15042010We’re more than happy to have been invited to perform at this year’s Zappanale festival, which is held annually in the German city of Bad Doberan. The fiesta, a tribute to Frank Zappa’s heritage, has attracted over two thousand fans of “zappanasque” music each year beginning in 1990.
So maybe see you there!

Second Album / Stage One
25022010We’ve just completed Stage One of the recording process for ‘The Messiah Is Back’. It all took place at “Wrzos” - a movie theatre hall in the city of Stalowa Wola - a venue whose acoustics we’re finding more than appropriate for what we’d like to accomplish as far as the sound of the new album goes.
You can check it out right here:
The Messiah Is Back
the Second Album
21022010We’re currently in the process of recording our second album. The title of the much-anticipated follow up to the well received debut “You Name It” is going to be “The Messiah Is Back”, and it’s hardly going to be anything you might be expecting from us - of that you can be sure. Should anyone be interested in seeing a footage (a couple of them as a matter of fact) documenting the recording process, they can visit:

Bad news :(
Dear fans and friends of ZU !
With our deepest regret we have to announce that we are forced to postpone all upcoming Scandinavian aswell as Eastern European dates in February 2010 due to unforeseen circumstances. We are currently working on rescheduling all cities as soon as possible, hopefully sooner than later.
Many thanks for all your support, looking forward to come to Gdansk in near future.

Gabinet Doktora Caligari
Dziś premiera filmu "Gabinet Doktora Caligari" z 1920 roku w reżyserii Roberta Wiene'a. Ścieżka dźwiękowa: MINIMATIKON
Zapraszamy do kin studyjnych w Polsce :)
MINIMATIKON have signed a license deal with the Warsaw-based VIVARTO, the official Polish distributor of “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”. As a result, starting July 2009 the group’s music will accompany regular cinema and festival shows of the legendary classic horror movie by Robert Wien.

WOODSTOCK 2009 / ELIMINACJE
z przykrością zawiadamiamy, iż zespół Orange the Juice, nie będzie mógł wystąpić na tegorocznych eliminacjach do Przystanku Woodstock, które odbywają się 23.05.2009. Głównym powodem takiego stanu rzeczy jest silne zapalenie gardła wokalisty Konrada Zawadzkiego. Grupa tym samym nie będzie mogła zaprezentować się w pełnym składzie przed warszawską publicznością.
Jeszcze raz wszystkich zainteresowanych, organizatorów, Fabrykę Zespołów oraz Jurka Owsiaka serdecznie przepraszamy.
Do zobaczenia przy innej okazj !
Orange the Juice
25032009Orange the Juice supported by two additional musicians have composed and recorded a score for the classical horror movie "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" by director Robert Wiene.
MINIMATIKON are: Marcin A. Steczkowski - piano, trumpet, keyboards, sounds / Orange the Juice; Dawid Lewandowski - guitar, sounds / Orange the Juice; Marcin Yadach - double bass, bass guitar / Orange the Juice; Jan Kiedrzyński - drums / Orange the Juice; Piotr Cebula - violin / The Transgress; Maciej Kosztyła - saxophone, clarinet / The Transgress; Konrad Zawadzki - vocals / Orange the Juice.
The music illustration for the 1920 movie "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", commonly cited as an influence on film noir, one of the earliest horror films, and a model for directors for many decades, was created at Stalowa Wola, Poland-based MINIMATIKON studio. It was produced by Marcin A. Steczkowski, Dawid Lewandowski and Marcin Yadach.
Beware the soundtrack samples at:
“Best Breakthrough Artist of the Year” in US
07032009One of the world’s busiest web portals – the American 411mania.com – recording 15 to 20 million page hits daily included Orange the Juice’s “You Name It” among the records worth your attention in 2008. “You Name It” was mentioned in the “Best Breakthrough Artist of the Year” category.
The reviewer wrote: “An unknown Polish band that begs to be heard. Imagine a party with Frank Zappa, Napalm Death, Primus, System of a Down, and a bowl of altered punch. The music they create is INSANE! If you get to listen to them, you are going to laugh, cry, shout and headbang, all at the same time. Their debut album You Name It will surely leave you thinking ‘what the hell just happened?’"
What else ? Happy ?
Happy New Year !
We have been awarded a "Pine Branch" - the main prize in a competition held by the mayor of the city of Stalowa Wola (the band's hometown) since 1999. The ceremony took place at the Stalowa Wola Music School. Orange the Juice received the reward from the Stalowa Wola City Board Chairman Stanisław Cisek.
Thank you and goodnight !
30.11.2009The line-up has undergone a significant change. Mariusz Szmuc, the band's former bass player, has been replaced by Marcin Jadach.
Yadach is a young double-bass and bass player currently studying at the Karol Szymanowski Music Academy in Katowice, Poland. Having come from a traditional jazz background, he has recently been cooperating with the club scene or nu-jazz, alternative and rock ensembles. In Orange the Juice he will, of course, play both double bass and bass guitar.
So probably everything will be much more then fine ...

REGION ! 2007 / Hungary
09092007Well, Well, Well ...
We've just won another Polish rock music contest - rock'AUTOSTRADA in Proszowki. Tournaments like this seem to have become quite common in our country, although nobody gives a damn. The fact is we always do it for the prize money, so this one has made us a little happier and the cash will certainly come in handy. Another great news - we are going to Budapest / to perform at
REGION! 2007 / The Central Eastern European Music Conference
Feel very excited and looking forward to playing for the strange speaking people of HUNGARY. Check out the dates section for details.
And, of course: Stay Deaf!
We will perform at HUNTERFEST 2007 !!! HUGE THANKS to everyone who voted for us !
See You on July 8th, 2007 in Szczytno
20012007Well, The Young Wolves is one of those Polish music contests that do not seem to count at all.
That means they do take place, but nobody gives a damn. Before we even went to Warsaw, we had planned to reflect upon what would happen so you guys could get some feedback on what it means for a band etc. But there is nothing to tell you about. Someone just needed that thing to happen so they could tell they were doing their job. That's it. Take the press conference there was virtually no one there. Thus, the question arises whether anybody had been informed at all ? And did they (Stodola) even want anyone to come and see the shit ? So why should you care ? Or should we? We don't ... Just for the record: we are among the three awarded bands.
What else ? Stay deaf !
Final show of The Young Wolves contest.
15122006Well, after the show on December 14th , we are among the ten bands to take part in the final show of The Young Wolves contest.
We are happy and hope it is going to be as much fun.
As always: Stay Deaf !
08112006Well, we've just been accepted as one of the bands taking part in 'Mlode Wilki' (The Young Wolves) - a sort of competition for young Polish bands, aimed at helping the groups start a real career.
The winner is going to be offered a recording contract with a major label. We can't really say that we are expecting anything from the contest. We just plan to stage one hell of a show and have lots of fun - the usual boring stuff, you know. And the very opportunity to perform at Stodola (the club) in the heart of this land is itself pretty much a good deal.
Stay deaf !
You Name It
12092006Well, it looks like we're done!
What we've decided to dub "You Name It' has just been finished. Just 5 tracks but as much as 34 minutes! The first real studio recording of ours and a HUGE experience for all of us. No doubt about that. And now...well...lots of plans out there, but we shall see. Will keep you informed anyway. In the meantime, we suggest that you just let your ears check out samples of what it's going to taste like once the meal is completely ready to be served at
