LOGARITMI (1963-1967) / BEATSTONES (1967-1972)

LOGARITMI (1963-1967)

One of the very first rock bands in Pula was a band that, accidentally, was formed by my father, Dominik Dinko Bijazic, and was called LOGARITMI. Actually, they were a cover band all the time, they never wrote their own song, but anyway Rock`n`Roll entered the city of Pula. Initially, they played covers of instrumental bands such as The Shadows and The Ventures, to pass to vocal containing songs by Beatles and Rolling Stones to name a few. An interesting fact is that in Logaritmi, two members of the most popular band from Pula ever, Atomsko Skloniste, started their musical carreers; Bruno Langer and Sasa Dadic (respectively later bassist and drummer, the rhythm section of the first Atomsko Skloniste line-up from 1975 to 1980). As the technical possibilities in Pula at the time were almost zero, there is NO AUDIO OR VIDEO RECORDING whatsoever of Logaritmi. All the pictures here are my father`s private collection. All the pictures are made around 1966.

BEATSTONES (1967-1972)

BEATSTONES was the follow-up to Logaritmi, just before the band transferred to Italy, where they will remain and play until early 1972. There was a slight line-up change as not all of them were ready or willing to leave Pula. As my father told to me, there was a 1 COPY vinyl made of one of their live shows played in Italy, and it supposedly remained in Italy, as Emmerich Horn, decided not to come back to Pula. I tried to search the guy, but completely without any possible success.
