Lone Rider - Skinheads Web Zine
answers by Kula (January 2008)
Oi!, can you introduce your band (members, work, age, short history) ?
Hi there! Our band was create in 1993. From '93 until present day band was few
times broke a part and change band members. Anyway, today Lumpex'75 is: Kula –
vocal, Dycha – guitar, Pawe³ – solo guitar, Zielony – bas, Cinek – drums. For
now we release one record called "To My!" (that's us!), split CD with polish
band called "All Bandits". Our unpublished songs was release on few Various
Artists records, and also you can see us on DVD release by Bandworm Rec. called
„Oi! the meeting 2005".
What's mean your name Lumpex'75 ?
Our name „Lumpex" was been taken from polish slang, and it's word for "second
hand shop", the number 75 is just year of birth older band members, and it has
nothing common with numbers like 77, 88, 14, 666, 69, so please don't invent new
Can you describe your sound ?
In the beginning it was really simple played oi! punk music, but nowhmm it's
quite difficult to describe because all band members listings to different kind
of punkrock music and many many more, by and large I can say it's something like
mixed up Oi! Music with Hard Core and Viking Rock. You will be able to hear us
on LP soon
How bands influense you ?
It's difficult to name all bands what we listinig to and like, but I'll say we
like to here all kind of good punk, oi!, HC, viking rock, RAC and also good
black metal hehe, some times psychobilly and ska
Do you play some covers ?
We don't like to play covers and we try to not to do this,but some times you can
some times you must hehe, so on our concert you can here covers like Cockney
Rejeckt "Begining of the end" with polish chenged words. In the end of 2007 we
recorded two cover song for two tributes "Tribute to Rezystencja" and "Tribute
to Ramzes & The Hooligans" – old polish skinhead bands
How many concerts did you play? With which bands did you play ? How was your
best gig ?
If you really want to hear exacly number, than we can't seys becouse we don't
count it, but it was really big bunch of it. We have occasion to play with such
stars like Retaliator, Piter & TTTB, Guitar Gangsters, Evil Conduct, The Beat,
Volxturm, Stomper 98, Loikaemie , Lousy, Operace Artaban, and practically all
good punk rock/sknheads bands from Poland.Our best two shows was in Germany,
really greate peoples and good climate. In march we will be played in London and
we hope it will be our next best show hehe.
Can you describe scene in Poland ?
It's dificult to desribe polish scene and I don't want to penetrate this. In
short it looks more than less like this: some of the polish bands won't to play
with other bands, becouse one of them release record in "this" label other in "that"
label, and main cheff of X.Rec and Y. Rec don't like each other. Stupid? Yes we
know that hehe. Lumpex'75 is recording for Oifant.Rec and generally we play
concerts with bands from this label, but not always because we don't have
prejudice or enemies in other label or bandsat least in most of them hehe.
What do you think about Czech scene ?
I think Czech scene is one of the biggest scens in Europe, You have a bunch of
greate bands and they often are invite to Poland. Personally I realy like Czech
bands and I think they doing realy good punk. We have chance to play in Hradec
Kralove, but not in full squad, and I gotta say it was really good gig,and we
were guest in good old slavonic way ;)
Can you say me something about brand Pretorian ?
Pretorian it's a street wear brand, they make clothes for peoples who have
something common with MMA sport, and for fans. Pretorian is also our sponsor
brand, ones on a wile they give us some cloathes and we ... let's say represent
Pretorian on our gigs. Don't try to find any policy shits, like it was in
Germany, becouse there is no politics in this. This is just good street wear
Have you some other hobbies besides band ?
Of course! We'r big fan of our beloved football teem called "Lechia Gdañsk", she's
going to extra league in this year... we hope ;). I'm also speedway fan wich is
very popular in Poland, average 10 000 fans on single match and I'm member of
Ultras "Wybrze¿e Gdañsk". Also we're fan of "Stoczniowiec Gdañsk" (hockey), they
have few Czech in team. Beside of that Zielony have quite unique hobby, he's a
member of II WW battles reconstructing group and he's playing a German solider
from Wermacht Grosse Deutchland. I may say that we've fucking billions of this
kind of reconstructing groups and they came from Poland, Russia, England and
USA. Beside you can meet us in any pub all over the city in every weekend,
because this is our favorite sport game ;)
