PUNKART - PUNKART (1998.)


First, I am not gonna say sorry for not posting anything in almost 2 months - because I was really busy with my jobs, bands and with rioting on streets, so if you can't understand that - go fuck yourself you ignorant fuck. Enough with that - today I am bringing you something very rare and I would like to say thanks to friend called Darijan from Tuzla (BiH) that I met at S.A.W.A festival in Županja last year - thank you for forwarding me this great music! Band is called Punkart and they are from city called Tuzla in Bosnia and Herzegovina. They started playing when punk & rock scene in Tuzla was practically dead and forgotten at the same time. When everything was still deep in ashes of goddamn ex-yugoslavian war. Sound on this their first home made demo (that I am bringing you today) is so fuckin' raw but yet kinda melodic - and all that is mixed with very frustrated and angry vocals from their singer Haris. Imagine 'gray' anger that is trying to make a sparkle kicking rock to another rock, while trying to light the fire of living in city that is practically dead - that is how can I describe their music and often auto-ironical lyrics on this first release of them. Band had a couple of break-ups but it is still playing in slightly different line-up, but I am sure that Haris, their frontman, is in band from beginning (and probably to their end). Today they got soften and I don't know... Yeah, today they are good, but this release IS SO FUCKING GREAT!! - That is the difference. I booked them a gig in a Zagreb, a couple of weeks ago, they were good live, but somehow I missed this anger from their first release. Personally, I like the most, their song called "Let" (Eng. "Flying"), were lyrics are saying this. Yes, I will translate them to drunken English language. :) Here they are:

Stojim na vratima i svega se bojim (I am standing on door, scared of everything)
Nikako ne mogu shvatit zašto zvijezde brojim (By no means I can't get it - why am I counting stars)
Da nisam poludio ja znam (I am not insane - I know!)
A šta drugi o meni misle ja ne znam (What are other thinking - I don't know)

Nisam mogo, da se sjetim (I couldn't remember)
Zašto želim, da poletim (Why do I want to fly)
Zašto želim, krila (Why do I want wings)
Zašto mi govore - gle debila! (Why are they saying to me:"Look that moron!")

Nisam htio da priznam (I didn't want to admit)
Da sam mnogo bolestan (That I am very sick)
Za njih nisam htio ćut (For them I didn't want to hear)
Ja sam Ja sam Ja sam lud... (I am, I am, I am insane...)

Nisam mogo, da se sjetim (I couldn't remember)
Zašto želim, da poletim (Why do I want to fly)
Zašto želim, krila (Why do I want wings)
Zašto mi govore - gle debila! (Why are they saying to me:"Look that moron!")

Because I like this song so fucking much I also made a video on YouTube for that song with pictures from Punkart - check out link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETsVYbg8G2o . Anyway recordings have a couple of noises on the beginning and ending of songs from ripping them - probably CD was damaged, but fuck that glitches - inside are great music, so be sure to check it out! Download link is below, as usual - and also two songs from other their demo tape from that year are included. Cheers!
