Yugoslavian Rock Through the Ages.

Here’s the Yugoslavian band Električni Orgazam in 1981.

Pretty good, no? Kind of a darker take on the Talking Heads 77/Modern Lovers.

I learned about these guys, and a record company called Moonlee, that is dedicated to releasing new rock music from the former Yugoslav republics, from a Cuepoint survey of the scene.

The story ends with the story of Bernays Propaganda, a Croation band that is working these days sometimes with Mike Watt. Their tune Provekje is more indie than punk, but the story says their early stuff is angular, like Fugazi.

Another contemporary band, Serbian I think, is Replikator. This tune struggles to escape the murky bottom like that 90s mainstay Come.
