Katy Carr and Poland Street :- Pawel Procajlo, Ania Gałandzij, Agnieszka Adamska and Adriel Kasonta at a moving Memorial at the Katyn Memorial in Gunnersbury cemetery on Sunday 28th April 2013 to those 22,000+ Poles who were murdered by the Soviets in 1940 on Stalin’s orders. The April 1940 killings were carried out at Katyn and other sites by the NKVD secret police on Stalin’s orders. Members of the Polish elite, including officers, politicians and artists, were shot in the back of the head and their bodies dumped in mass graves.

KC Quotes :
 
– ‘Carr is a fine example of that much-maligned beast we call Authenticity…’
– ‘Her idiosyncrasy as a musician meant she’d have to forge ahead under her own steam – even the most avowedly avant labels fight shy of butterflies they can’t easily net… ‘
– ‘She’s a true original, standing out like the spark generated by a Swan Vesta applied to a cigarette in the Blackout.’
