Because the 1980s, lyricist Michal Horácek has slowly transformed just how music is heard in the Czech Republic. Shortly following the Soviet profession of Czechoslovakia in the 1960s, Horácek produced his method through guile and pluck through a tour of america, soaking in the tradition and music of the first ’70s on the way. He came back to Czechoslovakia, learning to be a journalist (and focusing on horse racing information, contracted by Kentucky papers as the Eastern Western correspondent). Over time spent in comparative obscurity, Horácek considered his other enthusiasm, songwriting. Modeling himself to some extent on his American idols (Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen), Horácek added even more feelings and depth to his tunes than the normal Czech pop musician do. Rejection after rejection emerged as he proved helpful his way in to the music business, ultimately obtaining his break with hitmaker and composer Petr Hapka. Being a duo, the group demonstrated unstoppable, pumping out strike after strike for artists over the Czech pop range. Their music demonstrated truly not the same as the pop effluvia due to the component that Horácek supplied, adding lyrical depth towards the otherwise pretty shallow music picture.
