Kálmándy, Ferenc. A Trabant zenekar a pécsi Nevelési Központban, 1983. Fotográfia
The photograph was taken during a concert by the underground band Trabant in Pécs. The band released only one single (Eszkimó asszony fázik [The Eskimo Woman is Freezing, Hungaroton, 1984, SPS 70631). The songs were recorded for János Xantus’s film of the same title. Xantus’s movie is a typical representation of Hungarian film art of the 1980s, the so-called new sensibility, which merged neo-avantgarde style with postmodern irony. These films often showed contemporary new wave bands from Budapest. The songs played in the films were also important because these bands had no opportunities to release their own records. Their other tracks were disseminated as homemade tape recordings. Trabant has made no official production since the single was published. Copyright owner Gábor Lukin, who lives in the USA, refuses to release Trabant’s songs. The photograph shows lead singer Marietta Méhes, keyboardist János Másik, and bassist Gábor Lukin.
