    Hi Everybody,
    I am currently looking for a house to buy in the Czech Rep. countryside to move to with the wife and daughter. Hence I thought I would introduce myself as I am going to be asking a lot of questions and asking for your insight over the comming months/years until I can figure out how everything works there.

    Cheers
    Rangoon

    The subject reminds me the famous sentence: Tady je Lond├Żn, Karel Kyncl :)

    London calling to the faraway towns
    Now war is declared - and battle come down
    London calling to the underworld
    Come out of the cupboard,you boys and girls
    London calling, now don't look to us
    Phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
    London calling, see we ain't got no swing
    'Cept for the reign of that truncheon thing

    CHORUS
    The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
    Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin
    Engines stop running, but I have no fear
    Cause London is drowning and I, live by the river

    London calling to the imitation zone
    Forget it, brother, you can go at it alone
    London calling to the zombies of death
    Quit holding out - and draw another breath
    London calling - and I don't wanna shout
    But while we were talking I saw you nodding out
    London calling, see we ain't got no high
    Except for that one with the yellowy eyes

    CHORUS x2
    The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
    Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin
    A nuclear era, but I have no fear
    Cause London is drowning and I, I live by the river

    Now get this
    London calling, yes, I was there, too
    An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
    London calling at the top of the dial
    And after all this, won't you give me a smile?
    London Calling

    ...got to listen to it at once:)

    Yeah, you 've got to love the Clash! Not as good as the Stones though, or the Libertines come to think of it. Any good Czech bands out there? Who should I look out for?

    Thanks for that, I will listen to it a few times to see if I can get into it. Cannot understand the text though as my Czech language knowledge is zero at this time. What music do I like? Stones,Babyshambles,Zemfira.....I like bands who play guitars and write their own songs, usual stuff.
