Biplan guitarist Oleg Aleksejev, on the band's Facebook account, sensitively introduced how strongly this building was related to the band's history when the Trade Union House began to be destroyed: "We played the first Biplan concert 24 years ago on October 1. Since then, the group has been counting years of existence. Then we played at least a dozen concerts in this building. "
It was not only Biplan's first concert that took place in the guild room. The band has two practice studios that produce one of Biplan's most famous songs to date, including "Good Morning" and "Thursday" and the band's legendary album "Strawberries".
Biplane | From zero to month (happy version):
Strawberry Biplanes began a period of extraordinary success and recognition. Released in 1998, this album became Bravo's Best Album of the Year and Best Rock Band and Radiocentro of the Year.
However, the biplane which has become one of Lithuania's most popular groups, despite the extraordinary history of the Biplane and Trade Union House, and the wonderful creative time spent there, is hardly forgotten due to the destruction of buildings.

"By the way, soon this building will only be left in photos, videos and all of us. How sad about that? Actually not really. Except now that there will never really be a sign on this building with the words: "Biplants live and are made in this house," joked Oleg.
The origin of the Biplan in the 1990s was also reminded by a group visit to the MO Museum exhibition dedicated to the last decade of the last century – The Origin of Species. DNA of the 90s. "

Coming to the event was the 1998 Biplan song "Good Morning", directed by Donatas Ulvydas, and the biplane "DNA 90s" and other timestamps – the name of the band on the cover of Ausis music magazines or strawberry album tapes here in a collection of cartridges recovered from the 1990s in a section that is easily recognizable to all.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of the band's most important albums, Strawberry, last year, Biplan held a special concert tour and released this recording on cassette. After the exhibition at the MO Museum, Strawberry phonograph records are also sold in the museum shop.

Biplan will release its third phonograph record later this year, after the most prominent albums previously released in this format – All Roads Lead to the Sea (2015) and Strawberries (2018). This year's Biplan album "Zero to the Moon" will be released in vinyl format.
The latest song will include several bonus songs, including a new version of the song title. The composition, which is arranged by Andrius Kauklys and Marius Narbutis, Happyendless members, is distinguished by a faster and more positive voice, and thus is called "From the Moon to the Moon (Happy Version)". Starting October 18, this song is now available on all digital music platforms.
