Propaganda Sung Here
Lyrics and a bit of background about "Gracie Lou."
Robi Polgar (that would be me) has been strumming guitars and writing songs for, god, wait for it: decades. He's performed in pubs, clubs, on the street, under the street (down in the tube station at midnight, shall we say?) and, in recent years, all around Austin, where he makes his home.
When not performing solo, he can be heard fronting his Brit-Pop outfit The Late Joys or in the acoustic duet The Study Session (site still under construction...).
Robi's musical stylings owe a lot to a relatively obscure yet overworked quartet from the northwest of England who performed eight days a week, as well as more recent musical heroes, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller, Squeeze, Pretenders and a bevvy of political agitators (The Clash, X, Billy Bragg, Phil Ochs) who used guitars instead of machine guns to make their case for social justice, liberty, equality and, yes, he dares utter it, love.
What's on Robi's Site?
Hullo, and welcome to Robi's website, where you'll find music, musings and more -- and/or links to all that nifty stuff. Interested in seeing a live performance? To the left is the list of upcoming gigs. Or read the details about the open mic hosted by Mr. P in sunny south Austin (below). And please sign up on the mailing list. Who knows; you might receive a nice little e-post in the not-too-distant future.
Robi Performs Friday Happy Hours at the Butterfly Bar
Join me (almost) every Friday from 6pm for the outstanding Butterfly Bar Happy Hour where I get to strum and warble with The Late Joys and, occasionally, The Study Session.
