SILUETE - Sve najbolje (1966-69)




































SILUETE officially formed on October 20, 1961 by Zoran Miščević (vocals) and Branko Gluščević (formerly of Black Cats, rhythm guitar), Ilija Stanić (guitar), Zoran Simjanović (keyboard) and Miroslav "Mine" Minić (drums). The band members, influenced by the film The Young Ones which featured Cliff Richard and The Shadows, named the band Siluete. The band had their first bigger performance on Đorđe Marjanović's concert in Dom sindikata. After performances in Makarska during the summer of 1963, the members of Siluete departed. Simjanović moved to Elipse, Gluščević and Miščević formed Lutalice with guitarist Božidar "Lari" Plesničar and rhythm guitarist Slobodan Mihajlović, and Ilić continued to lead Siluete in the new lineup: Dejan Dunjić (bass guitar), Jovan Mišević (drums), Miomir "Kraka" Petrović (rhythm guitar) and Ljuba Đorđević (keyboard). As the band performed instrumental music, at one of their performances they were approached by singer Tomislav "Tomi" Sovilj (formerly of Zlatni Dečaci) who suggested them to work together, but this collaboration lasted for only a year. As Lutalice disbanded in 1964 Miščević moved back to Siluete which soon achieved high success with their live performances. In the mid 1964 Tomi Sovilj formed his own Siluete, but the members of the original Siluete sued him and he lost the right to use the name Siluete. During 1965 Siluete shocked the audience with their live performances, which secured them with huge popularity. At the time there were around 230 rock bands in Belgrade, but all of them wore short hair and tidy clothes, which were the standards Siluete changed. At the Gitarijada (not to be confused with Gitarijada festival held in Zaječar) held on January 9, 1966 on Belgrade's Sajmište Siluete performed with other popular rock bands. That evening a former member of Beduini, guitarist Dragi Jelić performed with the band for the first time. In 1967 Siluete won the first place on Gitarijada organized by Večernje novosti. They released their first single with songs "Tvoj rođendan" (cover of Small Faces's "Sha la la la lee"), "Keti", "Najdraži san" (cover of The Searchers' "When You Walk in the Room") and "Uhvati vetar" (cover of Donovan's "Catch the Wind") and sold more than 45,000 copies of it. At the time film direction student Srđan Karanović recorded a television movie about Siluete titled "Učio sam dve godine kontrabas". The band also appeared in Branko Bauer's film "Doći i ostati". During 1966 they often performed in Belgrade and Zagreb on the exhibitions of painter Olja Ivanjicki. The band appeared on front covers of various magazines and Miščević's long blond hair caused numerous scandals. There were several attempts by citizens of Belgrade to cut his hair, so he got the media's attention by trying to insure his hair. On New Year's Eve 1967 they held a twenty-three hour concert in Belgrade's Dom Omladine. In January 1968, at their concert in Sarajevo, a riot broke out. Great number of chairs was broken, Miščević's shirt was ripped off, his gold necklace was split, Ljuba Đorđević was hit on the head with a bottle, and Siluete manager's wallet was stolen. At the Siluete concert in Novi Sad band members broke their guitars, got in a fight with the audience and the band's van was damaged. Miščević regularly received hundreds of letters from his fans becoming the first Yugoslavmegastar since Đorđe Marjanović. The band tried to break into the foreign market; for months they performed in Austria and Germany, but then guitarist Dragi Jelić left the band and went back to Yugoslavia where he joined the band Džentlmeni (he would later form highly successful YU grupa with his brother Žika). Jelić was replaced by a former Džentlmeni member Slobodan Todorović. During the absence of Siluete from Yugoslavia some newspapers published the news that Siluete performed at a graveyard in Nuremberg. After returning to Yugoslavia the band released the single with songs "Dona" i "Voleti nekog" and organized comeback concert in Belgrade's Dom omladine, and went on Yugoslav tour. In 1969 Dunjić left the band and was replaced by the bass guitarist and painter Aleksandar Cvetković. After releasing the single "Dosadan dan" they started performing in clubs all over Europe, but when the band members realized that their intention to release a record for the foreign market will not be realized they split-up. Cvetković moved to the band CD and Miščević remained in Germany for two more years. After returning to Yugoslavia in 1973 he performed with various bands and then retired. (from wikipedia)
