In the hairiest community in Czechoslovakia
Jaroslav Klíč was born on the 26th of March in 1959 in Šumperk but he grew up in Libina. Since his youth, he was involved in the underground culture. He was one of the notable personalities in the legendary Čtverka pub in Uničov which, during the normalisation, had become a local centre of the other culture. He retyped samizdats using carbon paper and bank paper and then he spread them. He played the saxophone in the Brix Bar Band. They were different from the other undergrounds bands – they used sheet music. They performed exclusively at underground events, mainly in the then North Moravian district. Jaroslav Klíč worked in Šumperk and later in Oskava as a serviceman of weaving machines. After the Revolution, he remained one of the few in the culutural underground. He still plays the saxophone in a band with the tradition stretching back to the Brix Bar Band, now renamed Sibérija [~damn cold]. With this band, he got an award at the Malá Alternativa [Small Alternative] festival in 2010. In 2019, he was living in Šumperk with his wife Eva.
