Bez ladu a skladu (also known as BLAS) is a cult post-punk band from Trenčín (Slovakia), founded in 1985 and lead by singer Michal Kaščák, who was 13 years old at the time. They were able to release an album only in 1990, because in the Eighties the most experimental forms of rock music were banned all across Czechoslovakia.
From 1985 to 1989 the band was forced to the underground, playing some gigs (mainly in jazz festivals, which were less monitored by the Soviet authorities) and recording some songs and videos, without having the chance to distribute them.
After the 1989 Velvet Revolution, rock music was liberalized and the band finally realized a full album with a professional equipment. The result was this exciting debut effort, recorded in 1989 and released one year later: fourteen songs and fragments where post-punk meets funk and jazz, distorted guitars collide against a powerful saxophone, and every kind of dissonance, crazy evolution or funny sound is involved. 
Kaščák was still only 17 at the time of these sessions but his mix of declamations and histrionic singing is really impressive.
