All-Poland Zgniłość is an offshoot of Świetliki from Krakow, and its key figures are poet Marcin Świetlicki and pianist Michał Wandzilak, who are joined in their musical and verbal ambitions by instrumentalists from the Tricity and by Professor Mariusz Czubaj, a Warsaw-based anthropologist and writer who plays the saxophone amateurishly and heroically – as he once put it himself.

Zgniłość describes their musical trajectory as post-post-ironic-post-wave-postyass. As befits a jazz-rock supergroup, the band occasionally records and releases albums, but concerts (or rather happenings) are their thing. Here, everything mixes with everything, with controlled chaos above all, but whatever happens, Świetlicki’s blasé melorecitations will always defend themselves as a genre in their own right. That is, of course, if you don’t die laughing at some point or get hit by a piece of shrapnel during a collective improvisation combined with the smashing of instruments.
