Hátsó Szándék


Hátsó Szándék was a Hungarian punk band between 1997-2004 and propably one of the most approved and influential ones in the scene. The members came from both Pavlov Kutyái and Pincebogarak, later some initial changes (Péter Pacsay guitarist and Ádám Várkonyi lead singer leaving, while a new lead singer joining the band - all in 1998) shaped the final lineup: Márton Andor (bass), Gábor Kobera (guitar), Tamás Kuttner (drums), Gergely Nagy (vocals).

Hátsó Szándék was a Hungarian punk band between 1997-2004 and propably one of the most approved and influential ones in the scene.

Two songs about skinheads (to be expressed later) earned the band a huge fanbase in the flourishing streetpunk community, while their unique, hardcore based music and a then unmatched quality of their lyrics turned the opinion leaders of the hardcore scene on their side too. After helping in the creation of a Budapest-based melodic hardcore scene, they broke up due to musical differences. They agreed to do a final show, which became sort of a 'legendary' event. There was a plan of making a live DVD, but the video recordings of the show have gone missing and are yet to be found. Their music is a bit mixed up, including early hardcore and '80s melodic punk basics with high pitched vocals while having the bass lead the melody (a retraceable habit of Hungarian punk bands).

Later on time guitar themes evolved and took the lead role, while the music slowed down and let more place to melodies, resulting in a more emotional and atmospheric sound. It was a totally unique sound, a single and short approach on post-hardcore from the viewpoint of Hungarian punk traditions. The main lyrical inspiration is alienation. Dark lyrical themes dealing with space/time/soul system are occuring often (eg dreams, pictures, doppelgangers) with a strong sense of loneliness and hopelessness in an opressive urban, industrial environment. There is a perceivable trend of getting more dark and serious as time went on.

Also the two 'skin' songs have to be mentioned here, of which the first (Együtt Az utcán on Nincs Üzenet) is a both musically and lyrically immature approach on SHARP skinheads. The song caused a huge controversy, letting some blame the band as neonazis. As to clear the controversy, the second song (Skinhead Reggae on Álmatlanság) is a much more clear one about the once antiracist skinhead movement, even having some Hátsó Szándék atmospheric specialtes. Neither of the songs deserved the attention their got compared to other Hátsó Szándék songs. Discography: Nincs Üzenet (1999), Álmatlanság (2000), Öt Percünk Maradt (2002).

Also the material of a 1998 demo tape and a some recordings of their last show can be found here and there. Members later played in Red Line Offside, Something Against You, Bridge to Solace.
