During the late 1981, former Pekinška Patka members Zoran Bulatović "Bale" (guitar) and Marinko Vukomanović "Mare" (bass guitar) with former La Strada members Slobodan Tišma (vocals) and Ivan Fece "Firchie" (drums) joined together and formed LUNA. Since the band members were already well-known, the formation of the band caused great interest in the public. The band started writing new material, with Bulatović being responsible for the music writing, while Tišma was the band's lyricist. A few days before the band's first public appearance, Vukomanović had left the band, forming his own pop group Primavera, and was replaced by Jasmina Mitrušić "Mina" (keyboards, vocals). The first appearance the band made in March 1982, in Vienna Arena on the "Novosadski novi talas festival". After the festival, Luna started performing at numerous Novi Sad and Belgrade venues, establishing itself a cult status. In Radio Novi Sad studios, the band recorded their first demo, with "Ogledalo Lune" being the most notable track, becoming a local hit. Soon after, the band went on a Croatian and Slovenian tour during which, after the Kopar concert, the band met Marko Brecelj, a former Buldožer member, who took their demo recordings to his former band-mate Boris Bele, one of the head of the Helidon record label. Having returned from the tour, the band entered the Aquarius Studio in Belgrade, where, with the help of sound engineer Đorđe Petrović and producer Saša Habić recorded their debut album. However, by the time their first and only studio album, "Nestvarne stvari", had been released, on early 1984 by Helidon, due to a conflict between Bulatović and Tišma, the band had already disbanded. After the album release, the Rock magazine voted the album the seventh best album of the year 1984, and the band also got the award "Sedam Sektetara SKOJ-a" in Zagreb. Tišma and Mitrušić reformed La Strada, Bulatović went to serve the Yugoslav People's Army and Fece joined Ekatarina Velika and later moved to the United States of America. Together with Bulatović, former Električni Orgazam keyboard player Ljubomir Đukić and Igra Staklenih Perli bassist Draško Nikodijević "Dracula" he formed a supergroup "Collateral Damage", but the band did not release any material. Meanwhile, Fece was also the member of Jakarta, which disbanded in 1986. Mitrušić finished the Musical Academy studies and moved to Italy. After La Strada disbanded, Tišma quit his musical career and released two poetry books. (from wikipedia)

"Maljčiki" is the second single by the Serbian and former Yugoslav New wave rock band IDOLI. Vlada Divljan, the member of Idoli wanted to create a song which would be a parody on the Soviet Socialist realism. The song depicts a sort of Stakhanov-like proletarian who enthusiastically wakes up in the early dawn to go to work in a mine and a metallurgy factory. The song also included ethnic Russian music elements and some nebulose Russian language lyrics that nobody from the band could understand. The Russian language part on the officially released version was narrated by Dragan Papić who was the band's manager at that time. (from wikipedia)

VIS IDOLI was officially formed on March 1, 1980 when the band had their first rehearsal. The first lineup consisted of primary school friends Vlada Divljan (guitar, vocals), Zdenko Kolar (bass), Boža Jovanović (drums) and Divljan's high school friends Srđan Šaper (percussion, vocals) and Nebojša Krstić (percussion). At that time the band collaborated with Dragan Papić who was a kind of media activist. The band manipulated the media very well. For example, they were to announce a change to the band's name on several occasions and the new names would be "Apoloni 5" or "Idoli plus bradonje" because of Kolar and Jovanović's wearing beards. On June 1980, the band made their first live appearance at Belgrade's SKC with the leading Serbian new wave acts. After a month of existence, the band released their first single with a magazine called "Vidici" and it consisted of two tracks, "Pomoć, pomoć" and "Retko te viđam sa devojkama", a song with a gay-hint. Already parting ways with Papić, the band recorded another version of the track as a B-side of "Maljčiki" single, but this time in Zagreb with the producer Goran Bregović. At the 1980 Subotica Youth Festival, where new wave bands from Zagreb and Belgrade met for the first time, they appeared with the track "Zašto su danas devojke ljute?" and got one of the prizes. Idoli, with Električni Orgazam and Šarlo Akrobata participated in the project called "Paket aranžman" with four tracks, "Schwule Über Europa" (a parody on the attitude towards Germans) "Plastika", "Maljčiki" (Russian for "Boys", a parody on Russians) and "Amerika". The promotional video for "Maljčiki" was banned on national television and some radio stations after the Soviet embassy responded. The band had its first independent concert on June 25 at the garden of Belgrade's SKC. The scalpers sold the tickets four times the original price. The opening acts were Bezobrazno Zeleno, VIA Talas, Marko Brecelj and Feo Volarić. The next release was a self-titled EP or mini LP as it was called in former Yugoslavia, featuring six tracks including a cover version of Chuck Berry's "Come On" ("Hajde") and Darko Kraljić's "Devojko mala". Film members Mladen Juričić (also known as Max Wilson) playing harmonica and Jurij Novoselić (also known as Kuzma Videosex) who played organ made guest appearances. The record was produced by another Film member, Ivan Stančić Piko. The cover of the album is the Red Nude by Amedeo Modigliani. Jugoton later re-released the EP with Film's live EP in Kulušić as a compilation album "Zajedno". A tour with Film came in 1981 when they traveled in a boat and played in sea side resorts. In the summer of 1981, a new drummer became Kokan Popović who previously played with Divljan and Kolar in Merlin and Zvuk Ulice. The band started recording their first album in autumn 1981 with Goran Vejvoda and Dušan Mihajlović Spira who ought to have been the assistant producer as they wanted to produce the record by themselves. After a short period Mihajlović left and the only assistance was Mile Miletić Pile. The recording of the album took more than four hundred hours which was a record in former Yugoslavia still to be broken. Guests on the album were Bebi Dol who did backing vocals on "Odbrana", and Vuk Vujačić, Goran Grbić and Slobodan Grozdanović were a brass section on "Senke su drugačije". "Odbrana i poslednji dani" came out in early 1982. It got the name from a Borislav Pekić book with the same title on which the whole album is based. It is a complex concept album dealing with an anthropological approach towards orthodoxy. The track "Poslednji dani" originally entitled "Maršal", dedicated to former Yugoslav president Josip Broz Tito, did not include the last verse due to the record company disapproval. A detail from a cloth on a Saint Nicholas icon was used as the cover and the font used on the record was a Cyrillic font similar to the one used in the Miroslav's Gospel. The band won the best album and the best cover award in 1982. In 1986 Yugoslav rock critics voted "Odbrana i poslednji dani" the best Yugoslav rock album of the 20th century. On July 1982, Zdenko Kolar went to serve in the army and his replacement was Bulevar bassist Branko Isaković. The band started recording a new album in London with producer Bob Painter. Even though they changed their style to pop/rock, "Čokolada" went platinum and the title track became their greatest commercial hit. There was a slight scandal about the track being composed by Dušan Gerzić for the band Via Talas and Šaper presenting it as an Idoli track. However, Gerzić was credited co-author on "Bambina" which was released as a single. For this record Divljan wrote only "Radostan dan", "Vetar i zastave" and "Ja sam tu" (for which Divljan added a verse from Mišo Kovač track "Plakat će zora" written by Drago Britvić) because he was about to graduate mining and geology at the University of Belgrade. At the same time Šaper graduated from his studies in movie directing. Guest appearances on the album were reporter Vivien Goldman who was a guest vocalist and producer Bob Painter who played the keyboards. The original idea was to release a double EP called "U gradu bez sna", but Jugoton refused and released it as a long play album. After performing in Ljubljana, in March 1984, due to conflicts between the members, the band ceased to exist. The last Idoli release was a soundtrack for the movie "Šest dana juna" directed by Dinko Tucaković. (from wikipedia)
