Bast: Bast (2000)

Project BAST started in 1998 as music studio project initiated by Aldo Ivančić and Vuk Kraković. In 1999, with entrance of the conceptual artist Janez Janša, the project turned into a multi-layer platform for audio-visual experiments, media invasions and forge for artistic guerrilla tactics.
Music wised the project BAST is a journey to the urban-pagan trance, that overrides the boundaries of genres in its content and form. It is a melting pot that destroys the artificial borders between cultures and returns to the music as a ritual act. It is not ethno, rock, jazz, techno, hip-hop, avant-garde or pop, but a continuous search for the balance between chaos and order.

Ujetniki Svobode: Demo (1987)

Another legendary and influential band from Laško. For such a small community it is amazing that so many good bands were active there: A.D.P. (the first punk band from Laško from late 70s), It's Not For Sale, Marvin, In The Crossfire, The Stroj, Mental Strike, Daddy's Pudding... I think that one of the members of Ujetniki Svobode was Miloš Radosavljevič, that later on played in Spiritual Pyrotechnics, Polska Malca and Shyam. Well worth checking out!

Stranci: Zavrnjeno (2005)

Yesterday I was attending the concert where Stranci played. It was not the first time I saw them live, but have to admit I never enjoyed them so much as yesterday. As they are in a process of recording their 3rd album, they played some new songs that really rock. New material is a little slower, but heavier with riffs and interresting bass lines. Zavrnjeno is their first album.

Drajtšponarji: Marostarska Veselica (1997)

Years back I exchanged a couple of letters (yes, snail mail) with Pero Fotar. The first correspondence between us was about comics that he drew and I published some in my fanzine. Later on he was a band member of Drajtšponarji, a punk band from Bevke, village just outside of Ljubljana. He sent me this tape that I still have (although this is not my rip) and I remember listening to it a couple of times and having fun, laughing at the lyrics. Zetor was probably their biggest hit. They sang in Slovenian and English, although the Slovenian lyrics are "stronger" and not just fun, but also with a social note. Check it out!

Named after Interpol's song, Obstacle 2 is (was?, as I don't know if the have split-up) my fav Slovenian indie band. They have that distinctive sound that you can easly imagine their work being released on Matador or Sub Pop. Unfortunattely they don't play live so often anymore. They are the Slovenian answer to Interpol, Maximo Park, Belle & Sebastian, Pavement, etc... Lovely stuff!

Amper-O-Mat - Podalpska Kibernetika EP (2007)

Amper-O-Mat doesn't take his music serious. It's all joke to him, just having fun. As it should be. But somehow critics have managed to find hidden agendas in his work and mostly they take his industrial sound very serious. With no effort Amper-O-Mat is an inspiration to a lot of guys out there... Plus one curiosity: he records everything at first take.

Alex Bass Undertaker = Actooon: Cemeteryland (1999)

Alex Bass is quite a character. His beginnings as a guitarist and a bass player date back to 1982. He has quite a lot of pseudonyms, so you can find him under Vikingvin, Actooon, Actoool… He works as a guitar and bass teacher and he published 5 textbooks for guitar player. Although he is a guitar virtuoso every band wanted him to be a bass player. After meeting him I would say he is a very extraverted person with a huge ego but very lucid in thought if you are willing to listen him. And by the way, he has Elvis's pink cadillac tattooed on his chest! Damn!

He is interested in the mass killings within recent history, ecology and vegan diet (among other stuff). All these themes are being reflected in his works. The album Cemeteryland talks about a deserted local cemetery Golovec that I grew up under and used to hike there a lot. It was very eerie at night, broken down gravestones, open graves… It still gives me the chills. Alex managed to evoke those feelings in the second song perfectly… Creeping laughter over the guitar makes me remember all those nights that we used to hide on the cemetery.

This is a great album but not easy listening! Morbid industrial, heavy guitars, creepy effects… Alex composed the music, played the guitar, bass, fretless bass, programmed the effects and drums for Cemeteryland. Completely authorial album!

01. Cemetery Golovec (11:06)
02. Running Across The Hill (10:50)
03. Crypt's Black Monastery (11:38)
04. Resurrection (11:28)

Icarus Down: Soundtrack of a Weekend (2006)

03. Take Five More (3:20)

Killing Option: Faced With Death (2005)

Hardcore band from Celje / Laško (I think). When I first saw them they were youngsters with a lot of stage energy.
