It's become trendy for Polish rock bands whose glory days ended in the 1980s to make a comeback. The somewhat forgotten Sztywny Pal Azji is one such group. It will play at Warsaw's Hard Rock Café Feb. 26.

Sztywny Pal Azji was formed in the southern town of Chrzanów in 1986 by Jarosław Kisiński and Leszek Nowak.

As part of the Polish rock boom of the late 1980s and early 1990s, Sztywny Pal Azji went on to become one of the symbols of the transformation of Poland from a declining system of socialism to early capitalism. The group made Polish rock music history with such classics as "Wieża radości, wieża samotności," "Przybycie Makbeta" and "Póki młodość w nas."

Featuring new vocalist Bartosz Szymoniak, a winner of the Polish version of Pop Idol, the updated Sztywny Pal Azji is a blend of youth and experience, as the band's older members put it.

Feb. 26, 9:30 p.m.

Hard Rock Cafe, Złote Tarasy shopping mall, 59 Złota St., Warsaw.

Tickets cost zl.30 and 35, available at www.shortcut.pl and Traffic Club, 25 Bracka St.
