DOKUMENT Sretno Dijete (Gerila DV Film ; Grlić, Rajko, 2003)


Juhoslovanská nezávislá scéna.

In this documentary, Igor Mirković, originally a news reporter, portrays the emergence of the independent, vibrant new wave punk-rock musical scene in Zagreb, ex-Yugoslavia, emerging at the end of the 1970s and the beginning of the 1980s. Most of the documentary consists of his interviews with Zagreb rock singers and other important actors on the scene as well as with some of their Belgrade counterparts. With plenty of original musical and archival images from the period, the film makes no claim to objectivity, but is rather a monument to the generation that grew up in the belief that rock’n’roll is larger than life. The story is narrated from the perspective of an outsider since the author was just a teenager when the scene exploded and is concerned with illustrating the life-long influence of rock-music on his way of life. Through Zagreb, Ljubljana, Vienna, Belgrade, Budapest, Paris, Utrecht and New York, the author thus finds himself in pursuit of the heroes of his youth. Mirković also implicitly tried to interconnect his rock story with the fall of socialism: he provides a historical background by bringing in important political moments of the period such as the death of Tito or the evolving economic crisis.

Icecross (Iceland, 1973)

ICECROSS - Islandský 70´s hard-rock/psych-rock.


Copenhagen in the autumn of 1972, the crucible for Icelandic hippies, where the Free State of Kristiania held the promise of a better world where everyone was equal, providing according to available resources, partaking as needed. We celebrated the one year anniversary of Kristiania gathered around a great bonfire and promised to turn the Free State into a model of cooperation, togetherness and solidarity a sort of primal Christianity.

The club Revolution in Copenhagen was the place to listen to live music, all the latest and freshest. Usually it was rather bland stuff, I found, but the there appeared this amazing rock band, so amazing that we were left gaping and staring Icecross hard as nails and supertight. When the boys had finished playing they mingled with the audience, having a beer or perhaps lighting up a pipe. It turned out they were Icelanders living in Kristiania with big dreams - fully justified judging from their performance that night.

For several reasons Icecross never made it. My understanding was that they got tired of the struggle abroad and wanted to go back home. They did, however manage to cut a record bearing the name of the group. A superb record I listened to a lot, until it gave way to newer music lying in the stack but enjoying short-lived revivals off and on over the next few years until it suffered the inevitable fate: too scratched and contaminated with booze to be playable.

Decades later, searching for old music, I started to come accross the record here and there on collectors' lists and for no small change - one wanted to buy it for $200 and another to sell it for $500. People were starting to talk about “the legendary and mysterious Icecross” but there were far fewer sellers than potential buyers.

As time went more and more copies started cropping up and further investigation revealed that the record had been reissued in various places. One owner offered for sale a record which had been published in Holland, another had a copy from Italy, and suddenlty someone was advertising a CD made in Korea. Everything strictly illegal but showing the widespread call for this marvelllous recording.

The Internet revitalized the sale of Icecross. At the time of this writing, a simple Google search reveals at least five different bootleg publishers which bears witness to the place accorded to Icecross in the history of rock music.

Dvouletá fáma v Junior klubu Na Chmelnici (20. listopadu 1982)


DVOULETÁ FÁMA - naživo na Chmelnici (1982)

1981-1984 :::: Dvouletá fáma (I.)

Hudební skupina působící začátkem 80. let, alternativní bigbít ve stylu nové vlny: Jana Macháčková - zpěv; Martin Vik - kytara; Ivan Benda - baskytara; Zdeněk Konopásek - bicí, zpěv.

Moje první pražská kapela. Koncerty jsme měli hlavně v Praze na Chmelnici, tu a tam mimo Prahu. Poslouchali jsme a milovali např. The Residents a Snakefingera, XTC, B52s, Public Image Ltd a další - a tak nějak se to všechno propojilo dohromady. Dvouletá fáma působila v téhle sestavě v letech 1981-84. Pak se opět sešla v poněkud hrubší podobě a obměněné sestavě v letech 1987-1990 (Dvouletá fáma II.).

1981-1984 :::: Dvouletá fáma [Two-year rumour] (I.)

New wave band of early 80s: Jana Macháčková - vocals; Martin Vik - guitar; Ivan Benda - bass; Zdeněk Konopásek - drums, vocals.

My first band in Prague. We played concerts mainly at the legendary Chmelnice club in Prague, occasionally elsewhere. Our favorite bands of the time were, for instance, The Residents and Snakefinger, XTC, B52s, Public Image Ltd - and all this somehow melted together in our music. Several years after this lineup splitted up, in late 1980s, the band was reformed and got darker and rougher - Dvouletá fáma II.).

This is a "remastered" and edited original live recording of Dvouletá fáma from 1982 (November 20). It was one of its first public appearances ever and the first concert at the Junior Klub Na Chmelnici in Prague. In its first half, the concert had originally included four completely improvised pieces (cca 17 minutes in total), which were dropped out for this edition. Most of the songs, but not all of them, appeared in "studio" versions on a compilation double CD released by the BlackPoint label in 2001 [BP-0012-2]. The sound of the live show was polished and edited for this edition in 2021 by Milan Voříšek (who had attended in person the concert in 1982).

Suns - М​о​ј​о​т С​о​н Е С​а​м​о М​о​ј (1994)


SUNS - macedónski crossover-HC/punk-rockeri.


The SunS trio, Gjokica Zafirovski - vocals and guitar, Sasa Pavlovic - bass and Andrej Anastasov - drums, spontaneously established year 1991, after few fortune and unfortunate musicians and art types tried to share their energies and ideas, mashed the words, guitars and rhythms to translate their word and thought about their surrounding, fears, hopes, highs and depths of the urban life, collapsed communist societies and systems, cosmopolitan and globalism influences, loneliness and love - in songs about the contemporary Macedonia.
