RLO is an alternative-music band gaining popularity in Poland during last few years. They were invited to the biggest festival in Europe – Woodstock Festival by its founder – Jurek Owsiak, to play for thousands of cheering fans. The band is known for its unique lyrics in Polish, and colourful concert versions of their songs. RLO duo is Damian Lange and Adam Miller, though they play concerts with 2 additional musicians. They released 2 LPs with a popular alternative record label – S.P.Records, and played over 100 gigs across the country.
TSD is a rock band celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Damian Lange is a founder of the band, and also the author of all lyrics. Sławek Pietrzak (head of S.P. Records music label) said, ‘As far as lyrics are concerned, Damian Lange could share the title of best Polish songwriters with Kazik (Kult), Grabaż (Strachy Na Lachy, Pidżama Porno) and Kasia Nosowska (Hey).’ Music of Transsexdisco is influenced by metal, punk, electro and pop. They released 3 LPs with S.P.Records, and played over 300 gigs across the country.

Messenger Sound System, the original roots advertiser, consistently programmes the heights of conscious reggae music, dub-wise and otherwise! Crazy to think now that it first started in Edinburgh back in 1987 and that it’s been keeping the fires burning, every month, at the Bongo for two thirds of that time. That’s 30, THIRTY, years at the heart of Edinburgh’s reggae scene, and 20 years here at the Bongo! Upstairs: ‘Sound System Legacies’ will explore the legacy of dub / reggae / roots music and sound system culture on more contemporary club / dance music styles such as grime, dubstep, jungle, d n b, garage etc, featuring various guest DJs… Look out for some of the mighty Messenger Sound System in here as well!
