Dezerter formed back in 1981 under the name SS-20. Grabowski has been a central part of the band ever since, writing both music and lyrics for the band. Now the book he wrote about why he has dedicated most of his life to this resilient outfit of old punx has been translated into English. You can get it from all bad bookshops but it will be cheaper from Active Distribution. Do yourself a favour, buy yourself a fascinating book about a PUNK ROCK band that outlived the communist GOVERNMENT it grew up against and still defies the authorities today. 

 

From Wiki Punk;

Dezerter founded as SS-20 in 1981 in Warsaw is one of the most popular punk bands from Poland.

They had to change the name to Dezerter because of the reaction of the Communist authorities.

With fast guitar riffs and intelligent lyrics written by Grabowski its concerts have drawn thousands of fans and its LPs were very popular, especially in the late 80s and early 90s.

The most famous Dezerter's concert took place during the 1984 Jarocin Festival in Jarocin, Poland and it was attended by some 20,000 people. The concert was recorded and later parts of it were released on a LP "Underground out of Poland".

Dezerter however is not widely known in other countries perhaps because the band refrains from singing in the English language.
