Who was more important: Chopin or Einstein?
Artur: Definitely, Einstein was more important because without him there
would not be (today’s) world, there wouldn’t be anything.
Would you like to perform the Polish anthem?
Wojtek: Someday, I would really like to perform the Polish anthem, but standing on
a green playing field and being in the national football team.
I was always fascinated by it.
Artur: Are you aware that it will not be possible?
I could agree if this was performance of the anthem singing just for
myself in some important moment, however, these moments are rather rare.
On the other hand, it would be harder to perform it in public. First of
all, the song itself is rather difficult and I always had problems with
mode, which was too low/deep for me. So, personally I would not get along
What song should be the anthem of the revolution?
Artur: Some time ago, my friend, who represents/leads music company
releasing from time to time CD’s of very interesting groups, brought me a
demo of band from Łódź. He played it and there was the song of group Cool
Kids of Death titled “Mamy butelki z benzyną i kamienie” (*1). There was
something special in that song, what reminded me the film “Natural Born
Killers”. That song increased somehow the level/amount of revolt which
every human has hidden inside. In fact, after listening to it, I felt that
if I had any bottle in my hand I could have gone outside on the street and
throw it. It seems that that song really promotes in me revolutionary
approach to reality.
What thing has shocked you lastly?
Wojtek: Recently, I felt like I was to cry when I saw an interview where
Anna Dymna (*2) talked with little boy affected by extremely rare disease. In
Poland, there are about five children with that disease. Even government had
no idea that given sickness existed and children need huge help. So, a
face of that boy, his manner of talking... he was few years old, however,
his life experience made him a mature man. He talks in such a way that I
was moved and shocked.
Artur: It is hard to talk about any shocking this right now. I think it is
What Polish song would you use to show the love to someone?
Artur: “Kocham cię jak Irlandię” (laugh) (*3)
Notes and references
*1: "We have stones and bottles with
benzine” Later on, that „demo” became quite popular in Poland when Cool
Kids released official CD (I even saw it on some Polish charts, however,
it is rock and „hard to listen for many people” type of music).
Dymna is a Polish popular and likable actress in her 50s.
*3: „I love you like Ireland” Quite old (80s???) Polish song. I would treat
Artur’s answer as kind of joke because, nice and romantic as it is, this
song would be chosen by maaaaaaany people because of its simple and
obvious message and it is kind of tendentious answer in fact. It is really
hard to explain! It is like if he would choose „Love me tender” by Elvis or
any other well-known song.
