FairyTaleShow is a band from Ząbkowice Śląskie, made up of four different personalities. The handsome and bloody-minded one who’s all fingers and thumbs, the lazy altruist who brings joy to the world, the drummer who’s fighting a fierce battle with obesity, and the heavy who appreciates meat and women – a line-up that couldn't have formed a conventional band. They don’t play beautifully and they don’t create ‘musical landscapes’. They play energetic, dirty British rock.read more Krystyna Prońko
