Pete Fijalkowski is an English vocalist, guitarist and songwriter formerly with the British alternative bands Adorable and Polak,[1] and currently plays with Terry Bickers of the House of Love in the duo Pete Fij / Terry Bickers. Polak also featured his brother, Krzyz Fijalkowski, formerly of The Bardots.

He has used variants of his name in all the different projects he has worked on - using the Polish Piotr Fijalkowski in Adorable, the anglicised Pete Fijalkowski in Polak, and the shortened Pete Fij for his work with Terry Bickers.

A film studies graduate at Warwick University,[2] Fijalkowski is the director of the 'On Location Film Festival' in Worthing, which shows films in site-specific locations relevant to the film.[3] He is also the director of Pete Fij / Terry Bickers' videos for "Out of Time",[4] "Downsizing"[5] and "Betty Ford".[6]

After a Kickstarter in late 2013[7] Fij and Terry Bickers released their debut album Broken Heart Surgery in July 2014.[8]
