Artist Info

Rodion G.A.

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Rodion G.A. was founded in 1975 by Rodion Ladislau Roșca, Gicu Fărcaș and Adrian Căpraru (the initials G and A standing for Gicu and Adrian), in Cluj, Romania. The band combined post-punk’s aural assault, the melodic and motorik sensibilities of Kosmische, heavy classic rock riffing with prog’s lead line explorations, and spaced-out psychedelic sounds to create a captivating and rapturous sonic brew. This unique blend also throws in traditional Romanian folk elements and Mid Eastern modes and rhythms.

Although everything they recorded for radio sessions went to number one in Romania only two tracks were ever released, on the 1981 compilation album "Formații Rock vol. 5" by the state record company Electerecord. They continued to play live even during the Ceaușescu regime's heavy censorship during the 70s and 80s. After the group disbanded in 1987, Rodion Roșca quit musical life and avoided any public appearence.

In 2008, after three decades of history, the indie label Roadrunner Music bought the copyrights, remixed old tapes and brought Rodion and Gicu in the Next Dog and Sysound studios to record new versions of their old hits. The double LP Rodion G.A. 1978-1983, 2008 - was planned for 2009. In 2013 the compilation The Lost Tapes was released.
