Noční pták [Nightbird] (Fidler & Konopásek)

Musical duo: Luboš Fidler - vocals, lyrics, electric guitar, drums, amplified window shutters, accordion and composed songs; Zdeněk Konopásek - drums and cymbals, trumpet. And almost regular guest, Štěpán Pečírka - voice, bass.

Luboš Fidler is one of the most important and interesting performers of the Czech alternative music. It is well-known that he, as bass guitar player, was founding member of alternative rock groups Švehlík/Stehlík. He also played in MCH Band, Kilhets and other bands of the time. In the early 1980s he was involved in the minimalist-experimental trio Janota-Fidler-Richter. Later on, he created various sound installations (e.g. for the Orbis Pictus exhibition) and continued in a number of collaborations, including Oldřich Janota. We met first already in the beginning of 1980s, but it was only during Summer 2011 when we established a musical duo. Our music is not for big and wide audiences. It is partly composed and partly improvised. Songs with short and absurd lyrics mingle with free playing.
