fuller 1 1/2 minutes in as contrasts continue. "Bez Aplauzu" is uptempo with vocals and it's heavier too. "Po Tej Stronie Nadziei" has organ and a beat as the guitar then vocals join in. "Nowa Wleza Babel" ends it with strings and fragile vocals. Not a fan.

A tough one to recommend because it's so straight-forward with all these shorter tracks.

4 stars This is another album my Bro In Law introduced me to. This band is from Poland with Polish vocals and this their debut was released in 1975. The band I thought of most when listening to this was SBB. And I can honestly say that the instrumental work is as good as SBB and that's the biggest compliment I can give these guys. I've never been a fan of Polish vocals but man can this guy let it rip. Those vocals with the unbridled power instrumentally makes this a true must-have in my opinion.

"Cien Wielkied Gory" opens with atmosphere and female vocal melodies before fragile male vocals join in. The male vocals become passionate. Drums and guitar follow along with floating organ. Nice instrumental section before 6 minutes to the end. "Lubie Ten Stary Obraz" opens with intricate guitar melodies and sounds as the vocals join in. I like it ! It all stops before 2 1/2 minutes then a new soundscape kicks in with vocals. This is more aggressive with guitar. A slightly mellower section with strings comes in as these sections are contrasted. A guitar solo 5 minutes and check out the drum work then the organ. Nice. "Samotny Noca" has a good heavy sound with vocals. The organ leads before 2 minutes as the vocals stop briefly. "Jest Taki Samotny Dom" kicks in quite heavily but slowly before a minute. A calm with reserved vocals takes over quickly as these contrasts continue. Female vocals 3 1/2 minutes in then the male vocals join in too. It's building. So good !

"Szalony Kori" is the closing side long suite at almost 20 minutes. It opens with a gong then we get some nasty moog runs, I mean they sound evil. Drums and more join in. Vocals 1 1/2 minutes in as it calms down. The guitar, drums and vocals kick in with passion. It's RUSH-like 4 minutes in then those filthy moog runs are back. A calm 6 minutes in. Vocals follow as it becomes fuller. A change before 7 1/2 minutes as the drums and guitar show off. So impressive. Vocals a minute later. Backing female vocals after 11 minutes with the male vocals are all so passionate. Gulp. Guitar before 12 minutes and the synths join in too. A calm with vocals 13 minutes in then it kicks in again as contrasts continue. A calm with reserved vocals before 18 minutes to end it.

Just a killer album even though i'm not that into Polish vocals. Still the drum work and instrumental work in general is incredible.

Budka Suflera Eclectic Prog

Review by Emej

5 stars By way of introduction I have say that this is polish progressive rock classic.In Poland this album is something like for example Yes "Close to the Edge" or Deep Purple "In Rock" to put it simply -one of the best rock music release of all time. Budka Suflera style on this longplay can be described as mixture of hard rock in vein of Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin and progressive rock in vein of Yes or early King Crimson.Budka blends this two types of influences smoothly. We have also very strong and powerful voice of Cugowski (one of the greatest rock singer), what a pity that he is unknown abroad.Moreover I need to mention very poetical and literary lyrics.It is worth to mention that Niemen (great polish rock star of those time) took part in recording of this album and also lent Budka minimoog and hammond organ.

Cień Wielkiej Góry - track about alpinist who died during the mountain climbing, spacious with strings section.The end of the song is a little bit similar to "Let It Be" by The Beatles

Lubię Ten Stary Obraz -very Deep Purple and Free influenced track, in second part of the song we can hear hammond organ solos a bit similar to Jon Lord works.

Samotny Nocą- the simplest song of the album.Dominated by guitar riffs and hammond organ.Towards more into typical 70's hard rock.

Jest Taki samotny Dom- one of the anthem of polish rock music, amazing heavy guitar riff, gothic atmosphere, violins, organ, choir. Still unearthly song..

Szalony Koń- almost 20 minute suite.You can find almost everything here: a little bit of Purple and even Sabbath-riffing, Zeppelin style drums solos, long minimoog solos, female choir, delicate bluesy guitars, church organ.Track full of melody and ideas, a true progressive rock masterpiece

To sum up I would like to encourage you to listen to this album because progressive rock have it's masterpiece from 70's not only in UK or Germany but also in other coutries like Poland and "Cień Wielkiej Góry" by Budka Suflera is together with "Krywań Krywań" by Skaldowie the best polish rock album in golden era of rock 1969-76.
