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.
