Brokeandfamous.cz is the brainchild of the Prague taste-maker, free lance journalist and musician, Craig Montana (C.Monts, Craig Monts, Sasa Flamingo). Craig has a far reaching knowledge matched with a surpassing love for many different genres, fields and topics. Design, fashion, music and events are his forte. He tirelessly attends as many parties, eavesdrops on as many conversations and trawls through as many internet pages & magazines as possible to bring you a one-stop blog full of interesting and progressive tid-bits. Sometimes the content will be site specific (Prague, Czech Republic), sometimes not. Sometimes the content will even have Czech translations..sometimes not.

The main aim of this website is to bring as many talented individuals, groups, collectives, bands, artists and designers to your attention in the hope that one day you’ll spend your hard earned money in their direction. No pressure.

Where ever possible he will quote the origin of the information posted on the website. Occasionally he’ll get exclusive material in which case he’ll tell you so.
