I always  have a good time playing music with these folks. I’ve included a short video indicative of the genre of music that is played.

Let’s see "The Insect Trust" available for download

I thought I knew of all the eclectic music of the late 60s and 70s. How did I possibly miss The Insect Trust?

I went to iTunes, Amazon and Google Play on a quest to find their albums to download but came up with nothing.

I never would have heard of them if it weren’t a Fresh Air Segment on them called  Insect Trust: An American Band Deconstructed which inspired me to look for them.

Luckily I found some YouTube recordings. Much of the music from that era has faded into obscurity for good reason, but this band needs to be re-discovered and distributed.

Are you listening Google Play?

Przybyli ułani pod okienko – translation please?

Some of this music I have heard all my life with no idea of what the lyrics mean. I have a book of Polish songs with Polish/English lyrics but the index only has the English titles and the Polish “First Lines” which is pretty useless to me.  This tune was always a big hit with me and I’m guessing like so many other rousing tunes, it’s subject matter deals with military oppression. Any help would be most welcome.
