BULEVAR history dates from the days of the group Tilt consisting of young highschool attendants Dejan Cukić (vocals), Nenad Stamatović (guitar), Dušan Bezuha (guitar), Miroslav Cvetković (bass) and drummers at different times, Vlada Golubović and Predrag Jakovljević. The band sometimes also performed with rock veteran Branko Marušić "Čutura" (guitar, vocals). Following the departures of Bezuha, Golubović, who went to Suncokret, and Cvetković, who went to Pop Mašina, the band ceased to exist. Stamatović, who was in the band Zebra, along with Cukić, Jakovljević and Suncokret bassist Branko Isaković, formed Bulevar in 1978. The band got the name Bulevar because all of the members lived near The Boulevard Of Revolution in Beograd. During the following year, the band had their first live appearances as an opening act for Riblja Čorba. Their first major appearance was at the Tašmajdan Stadium on September 1, 1979 at the famous Riblja Čorba concert. After the band Zvuk ulice disbanded, their keyboard player, Dragan Mitrić joined the band. The lineup began working on their new songs and, with the help of Riblja Čorba guitarist Momčilo Bajagić, the band recorded their first single "Moje bezvezne stvari". However, due to the illness of Josip Broz Tito, the band released their first single in 1980 through Jugoton. The release of their second single, "Nestašni dečaci" was described by Cukić as "the inauguration of symphonic punk" because the band combined punk music with arrangements of Mitrić, who was then studying composition at the Music Academy. "Nestašni dečaci" was also featured on a various artists compilation "Svi marš na ples!", a cult New Wave Jugoton compilation. The song caused a slight incident as the authorities considered the song the direct support of the March 1981 protests in Kosovo, which was not true. By the time the band was about to release their debut album "Loš i mlad", they signed for PGP-RTB. The album was released in 1981, and was produced by themselves with the help of Tahir Durhalić. When the band released their second album, "Mala noćna panika", featuring the notable tracks "Unutarnja panika" and "Trenutni lek", Mitrić, Stamatović and Cukić went to serve the army so the record did not have a live presentation. The only appearance the band made was at the Beograd Dok, where Kornelije Kovač, who produced the record, played keyboards. The band held their last concert in Skopje in 1982, where Stamatović appeared as a soldier, and after the performance, the band disbanded. (from wikipedia)

DRAGO MLINAREC was one of the most prolific singer/songwriters in the former Yugoslavia and the leader of the renowned beatsters Grupa 220, the first ex-YU rock band that managed to record an LP album back in 1968 in Zagreb, Croatia. Upon the break-up of the group's first line-up in 1970, Mlinarec gathered a new Grupa 220 band with the musicians: Husein Hasanefendić, Ivan Piko Stančić, Nenad Zubak and Brane Živković. He planned a new Grupa 220 album, but instead decided to issue it under his solo name, "A ti se ne daj" in 1971. That album marked the beginning of his solo career and the following year saw the release of "Pjesme s planine", critically acclaimed LP with Zubak and Stančić of Grupa 220 as rhythm section. The third album "Rođenje" in 1975 introduced keyboard player Neven Frangeš with whom Mlinarec was about to collaborate until 1978, recording two more albums. During 1970s Mlinarec also appeared at many rock festivals including famous "Boom pop festival" in Ljubljana 1972 and 1973, and was engaged in composing music for several theatre plays, TV shows, documentary and feature films. From 1979 till 1983 he recorded three albums in Sweden with producer/multiinstrumentalist Tinnie Varga, while during the 1980s he collaborated with Zagreb-based New Wave bands Azra and Le Cinema. Around 1987 Mlinarec moved to the Croatian countryside, where he lived away from publicity until 1994 when he recorded an ambient-experimental cassette tape "Analog" with Aldo Ivančić. The CD retrospective "Krhotine" appeared in 1996, which presented a recap of his entire career. In 1997 Mlinarec won Croatian music honorary award "Porin" for life accomplishment in music. Mlinarec's first four albums ("A ti se ne daj", "Pjesme s planine", "Rođenje" and "Negdje postoji netko") are usually regarded to be the best; there he explored diverse musical interests, crossing over between acid-tinged jam proto-prog rock with long compositions featuring guitar, organ and flute solos, and more mellow acoustic and electric folk rock with progressive and sometimes psychedelic or "classical" feeling. On one hand it resembles Traffic or CSN&Y, on the other "Meddle"-era Pink Floyd. Recommended to fans of folk-rock, progressive folk and acoustic guitars with melodic but sometimes extended songs, with psyche moments. (progarchives.com)

SANJALICE were one of, probably not many, girl bands in ex-Yugoslavia and probably the only girl band that released a record at that time. Sanjalice was formed in Beograd, Serbia, in 1965. Their records are not that wild, but song "Bez reči" is one the best girl 60s punk songs. They split in 1969.
