KUD IDIJOTI (part 2 - the EPs 1987-1996) (1981-2012)


KUD IDIJOTI were not only one of the greatest bands in the history of Pula`s Rock scene, but undoubtly one of the best Punk bands from this part of the world. Formed February 2nd 1982, the band spanned over three decades, changed the line-up just two times (not counting the pre-recordings years) and left a huge and important mark in the Rock music of the Balkans (and wider). Their opus is so huge that I will divide it into four parts: the demos/live cassettes, the EPs, the official releases and the bootlegs.
The part 2 includes four EPs released between 1987 and 1996. The first three were released for their first independent label Slovenija before the first album, and the last EP was self-released for Veruda Records, guitarist Sale`s label.
