Rolling Suicide - Loosing Yourself (2006.)

Rolling Suicide was hardcore metal/punk band with elements of nu-metal, that was active from 2004, 'until (their) dawn' in 2008. Band was formed by 4 young teenagers when they were only about 14 years old, and at first, they were playing covers from Black Sabbath, Blink 182, etc., and later, because of their big interest in metal music, they started to play some their combination of everything that they liked, that can be described something as - music is combination of early NYHC, than Black Sabbath, Korn and skate punk, with dark poet lyrics and very clear vocals by their front-man Kova. If you consider that they were only about 16 years old when they recorded this demo, you'll hear that their playing is like they were playing for very longer time, than 2 years, as they were playing back than. The band after they released this demo in November 2006., had a couple of gig's in Zagreb and one in Osijek (Croatia), under the name Hidden Theory and later, after that, they kicked Dragec from the band in early 2008., because he was too messy to continue to work with band at that time, and instead of Suma (their former rhythm guitarist) that also went out at that time) and Dragec -came Karuro and Daroo from Abergaz (to play also in that band), and then on vocals came Darko Latinović - Darac, and than they were playing in shortly-lived band, under the name 'Until the dawn' and recorded single, again in ZG-Zvuk studio in Zagreb, that was called Betrayed, and that is still availble to listen here - http://www.myspace.com/untilthedawn - but after all that, Karuro and Daroo left the band, and everything went 'to dawn' with that project and that story is on hiatus since 2009. What I am bringing you today, is their only release, that they had released ever and under the name Rolling Suicide. Interesting thing about this CD, beside that, that I found it again after many years, this night accidentally on my shelf, while I was searching for some old cartoons on VHS, to heal my insomnia (nevermind...) - is that on this CD, I had to 'roll down' the DIY sticker on it, so that can my DVD-reader on my PC can actually - roll and read this CD, because how sticker is now old and warped - it was getting stuck in DVD-reader, when it tried to roll it. Of course that I got everything photographed with my mobile phone and that pictures are inside download package, together with songs and everything else. :) Anyway, when they recorded this demo in ZG-Zvuk (Zagreb), they were in this, original, line-up:

Marko Kovačević (Kova) -Lead Guitar & Vocals
Marko Sumrak (Soom) -Rhythm Guitar
Danijel Antolović (Danchy) - Bass Guitar
Mario Dragičević (Dragec) - Drums

Yeah, one more thing. On CD cover is accidentally (I think) misspelled word 'Loosing' - just to notice that. Download link, and track list, as usual - is below. This stuff is very rare, so feel free to 'spread the word', if you like it. Cheers and beers!!

Track list:
1. - Loosing Myself
2. - Dis-function In Function (D.I.F.)
3. - Heroine (It is not about drugs, it's about female-hero)
4. - Where am I

LJENA ĐUBRAD - S/T (2005.)

Ljena Đubrad (Eng. - Lazy Mucks) is punk rock band from Požega, Croatia, that Mata gather up in 2004. (i think) after his first band called Anti-Talents ceased to act. This band is mix of minimalistic punk-rock melodies, youth vocals and direct straight-forward lyrics. To me, their most interesting song lyrics are from their song called "Čovijek"(Eng. - "Human"). Even at this song music kinda sucks, at least to me, lyrics are pretty interesting. This is the rough translation to English language of that lyrics:

What does mean to be humane?/ Humane doesn't mean to be good/ Humane means to be human/ And human is biggest evil/ Wars, murdering/ Suffering, greed/ Hatred, condemning/ that are the marks of human/ Look around yourself/ Everything is based on the interests/ He exploits and kills, if he need/ So that he can have a lot of money

Even I don't agree with using of word 'humane', because I am aware that it means doing something for better living of mankind, I found this point of view very interesting. Anyway, track-list and download link is below. Whole booklet and cd pictures are also included inside. Thanks to Dundo and Mata for forwarding the CD! Cheers everyone!

Track list:
1. - Vojnička (Military song)
2. - Čovjek (Human)
3. - Boring
4. - Pank (Punk)
5. - Rebel
6. - Hate
7. - Ne (No!)

Okay, today is Christmas Eve and now I am gonna write about these two pop-punk bands from Zagreb, Croatia, that published together two Christmas singles. Don't worry, here are not any religious bullshits. ;) Mašinko (Eng. - Machinky) & Fraktura Mozga (Eng. - Fractures of the Brain) recorded and made this CD only few days before Christmas, and even the songs are full of Christmas spirit, they are not the ones that you can hear on the radio now-days. Song from band Mašinko is named (translated) 'Merry Christmas (it will be better)' and in this song they are basically trying to encourage people in their own way to not give up in trying to achieve love and happiness, but song from band Fraktura Mozga called (translated) "It is Christmas..." is hilarious. :) I mean, when the first sentence of the song is (translated):"It is Christmas, fuck you and your greeting cards", than you know that something funny is inside. :D In this song they are saying to (imaginary or real?) girl to fuck off because she left him because she found someone else. And later on song 'he' is describing how the time is passing by, and that he feels so miserably that he can't even delete her from Facebook (LOL :D), and even that he already bought present to her, that he will not give it to her, because he wishes all the misery that she gave him. Interesting theme for Christmas single. :) Anyway, inside download package, are also pictures of booklet and CD and of course - music. ;) Download link is below. Cheers and I wish you all the best!

If you are type of human or extraterrestrial that is only interested in HI-FI production music, than you can go away from this post. Why? Because today, we are talking about band called Anti-Talents that is coming from Požega, Croatia. What is their story? Okay, I am gonna translate, what they did wrote inside booklet, that is of course also included inside download link. It says something like this:

Band was formed as a project in year 2000, when they was playing in line-up: Mata, Kara, Galić & Papak under the name 'Without Talents'. Later, Mata left the band and formed Anti-Talents, where were playing Mata, Boki, Darac & Totar. Then they had a couple of concerts and recorded first demo (that is not published). After the Totar left the band, Karača came instead. Then they had a couple of concerts in Požega & Gradiška and recorded few cassettes and than decided to publish this noise.

This band was formed when they were only about 13 or 14 years old. In A side of cassette you can hear their first phase of band when nobody of them really didn't know how to play and also "squeaky" bass pedal on drums, and bass guitar completely out of tune - but - for some reason, to me - this sound so fucking awesome! Even the recordings are made in 21st century, songs on A side are so full of that nihilistic '77 spirit. From this recording, you can really hear that they really don't give a damn thing about properly playing and that they only wanna express what is in their heads - and have fun at the same time of course. To me, most interesting song from that A side is song called - "963-R". The song is about undercover police patrol car, that was roaming on the streets of Požega, and hunting for everyone that looked suspicious - and that "963-R" are the last letters and digits from their registration plate. :D These are the lyrics of that song and my sloppy translation into English language:

tip je iz auta izašo (the guy went outside of car)
izgledao je jako sumnjivo (he looked very suspicious)
na uglu ulice je šetao (on the corner of the street, he was walking)
i nešto je promatrao (and had something observing)

neki klinac je potrčo (some kid, started running)
on je za njim krenuo (he started to follow him)
klinac se potepo (kid fell of)
963-r ga je pokupio (963-R picked him)

963-r voza se po gradu (963-R is driving around town)
najružniji auto u gradu (the ugliest car in the town)
svi su te skužili (everybody now know you)
možeš odjebati (you can fuck off)

The second thing about that song that is interesting to me, is that one night police officers from other undercover patrol car in Požega while they were searching 'suspicious stuff' in their pockets and that they have found the lyrics of that songs. Cop asked Mata (vox/guitar) something in style (and on Croatian of course):"Ok... What is this crap?" and Mata answered:"Song lyrics... You know - like words." :D Cop was absolutely shocked. HAhahahahahhaha :D And remember - they were only 13 or 14 years old. Because of all that, I think that this song is definitely one of the best songs in punk music history about police. Anyway, on B side of the tape is their second phase, where are still mostly same songs, but in much more hardcore/'crusty' versions. Maybe you will like it more than on A side of tape, but I personally prefer A side. My opinion - who cares anyway. ;) Other facts on this tape are that on all songs from A side and on first ten songs on B side is Dario/Darac (he is in Abergaz playing now-days (yeah, world is little place)) is playing drums and on other songs was playing drums, the guy called - Neno. Other interesting fact is, that all songs were recorded on cheap tape-recorder in their rehearsal room, and also that their song 'On radi' ('He is working') was covered by Mata's today's band where he is playing - that is called - Nonsense. For their release click here. Complete tape booklet and 'how-the-tape-looks' pictures, are included inside of download package. Many thanks to Mata for borrowing this VERY RARE tape to me! Cheers and beers everyone - download link is below as usual! Cheers!

ABERGAZ - PEČINAR (single 2010.)

Okay, I am gonna try to write about this, from third-person view. Why? For fun! :D Hahaha. :) Okay -  Abergaz is a punk band from Zagreb, Croatia, that is active from March 7th, 2006. This is their DIY single that they made on November 2010. The song is called 'Pečinar' (grammatical mistake on original title has been made on purpose). Translated into English language, the title of song is 'Caveman'. About what is this song? Download and listen - booklet & lyrics translations to English language, are also included inside. Also, 90% of cover is handcrafted - but I think that everything is 'readable'. ;) This single will be also released in 'solid' format, but for now, it is only available in this way, because they need to gather money to make solid release. This song is free to share, with condition, to name all artist contributions. Enjoy & cheers!
