PETAR PAN was formed in 1986, and spent the first year of activity preparing their debut album. After several lineup changes, the default lineup was formed, featuring Dejan Milošević (guitar, vocals), Veroljub Spasić (drums), Vangeli Dundas (guitar) and a former Mrgudi member Predrag Ivanišević (bass guitar). In 1989, the band won the first place at the Belgrade Spring festival demo bands competition. The award was a contract with PGP-RTB, however, the band never got an opportunity to record an album for the label. During the same year, the band released their debut album Od mržnje do ljubavi for the independent record label Rockland. Most of the album material was written by Milošević. Their following album, entitled "1", was released in 1990 through Rockland. The album featured melodic rock sound, and brought minor hits "Ptica" and "Bože pravde" (enitled after former anthem of Serbia), the latter composed by former Tvrdo Srce i Velike Uši and Ulica Od Meseca member Dragutin Savić. In 1993, Milošević left the band, and was replaced by former member of the Zagreb band Dum Dum Boys Dražen Kovačević. With him, the band recorded the album Bio jednom jedan r 'n' r, released in 1996 through ITMM. The album was produced by Dragoljub Spasić, and featured Dža ili Bu frontman Nebojša Simeunović "Sabljar" as guest. After the album was released, the band ended their activity. (from wikipedia)

DON MENTONY BAND became recognised in the late 1980s with the remake of the song "Tulsa Time" (in Slovenian Dobra mrha). The original team were guitarist Janez Hostnik, bass guitarist Frenk Brajer, drummer Robert Fritsch, singer Jani Kovačič and animator Miha Mentony. Later Janez Zmazek - Žan joined as guitarist. Zmazek soon took over the lead in the band and in the early 1992 (after three released albums) the group was left by bass guitarist and singer. Zmazek didn't want to seek another singer, so he decided to sing by himself. The bass player was in March 1992 replaced by Aleksander Cepuš (Alex Bass). In April 1992, the renewed band started to concert. They played two concerts: 20 years of Val 202 in Križanke (MC ZKP RTV 1992) and benefit concert for Bosnia and Herzegovina in Hala Tivoli. They recorded the album "Ko noč zamenja dan" and album for the singer Janko Ropret. They also performed at a festival Melodije morja in sonca in Portorose and as main guests on a pop workshop 1992. At the end of 1992, the bass guitarist was replaced by Ana Karenini, who played for three years. In that period, many other guitarists were replaced who tried to substitute Janez Hostnik, who left the band in 1993; first came guitarist Bruno, then for the same period Matej Mršnik and at the end Zvone Kukec. After a period of inactivity, the frontman again gathered a group of musicians in 2010 and resumed performing under this name.
