Free market music
The independent rap and rock band IdiotHead from Wrocław, Poland is the continuation of the band CO.IN. It's not their aim to meet the expectations of the majority, sometimes their songs meets with pop, other times their songs are full of aggression.

Today the programme has divided itself into two parts. In the first part I will play relaxed independent music, like folk, fusion, rock ballads and singer-songwriters. The second part will be much less peaceful. There I will play genres like classic rock, hard rock and techno.

I start with one of the best known folk bands from Poland. Perhaps our regular listeners can guess already which band that might be.
