"Stare Taśmy is a Polish typical supergroup, at least by Krakow standards. The musicians have quite an impressive background, including punk, improv, experimental, and even classical music. They've joined forces here to let out a loud shriek of angry disbelief, triggered by the general shape of the current society and the amount of malarkey in Polish public discourse. The album is titled Kryzys Czytelnictwa and consists of six punk, jazz, and religious chants, all combined to form this quite specific, powerful music. The genre they represent (and actually invented, too) is called "dark prog reality stand-up": hysterically serious compositions are filled with sampled voices of politicians, decades-old speeches found on abandoned anonymous cassette tapes and articles from current newspapers read out loud without any changes to the silliness and hatred of the original texts. Because there's no need to criticize anyone anymore, the world is perfect as it is. They just appreciate the details. Stare Taśmy is: Małgorzata Tekla Tekiel - bass; Paulina Owczarek - baritone sax; Tomek Chołoniewski - drums; Marcin Barski - voice and samples." - Fourth Dimension .
