Stanley The Satanist

I've just returned from a long weekend in Bratislava. Apart from a handful of Slovak singles from the 1960s and 1970s, it was fairly slim pickings in terms of recorded music. But we did spend a most enjoyable evening sharing musical moments with Stanley, the manager of the Tempus Art Cafe.

Stanley is a self-professed Satanist, and undoubtedly the nicest Satanist I have met to date. I don't think it is normal in those circles to lay on cheese scones as bar snacks, for example, but Stanley does. He has rigged up a screen on which to display YouTube videos of his (or your) choice.

While probably inevitably he is a bit of a metalhead, his tastes are varied, taking in Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong and the theme from "Zorba the Greek". As well as Hungarian rock gods Omega and Czech nutter Ivan Mladek, who provide today's music and video clips respectively.

 "Gyöngyhajú Lány" - Omega

"Olyan Szépen Mosolygott" - Omega


  1. Ivan and his pal is like Czech children's telly gone wrong

  2. Omega - "I prefer their early work"

  3. Love it. Trusting he's not peddling any un-PC sentiments (a quick web check suggests he's pukka)Bonzo Dog Doodah Bandesque. I may nick this for a Twitter post of my own. Great post
