The biggest comeback of the decade - that's what the 2007 album Ančių dainos (The Songs of Ducks) was for thousands of Lithuanian rock fans. Formed in 1984, Antis soon became known for their provocative lyrics, double entendres that attacked communism and theatrical live performances (in those days of communist regime, for a male singer to use make-up was a statement in itself). The band called it a day in 1990 - from then on, lead singer Algirdas Kaušpėdas devoted his time and energy to becoming a respected architect and businessman. In 2003 the band got together again for several performances and enjoyed it immensely, although the reunion was considered a one-off. However, in 2007 Antis unleashed a powerful collection of new songs. And in 2009 they brought another surprise – a lavish, full-on visual and musical extravaganza Zuikis Pleibojus (The Playboy Rabbit), a colourful musical featuring only the new material, performed by the band members themselves (not mentioning artful and elaborate publicity tricks, including a giant statue of golden rabbit erected in one of Lithuanian capital's central locations). The songs were released on CD and LP and the show itself did well both in theatres and Lithuania's biggest rock festival Be2gether. The sound is vintage Antis but subject of the lyrics has changed – these guys now mock the behaviour of upper-class yet readily admit that these songs could be written about themselves. In 2011, the band is still going strong – with hints of yet another album coming our way.
