ŠKODA 120 - Olovo Vsem

Info

The finale is almost here. The band that fucking kicked ass of quite a few grind or hardcore fans in the last few years. ŠKODA 120 on the rise! The last album of theirs called Samorost is a quality hardcore/grind mosh and the live show of these veterans of the local scene is fucking straightforward too.


For sure one of the biggest surprises of the last few years. It is a damn great result after almost 20 years of existence! ŠKODA will play at Obscene Extreme for the first time again after 10 years!!!

I did not expect to land on the Obscene Extreme site after a search for spare parts & service for the Jikov carburettors on my V8 Skoda. Although interesting & entertaining, from a technical point of view I found the article on this page absolutely useless. I suppose I will have to drive the damn thing to Trutnov in 2016 in order to gain the necessary understanding of this mechanism. There I will learn everything I need to know first hand, from experts. To Hell with the internet!
