from the PiKANTiK website (http://pikantik.blog.onet.pl/)


PiKANTiK was established in Cracow (Poland) in 2006 by Michał "Mike" Worgacz - guitarist, vocalist, composer and lyrics writer, ex - leader of the KRONER CiRKUS band.

In the beginning - PiKANTiK had to be only a single project, some kind of "zappa tribute idea" - created for a while ... but when musicians were engaged to this project ... they've made a decision - to be a band and to use PiKANTiK as a name of new group ...

  • Michał "Mike" WORGACZ (guitar / vocal)
  • Krzysztof "Kris" WOJCiECHOWSKi (bass guitar)
  • Rafał "Gooz" GUZiK (keyboards)
  • Filip "Phil" MOZUL (drums)

    PiKANTiK.

The band performed at the 17th edition of the Zappanale festival on 2006/07/15 in Bad Doberan, Germany.

2007 04 -> Latest News

Pikantik has a new album out. It's called "The Moofka" and it features their new drummer Grzegorz Schneider. On their two previous albums, Pikantik performed the music of Frank Zappa. For the biggest part, "The Moofka" includes original compositions. There's Zappa's 'If Only She Woulda' (recorded at Zappanale), and there's a ripping version of the Allmann brothers' 'Whipping' Post', but all the other compositions are written by Michał Worgacz or by Michał Worgacz and Krzysztof Wojciechowski.

"The Moofka" is a very guitar oriented album. This comes as no surprise, as Michał Worgacz is the writer (or the co-writer) of most of the tracks.
Progressive rock, including a couple of very fine guitar solos (excellent solos, and a great guitar-tone as well).
The first five tracks of this promotional album are in Polish, but the first two have been translated into English and make up tracks five and six. Nice touch.

I love it.
