I met Polaroid Android in the CRK squat, Wroc?aw in 2008 while touring around with Tupolew (featuring members of Gestammelorchester as featured on OPN006 Primer 02), where he and the other residents cooked for and entertained us. Mid-conversation, he dragged me into his studio, turned up the bass-end and played me Polaroid Anroid, from start to finish. I was very very drunk on dodgy yellow Polish vodka and nodded my way through the whole thing, pretty assured that I was having a good time with Hubert, the friendliest, jolliest anti-fascist punk I’ve met. Groggy the next morning, we set off towards the next venue and somehow I found ‘Husbands’ (an early demo of M??owie) and ‘Definicje’ on my iPod. I listened to it over and over and over…
This album is for people who like Company Flow, Cannibal Ox, D-Styles, Public Enemy or even PIL. Highlights include Kocham Wielkiego Brata, Wolno?? S?owa and, my favourite, Mezowie; a track about domestic violence. I don’t know what it is about this tune, but, even though I can’t understand a word, I absolutely believes that she means it. And that’s dope.
8 tracks of dark-as-fuck hip-hop about nasty things in the world that need to be put right.
Because of the complexities of organising a release on 3 labels simultaneously, plus the added complexities of one of those labels being a free label and not forgetting Open Music’s wish to not negatively affect the possibility of Polaroid Android, Anteny Krzyku & Qulturap losing lots of money, OPN010 – Polaroid Android – Definicje will stay in the ‘Coming Soon’ for now.
