Agressiva 69 Live At Wrocław Industrial Festival 2020



The XIX edition of Wroclaw Industrial Festival took place from the 6th to 8th of November in 2020. In these tough pandemic times, the organizers rose to the occasion and organized this festival really well. The performances of the artists were streaming live on the internet from the concert hall, where the bands were playing without a crowd. If you want to find out more about the festival, please visit this website.

In addition to the whole galaxy of bands, we have been very pleasantly surprised by the concert of Agressiva 69, which played at the entrance a great live version of the track Misery and the latest track called "Dlaczego nie ty...", which has not yet been officially released.

What are the organizers of the festival writing about Agressiva 69?

Agressiva 69 appears at WIF at a special moment. The band slowly turns to celebrate 30 years of existence jubilee. The band's history began in decisive times of the 80s and 90s. The founders of A69 are Tomek Grochola and Jacek Tokarczyk,  later accompanied by Robert Tuta (i.a. Warthegau, 1984). The new drummer is Filip Mozul. Agressiva 69 represents the full of energy, rock or even rock’n’roll attitude towards industrial music. The attitude is similar to the one represented by KMFDM, Young Gods, Ministry or Revolting Cocks. Agressiva 69's actions intertwine with the pioneer times of the scene and show business in post-communist Poland. The band's changing fortunes can in no way be described constructively, however, it is worth to mention the role Agressiva has played for the popularization of industrial among communities who are far away from experimental music. Further history of A69 is highs and lows. Triumphant concerts, unusual activity, next projects and moments which the band has fortunately overcome. A69's work evolved into different directions. A group of friends has always presented themselves as a super band live. They were a cult band among Depeche Mode fans in Poland, although their musical style is very distant from the sounds made by the golden boys from Basildon. A69's orthodox fans value their breakthrough albums Deus Ex Machina (1993) and Hammered By The Gods (1994) the most. The repertoire of the first, memorable record is going to be the base of their concert in Wroclaw.
