Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” Played with Medieval Instruments, and Kickstart More Medieval Covers

Last year, we introduced you to Stary Olsa, a band from Eastern Europe (Belarus, to be precise) who has a knack for reworking famous rock songs in a Medieval Belarusian folk style. Our original post featured adaptations of classic songs by The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and Deep Purple. Above you can watch Stary Olsa play “Another Brick in the Wall” by Pink Floyd on the Belarusian TV-show “Legends Live.” Part of the reason we’re featuring the band again is because Stary Olsa has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of its 12th album, Old Time Rock n Roll, which will bring more metal music back to the Middle Ages. You can watch the video for the campaign below, and make your contribution, however big or small, here. They’ll super appreciate any support you can offer. Enjoy.

    отлично! I do not know how I missed the first time they appeared here. I laughed at the idea of it and then considered Floyd going back 500 years before I listened to it. Fantastic. Imagine them outside the castle of a lord singing, “We don’t need no thought control,” and then see the drawbridge coming down so that the best knight may emerge to begin the slaughter, with thoughts emerging:

    Now the world is gone,
    I’m just one
    Oh God, help me
