DESMOD, one of Slovakia’s most popular rock groups, recently gave an unusual gig – unusual not only for their fans, but also for the group itself.

In early February, in front of a small audience at a stage in the Tower 115 building in Bratislava, they performed hits and songs from their recent new album in an acoustic - or unplugged - version.
Desmod, especially their front man Mário “Kuly” Kollár showed they were in a good shape. Apart from their older pieces, such as Zhorí všetko, čo mám (All I have will burn) or …na tebe závislý (...addicted to you), which are still heard regularly on Slovak radio stations, they perfomed unplugged versions of lesser known songs from their latest album Kyvadlo (Pendulum).

After huge applause from the small audience they finished with the popular Zober ma domov (Take me home).

Desmod was born in 1996 as a metal group, but over the years, with some change in its membership, its style has changed to today's pop rock. Their unplugged performance was part of the Radio Expres series of unplugged concerts by Slovak musicians, to which tickets are not sold but only offered to listeners in competitions.
