Says Ian Stone, a Cambridge college graduate, being asked about this well known Czech performer:
Pepa Nos is one of the original figures of Czech popular music of the last few decades. Nos´ outlandish vocal style and live performances have made him a cult figure in the Czech republic. His seemingly naive lyrics (e.g. "I want to be like a bird", "The Earth is round") were resonant enough for the Czechoslovak communist secret police to inform Nos that he would no longer be allowed to make a living as a musician. Typically Nos found alternative constructive outlets for his energies ("it doesn´t mean we should have our heads in our boots"), becoming a school teacher of English and building his own house in the Wallachian highlands near the Slovak-Czech border.
