The new Načeva LP Zdivočelí koně (Wild Horses) sets to music texts written by Czech poets persecuted under the communist regime: Pavel Zajíček, Ivan Martin Jirous (AKA Magor, or Madman), Vladimíra Čerepková, Václav Hrabě, Věra Jirousová and Šárka Smazalová. On the outstanding record, Monika Načeva, who has been well-known as a singer and actress over two and a half decades, is joined by keyboardist David Kabzan (who was himself a dissident while still a teenager) from the group Rány těla and the actress and drummer Markéta Pták of LO/VE.
