Classic (CD)
e Matadors rank among the most legendary bands from behind the Iron Curtain. In 1966 The Matadors were the house band at the Slunicko beat-club in Prague, playing versions of 'I'm A Man', 'My Generation' and the like. In 1967 their first release was the EP 'Farmer John'. Later on, they were also featured on Night Club 7 967 along with their rivals Olympic and some dreadful entertainment pop stuff. The neutral sleeve and label doesn't specify which tracks the artists are performing, but The Matadors played at least three selections: 'Don't Bother Me', 'Get Down From The Tree' and 'Old Mother Hubbard'. Unlike The Primitives (Prague's psychedelic underground band) they were able to record a complete album in 1968. This is perhaps the best sixties album from this area, displaying Hladik's superb fuzz guitars playing aggressive beat and r&b close to early Pretty Things and Kinks. Seven tracks were original compostions, the remainder were great versions of songs by John Mayall, Bob Dylan and others. The album is almost impossible to find at all nowadays, let alone a copy in good condition.
