TAKO - Tako (1978)

 



















TAKO was formed in 1974, in Beograd, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia) by Dušan "Dule" Ćućuz (bass guitar, vocals), Đorđe Ilijin (keyboards, harmonica, flute, harp, vocals), Sava Bojić (guitar, vocals) and Milan "Mića Žorž" Lolić (drums). Previously, Dušan Ćućuz was a member of Džentlmeni and Plameni 6, he was one of the original Opus members and in the first half of the 1970s he worked as YU grupa's sound engineer, Sava Bojić was one of the original Pop Mašina members, and Đorđe Ilijin worked as a music teacher and often appeared as a guest musician on other bands' album recordings. During 1975 they made their first demo recordings, the songs "Čujem svoje misli", "Daždevnjak", "Lena" and "Čudan grad", in Radio Beograd studios. In 1977 guitarist and singer Miroslav Dukić and drummer Slobodan Felekatović replaced Bojić and Lolić and the band took part in Bijelo Dugme's concert at Hajdučka česma. In November 1977 Tako and progressive/acoustic rock band "S vremena na vreme" organized a quadraphonic sound concert in Belgrade Youth Center. The band also had a successful appearance at the 1978 Novi Sad BOOM festival. After they were refused as "non-commercial" by several major record labels, they signed for ZKP RTLJ after their performance at the Youth Festival in Subotica. The band released their debut self-titled album in 1978. The album featured symphonic rock-oriented songs with jazz elements. The song "Lena" featured Asim Sarvan on vocals. The song "Minijatura" was a tribute to the band Jethro Tull. The band promoted the album with a free concert held at Kalemegdan. After another quadraphonic sound concert organized with "S vremena na vreme" in Belgrade Youth Center, Tako went on hiatus in 1979 because Đorđe Ilijin got arthritis and Miroslav Dukić left the band. A year later the band continued their activity. Their second album, "U vreći za spavanje", was released in September 1980. Every song on the album was produced by the member of the band who wrote it. The band went on a tour, however, due to the departure of Slobodan Felekatović, who left the band due to his army obligations, and due to the great popularity of New Wave bands, Tako disbanded. They held their farewell concert at the University of Belgrade Faculty of Philosophy at the beginning of 1981. (from progarchives.com)

DAH - Veliki cirkus (1974)

 























DAH was a rock band formed in Beograd, in 1972, and original members were Zlatko Manojlović (guitar), Branko Marušić Čutura (vocal, guitar), Branko Gluščević (bass) and Radomir Dubičanin (drums). The band appeared at Ljubljana's "Boom Pop Festival '73". They promoted the first 7" single "Ako pozeliš" by playing live in a record store's shopwindow, which was a bit of oddity at the time. Čutura left the band and they continued as trio with Manojlović assuming vocal responsabilities. Velibor Bogdanović soon joined as a new drummer, replacing Dubičanin. This line-up recorded debut album "Veliki cirkus" in 1974. The group enjoyed brief but prominent international success when they recorded hit single "Šošana" during their sojourn in Belgium, in 1975. For this occasion Manojlović was supported by his brother Dragan Mihajlović (violin), Zdenko Pomper (bass) and Stevan Milutinović (drums). While in Belgium, the band used the name "Land", and featured new members. Along with Manojlović and Bogdanović, there were keyboardist Goran Manojlović, Tommy Schpalteholtz and Villy Pulz. "Šošana" single was issued by Polydor across Europe and it even raised to No. 1 on the top list of Radio Morocco. During their stay in Luxembourg in 1975 they played joint sessions with Dutch progressive rock legends Focus. Upon return to Yugoslavia in 1976 they released the second album "Povratak". The band disbanded soon after its release. Manojlović continued with a not-so-successful solo career and formed heavy metal band Gordi in late 1977. (by Seyo)

SAMONIKLI - Samonikli (1963-1969)

 























SAMONIKLI was formed in 1963, in Beograd, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia) by four high school students. The band was named after a book of short stories by Slovenian writer Prežihov Voranc. Group members changed frequently in that early period, but by 1964 they stabilized in the following lineup: Marin Pečjak (vocals), Milan Pavlov (guitar), Marko Novaković (bass guitar), Bojan Drndić (rhythm guitar) and Vukašin Veljković (drums). Initially the band performed at school proms and college dance parties. The band covered rock hits, as well as traditional songs and 1930s and 1940s schlagers, while their own songs were mostly The Shadows-inspired instrumentals. In 1965 and 1966 they played regularly at dances at the Beograd University School of Technology and soon became widely popular. In 1966 they won first place at a country-wide Youth Festival of rock bands, which entitled them to represent their country at an international festival of youth orchestras in Hungary, which featured the best Eastern European groups of that time (Illés, Metró, Omega, etc.), where they were viewed as a "western" group. The April 1966 issue of Beograd youth magazine "Susret" wrote that Samonikli were the first "electric guitar band" in Beograd to work with a group of violinists, preparing their subsequent two recordings ("Dozvoljavate li gospodine" and "Povetarac i ja", the latter of which became one of the top hits of 1966 on a popular Radio Beograd II music program called "Muzički automat"). At the end of 1966 they were joined by the drummer Branislav Grujić. They were featured in a very popular series of shows on Beograd Television called "Koncert za ludi mladi svet". Their recordings were featured in many popular radio programs, including "Nedeljom u devet i pet", produced and hosted by Nikola Karaklajić. Toward the end of their career in 1967 and 1968, they covered many hits by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. They broke up in early 1969 to pursue other professional interests. (from wikipedia)
