Majerovy brzdove tabulky ( Majer's Brake Tables )
active from year 1985

Excellent alternative band playing something between folk and guitar pop, much more special and colorful than other bands within the genre, with much better lyrics, thus less commercially successful. Characteristic sound of saxes and existencial lyrics inspired by Oldrich Janota and his band Mozart K. New electronical instruments used on album 5. but the original sound of the band remained unchanged. However, the singer Andrea Landovska left in 2005; the repertoir gets adjusted to male singer duo Kahle-Linhart who do not always sing in tune, and suddenly the fragile magic of MBT sound is gone. The situation has not changed after arrival of the new skilled woman singer Alice Holubova (-> Hradistan). Kahle & Linhart still try to sing which means retreat from the position of one of the best and most original Czech folk-rock bands ever.
