052 (1987-1990, 2009-)


The band 052 (the telephone prefix for Pula!) is one of the veterans of the Pula scene. They played in the 80s then split-up and reunited in 2009 in a completely different line-up. They play Classic Rock, and besides the demo from 1988, a very important document of the history of the band, they made brand new recordings and continuing with active playing.

TRACELESS BANDS pt.3

Here is another post with pictures of four more bands that left no audible/visible trace but pictures, but have been a part of the Pula Rock scene in the past decades.

SICK WINE FLY (1987-1988)


PUSTENI S LANCA (1981)


RAK (1987)


PLAKATI (1979-1982)






TRIO PINO PAPILON BAND (1987)

Pino Ivancic

Trio Pino Papilon Band was a project that lived only briefly, planned for no live performances, and just one studio recording. Made completely by members of Gustaph Y Njegovi Dobri Duhovi, this project made a fine recording recorded in Koper, and planned to be released as mini-lp. Unfortunately, it never did, but it is a pleasure to have this stuff still available.
PS: Thank you Edi Maruzin for the info !!

ANTITODOR (1999)


Antitodor is one of the most popular croatian Punk Rock bands, born from the ashes od Antitodor I Talenti/Talenti, and fronted by the legendary Punk veteran Todor. The band, even with some line-up changes, lasted for more than a decade, and even now it is pretty unsure if they ever splitted (but there is no activity since 2011, and Todor is now singing with Punk Rock Maniacs). Todor is also known as a Stand-Up comedian.
PS : On October 19.10. they play in Cakovec, so it means that the band still exists.
