RIBLJA ČORBA - Priča o Žiki Živcu (1984) Single

RIBLJA ČORBA fourth single record from 1984.

RIBLJA ČORBA - Mrtva priroda (1981)

RIBLJA ČORBA was officially formed on the August 15, 1978 in kafana "Šumatovac". The band was formed by former Rani Mraz member Bora Đorđević (vocals, acoustic guitar and songwriter) and former SOS members Miša Aleksić (bass guitar), Miroslav Milatović (drums) and Rajko Kojić (guitar). Their intention was to name the band Bora & Ratnici, but eventually, the band was named Riblja Čorba, which was at the time Belgrade slang for menstruation. Riblja Čorba had its first concert in Elemir on the September 8. In November, Radio Belgrade show "Veče uz radio" celebrated its birthday in Subotica sport hall. Riblja Čorba played only two songs and animated the audience. They won new fans at the fundraising concert in Sarajevo and BOOM festival in Novi Sad. On the December 22 they released their first single, "Lutka sa naslovne strane", a hard rock ballad about a fame-hungry model, which became an immediate hit on radio stations. At the time Đorđević decided to leave acoustic guitar and dedicate himself to singing. Soon Riblja Čorba got rhytm guitarist, Momčilo Bajagić, who became a member of the band on Kojić's suggestion. This lineup held its first concert on the January 7, 1979 in Jarkovac. On the February 28 they held a long promoted concert in Dom omladine, which was the band's first concert in Belgrade. While the band perdformed "Lutka sa naslovne strane" Đorđević broke a fashion doll. Minka Kamberović's ballerinas also took part in the concert. That evening Riblja Čorba played most of the songs that would be released on their first album. In the beginning of March the band held several concerts in Macedonia. On their concert in Dolovo Aleksić fell from the stage and broke his leg, so until the end of the tour he was replaced by Aleksandar Cvetković. On March 19 they released their second single with songs "Rock'n'Roll za kućni savet" and "Valentino iz restorana". Marina Tucaković wrote part of "Valentino iz restorana" lyrics, which was the only time in Riblja Čorba career that the writer of the lyrics was someone outside the band. Riblja Čorba spent the summer in Makarska, where they practiced for the coming debut album promotin. The concert was held on September 1 in Tašmajdan. Although the album was released ten days after the concert, Tašmajdan was sold out. Bulevar, Formula 4 and Meri Cakić's antiballet group Ribetine also performed at the concert. Meri Cakić, who appeared on the concert wearing garter belts, has, by some, inspired Đorđević to write "Lutka sa naslovne strane". On this concert Đorđević got his concert nickname Bora Majstor. Several days later Đorđević went to Doboj and Kojić went to Sarajevo, due to their army obligations. On November 28, the band, without Đorđević and Kojić performed at the marathon concert in Sarajevo. Riblja Čorba's debut album, "Kost u grlu" was soon released. Album was met with a great thrill. It brought a large number of hits: "Zvezda potkrovlja i suterena", "Egoista", "Ja sam još ona ista budala", "Ostani đubre do kraja". The album was sold in more than 120,000 copies, Đorđević was proclaimed the rock musician of the year by some music magazines, and Riblja Čorba's hard rock sound with blues inputs achieved high success, although the age of New Wave was about to begin. At the end of the July 1980 Đorđević appeared in Belgrade to record "Nazad u veliki prljavi grad" with Bajagić, Milatović and Kojić. On December 31 and January 1, 1981 Riblja Čorba held two concerts with Atomsko Sklonište. Concerts were held in Pionir Hall in Belgrade and were advertised as "Atomska Čorba". In February 1981 Riblja Čorba released its second album "Pokvarena mašta i prljave strasti". Album brought a whole serie of hits: "Ostaću slobodan", "Lak muškarac", ballads "Neke su žene pratile vojnike", "Nemoj srećo, nemoj danas", "Dva dinara druže", "Rekla je". Riblja Čorba promoted album on their Yugoslav tour. After their return to Belgrade, they held a concert in Kalemegdan's Rockoteka. Band's special guest was Ian Gillan Band's bass guitarist John McCoy. In the summer band recorded its third album "Mrtva priroda" with McCoy as the producer. "Mrtva priroda" brought Riblja Čorba's first political song, "Na zapadu ništa novo". Album was sold in more than 450,000 copies. (from wikipedia)

BIJELO DUGME - Koncert kod Hajdučke česme (1977)

"Koncert kod Hajdučke česme" is the first live release by BIJELO DUGME. The album's title refers to the band's famous concert played before approximately 100,000 people on August 28, 1977 near Hajdučka česma grounds at Košutnjak Park in Beograd, however, the material on the record is only partially recorded at the said event. After disappointingly realizing the concert recording sounded terrible on tape due to technical limitations and the wide open space, the band played another show at "Đuro Đaković Hall" in Sarajevo on October 25, 1977, which is the actual performance heard on the album. In the end, the only part of original Hajdučka česma concert that ended up on the record is the crowd reaction after each song. (from wikipedia)

BIJELO DUGME - Da mi je znati koji joj je vrag (1975) Single

BIJELO DUGME fourth single record from 1975.

BIJELO DUGME - Uspavanka za Radmilu M. (1983)

Coming off their New Wave-inspired "Doživjeti stotu" album, which was a radical departure from BIJELO DUGME's original folkish hard rock style, "Uspavanka za Radmilu M." was to be the band's chance for redemption as they decided to make it a lot less New Wave-oriented. And though it had a considerably more favourable initial reception than its predecessor, most still found it to be unfocused and incoherent. Tracks like the opening "Polubauk polukruži poluevropom" and the Lou Reedesque "Ovaj ples dame biraju", both featuring barely intelligible lyrics, were in many circles taken as the defining proof that Goran Bregović was fast becoming a spent author with no new credible ideas. "U vrijeme otkazanih letova" fuses lyrics featuring oriental motifs with the '80s new romantic sound. The band only somewhat sounds like the famous Bijelo dugme of old on "Ako možeš zaboravi" (by far the best known song off the album) and "Zašto me ne podnosi tvoj tata". The album is rounded off by "Ne plači", followed by the instrumental title track. Still, Goran Bregović managed to get the public's attention by having Željko Bebek sing "Kosovska" in Albanian. The fact that this occurred only a year after 1981 Albanian protests in Kosovo made the song a controversial choice. In addition to generating media publicity for the band, "Kosovska" also opened new doors for Bijelo Dugme as they now felt comfortable staging a concert in Priština - something that most other Yugoslav bands at the time stayed away from due to fears of crowd trouble. The track also featured Leb i Sol leader Vlatko Stefanovski on guitar. During its making, Bregović conceptulized "Uspavanka za Radmilu M." as the band's farewell record. He later said: “When we were working on "Uspavanka", we approached it with the intent of making it our final album. Some pieces came together that made it clear to us that it is time to go. I planned on making our Belgrade concert at Sajmište on April 24, 1983 our last, but the entire atmosphere was so good, that we had a change of heart." And while "Uspavanka za Radmilu M." turned out not to be Bijelo dugme's swan song, it was the end of an era in other ways. It was their last album featuring Željko Bebek, founding member who spent the previous decade as the group's lead singer. He officially left in April 1984 to pursue a solo career, following a long period of quiet and open feuding with Bregović, mostly over revenue sharing. It was also the last studio album Bijelo dugme released for Jugoton, as the record label wasn't happy with the band's recent shift towards New Wave, which they thought perciptated a drop in sales. On the other hand, Bregović thought the lack of a proper marketing effort by the label contributed to band's deteriorating popularity. (from wikipedia)
