CPG

“One of the most important hungarian punk bands, CPG, was formed around 1979. Their shows and openly anti-communist lyrics got the attention of the authorities very early on. Eventually they were put on trial in 1983. All four members were found guilty of political agitation and were deemed enemies of the communist state, sentenced to a 1.5-2 year prison term. During the communist era they recorded a demo and there are a few live sets floating around which saw the light of day as re-releases in 1993 2000 and 2006 respectively”
