  • Skopje, North Macedonia: hometown not only of Mother Teresa, but also of Fol Jazik - the first Macedonian punk rock band ever! Formed in 1978 by singer Vlado Hristov aka KRLE, they played a psych-garage influenced punk and were renowned for their bizarre look and powerful shows. In 1979 they disbanded and shorty after reformed with a new line up, before definitively calling it quits in 1980. Despite their short career, they’re still considered one of the most influential Yugoslavian bands, as proved by this brilliant 1979 single. (Rave Up records)

    40th Anniversary re-release of the best ex-Yugoslavian new wave/alternative album. Luxury 180g vinyl. Odbrana i poslednji dani (Serbian Cyrillic: Одбрана и последњи дани; trans. The Defense and the Last Days) is the first studio album by Yugoslav new wave band Idoli released in 1982. The band started recording their first long play album during autumn 1981. The band's initial plan was an album dealing with religion and tradition, which was seen as potentially provocative due to many aspects of these topics still being a taboo in communist Yugoslavia's public sphere at the time. Entering the studio, the band members still weren't entirely clear on what they wanted to do, either stylistically or musically. They had many ideas (within the specific context of Pekić's work, and also in broader philosophical scope), but turning them into music and finding satisfactory sound presented a challenge. Due to this experimental trial-and-error approach, the recording process ended up taking almost six months. Since Idoli were already well-known and popular all across the country, the recording process was documented in Yugoslav media whose many print outlets wondered about the group's creative potential and ability to cope with such ambitious project in light of the fact that it's taking them so long to record the album. Since the recording process lasted far too long for Jugoton's liking, the label wanted to release the album as soon as possible. The record came out very quickly in early 1982. Unlike the band's previous releases, which were well accepted both commercially and critically, the new album had the critics divided with reactions ranging from extremely positive to extremely negative. Since the band wanted to present the record as non-commercial, no promotional videos were recorded for the album. Fifty thousand copies of the album were sold in Yugoslavia, which was in sharp contrast to the band's previous release, the VIS Idoli EP, that sold roughly 200,000 copies. This resulted in the stylistic change of the next album the band recorded. - Odbrana i poslednji dani was one of the few Yugoslav albums reviewed by NME. It received a very positive and affirmative review. - In 1983, editors and critics from eight leading European magazines (Actuel, The Face, Wiener, etc.) selected Idoli the third among the ten most promising bands in Europe. - In 1985, Džuboks magazine critics voted Odbrana i poslednji dani the best Yugoslav rock album of the 20th century. - A special award was given by a French magazine which reviewed the album as one of the best European releases in 1982 along with the releases of Falco, Yello, and Depeche Mode.

    Coming from the same concrete jungle and Belgrade scene that brought you Apsurd, here's the release we've been preparing for a long time and are very excited about! This huge record delivers fourteen honest punk anthems that draw influences from the melodic, cold and melancholic side of Oi! punk while simulatenously recalling that post-punk swag that Peter And The test Tube Babies nailed on their classic album 'Soberphobia'. Add some Belgrade life asphalt bitterness, social commentary and generally bleak lyrics into the mix and you might get the idea what Kpax! are all about. The band's also wearing Yugo influences on their sleeves, but there's something in the chemistry, catchiness and texture of their songwriting that makes them stand out in the crowd. If you're into the new wave of french Oi! influenced post-punk led by Syndrome 81 and the gang, do not sleep on this future modern classic! Limited to 318 copies on black vinyl, including a double sided insert with lyrics. Artwork by Filip Cetković & Kpax! (Doomtown Records)

    Official reissue of impossible to find Yugoslavian new wave gem in edition of Blind Dog Records and Sareni Ducan (the first press from 1987 was printed in 500 copies). La Strada (Serbian Cyrillic: Ла Страда; Italian for The Road) was a Serbian and former Yugoslav new wave and later alternative rock band from Novi Sad. Formed in 1979 by Slobodan Tišma, the band recorded a three-song demo which was often broadcast on Radio Novi Sad. Having changed several lineups and despite having well received live appearances, the band disbanded in 1981. Tišma with at the time La Strada members Zoran Bulatović "Bale" and Ivan Fece "Firchie" formed Luna. After the Luna disbandment, in 1984 Tišma reformed La Strada with the former La Strada bassist Danijel Stari, former Luna member Jasmina Mitrušić "Mina", guitarist Žolt Horvat and drummer Robert Radić. The lineup entered the studio during the same year, however, it was in 1987 that the eponymous debut album La strada was released. After the album release the band lineup had changed but the band nevertheless disbanded soon afterward. In 2004, Luna reunited and performed at the Exit festival, and during the same year Tišma performed a solo concert with a half-hour set of La Strada songs at the Pančevo Grrr! festival, with the recording from the performance being released in 2011 under the La Strada moniker. In 1979, Slobodan Tišma (guitar, lead vocals) also known as "Deda" ("Grandpa"), a rock veteran and poet, inspired by the increasing popularity of new wave music in Yugoslavia formed La Starada, naming it by the Federico Fellini movie La Strada. The rest of the band consisted of Danijel Stari (bass guitar, arrangements), Boris Oslovčan "Bora" (bass guitar), Siniša Ilić "Siki" (guitar) and Dragan Nastasić "Gane" (guitar) and a temporary drummer Siniša Sekulić "Sekula". The band functioned with a studio and a live lineup as Stari did not want to perform live and bassist Oslovčan was his live replacement and drummer Sekulić also did not perform live so the band instead used a rhythm machine. The lineup made their first recordings in the Vranešević brothers studio, which consisted of three songs "On" ("Himself"), "Sat" ("Clock") and "Narcis" ("Narcicus") which were often broadcast on radio Novi Sad's shows Yu Pop Scena (Yu Pop Scene) and Novi Vidici (New Views) hosted by Dragan Gojković "Goja", one of the promoters of new wave music in Novi Sad. The former two tracks appeared on the semi-official compilation album Hokej klub Virginitas (Hokey Club Virginity), released in 1988 by Ding Dong Records. After the recording of the tracks both of the band's guitarists left the band and were replaced by Predrag Ostojić "Preža" (guitar) and Ivan Fece "Firchie" (drums).The new lineup made their first live appearance in 1980 at the Novi Sad club No. 1 as an opening act for Električni Orgazam.In May of the following year, the band performed at Festival Omladina, and at the Novi Sad Danube park handball playground, performing as an opening act for the band Film. After the performance at the Belgrade KST club in June 1981, due to a misunderstanding between the band members, bassist Oslovčan and then guitarist Ostojić left the band. After their departure Tišma remained the only guitar player and the new bassist became the former Pekinška Patka member Zoran Bulatović "Bale". At the time, the band was preparing for a three-date mini tour, including Novi Sad, Pančevo and Belgrade, organized by the Muzička Omladina concert agency, with the bands Lačni Franz, Čista Proza and Fotomodeli.[Despite being well-accepted at the performances, the band ceased to exist and Tišma, Fece and Bulatović went on to form Luna. After Luna disbanded, in 1984, Tišma and Stari, along with former Luna keyboard player and vocalist Jasmina Mitrušić "Mina", and former Gomila G and Kontraritam guitarist Žolt Horvat and drummer Robert Radić reformed La Strada. During the early 1985, in the annual Džuboks magazine's poll La Strada was pronounced as the greatest expectation of 1985. During the Spring of 1985, the song "Želje" ("Wishes") appeared on the various artists compilation Ventilator 202 vol. 3. After successful performances in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Zagreb, at the Yu Rock Momenat festival, the band entered the Radio Novi Sad studio 1 in order to record the material for their debut album with Mitar Subotić, also known as Rex Illusivi, as the album producer. The entire material was recorded in a single day, which was the reason why Tišma was not content with his vocal performance as he was exhausted after watching the entire Live Aid concert broadcast the day before. The recordings were then sent to the at the time editor of PGP RTB records Petar Popović, who was interested in releasing the material. However, after the label editor had changed, the new editor Oliver Mandić declined the material. In 1987 the music editors of Radio Novi Sad agreed to release the debut La Strada and Rex Illusivi albums in order to mark the thirtieth anniversary of the show Randevu sa muzikom (A Rendezvous With Music), and both albums were released in a limited printing of 500 copies. Unlike Luna's debut, La strada brought a more calmer and melodic sound, reminiscent of the 1960s psychedelic music combined with Tišma's poetry.[ The album featured several radio hits, including the song "Okean" ("The Ocean") for which a promotional video had been recorded. After the album release, Jasmina Mitrušić and Daniel Stari left the band and the new band members became a former Ove Sezone Vedri Tonovi guitarist Zoran Lekić "Leki" and the talented teenage bassist Ilija Vlaisavljević "Bebec". The new lineup held a live promotion of the released material before entering the studio in order to record the material for the second studio album. However, after the concert in Subotica during the late 1987, Tišma decided to disband La Strada and the material from the second studio album remained unreleased. Taken from Wikipedia.

    Luna - Nestvarne Stvari LP is officially reissued for the first time ever after 36 years! What we have here is a cult Yugoslavian post punk album made by short-lived Luna, a band from Novi Sad that included members of Pekinška Patka. Mandatory! "During the late 1981, former Pekinška Patka members Zoran Bulatović "Bale" (guitar) and Marinko Vukomanović "Mare" (bass guitar) with former La Strada members Slobodan Tišma (vocals) and Ivan Fece "Firchie" (drums) joined together and formed LUNA. Since the band members were already well-known, the formation of the band caused great interest in the public. The band started writing new material, with Bulatović being responsible for the music writing, while Tišma was the band's lyricist. A few days before the band's first public appearance, Vukomanović had left the band, forming his own pop group Primavera, and was replaced by Jasmina Mitrušić "Mina" (keyboards, vocals). The first appearance the band made in March 1982, in Vienna Arena on the "Novosadski novi talas festival". After the festival, Luna started performing at numerous Novi Sad and Belgrade venues, establishing itself a cult status. In Radio Novi Sad studios, the band recorded their first demo, with "Ogledalo Lune" being the most notable track, becoming a local hit. Soon after, the band went on a Croatian and Slovenian tour during which, after the Kopar concert, the band met Marko Brecelj, a former Buldožer member, who took their demo recordings to his former band-mate Boris Bele, one of the head of the Helidon record label. Having returned from the tour, the band entered the Aquarius Studio in Belgrade, where, with the help of sound engineer Đorđe Petrović and producer Saša Habić recorded their debut album. However, by the time their first and only studio album, "Nestvarne stvari", had been released, on early 1984 by Helidon, due to a conflict between Bulatović and Tišma, the band had already disbanded. After the album release, the Rock magazine voted the album the seventh best album of the year 1984, and the band also got the award "Sedam Sektetara SKOJ-a" in Zagreb. Tišma and Mitrušić reformed La Strada, Bulatović went to serve the Yugoslav People's Army and Fece joined Ekatarina Velika and later moved to the United States. Together with Bulatović, former Električni Orgazam keyboard player Ljubomir Đukić and Igra Staklenih Perli bassist Draško Nikodijević "Dracula" he formed a supergroup "Collateral Damage", but the band did not release any material. Meanwhile, Fece was also the member of Jakarta, which disbanded in 1986. Mitrušić finished the Musical Academy studies and moved to Italy. After La Strada disbanded, Tišma quit his musical career and released two poetry books." (Šareni Dućan Records /Blind Dog Records Records)

    Mižerija's demo struck us with its rebellious attitude, infectious melancholic vibes and heavy pop sensibilities. On first listen, the band evokes some early BOYE/KAOS demos, but it's charged with both a strong punk attitude and a breeze of modern dark pop/post punk freshness. If you like the melancholic and catchy sides of UK anarcho punk and ex-YU post-punk/new-wave, we suggest that you do not sleep on Mižerija. There are some noisy moments here that recall the "Yes Sir I Will" CRASS era, there's a Honey Bane style shouted femme vocal thing going on and there are also some danceable aspects in the rhythm, which we totally adore! This is anarcho-pop wrapped up in barbed wire and updated for the new dark ages! Take notice that on this vinyl demo pressing you also get to hear one extra song from the same recording session. Limited to 524 copies. 420 on black and 104 limited baby blue color available for mailorder only. Each record comes with screenprinted cover, risographed insert and xeroxed lyrics sheet with english translation. Front cover: Niđo, Layout: Bodež. (Doomtown Records)
  • "1983…: as Yugoslavia was slowly losing vital functions, its underground youth was never more creative and angry.” Official reissue of this mythological split release originally published as a ltd. edition tape in 1983 on the cult label Galerija ŠKUC Izdaja (Laibach, Borghesia, Otroci Socializma etc.).. now for the first time on vinyl!! Two bands from the incredibly vital post-punk scene of Rijeka, one of the most intense and vital spots in the ‘80s ex-Yugoslavian underground. This release shows the slow and gloomy embryonic phase of Grč, currently celebrating their 40th year anniversary, paired with Mrtvi Kanal’s sensibilities on writing great melancholic, pop-infused post punk excellence. In the years to follow Grč consolidated their sinister fame with the incredible masterpiece “Sloboda narodu” (1987) – also reissued by FOAD years ago, one of the blackest and most hopeless expressions of negativity that whatever you may label as Dark, Death Rock or Post Punk has ever conceived… while Mrtvi Kanal recorded only a dozen of songs (the most included on this split) before they vanished in the mid 80ies. With a bitter approach towards themselves and the outside world, both bands captured the very essence of their contemporary times through the epic 12 songs included on this record, talking about freedom, desperation, hope and disappointment. Taken from the original reels and mastered for vinyl at Toxic Basement Studio. Includes a 12 page booklet with rare photos, flyers and scans of the 1983 tape. Made thanks to the friendly assistance of Dallas Records (Slovenia) and archival/editorial supervision from Guranje s litice (Croatia). Solid black vinyl limited to 350 copies (F.O.A.D. Records)

    'Legendary Paraf's "Flags" album (1984) on vinyl again! Special edition on the 35th anniversary, with original production and additional bonus track 'Throwers'!. Paraf was a punk rock and later post-punk band from Rijeka, (Yugoslavia, now Croatia) known as one of the pioneers of punk rock in the former Yugoslavia. Their third album Zastave (Flags), released in 1984, was produced by the band themselves with Borghesia member Aldo Ivančić. Inspired by Miroslav Krleža's multi-volume novel of the same name, the album featured lyrical themes related to the recent European political history. Most of the album featured somewhat obscure thematic references and occasionally absurd lyrics set to sparse, post-punk-influenced melodies such as the Gang of Four-like "Kad se oglasi" ("When the [Trumpet] Sounds") or Wire-influenced "Zastave". In other songs, such as the ethereal "Oj ponose moj" ("Oh, my Pride") and the bizarre collage "Zlatno Doba" ("Golden Age"), Paraf explored interesting and fresh approaches to both songwriting and production. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the album was largely ignored by the mainstream audiences. (Dallas Records)
  • 40th anniversary Paraf debut and the most important Croatian punk album all the time. In the spirit of the original release of "a dan je tako lijepo počeo" (And the day started so nicely), Dallas Records presents a new special edition of the first album by the punk band Paraf. It is a key album of the Yugoslav and one of the key albums of the continental European punk scene. This most important Croatian punk album was released on June 5, 1980, and flashed the first lineup of Parafov into the anthology of local and European punk subculture, as well as into the annals of regional pop culture. A special edition of the original mix mix brings four bonus tracks "Rijeka" and "Moj život je novi val" from their live album, released in 1979, a single version of "Narodne pjesme" from the compilation New Punk Wave 78-80 and a performance of the cult song "Goli otok" from live performance in 1979 in Pula. The band debut album A dan je tako lijepo počeo... (And The Day Started Out So Nicely...) was released by ZKP RTLJ in the Spring of 1980. Due to provocative lyrics, the album was classified as kitsch product, and thus liable to additional taxation, despite subsequent changes to some of the lyrics as well as the selection of a different album cover. In line with the punk rock ideology, the band addressed several topics which were at the time new to the Yugoslav rock: the songs featured ironic usages of communist slogans, mocked, at the time, one of the most popular bands, Bijelo Dugme, in the song "Pritanga i vaza", insulting the police in the censored version of "Narodna pjesma", and dealt with social themes typical for a port city. The album was produced by the band's close associate Goran Lisica "Fox", assisted by Igor Vidmar. Even 40 years later, the album “And the day started so beautifully” sounds strong, destructive, dangerous, daring and fresh. Valter Kocijančić, Zdravko Čabrijan and Dušan Ladavac Pjer successfully combined initial punk simplicity with relentless juvenile rebellion against boring everyday life in 14 songs released on the album. That’s why this album sounds so strong today. As Igor Vidmar, one of the producers of the album, said: “The initials were an anticipation of the coming crisis, in the sense of a precursor to social disappointment and the efforts of socially subordinate classes to express their individuality in any way. ” The original press release that accompanied the album reads: “The initials sing about a street that can be ridiculous and humorous, about the difficult and torturous street of teenage doubts, passions, separate mythologies and one's own perspective… so this album brings irony, ridicule, madness and free access to the taboos of the average petty-bourgeois everyday life. Until then, almost unimaginable in Yugoslav popular music, such an approach provided Paraf with an undeniable cultural pedestal. ” ‘The initials predicted that there would be a breakdown of the system that had been maintained on army and militia apparatus after Tito’s death. They shattered social illusions about the eternity of this system, in the form of punk, which at first they didn’t even know what it sounded like, but they sensed it had to be easy, fast, daring, provocative and loud ’. Aleksandar Dragash 'The Great Castle, the National Song and its sarcastically murderous refrain' There is no one better than our police 'or the equally destructive Long Live Yugoslavia, whose whole text is composed of political slogans and ideological' great truths', still holds water today as well as striking language singles Sex of the Pistols who provoked anarchy in Britain and celebrated the Queen or the call of the Clashes for a white uprising." ‘If Paraf were just the first punk rock band in Croatia, that would be more than enough, let alone the fact that after the first album they left behind three punk rock anthems for all time in this area. The first album "A dan je tako lepo pocelo" is measured by all punk rock dimensions and today the best album of the Croats. ' (Dallas Records)

    Originally released in 1981 and never officially reissued on vinyl since then. "Belgrade-based SARLO AKROBATA (according to some sources, this name "Charles the Acrobat" was used in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia of the 1930s as a popular nickname for Charlie Chaplin) definitely deserves the status of a "cult" group of the former Yugoslav rock scene. Born out of the post-punk musical and art revolution in the early 1980s and riding briefly on the ska-revival tide that helped them score several popular hits like "Ona se budi" and "Niko kao ja" topping the charts, they pursued more experimental direction on their one and only LP record." "This is one of most important albums in ex-Yugoslavia music history. Energy of young people with strong music ideas of punk, prog rock, avantgarde music and earlier Yugoslav hard and jazz rock bands made some unbelievable coctail which was totally organic and authetic in its own mix. Analogue studio manipulations had some nicely bland which is like a miracle nowadays in digital era. Like every eternal album in the music history this one is more actual as times goes by. Pure energy, even you don't like weird sound! Not perfect album but true masterpiece for every music lover (in fact one of the best post punk albums i ever heard)!!! In one word, corner-stone!!!"

    Although Sukob (Conflict) is a relatively new band, some of their members were involved in a bunch of local hardcore punk and anarcho punk acts for longer than two decades. "Tvoje Misli Su Nečija Umjetnost" (Your Thoughts Are Someone's Art) is their debut mini-album filled with ten honest, raging and uncompromising gems inspired by living in this part of the world. Musically we could place them somewhere along the spectrum of early sharp & punishing Pig Champion's rapid fire riffage and fist-pumping Scandinavian hardcore with hints of Celtic Frost-ish midtempo drives. When you spice that up with unique desperate & pissed off vocals you'll got a hell of a fresh sounding raw hardcore punk record! Turn this one up loud! Recorded, mixed and mastered by Ivan Jakić.

Unlike a lot of barrel scraping discographies, all the material on here is top notch, even the demo and out take stuff. Really raw and aggro hardcore, sounds like a perfect mix of Discharge and Wretched. Totally excellent. (Rest In Punk Records)

    * A unique compilation of Electronic, Minimal, Synth, Wave and Avantgarde music from ex-Yugoslavia * Two double LPs with over 150 minutes and 47 songs from 1964-1989 - This here is PART 1 now, the second part will be released in 2023 * Earlier released on CD in 2014 by Croatia Records, ex Jugoton * Restored from the original master tapes by the veteran archive diggers Višeslav Laboš and Zeljko Luketić The galloping technical progress in the second half of the last century dominated all spheres of daily life, art and culture. In the music industry machines took over the role of classical instruments and did not stop at RnR, punk nor industrial music. No one could resist the challenge, but also the prevailing trends in the 80s. The music industry was influenced by the electronic virus globally, not sparing even the remotest corners of the planet, producing bands like Depeche Mode, New Order, Soft Cell or lesser known ones like Liquid Liquid, Section 25, The Wake as well as the pioneers of the electronic music Silver Apples, Pierre Henry,etc . What was going on in the music industry of former Yugoslavia and at Jugoton, the biggest YU music label at that time? The all over answer is given by a new release of Everland Music: Electronic Jugoton - Synthetic music from Yugoslavia 1964. - 1989. Vol. 1 Electronic Jugoton is the first part of two double albums, where the second part will even go back to pre-electronic music from 1964. Both double albums were initially released by Croatia Records (ex-Jugoton) in 2014 on a 2CD set with no less than two and a half hours of material (47 songs, 35 performers), showing the contemporary trend of Jugoton at that time towards avant-garde and provocative directions in electronic music. This untimely compilation is released for the first time on vinyl now on two double LPs, housed in gatefold sleeves by Everland Music, where part 2 will be released in 2023. The brave and insightful creators of the compilation Electronic Jugoton, veteran crate diggers Višeslav Laboš and Zeljko Luketić, have excelled at reconstructing the musical past of electronic music in Yugoslavia from 1964 – 1989. Jugoton's extensive research included the most exciting and progressive moments of pop and disco music, early rap, electronic responses of new wave, RnR, post punk and industrial bands to the current trend of the 80s, but also pioneers of avant-garde electronic music. Electronic Jugoton part 1 is officially opened by the band Laboratorija with the song Devica 69, which opens a window to a completely new and experimental world in former Yugoslavia.Laboš and Luketić have boldly chosen the material without reservations, suggesting that for the first time in one place we have a section of forgotten, unique underground bands like Beograd, Data, Brazil, The Master Scratch band, DU DU A and beyond. Besides the excellent underground bands, we find popular performers of the time performing less well-known songs: Denis & Denis, Oliver Mandić, Slađana & Neutral Design. Electronic Jugoton part 2 is partly dedicated to unique electronic music in the performance of important Yugoslav punk, new wave, RnR and industrial bands: Zana, Pekinška patka, Električni orgazam and Borghesia, while the second part of the material is focused on avant-garde early electronic music in Yugoslavia, where the works of composers Igor Savin, Branimir Sakac, Igor Kuljerić and Miroslav Miletić were presented. Luketić and Laboš rescued the obscure electronic tune Elektra by Zdenka Kovačiček, who was at that time Jugoslovska Soul and funk diva. The uniqueness and quality of this compilation are also audio stories for children, which were extremely fertile ground for an experimentation with electronic sounds, as they should be highly imaginative to attract the attention of the childrens. Electronic Jugoton is also the first compilation in which the listener will find fragments of interviews with actors from the time gave for Jugoton Express. This was a series of promo vinyls printed in extremely small quantities in the 80's and intended to be exclusively for radio stations. An average of 30 minutes of promotion material and interviews with musicians were available for the first time through this compilation. The value of this compilation is time and priceless. The only question is whether you will be fast enough to catch your copy of the limited double vinyl editions! A1. Laboratorija - Jugoton Express A2. Laboratorija-Devica 69 A3. D'Boys - Žaba A4.

  • A decade of Non-Aligned beats, soul, disco and jazz 1969-1979. - First ever beats, breaks and rare grooves compilation from ex Yugoslavia - Eastern European diggers delight - Remastered straight from the vaults of Jugoton - Raw funk, psych, prog rock, orchestral disco, big band jazz funk and more... Yugoslavia - six republics, four decades, one dictator and a single record label that ruled them all: Jugoton (Zagreb, Croatia). Jugoton was by far the country's largest label with the strongest and most diverse output that stretched from Balkan roots to contemporary trends and the sound of tomorrow . The early days of Yugoslavia featured strong censorship but by the end of the 60's the Communist party views softened up by a large degree. Westernized music already had a solid presence and first James Brown influenced compositions were released. Yugo funk, a term coined by DJ’s and crate diggers from the Balkans, encompasses a wide variety of performers and genres: from the 60's merseybeat rock bands, prog rock groovers and big band jazz orchestras to the late 70's sophisticated 4x4 funk and essentially everything in between. Jugoton Funk Vol.1, a first of its kind, celebrates the pioneer years of funk infused music released by Jugoton. While in pursuit of these treasures all over the Balkan region and beyond, the compilation’s selectors, Dr. Smeđi Šećer & Višeslav Laboš, both active as DJ's and crate diggers from the sole beginnings of the ex-Yu craze, wanted to capture the authentic and idiosyncratic funk sound of Jugoton and Yugoslavia. So here it is, comb your moustache, light up a fat one, turn up the amplifier and headbang away to these amazing tunes remastered from original master tapes dug out of the Jugoton vaults (now Croatia Records). Compiled by Dr. Smeđi Šećer & Višeslav Laboš. (Everland)
