2) WC is punk band from Poland formed in 1981 in Miastko. They proper name is Wyidealizowana Ciemnosc but instead of that they’re using shorter version. Anyway both names are correct.
3) WC was a swedish punk band. It was formed in 1979 by guitar player Niklas Andersson and bass player Tommy Eger. After a turbulent and somewhat unserious start, the band got it’s first gig in autumn 1980 as a trio with Jörgen Bröms on drums and vocals. The group became a quartet in spring 1981, when they picked up Perry Ingman for a drummer and Jörgen moved over to guitar. With this lineup they won a rock band competition in autumn ‘82 in which the price was to record a single. The single was recorded the days before new years eve the same year in Pop Studio in Eskilstuna. A-side was “Polis, polis” (Police, police) and B-side was “Pappershjältar” (Paper heroes). The record was sold in a somewhat different way. A concert was organized where the audience, for only 20 SEK (~$2), got both the single and the concert with three bands. When Jörgen in early 1984 decided to leave his home town the band decided to play a farewell concert in Eskilstuna Folkets hus. Jörgen was replaced with Tony Andersson, previously singer in the band Kontaktlim, but shortly thereafter the band split up anyway.|The former members kept playing together in different constellations. Perry and Tony played in, among others, Pussy Galore and GASTONES (president gas), and Tommy and Jörgen (who moved back to Eskilstuna in 1986) played together, for a short while, as Alla presidentens män.|WC was reunited in 1999, with all former members except Niklas. Among other things hey played at Pipaluckbolaget’s gala in Eskilstuna, and also rerecorded 12 old WC songs. The recordings were supposed to be released on Rosa Honung Records, but they never were and WC went under once again.
