      Top Serbian punk!

      Plitka Poezija is the 1st album by the late 70's, early 80s Serbian punk band Pekinska Patka (Peking Duck), the band were loud, raucuous and oozed punk power and despite the dodgy recording, they produce some of the best, catchiest and intriguing punk ever.

      Even one of the tracks features English, so there's a bit for everyone although it is mostly geared at Serbian speakers, music lovers should naturally enjoy the upbeat chaotic yet simple tempo which combines a sort of Joy Division sound with a more typical 77 sounding punk band.

      The lyrics are generally angst-ridden youngsters singing against the Communist government of the time and this year they re-united to take part at Exit Festival, featuring on the last night with the equally re-united Sex Pistols. The band also described themselves as "The First Orthodox Punk Rock band" which got up the noses of the government of the era who promoted atheism.

      Various other antics such as changing the lyrics to the Socialist Youth Work Actions song to a ditty about Bridget Bardot's genitals, gave this Novi Sad band their first taste of fame but their concerts were often cancelled and they only went on to make one more album, unfortunately there wasn't a lot of interest in it and the band eventually split up. It has been insinuated that the band Toy Dolls who were formed later, took a fair amount of influence in style of music and dress from this band but whether they were aware of that, I'm not sure!

      It's not the most intricate musicianship but it's full of energy, has a specificly melodical sound to it and is really rather enjoyable.
