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
