Brygada Kryzys is one of the most important and most influential Polish rock/punk/reggae bands. Founded in 1981 by two already well-known musicians and composers from Warsaw - Robert Brylewski - guit., voc. (previously Kryzys) and Tomasz LipiÅ„ski - guit., voc. (previously Tilt).
The musicians describe their music as "punkadelic", claiming they have two sources of inspiration - early punk and psychedelic of the second half of the 60. The first planned gig in Gdansk is canceled because its organizers do not like the message of BK which was regarded as too political.
