about

Formerly the main songwriter and a founding member of late '90s teen punk tearaways Symposium, Wojtek Godzisz was coaxed out of self-imposed exile to sign to Tigertrap Records in 2006. Less punky, more heartachingly infectious, his new material is a triumphant step forward. This, his debut solo album, was released in 2009.

"An astute alchemist. A hint of early Queen, a pinch of Arcade Fire...sweeping elegance. 'Wojtek Godzisz' casts an absorbing spell." - Clash (Album Review)
 
"One listen to the eerie 'The Wild Earth' will have you feeling like you're on Dartmoor at dusk. The name Wojtek Godzisz will soon be mispronounced by fans all over the country." - Gobshout (Album Review)
 
"An impressively off-kilter haze of dense psychedlia, folk-tinged melodies and a genre-bending sense of adventure. A record packed to the rafters with surprises...gloriously OTT pantomime rock. This is an undeniably trailblazing record that by all rights should cement him as one of the essential voices of 2010." - Rock Midgets 4/5 (Album Review)
 
"An audacious, all-conqueringly awesome affair." - Rocksound 9/10 (Album Review)
 
"This gypsy-inflicted man oozes obvious talent. Like a pissed Kevin Rowland trying to get a rise out of Depeche Mode while Sparks supervise the middle eight. Belting stuff." - Artrocker (Album Review)
 
"A richly melodic album of elemental folk-prog that embraces hints of pagan mysticism and surprising contemporary influences." - Yorkshire Evening Post (Album of the Year)
 
"Hymnal, paganistic alt.folk...a complete and satisfying package...a beautifully articulate composer and arranger...summons visions of a man gazing in rapture at a starlit sky...lord only knows what this fellow will be capable of if he continues to shun the razor." - R2 Magazine (Album Review)
 
"Really rather good." - Vice 8/10 (Album Review)
 
"Undeniably unique...this is the sound of a man striving to break new ground." - Kerrang! (Album Review)
 
"Folkish, Arcade Fire-edged rock." - Time Out
 
"Considered indie with folksy trimmings...retaining his capability to rock when the mood takes him." - Uncut (Album Review)
