[1986] Siekiera - Nowa Aleksandria



Siekiera is a Polish band from the '80s that is usually classified as "Coldwave", a dark, European form of post-punk (think Bauhaus, Joy Division, Siouxsie and the Banshees, etc). This was their only album, and it's widely considered the best Polish album of all time. Though I don't know Polish, understanding the language is not necessary here. You can feel the decay of the Eastern Bloc through these tracks, most of which are pretty bleak but also energetic and occasionally anthemic; martial drumming underlies the whole album and gives it a propulsive heart.
Recommended for fans of the aforementioned bands, for fans of punk and gothic rock in general, or for those who want an eyewitness account/document (it would help if you could understand Polish, I'm sure) of the crumbling USSR's final years.
