Beale Street Music Festival / interview with Przemek i Michał2015-05-05
Big stars in Europe, the Polish indie-rock quartet Myslovitz are unknown stateside outside the Polish enclave cities of New York and Chicago. Nevertheless, the band feels a connection with Memphis, where they arrived at 4 a.m. Friday morning as representatives of their homeland, the honored country of the 2015 edition of the Memphis In May International Festival.
“I think there is a big possibility if there is no Memphis, if there is no legacy of Memphis music, then we’re not here,” said band guitarist and keyboardist Przemek Myszor, before asking a lot of questions about Elvis and Jeff Buckley.
So the group was understandably nervous about its FedEx Stage opening slot Friday evening on the first day of the Beale Street Music Festival. They were tired from their flight, and there was the question of how they would be received. Honored country acts have a mixed history at Music Fest. For every act that wows the crowd, there is another that feels more like a school educational presentation than a bona fide festival act.Fortunately, Myslovitz, a band with two decades of experience that has been championed by the record label EMI and MTV Europe among others, fell into the latter group. Their sophisticated experimental modern pop was a perfect complement to the lineup of progressive bands planned for the FedEx Stage, including indie-rock pioneers the Pixies and Oklahoma psychedelic rock outfit The Flaming Lips. Songs like “Peggy Brown,” off their nearly 20-year-old sophomore record, and “The Phone,” off last year’s 10th, helped the crowd swell from a few hundred when they first took the stage to a couple of thousand by the time the stepped off, even when they lyrics were in Polish.
“I saw a lot of teeth in the front rows, a lot of people smiling,” said singer-guitarist Michał Kowalonek, whose band will play again Sunday, “The music is emotion, so it doesn’t matter what language you sing it in.”

The band from Myslowice honored by Minister of Foreign Affairs
We have been informed by the diplomatic sources that Myslovitz have been honored with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Award for outstanding contribution to promoting Poland abroad in 2004. The band is one of many prize-winners, both from Poland and abroad. Myslovitz is going to be the first pop performer to ever receive the award.
The band has been nominated by the students of Academy of Diplomacy, run by Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who wanted to honor the success of the tour with The Corrs, which took the band across the biggest venues of France, Germany and UK, as well as the last two albums: “Korova Milky Bar, released in English, and instrumental “Skalary, mieczyki, neonki”. Myslovitz’s music has been recognized as contrasting with “products of showbiz mass culture”, which distinguishes the band from “European guitar bands”.
The award of the Minister of Foreign Affairs for promoting Poland has been awarded since 1970. After the statute had been modified in 1999, the award may be granted to both individuals and institutions. Polish expats and foreigners alike are also entitled to the award. Prize-winners so far included artists working in film and theatre (Krzysztof Warlikowski, Janusz Jozefowicz, Krystian Lupa), musicians (Wojciech Kilar) and social workers (Janina Ochojska). Other prize-winners were producers of a TV show “Europa da sie lubic”, national TV channel “TV Polonia” and Dance and Song Company “Slask”.
Minister of Foreign Affairs grants also separate awards to the best Polish sportsmen, archeologists, authors of best MA theses dealing with international affairs and visual artists for the best Polish posters.
This year’s awards for promoting Poland abroad will be handed in autumn at the seat of Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
