Flamengo live in 2015. Picture by: Karel Fořt

Flamengo was one of the earliest Czech progressive rock groups. It was established in 1966.[1][2]

The band's original line-up consisted of: Přemysl Černý - drums, František Francl - lead guitar, Pavel Fořt - rhythm guitar, Eduard Vršek - keyboard, Jiří Čížek - bass, Petr Novák - vocals. Vocalist Joan Duggan from Newcastle joined the group in 1969, but left with Francl after the two were married (they would later join Jazz Q). The line-up continued to change before settling after the arrival of vocalist Vladimír Mišík, saxophonist and flautist Jan Kubík and bassist Vladimír "Guma" Kulhánek, who joined Ivan Khunt and Pavel Fořt. In 1971, this line-up recorded one of the most beloved Czech rock albums, "Kuře v hodinkách".[3] Poet Josef Kainar wrote the lyrics for the album. The record was quickly banned by the communist regime under normalization. It became legendary, and is now considered one of the best albums coming out of the Czech rock music scene.[4] In 2013, they were the nominated band for Beatová síň slávy., a list of people and bands who have made significant contributions to Czech rock music.[5]
