The story of Rock`n`Roll made in Pula (and Istria)

This is a blog where you will find music from one of the richest rock-scene from Croatia, the city of PULA rock-scene.There will be some Istrian music too, as Istria is the region of Croatia to which Pula belongs to.You will find here how good and different was the Pula scene, with some of the bands recognised worldwide.

WELCOME TO PULA!

PS:All the infos about the bands are approximative, and will be changed with every useful info I get from the members of the bands!

PPS: Please notice that the NON-HIGHLIGHTED name of a certain release is a part of band`s audiography, but not available for download, for not having the permission or for respecting the authors rights. Or, of course, not yet in my possession.

Rest in peace...

This one is a kind of posts I would never like to post, but as we will all die, we have to face unpleasant realities too... In the last two months the Rock scene of Pula faced two departures of two somehow important musicians, so...

BRUNETTO SUBIOTTO
Singer in many croatian and slovenian bands, but we are remembering him as the first and best The Spoons vocalist

(1965-08.07.2016.)



+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MARIO "MARIETTO" DOBRIC
The first KUD Idijoti bassist/guitarist, also spiritus movens of the project Marietto + IRA



R.I.P. 23.08.2016.

May them both rest in peace.

KUD IDIJOTI (part 4) - BOOTLEGS (1989-1994)


So, we came now to the final part of the very rich KUD Idijoti`s audiography, the bootlegs. It is of course a part of their audiography that may be updated (even if Sale announced that there are some unreleased recordings Tusta made before his premature death).
Most of the bootlegs are from concerts played on their Euro tours.
I must thank the blog "I`ve made you a tape" for all these bootlegs, as well as for the pic up here.

MANIG (2000-??)


Manig is a drum`n`bass project started back in 2000,made of ex members of Dusty Miller and Dark Busters (not sure for this last one). They claim that it is hard to describe exactly their music, as they adapt their playing to the place where they play. The project released a CD album in 2001. They never officially split-up so it is hard also to define the lenght of their existence.

OLTAR (1997-1999)


Finally!, After more than four months or so, here I am back!! Let`s continue with bands from Pula, I will probably post few bands one after another in a brief period so check out them all!!

Oltar was a Rock band formed in 1997, from ex-Distorzija members. They played a lot of live shows and recorded a demo on a four-track recorder on May 22nd 1998. After a brief period of activity, they ended in 1999.

SCIKE (2007-)


Scike is a very original band that connects istrian traditional music with a lot of other musical styles, including Reggae, Jazz, Rock and even Heavy Metal. In this concept more than welcome is the use of traditional istrian instruments such as mih, sopile, bajs, triestine accordeon and others. They released a perfectly produced album in 2013, and continuing in creating exciting music.
The material given very kindly by the band itself. Thanks.

DIONIS (1986-1991)

Another band I really don`t remeber much about, except that they were very popular among the teeny girls in Pula by the end of the 80s. They played a kind of Pop Rock, very sloppy at the beginning, then a little better in the second demo. They disappeared silently, years later their vocalist died, and Dionis remained just a memory. There is a video performance from a guitar contest, I will put it here as soon as I rip it.

THINK (1993-1998)


THINK were one of the bands I put in the section "bands I have no info about", but the vocalist Danilo contacted me and I got a few more infos, so it is fair to separate them. I was promised that the pic will arrive soon, so this is hopefully a temporary image.

THINK were founded by the split-up of Confusione Totale caused by the (then) obligatory army service. So Danilo and the CT`s guitarist and drummer joined together and formed Think in 1993. Think played a lot of shows during their existence, they even played outside Croatia, and recorded two demos, of which only the second is available. The first demo was given only to close friends, so it is a rarity today. They finally split in 1998.


1st demo, 1994 (??)

Some bands I have no infos about...


Well, this is a kind of posts I really don`t like, because I want to give you at least the basic informations about every band, but these bands here are bands I know nothing about. If any member, friend or fan knows something about these band and give me informations about them, I will move them to a regular personal title/post.

All I know and if can help you, Bakhuz played some New Wave/Alternative stuff, and the other band was Punk/Hardcore.

FLANGER DANGER (2010-)


FLANGER DANGER was formed in 2010, by very talented veterans of the Pula Rock scene. The very next year they recorded their first demo tape, and in 2014 they entered the Partyzan Studio in Pula and recorded their first full lenght album. They play a kind of Alternative Metal, and if you ask me, they remind me of Soundgarden.. Try them yourself!


demo CD "Sedam i druge apokalipticne pjesmice" 2011
