Biography

Biography
The Complainer and The Complainers (aka TC&TCS) is the global-reaching indie pop project of Wojciech Kucharczyk, who started the festivities in 2005 as a solo follow-up to his successful stint (1994-2008) as czar of legendary Polish indie label mik.musik.!. Evolving into a full-force band by 2007, TC&TCS consists of a shuffling lineup of a mostly youthful cast of characters, each with a set of special skills (both musical and non-musical), along with some international guests and friends from previous projects. The overall effect is like a superhero cartoon show with each member bringing his or her special talents to form a creative juggernaut. TC&TCS shows are all-out energetic affairs, combining acoustic and electronic, common and exotic instrumentation to create a sometimes quirky, sometimes muscular, and strangely catchy amalgamation of sounds, stories, visuals, and motion.

Before becoming the chief Complainer, Wojciech was involved in other successful and interesting projects and bands since the late 1980s- Molr Drammaz, retro*sex*galaxy, Go Underground To See More Animals, TerriTerrorTorium (duo with Felix Kubin), Pathman, HWDJazz to name a few.

TC&TCS albums are available worldwide through iTunes, Amazon, and also from various smaller, independent resellers. The group has also released special MP3-only special recordings.

Touring History
The Complainer (with and without The Complainers) has participated in international festivals such as: I.D.E.A.L/Nantes, Progress/Ljublijana, Nuits Sonores/Lyon, Garage/Stralsund, Eurocultured/Manchester, Off Festival/Myslowice, New! New!/Brno, Pulse/London, Skif/St. Petersburg, C.sides/Tel Aviv, Transvizualia/Gdynia, Unsound/Krakow, Ars Cameralis/Katowice, Nowa Muzyka/Cieszyn and many gigs in nice places such as Berlin, Hamburg, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Den Haag, Wien, Bratislava, Minsk or Moscow and numerous smaller ones. In 2009 alone, more than 50 concerts were on the itinerary.

Melting Man

Written By: Wojciech Kucharczyk

I wanna be your sweat
I wanna be your sweat

You are so solid girl
You are so solid girl
And I’m a melting man
And I’m a melting man
And I’m a melting man

In your eyes I’m a cube of ice
In your eyes I’m a cube of ice
In the clouds I’m a splash

I wanna be your sweat
I wanna be your sweat
It doesn't matter

In your rainforest
Snowflake
In your rainforest
Showflake
I wanna be your sweat
I wanna be your sweat

My liquidness is my weakness
Your weakness is my liquidness
Warm ocean waiting
Warm ocean waiting

You are so solid girl
You are so
You are so solid girl
You are so
I wanna be your sweat
I wanna be your sweat
And I'm a melting man
You are so solid girl
You are so solid girl
You are so solid girl

Jelly Bean

Written By: Wojciech Kucharczyk

Experiment is the word I hate
In so manymanymanymany
... many interviews I was telling about
That
I never did experiments
I always know what I wanna get
I never did experiments
I always know what I wanna get

I
New story - why not
I was sleeping with this idea
For a longlonglonglong...
So long time
So lone

But
You know
Media throw me
To such fucking bag
To such ugly box
So now
It's time and it sounds good to me
That we must tell to them
That we must tell to them
We must finally explain to them
That we are right - not you!
We are right! Not you!
Not you! Not at all! We are right!

Because

I never did experiments!
I always know what I wanna get!
I never did experiments!
I always know what I wanna get!

To start a story - why not
I was sleeping with this idea
For for for a long time, so long

We are right! Not you!
We are right! Not you!
We are right! Not you!
We are right! Not you!
We are right! Not you!
And now I'm waiting
For your ideas!

Pasja i Uraz

Written By: Joanna Bronislawska

Light on the roof
As bright as can
Blow up all tests!
I need a rest!
 
Slide down the top
I have enough
I'm hero now
But not a star.

Social Problems

Written By: Wojciech Kucharczyk

My inner giant tells me
My spooky dentist tells me
Every day
Sun rises
Every day
Sun kisses
Me endlessly
Me and deeply

Confirm social problems
Health insurance
Taxy faxy
Every day
Sun poses
Every day
Sun doses
Me happily
Me and after

Tell your inner giant
To stay completely and free
Tell your spooky dentist
To repair
A hole
In a soul!

Colossal and massive
And
Very very big

Hyper great
And handsome
Whole lotta happy
Like me me me
Spacy not abrasive
And
Very very nice
Much talented explosion
Breaking every ice ice ice

Metka

Written By: Joanna Bronislawska

This bag is not a toy
Keep away from fire
Turn outside before wash
Don’t be a liar

This bag is not a toy
Wash with similar colours
No ironing no! no! no!
Don’t be a liar

No bleach.
No iron.
No dry clean.
No tumble.

This bag is not a toy
Wash with similar colours
No ironing no! no! no!

Whatever

Written By: Pawel Trzcinski

Chorus:
Whatever you want me to do
I will do
Wherever you want me to be
I will be there
Whatever stands between us
Is not true
We'll never be apart again

For all our troubles and dirty deeds
I stand by you and you stand by me
You stand by your man
Because you are the same
We are like twins
It's all part of the game

Chorus

We've got nothing to lose
And nothing to gain
On the top of the mountain
At the end of the day

Chorus

(Bridge)
You are me and I am you
Just like it's written on our tatoos
There is no silence and no taboo
Remember Jack and Meg honey?
We break all the rules!

Chorus

Whatever you want...
Wherever you want...

Supercream

Written By: Wojciech Kucharczyk

Down the pillow
Tears run flow
Forever
Forever

Sometimes wet
Sometimes dry
Salty flowers
Souly spots

My stone builds the castle
My tree founds the bridge
On a salty desert

All the people come here
Don't cry - just dream
Even if you scream of sorrow
Your tears are
Supercream!
