DUBROVAČKI TRUBADURI was a Croatian beat, folk and pop band from Dubrovnik formed in 1961 by Đelo Jusić, main composer, guitar and mandolin player and leader of the group. They were very popular in former Yugoslavia during the 60s and 70s for their mixture of pop music and medieval folk traditions of their native ancient city on the Adriatic coast. Internationally also known as Dubrovnic Troubadours or The Troubadours Of Dubrovnik, they enjoyed brief popularity across Western Europe having appeared at the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest in London. Their song "Jedan dan" was performed by their singers Luciano Kapurso and Hamo Hajdarhodžić and it scored 7th position. The group, in different line-ups, existed until the early 80s when they broke up. (from wikipedia)

PRLJAVO KAZALIŠTE was formed in 1977, in Zagreb, Croatia (ex-Yugoslavia). Founding members included: Jasenko Houra (rhythm guitar), Zoran Cvetković (lead guitar), Nino Hrastek (bass guitar) and Tihomir Fileš (drums). Its first vocalist became Davorin Bogović, although they were thinking about taking Davor Gobac (later of Psihomodo pop) instead. All of them, except Houra, previously played in another band called Ciferšlus, but after he joined them to form a new group, they opted for the name Prljavo kazalište after an episode of the satirical Italian comic book Alan Ford, which was very popular in the former Yugoslavia. In its early beginnings, Prljavo kazalište's was a punk band, although they initially wanted to sound like The Rolling Stones for whom they maintained a great admiration. The group performed live for a first time in 1978 at a gig organized by the magazine "Polet" where they were noted for their furious punk image and stage performance. In the same year, Prljavo kazalište released its first single, the punk rock sounding "Televizori" for the major record label Jugoton. It featured three songs: "Televizori", "Majka" and "Moje djetinjstvo". In 1979, Suzy Records released their second single "Moj je otac bio u ratu". That song was included in the compilation album "Novi punk val" compiled by Igor Vidmar, along with Pankrti, Paraf and other prominent artists of the former Yugoslav punk scene. In 1979, they released their first eponymous album, produced by Piko Stančić, for Suzy Records. It was promoted when the group performed as a support act of the Yugoslav band Bijelo dugme at a concert held at the JNA Stadium. During the recording sessions, Zoran Cvetković left the band and was replaced by Marijan Brkić. The album soon came to prominence all over the former Yugoslav federation for its social commentary and provoked the then-ruling one-party system, additionally because it also featured probably the first gay-themed song in Yugoslavia titled "Neki dječaci" (followed later by "Retko te viđam sa devojkama" by Idoli). The authorities valuated the album as "šund" and hence they imposed higher taxes on its sale price, while the records considered "truly artistic" enjoyed a reduced tax rate. Despite that, the group was not banned and it could freely continue to work and sell records, because non-aligned Yugoslavia was not so strict regarding censorship as the other communist states. Although the band played on the album in a rudimentary manner, the media and the public proclaimed it one of the best debut albums ever released in Yugoslavia. The record sleeve was designed by Mirko Ilić and featured a parody of the famous John Pasche's Tongue and Lips design with an added safety pin, representing the band's equal respect for both punk rock and The Rolling Stones.

With newfound success SMAK recorded their second album 'Crna Dama' in the UK, in two versions, one in their native Serbian and the other in English which was released with the translated title "Black Lady". Signed to Bellophon in Germany and Fantasy in the Unated States, Smak's sound draws favorable comparisons to "Down To Earth" period Nektar, Lucifer's Friend and Deep Purple although nothing is particularly outstanding.
