Orlík was a folk-influenced Czech oi! punk band founded in 1988 from the existing hardcore punk band F.A.S. (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome) by Daniel Landa and David Matásek. The band was named after the Orlík winery, where the band members met. Orlík had a short career, releasing only two albums, 1990's Oi! and 1991's Demise. The band has been criticized for its racial overtones, targeting specifically the gypsy minority in Czechoslovakia. They denied these accusations and claimed that their music was misunderstood. After the band broke up, frontman Daniel Landa went on to have a successful solo career and remains musically active to this day. David Matásek pursued an acting career.
