Searching, Breaking, Building-and Singing

Legendary Polish rock band SBB (Search, Break, Build) will perform at Warsaw's Stodoła Club Dec. 9. The band was founded in 1971 and was originally called the Silesian Blues Band. Two years later it became part of the Niemen band to support well-known Polish singer Czesław Niemen.

The SBB band is made up of singer and multi-instrumentalist Józef Skrzek, guitarist Apostolis Anthimos, and drummer Jerzy Piotrowski. Up until 1980 the trio recorded many albums in Poland and abroad and performed hundreds of European concerts in the former Czechoslovakia, Germany, Bulgaria, Sweden and Denmark, and also played in the United States.

The band staged comebacks many times after 1989. Its concerts are available on CDs.

The band's "Pilgrim" song harks back to the band's progressive-rock roots and the friendship between Skrzek and Niemen. The composition is based on the poem by Cyprian Kamil Norwid, a 19th-century Polish poet.

SBB's New Century album, and the "Duch Pokoleń" track in particular, pays homage to Bob Moog, the inventor of the electronic synthesizer.
