Siekiera, a Polish post-punk band who went on to make new wave music, is a really excellent band from the early 80s that I completely missed until now! Their sole LP, Nowa Aleksandria, is jam packed with awesome tunes reminiscent of early Killing Joke. The soviet-era songs can be desolate, driving, and seem to encourage listeners to dance out their frustrations and join the musical frenzy.

You can buy a deluxe version of Nowa Aleksandria from iTunes here.
