TOP GENERATION (who started out as "Korali" and later on "Generacija") was a rock band from Maribor (Slovenia) who extensively toured Central Europe in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Amongst themselves, they made a distinction between The Beatles and The Rolling Stones’ followers. But unquestionably a fact remains that they were the first and leading beatniks in Slovenia. This is their recordings from 1969-1972.

TROBECOVE KRUŠNE PEĆI was the cult band from Zagreb (Croatia), in the beginning of the 80's, distinctive not only for its bizarre name (inspired by incinerators which served Slovenian serial killer from mid 70's, Metod Trobec) but also because of its intensive, concrete and noisy variation of rock and roll music. "Trobecove krušne peći are equally illogical, radical, innocent and rough, and they expect the same from you. They're getting hold of unusual obsessions and tensions from reality, only to distort them even further and turn them into tauntingly important remarks" (Polet, April 27th 1983). In 1985, in Ljubljana they recorded material for their debut album that has never been released during the time the band was active. It was released during 1995 only in audio-cassette form for Kekere Aquarium. (from darkscene.blogspot.com)

KAMELEONI started in 1965 in Koper, Slovenia (ex-Yugoslavia). Same year they had their first gig. 1966 they share first price of Championship of Yugoslav bands together with Roboti. Their song "Sjaj izgubljene ljubavi" becomes very popular and they tour whole ex Yugoslavia. They also play often in Austria and Italy. They also played in famous Piper club in Rome. In 1968 they have some members changes and they make music for film "Sončni krik". They split up 1969 but they have reunion concert in 1981 when they make their first long play record. They are still active and few years ago they released album with new songs. Personally, Kameleoni are one of my favorite 60s bands. I can compare them with The Byrds - they have those nice lazy feeling in their music, beautiful vocals and magical jingle sound of guitar. Kameleoni were influenced by early folk punk sound - not only The Byrds but also Love. I like their cover versions of "Dedicated to the One I Love", "With a Girl Like You", "For No One", but I like their songs as "Sjaj izgubljene ljubavi" (one of the best 60s songs), "Looking For Me", "Gdje si ljubavi" even more.

DŽENTLMENI was formed in 1966 in Beograd, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia) by Slobodan Todorović (guitar and vocals), Živorad "Žika" Jelić (bass guitar), Milan Buza (rhythm guitar) and Velibor "Boka" Bogdanović (drums), getting the name "Džentlmeni" on Todorović's idea, despite Jelić's suggestion of naming the band "Žetoni". The lineup performed until April 1967 when the band had split in two fractions. Todorović did not continue working with any of the fractions, moving to Siluete and then to the band CD. Milan Buza, with Branko Stefanović (vocals), Đorđe Doksas (solo guitar), Moma Lukić (drums) and Dušan Ćućuz (bass guitar), performed under the moniker Džentlmeni for approximately a year at local parties before disbanding in 1968. The other fraction, featuring Bogdanović and Jelić, continued working with the new Džentlmeni lineup, completed by Mihajlo Simikić (tenor saxophone, clarinet, piano and vocals), Branko Marušić "Čutura" (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Žika Jelić's brother Dragan "Dragi" Jelić (guitar). During the Summer of 1967, the band had an Adriatic tour, performing for several months at the isle Hvar and several other resorts, basing their repertoire on cover versions of popular rhythm and blues hits, but also presenting their own material. The frequent live performances provided the band with a status of a leading live act in Belgrade. One of the song from the band performance at the 1968 Subotica Youth festival, "Veseli svet", written by Đorđe Uzelac, was released on the festival official compilation release, along with other bands who performed at the festival. During the same year, the band performed at another major festival, Beogradsko proleće, with the song "To je tvoj stil", written by Vojkan Borisavljević. The song was also included on the band debut 1968 extended play "Idi", featuring the title track, a cover version of Sandie Shaw single "Today", "Naša mladost", recorded at the Subotica Youth festival in 1968, and "Slatko", a cover version of The Drifters hit "Sweets for My Sweet". The song "Naša mladost" also appeared on the various artists compilation 20 godina festivala "Omladina", released for the Subotica Youth festival 20th anniversary in 1981. The following year, in 1969, the band performed again at the Beogradsko proleće festival, with the song "Korak ka suncu", released by PGP-RTB on the official festival compilation. The band also released their second EP "Slomljena srca", featuring the title track, a cover version of the Don Gibson single "Sea of Heartbreak", "Kraj snova", written by Dragi Jelić, "Hellule, Hellule", originally performed by The Tremeloes, and Branko Marušić's song "Nisi došla". The band released their final release in 1970, the single "Ona je moja", a cover version of the song "34-06", with "Da li su važne reči?", a cover version of the song "There's a Better Day Coming", both originally performed by The Dave Clark Five. After the single release, the Jelić brothers and Boka Bogdanović, with keyboard player Miodrag Okuglić formed the band YU Grupa. Marušić continued working with Džentlmeni in the lineup: Zlatko Manojlović (guitar), Robert Nemeček (bass guitar), and Dušan Banović (drums), but the band had frequent lineup changes, and some of the musicians performing with the band were guitarist Zoran Božinović, and bassists Dušan Petrović and Slađana Milošević, before disbanding in 1972.

In late 1983, Predrag Cvetičanin (guitar, vocals) with Zoran Đorđević (guitar), Branko (bass guitar), and Boban (drums) formed the band DOBRI ISAK. Having performed at minor local clubs, the band recorded a home made demo recording, however, the lineup dissolved during the summer of the following year. After several months, Predgrag Cvetičanin, with bassist Miloš Miladinović, and drummer Saša Marković "Markiz", reformed the band. In the period of 1984 and 1985, Nenad Cvetičanin, Predrag's brother, also became a member of the band. He joined the band while his own band, Arnold Layne, was on hiatus. Together with Nenad Cvetičanin, the band recorded their first and only studio album "Mi plačemo iza tamnih naočara", released in 1986 by the Niš Student Cultural Center (SKC), being the first release of the Studentkult production, which released an array of musical and literary releases. The album, released on compact cassette only and printed in a limited number of 100 copies, had been distributed by the Ljubljana ŠKUC, and rapidly sold out. The band presented their new material to the Niš audience, also performing at the 1985 Serbian Youth Festival in Knjaževac, winning the Best Performance Award, and gaining the opportunity to appear at the Dani Novih Omladinskih Novina in Split on summer of the same year. After the Split performance, the band appeared with several other Niš bands at the "Pozdrav iz Niša" manifestation in Skopje. In a short period of time, the band had another performance in Skopje, appearing as guests at the first solo concert of the band Padot na Vizantija. During the late 1985, the band performed at the Rock Bands Festival held at the Beograd's Dom Omladine, and on early 1986, the band had two appearances at the Zagreb alternative rock festival Yu Rock Moment, on March in the semi-final, and on May at the festival finale, held at the Republic Square, performing with Let 3, Oktobar 1864, and Mizar. During 1986, Predrag Cvetičanin produced the recordings for the Niš new romantic band Romantične Boje, even singing part of the lead vocals on the track "San", but the recordings were never released due to the unsuccessful negotiations with PGP-RTB. Dobri Isak performed until June 1986, when they held their last concert at the Niš Synagogue, appearing with Arnold Layne and Mizar, after which they decided to split up. (from wikipedia)
