ELEKTRIČNI ORGAZAM formed in 1979, in Beograd, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia). Originally starting as a combination of new wave, punk rock and post-punk, the band later slowly changed their style, becoming a mainstream rock act. Their fourth album named "Distorzija" is really one of the best yugo rock records. Almost every song is hit. They smelted late 60s Stones r & b sound together with punk energy and great power pop melodies. Here and there they added some psychobilly spices and acid rock magic. With this record they became very popular in whole Yugoslavia. (from jugobeat.com)

Disappointed by a lack of success, KORNELIJE KOVAČ decided to disband KORNI GRUPA after the last concert in Novi Sad, in November 1974. The third album "Mrtvo more" was released post-humuous as the first Yugoslavian double LP. The first record contained parts of their farewell concert in Novi Sad, while the second record was a sort of "Best of" collection of their pop singles.

KORNI GRUPA was formed in September 1968 in Beograd, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia) by former Indexi keyboardist Kornelije Kovač. The first lineup of the band included guitarist Borko Kacl (a former Zlatni Dečaci member), bass guitarist Bojan Hreljac (a former Elipse member), drummer Vladimir "Furda" Furduj (a former Ellipse member) and female singer Miroslava "Seka" Kojadinović. The band had its first live appearance in Belgrade's Dom sindikata at the sportsman-of-the-year award ceremony. In 1969 Dalibor Brun left the band conventionally, and the band's new singer became a former Dinamiti member Dado Topić who soon after brought another former Dinamiti member, guitarist Josip Boček to the band. Borko Kacl soon left the band, and retired from music (and died in a car accident at the beginning of 1980s). With Dado Topić Korni Grupa turned to more progressive-oriented sound, recording songs "Jedna žena", "Prvo svetlo u kući broj 4" and "Žena je luka a čovek brod". At the 1970 Zagreb music festival Korni Grupa won both audience and jury awards. The same year they recorded music for Miša Radivojević's movie "Bube u glavi". This project was followed by a number of hit songs: "Trla baba lan" (which will later be recorded in French by singer Dalida, and later on in several other different languages by a number of artists) and "Slika", among others.(from wikipedia)
