Lady Pank is a popular Polish rock band. It was started in 1982 in Warsaw by Jan Borysewicz and Andrzej Mogielnicki. Its first famous song was “Mała Lady Punk” (Little Lady Punk). Lady Pank garnered some attention in the United States in 1986 when MTV placed the video for the band’s single “Less Than Zero” on heavy rotation.
Lady Pank is quite a curiosity on the Polish musical market. They got popular before they were actually… formed! The group, which was originally planning to call itself “Żużel”, received a lot of media coverage as a result of a skilfully conducted promotional campaign combined with group’s unquestionnable talent.
Lady Pank’s lineup has changed many times over the years. The most frequent changes concerned the drummers and guitar-players, but the group has always remained a quintet with an easily-recognizable guitar sound. The core of the group are Jan Borysewicz and Janusz Panasewicz, who have been constituting the image of the group from the very beginning.
Lady Pank is a quintet, although there have been times when more musicians were involved. Despite all changes in the lineup, the basic shape of the group remains the same: lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass and drums. The role of the frontman is played by Janusz Panasewicz, with occasional help from Jan Borysewicz who sings a couple of songs too.
The band’s most popular songs are: “Tańcz głupia, tańcz”, “Mniej niż zero”, “Wciąż bardziej obcy”, “Kryzysowa narzeczona”, “Zamki na piasku, “Tacy sami”, “Zostawcie Titanica”, “Mała wojna”, “Zawsze tam gdzie ty”, “Znowu pada deszcz”, “Na granicy”, “Stacja Warszawa”.
The recording history of Lady Pank is impressive. Their discography consists of about 20 albums and over 200 tracks, many of which exist in a few versions (eg. studio, live, English-language, acoustic, techno). Juni 28, 2004 saw the issue of the latest Lady Pank’s album so far – “Teraz” (“Now”). (by wikipedia)
