BIJELE STRIJELE - Izvorne snimke (1962-64)





































BIJELE STRIJELE was formed in 1961, in Zagreb, Croatia. In the beginning they played covers of Cliff Richard and The Shadows, The Beatles and later they made their own songs. They were one of the first bands in ex-Yugoslavia who had their own songs, and that made them very popular. Their EP record "Svi trče oko Sue" was the first beat record released in ex-Yugoslavia. They split in 1966 because they couldn't adapt to new changes in music which came together with long hair bands. The style of Bijele strijele was mix of beat with early rock'n'roll and twist. Their sound was raw with great teenage vocals. They had two guitar players and two singers, and of course bass and drums. And that made their sound a bit different from their english and american idols. (from wanadoo.nl)
