PANKRTI - Dolgcajt (1980)

PANKRTI were a punk rock band from Ljubljana, Slovenia (ex-Yugoslavia) active in the late 1970s and during the 1980s. They were known for provocative and politically engaged songs and billed themselves "The First Punk Band Behind The Iron Curtain". They are one of the most important former Yugoslav Punk groups and one of the first punk rock bands ever formed in a communist country. The band started playing in fall of 1977, practicing in the basement of Kodeljevo's music school, and held the first concert at Moste High School. Initially they played covers of established punk bands including the Sex Pistols, The Clash and New York Dolls. Some of their first songs that became popular were "Za železno zaveso", "Anarhist" and "Lublana je bulana". They were included in the "Novi punk val" compilation album. They released their first album "Dolgcajt" in 1980 and gained the status of a cult band all over former Yugoslavia. Their second album “Državni ljubimci” was highly appreciated in the public and gained an award for best Yugoslav album of the year. In 1984 they released their third "Rdeči album". Its title is an obvious pun on the famous album by The Beatles and red as a symbol of communism. The album featured a cover version of the famous Italian communist revolutionary song "Bandiera Rossa", which is one of their most famous tracks. One of their last concerts was in "Tivoli Hall" in Ljubljana in 1987, named "Zadnji pogo". In 1996 the group temporarily reformed to perform as a support act for the Sex Pistols concert in Ljubljana during their "Filthy Lucre Tour". In 2003, Pankrti were included in the 2003 Yugonostalgic Croatian rockumentary "Sretno dijete", which deals with the former Yugoslav Punk and New Wave scene of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

MIZAR - Svjat Dreams (1990)

"Svjat Dreams" is the second studio album released by the group MIZAR.

MIZAR - Mizar (1988)

MIZAR was formed in 1983 in Skopje, Macedonia (ex-Yugoslavia). They achieved a status of a cult band, especially in Republic of Macedonia and across the former Yugoslavia. The group is notable for its first self-titled album, as it was the first Yugoslav rock record in Macedonian language. Previously, Macedonian bands often recorded in Serbo-Croatian for marketing reasons, as it was the most widespreaded language in the multilingual former Yugoslav Federation. The album was a major success and it is listed among the top ten rock albums ever released in Yugoslavia. Because of the band's avant-garde sound and image, its orthodox christian leanings and support for Macedonian self-determination, they were viewed with certain degree of suspicion by the former communist regime. Still, the group received great media attention including numerous appearances on the national television. (from answers.com)
