Jurij, Hungary's one and only SOCROCK band, was formed in Nyiregyhaza, in February 2001. After playing high school gigs, they gained more and more attention in the region. They were hardly 6 months old, when getting the chance to play at Hungary's second largest festival in Tokaj. They published their first tape-album, Szocrock, right before the festival. Receiving invitations from venues outside Nyiregyhaza, they could visit and play in cities like Budapest, Békéscsaba or Gyula. The schedule of next year was quite similar.
