years active: 1976 - 1982
band of the drummer Vlastimil Marek who, after a couple of controversial participation in several alternative rock bands (Extempore, Elektrobus, Stehlík, Švehlík) fell for eastern philosophies and music. The first line-up is formed mostly by ex members of Svehlik. After their parting with Marek, Jiri Mazanek comes (1978) with whom Amalgam shifts to calmer meditative music (from later point of view possibly labeled as New Age). In 1980 Mazanek and Marek split and Mazanek forms similarly oriented Relaxace. Marek leaves to Japan for some time; after his return, he has a couple of concerts in different line-ups with Mazanek, Valenta, E.Pospisil a.o.; gradually, Mazanek stifles activities of Amalgam and performs solo in his next (unfrequent) concerts, with occasional support of guests (E.Pospisil).
