This record aswell as the band is abit mysterious. While getting info from the net I stumbled over alot of contradicting information (like this record being from 1995, which is definately not true, my copy got published in 1976). But what seems to be fact is that this band did start in hungary and in one time of its career either completely moved or atleast recorded an album in australia (which seems rather unlikely, shouldn’t it be austria (the country neighbouring hungary) ?). And although I got three copies of this record from a library sale they all have a sticker at exact the same spot, making it hard to read the linernotes. (You gotta love these people working at a library … the backside has plenty of room for a sticker, but they put it on the text. Thanx alot.) Maybe a reader can give more info on this in the comments.

But no matter what, this record is really dope, in fact one of those that gave me a hard time deciding what tracks to put up here… Also this is a nice showoff moment for me, “look what great stuff I digged and can sample”. Hah ! It’s filled with loads of breaks, percussion loops, drumloops, stabs, hits … and a blast to just listen to (once you get accustomed to the hungarian language).

Track B1 Kinyujtom kezem (Stretching out my arms) has already been featured on the “Non Stop Beat”-mixset, A1 Hajnali enek (Song at dawn) begins with these great drums, full horn-section, a small guitar-solo with strings (something I don’t mind unlike other people who are immediately disgusted by even the smallest rock-reference in such music…), nice track. Track A2 Hol az az ember (Where is the man) has even more electric guitar, but also this amazing base groove of drums, bass, keys and guitar spiced up with a few horn-hits. B2 Hova mehetnek? (Where could I go ?) leaves a lot of space for that trumpet (?), a nice bass solo, fresh drums to sample … And as I said the rest of this record is as nice as these tracks, only one real ballad (which is not even bad either). I am glad I found this record especially because I made the mistake of ignoring Pepita-records for a few years because I thought it was all stadium-rock like the first few records I digged of that label (Fonogram, Dynamit etc.).

Discogs Entry for this record.

This record has obviously been re-released as a CD but is not widely avaible, you can still try getting it (or the vinyl on gemm, as always).

    Not a mistake, they really got to tour and record in Australia at the beginning of the ’70s. And they were absolutely huge! Shared bill with the greatest rock bands, like Stones, Kinks and Free!
    Szettort almok (Shattered Dreams) is their second LP, recorded after their return to Budapest. It was not well regarded by the authorities because its (percieved) pessimism, not in tune with official ideology. A minuscule number of copies were pressed in 1976. Soon the group disbanded.

    I think that everything published was actually very reasonable.
    But, think about this, suppose you added a little content?
    I am not suggesting your content is not solid., however suppose
    you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I
    mean Syrius – Szettört Almok on Eastern Crates is a little vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write post titles

    my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.

    This is an evaluation by the Movoto Real Estate Weblog
    , which has completed these sorts of video-game themed trend pieces for publicity in the
    past. Movoto counted the Facebook likes received by the 3 consoles of the current generation — PlayStation four, Wii U,
    Xbox One particular. By this measure, the Xbox A single comes out ahead all round,
    and in total number of states “won” — 22 to the PS4’s 19.
    The Wii U did not win any states, coming in a distant third in all of them.

    Caution – if you have issues withdrawing from benzodiazepines,
    general psychiatrists and doctors prescribing them may assert that
    you have had underlying problems that are now appearing.
    You may have reached a point in your life where you are ready to make a change, and free yourself from an abusive
    drug habit. What must be taken into consideration when considering
    choosing the most suitable alcohol detox
    centre is that detox isn’t a cure for alcoholism.
