When it comes to 60's, there was thousands of rock'n'roll and garage bands all over Yugoslavia. However, only a very few bands made any records. This is the story of a band which recorded perhaps the most exciting garage rock EP in the 60's. Their name is DELFINI and they come from Zagreb. Several students with a professional singer Zdenko Juran formed Delfini in 1963. They played together for several years until record label Jugoton cut them a deal and published their first EP record. Their energy and creativity especially unleashed in an explosive James Brown cover "I'll Go Crasy". However, the real highlight is an addictive blues version of the Macedonian folk song "Kaleš bre Anđo" , with an amazing keyboard solo by Petko Kantardžijev. Nikola Sarapa also delivered a fine guitar work. Much later in his career, Sarapa had an excellent hard rock band called Stop mostly based on Jimmy Hendrix covers. Unfortunately, the EP was also the end of Delfini's creative period. By the end of 1967 Juran and the bass player Raymond Rujić hired the entire new crew and published their second EP with an inferior musicianship. Still, their song "Bebel" about the French actor Jean Paul Belmondo form their second EP is regarded as a wonderful example of proto-punk. (from blogs.myspace.com)

Mitar "Suba" Subotić a.k.a REX ILUSIVII was a Serbian-born musician and composer who was set to become one of Brazil's most prominent producers when he died in November 1999. He was a pioneer of electronic music in all of the former Yugoslav countries, since he mixed and produced a number of celebrated albums of Yugoslav New Wave acts such as Ekatarina Velika, Haustor, Marina Perazić in the course of the 1980s. In 1986, his fusion of electronic music and Yugoslav folk lullabies, "In The Mooncage" was awarded the International Fund for Promotion of Culture from UNESCO, which included a three-month scholarship to research Afro-Brazilian rhythms in Brazil. Falling in love with the country and its music, he emigrated to Sao Paulo in the 1990s, where his fruitful production began and ended. During that time he participated Milan Mladenović's last project "Angel's Breath", and recorded his famous album "Sao Paulo Confessions." On November 2, 1999, he was working on the post-production of the album of his new-found diva, Bebel Gilberto, when his studio caught fire. Overcome by smoke, he died trying to rescue the newly recorded material with her. Suba died just a few days after the release of his now-legendary album "Sao Paulo Confessions", and shortly before the completion of Bebel Gilberto's acclaimed "Tanto Tempo", the biggest selling Brazilian album outside Brazil.

ponedjeljak, 15. svibnja 2017.
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)
