RSC biography
RSC is a Polish Crossover Prog band described by one of our members (ProgShine) as 'The Polish Kansas'. The band consisted of Zbigniew DZIALA (vocals), Waldemar RZESZUT (guitar), Krzysztof DZIUBA (bass), Wiktor KUCAJ (keyboards), Andrzej BALAWENDER (violin, piano, keyboards), Michal KOCHMANSKI (drums)

RSC released "Fly Rock" and "RSC" in 1983 before taking the next ten years off. In 1994, they released the compilation album, "Mataton Rockowy" which consisted of remastered music from their first two albums, repackaged and delivered in the CD format. Their early sound is described as mostly AOR or symphonic rock, though the prominence of Andrzej BALAWENDER's violin leads to an obvious comparison to Kansas. The band then went on to release four more albums over the next fifteen years and finally a single in 2012 exploring a variety of styles from Neo Prog on 1995's "Czas Wodnika" to a jazzier sound for the 1997 release "Parakletos".

Fans that enjoy vocals sung on Polish and the music of KANSAS or Neo Prog should give RSC a spin.

3 stars RSC made a huge impact when they started in the Polish progressive scene in the easily Eighties, and with the violin being of major importance, they soon became known as the "Polish Kansas". After the debut there was a gap of ten years before they then released a series of albums, only to disappear from the scene again until 2008, when 'Aka Flyrock' was released. The first thing one notices from looking at the personnel involved is that only singer Zbigniew Działa and keyboard player Wiktor Kucaj are still there from 'Fly Rock', released in 1983, but guitarist Waldemar Rzeszut first made his appearance on 'Czas Wodninka' in 1996, so the only new boy is guitarist Marcin Percel. With no violin, the sound is obviously quite different from what many be looking for, but the result is something that is still really enjoyable on first hearing.

For a band that has been around for so long, albeit with quite a few large gaps, one might expect there to be a much larger Seventies influence on the music, but the most prevalent decade is definitely that of the Eighties, as they bring the electronic pop sound of bands like Thompson Twins into a more progressive arena, mixed with American style AOR. The result is an album that is surprisingly accessible, even with all the lyrics in Polish. Strongly crossover in outlook, as opposed to the AOR prog style with which they made their name, this is an enjoyable album for those that want their music to be light and fluffy as opposed to dense and complex.

Thanks to Roland113 for the artist addition.
