Popošev I Rozenfeld - Pčelica Maja 82 (demo cass, not on label, 1982)




Members: Blaženko 'Karo' Karešin, Antun 'Troga' Trogrlić, Zvonko 'Viki' Slišurić

Minimal-electronic duo/trio from Nova Gradiška (Croatia), active shortly in 1982.

One summer in Nova Gradiška, Karo and Troga, Farfisa organ treated with guitar effects (delay, hall, etc..) and around ten songs... Performance in August '82 as Poposhev and Rosenfeld at the Summer Stage is still remembered as something specialThe day before the show Viki had joined them (called Pnomh Pen) and on the stage, between the songs played by the other two guys, recited verses of poems about Maya, the bee who was 'illustrated' by their music which was actually composed prior texts.

Popošev i Rozenfeld had only one live performance and they were the epitome of minimalist electronics sound of that era, they didn't have the echo of a firstwave minimalwave bands in Yugoslavia at that time known as far to Pozega and Western Slavonia, just like the case of Sat Stoicizmo.

"Ljetna Livada" is also included in Ex Yu Electronica Vol I: Hometaping In Self-Management compilation ‎(Monofonika).

The original cover of Pčelica Maja 82 (Maya the Bee 82) tape is lost so I created one myself.
