Orlík was a Czech oi! band founded in 1988 by Daniel Landa and David Matásek with slogan "nic než národ, Čechy Čechům" (Nothing but nation, Bohemia for Czechs).Read More...
They recorded two albums before their split-up in 1993. Orlík is considered to be the main reason for the rise of a WP skinhead movement after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Though the skinhead movment for the two was shortlived, and soon faded as the two boys grew older and lost their social angst and misdirected aggressive opinions.
David Matásek is well-known and respected Czech actor, artist, director, producer, and film advisor to present. Daniel Landa still remains in the Top of the charts in Czech Republic as well as across Europe for not just his musical triumps but much much more.
Daniel Landa (born November 4, 1968, Prague) is a Czech musician, actor and racer.
Landa began his musical career in 1987 when he along with David Matásek founded the oi! band Orlík. He graduated from the Prague Conservatory in the area of Music and Drama. After the break up of the band in 1992 he began his solo career. Daniel lives with his wife Mirjam Müller since 1990. They have a daughter Anastázie and twin daughters Roxana and Rozálie. He used to be interested in autocross, now he's interested in rallying. In 2003, collaborating with Roman Kresta, he founded the Malina foundation, which promotes safe driving.
Landa and Matásek were labeled controversial by Orliks critics in the first years of their career. The first two albums revolved around skinheads and the song Bílá liga (White League) was obviously racist, particularly against the Romani and not focused on other commonly attacked minority groups.
Landa claims to have grown out of his racially biased debuts, and nowadays pronounces himself a patriot, although his critics call his opinions excessively nationalist. His initiative from 2005, an order "Ordo Lumen Templi", was compared to the proto-Nazist "Ordo Novi Templi" in media.
On 31 January 2008 Czech prime minister Mirek Topolánek cited his verse Dyť i to největší hovado má svůj strop! (Even the biggest idiot has his limit) from the song Forbes in the concept album Smrtihlav (1998).
