Klan biography
KLAN were a Warsaw fusion quartet born in 1969 and headed by guitarist/vocalist Marek Allaszewski. His mates were keyboard player Maciej Gluszkiewicz, bassist Roman Pawelski and drummer Andrzej Poniatowski. Their music had a remarkably mature psychedelic sound for a band from an Eastern-Block country in the early 70's - somewhat in the vein of VANILLA FUDGE albeit slightly less heavy and more melodic.

After releasing a self-titled E.P. in 1970, lyricist Marian Skolarski joined the band and composed a ballet called "Mrowisko", their best release todate. It is a majestic, flowing psychedelic concept with a very undergorund feel, full acid leads and fuzz-guitar solos, some violin and some jazzy parts. The songs are well constructed (vocals are in Polish) and the musicianship is quite good. Both the LP and the EP are now collectable items but have thankfully been reissued on a single CD in 2000. In 1993, Allaszewski reformed KLAN who released an album called "Po Co Mi Ten Raj". Perhaps due to the time lapse, it doesn't quite have the punch of the amazing "Mrowisko".

Fans of early psych prog will be amazed at the maturity of this band's early material. The compilation CD "Mrowisko + EP" is definitely recommended.

2 stars After hearning Mrowisko, I was excited to hear this EP from Klan. I will not pretend to be as impressed by the four songs on here as I was with Mrowisko. Actually, the music here is not that progressive. It is more in the vein of late 60's rock. It is not bad but not really that overly exciting.

The title track is by far the best track, being a somewhat progressive blues number. Dramatic and quite groovy. Nice one. The second track is sort of wild west-ish rock/pop song. The third song is a more heavy affair in the vein of late 60's hard rock. A so and so track. Automaty, which is the final track, is the second best one. A dreamy, tune with a harsh introduction.

All in all this EP is OK. Two tracks are alright and two are really nothing to shout about. Go for their album Mrowisko instead.

4 stars Yet again I marvel at the progressive scene in the Eastern block, behind the wall et al. I bought this album on a whim, not really knowing what it was. Since I then had discovered Niemen I thought, why not try this album out? The cover was so striking I couldn't help myself. Have I regretted this? No, not in the least.

The album starts off really nice, with birds singing, before a gentle guitar comes in, paving the way for pleasant organ. I find that to be so charming and a wonderful way to start off this progressive journey. The next track, Kuszenie, is filled with heavy rhythm, storming organ and screaming guitar. And it continues in that way, blending softness with harshness. Melody with complexity and sometimes even free-form, though not overbearingly so. Just enough free-form to add some spice to this wonderful stew.

The tracks segues into each other, making this a sort of symphonic experience. The tracks are short but since they cling together that is hardly a problem, if you think that proggers absolutely must represent themselves thorugh lengthy epics.

All in all, Mrowisko is a little gem of organ-driven prog with an East European flavor. It is a pleasure to listen to and an album that needs to be discovered by more people.

Review by kajetan

4 stars This is a really great album. A pity that the group didn't last long. "Mrowisko" ("Ant Colony") is a kind of "concept album" and there are no breaks between most of the tracks. Music here is inspired somehow by Vanilla Fudge, but it has a touch of accoustic playing, although Hammond is dominating here. A vocalist has a very specific, somehow theatrical way of singing (perhaps a little annoying for some listeners). Production is not very good, so the album's sound is a bit archaic - but it doesn't spoil it. Highly recommended.

Review by marandprod

4 stars Firstly let me say I just ran across this site and I'm very excited about its existance.

Now on to KLAN, I am a huge collector of Polish Prog, Psych, and Freak Beat--- KLAN was one of the best in their field. They were formed in 1969 after the splintered break-ups of assorted groups they were in. They were fans of Vanilla Fudge and Brian Auger and The Trinity, so you see that the outcome was a bit twisted. They were signed to tour with other like-minded Polish experimentalists, BREAKOUT which got them a record deal with Pronit/Muza.

They released the impossible to track down 4 song 7" ep "Gdzie jest Czlowiek" (Pronit EP N-0586) 1970 Translated: "Where is the sparrow?"

"Mrowisko" (Muza LP SXL 0756) 1971* Tranlated: "Ant colony"

*This was reissued in the 80's on vinyl and in 1991 on cd (Digiton 103).

The group broke up in '73. Members went on to work for Warsaw Operahouse musicals, etc. In 1992 vocalist/guitarist Marek Alaszewski release a new cd with 6 new members. The magic of course was gone...

"Po co mi ten raj" (Digiton 129) CD Translated: "What will I do with all this celebration?"
