  1. TSA

    TSA is a Polish hard rock and heavy metal band. As is the case with the vast majority of heavy metal bands with acronym-based names, there appears to have been no actual meaning behind TSA's name, although in a 2003 press release one of the founders claimed that the acronym originally meant "Tajne Stowarzyszenie Abstynentów", i.e. "“Teetotallers' Secret Association” or "Teetotallers' Anonymous." The band formed in 1979 in Opole as an initiative of guitarist Andrzej Nowak. The original line - up included also Stefan Machel, Janusz Niekrasz and Marek Kapłon. TSA at first had no singer and was an instrumental band. That fact didn't prevent the band from winning "a battle of the bands" during the 1981 Jarocin Festival. During the festival the members of the band met Marek Piekarczyk, a singer in Sektor A. He decided to join TSA as the band's vocalist, and debuted in the new role after a month, at the Pop Session festival in Sopot. TSA's song, "Zwierzenia kontestatora" is used in a musical documentary "Behind the Iron Curtain", which documents the first visit of the heavy metal band, Iron Maiden to Poland and other countries of the eastern block. The song is used as background music during the scene filmed in the music club Remont
