DG 307 is a Czech underground band, influenced by psychedelic music.

Brief history[edit]

The band was founded by the bass guitarist Milan Hlavsa and the poet Pavel Zajíček in the early '70s in Prague, Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic. Later, Hlavsa, who had played in a more renowned band, The Plastic People of the Universe, left DG 307. A few years later Zajíček was jailed for alleged disorderly conduct, which he committed by performing his music. Subsequently, he was forced to leave Czechoslovakia due to government persecution. After fleeing the country, he lived in Gothenburg, Sweden, and later New York City.

The Velvet Revolution in 1989 made it possible for Zajíček to return to his homeland. He reestablished the band and became the lead singer. Today, the band is, together with The Plastic People of the Universe and until recently also Psí vojáci, a legend of Prague underground culture still pursuing its own, inimitable style.
