Today the whole of Jammy Toast has gone into mourning after our friend Tim broke the news that Ivo Pešák has died. Ivo was a Czech singer, dancer, and comic performer. He is perhaps best known for his work with Ivan Mládek’s Banjo Band, and particularly for his high-spirited performance in the viral video phenomenon, featured on Jammy Toast yesterday, Jožin Z Bažin. Ivo was born at Jaroměř, then in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. He was a member of the rock ‘n’ roll revival band known as the Rockec Ivo Pesaka. He died in Prague from complications following a heart bypass surgery in 2011, he was 66. In Ivo’s later years, he was in a duo named Dýza Boys.

As many of you will know, Edward has been trawling through the Jammy Toast archives for posts to include on our other site; Classic Toast. Yesterday he discovered some posts from 2008 featuring an old friend of ours Jožin Z Bažin. Now Jožin is the creation of another old friend of ours Ivan Mládek. So for the purposes of those of you who have never head of Jožin or Ivan let me explain. Ivan Mládek is from Prague and in 1966 he formed his first – now famous – Banjo Band. In the 1970s Ivan and his Band had become famous in Czechoslovakia. By the mid-1980s, Ivan was the star of many Czechoslovakian television shows.

After featuring the Bog Monster Song the other day and not knowing much about who the band were, we decided to see what we could find out. Erasmus didn’t sleep the night we found out about the Monster and then when Laura told him on her driving lesson that there was a Bog Monster in Bromborough… well that was it, he was hiding under the bed that night!
