Tilt was a Polish rock band, regarded as one of the first punk bands in Poland, but as the founder mentioned in an interview, this was post punk band from the beginning.[1] It was founded in Warsaw in 1979 by Tomasz Lipinski[2] and it has been existing with several breaks until now. In its first years, it performed songs in English, later switching to Polish. Currently performing and recording as Tomek Lipinski & Tilt with Lipinski on guitar and vocals, Wojciech Konikiewicz on keyboards, Karol Ludew on drums, Piotr Leniewicz on bass, and Alek Korecki on saxophone.


The name comes from the penalty message "Tilt" in pinball machines, which was displayed after excessive "nudging", and in Polish gamers' parlance "to nudge" was actually "tiltować", "to tilt". As Lipinski explained, "We wanted to act on the society in this way: to 'tilt' it."[3]
