One does not have to follow suit
Stanilav Vlč was born May 15, 1960 in Přerov but had lived in Vrchoslavice in the Příbram district up until 1990. He became interested in the hippies movement and rock music at his junior high in Němčice nad Hanou and joined the community of young people nicknamed ‘máničky’, ‘androši’ or ‘vlasáči’ [all names for young people with long hair] who had a very distinctive clothing style and were characterized by a free spirit. In the 1980s he organized several secret but well attended underground festivals together with his friends. He also played in the bands Arstenben and Pod hladinou and drove around music events all over Moravia. He experienced several police interventions at that time. He remembers the raging members of National Security Corps in the restaurant Na Střelnici in Brno in June 1983, who used tear gas to disperse several hundred young people and arrested tens of them on the spot. Then in December 1984 they arrested and later sentenced his friend and band member Roman Matula to ten months in prison after a raid at the restaurant Na Lapačce in Šenov. He has continued to organize underground events and gatherings with friends even after the fall of Communism. In 2018 he lived in Uničov with his wife Věra.
