Progres 2 is an art-rock band from Brno, the Czech republic. It was established in 1968, known as Progress Organization, by Zdeněk Kluka, Pavel Váně, Jan Sochor and Emanuel Sideridis. Most important album in Czech context was the project of rock opera Dialog s vesmírem (Dialog with The Universe) in 1978, only a year after transformation of the band called Bardonaj to the new band Progres 2. The public presentation of this rock opera was the first audiovisual program of rock music in Czechoslovakia, inspired by the British rock group Pink Floyd. Because this rock band played in the totalitarian state, they had a few troubles with officials. The best known problem was the one with lyrics of one song from the album Dialog s vesmírem. The song was called "Planeta Hieronyma Bosche" (The Planet of Hieronymus Bosch) where band sings about life on heroin. Censors forbade this song and band solved it out by using only vowels from lyrics. On concerts they of course played whole original lyrics.
