25 kilos? That's impressive Clap I was thinking that maybe it's a cultural thing, unlike Denmark, Portugal is really not a cycling friendly country. I have the impression that most people use the bycicle not by option but when they have no other way to go somewhere Tongue

Yup completely missed this...
Thanks man - feels a whole lot lighter. Now I just need the pinched nerve running down my leg to come back to life (now on it's 8 month wuhuu!!!), so I can finally get my mojo back and start walking normally, then life will be good.
You've got a point about the culture thing. You can drive your bike to just about anywhere in Denmark...in the designated bike lane.

I guess you're likely to get more of a coherent 'real album' feel when the current lineup plays all the pieces and changes things up to make them their own.  A great idea I reckon, more bands should think like this - and give people who already have all the original tracks a much better incentive to get it.

I didn't get that one yet, but I think it is a kind of "best of, re-arranged and re-recorded".  Per Google translate from the indies.eu site:

Group UJD had set for its thirtieth anniversary for their fans, several large events. Three crosses the new album, which contains a selection of the best songs of the band's thirty year existence. Bangers chosen partly themselves fans, but who will also see new, very radical arrangements. When the band exists for 30 years, this is cause for celebration. In addition, when these 30 years filled with thousands of successful concerts, touring dozens of countries and highly appreciated line of albums, it's a reason to celebrate even more. But because the band already have at home is not only a survivor myself, but a living, active, energetic and inspiring body, this celebration just sort of a nice point in its unremitting history. Prior to 15 years ago, we already went home CD 15 drops of water, a kind of Best of the period. It is a compilation of existing recordings. Now, to its 30 years, is in place next compilation. But this time the band decided to record their songs again and in a completely or partially new coats. Jassica exchanged the piano for guitar, Hollywood has become a bit of Latin, in a Corrosion occurs Wallachian Notecka and waltz to 4 times the Mariana Islands for a moment becomes a song to a campfire, and so it is song after song, sometimes more, sometimes less. The songs on this album were half-selected fans themselves and their new names are also small test for the audience, whether they assign names of the original ... The compilation is called Three crosses and Martin Velíšek again did not disappoint. On the packaging appears hill with three crosses, essential playhouse, boom and deer (time rather reindeer), and because it is a hill can not be missing skiers. Křížcích hangs on three characters - a writer, musician and painter, word, music and pictures. At the intersection of these three categories all what I have at home in 30 years did originated and can be expected in the future will emerge.

So probably a good point of entry.  Think I need to place an order before too long.

I got that and I think it's peachy Thumbs Up

For people in Europe, this is a good place to get their albums:


I got swift delivery to the UK at a fair price.  I think there are probably many other treasures to be found there too, that I have not yet discovered.

I like Caves a lot and Fairytales From Needland. Fairytales has just had a rerelease with improved sound and a bit of a different take on some of the tracks.

Uz Jsme Doma with a new album last year? Must've slided under my radar. Really dig their 70s output.


Didn't look like it was broadly distributed, I bought direct from the band at RIO.

Looked them up on PA and it turns out I ha e exactly squat of their output. Also looked up Buldozer to see where my mind had fumbled. Turns out the Yugoslavian titles of their albums may have lead me astray...
Aaaanyway what is a good starting point to Uz Jsme Doma?

I'd say Unloved World and Fairytales From Needland are their best.

Yup Darryl it is basically a bogus Krautrock album from last year claiming to be an old forgotten gem. It is however very well done and while I don't run to it as I hate all forms of running - I do use it as a soundtrack for cycling and it works.

I know the feeling Samuel - that is buying an album based solely on the cover art;) Found quite a few humdingers that way.

Heh...without planning anything we accidentally posted clips of the same kind of atmospheric spacey almost post rocking musicClap The force is strong with this one.
I'll have to check out their previous albums. When I saw this cover I couldn't ignore it, that's how I found it LOL

I'm listening to that K-X-P album, really cool stuff Cool I didn't know Sonar either, I'll have to listen to the album that track is great Thumbs Up
