Profile
Už Jsme Doma is a progressive rock band from Prague, Czech Republic, who originally formed in the Czech border town Teplice in 1985. Until the Velvet Revolution in the Czech Republic (then Czechoslovakia) in 1990, the band was considered 'illegal' by the communist state and was forced to hold secret concerts and risk arrest if caught. Despite this history, the band eschews straightforward political commentary within their lyrics and art in favor of poetic and artistic symbolism. Už Jsme Doma was founded by saxophonists Jindra Dolanský and Milan Nový, drummer Jula Horváth, keyboardist Jiří Závodný, bassist Petr Keřka, and guitarists Ota Chlupsa and Jiří Solar. They played their first of many illegal concerts on a riverboat on July 6, 1985, with Czech punk bands FPB (Fourth Price Band, which featured Nový on drums and several important future members of Už Jsme Doma) and Plexis. By 1986, singer Miroslav Wanek and guitarist Romek Hanzlík, both from FPB, had joined, initially simply as guest members.
