AT. 009. „ARHIVSKA ZABAVA-Sistemski haos“official tape

Arhivska Zabava was the first Crass style band in socialist Yugoslavia featuring members of Necrophilia, Crist and Distress.

They recorded this 5 track tape in Dule's laundry room in 1983 that was professionally remastered by Gvido Obradović in November 2016.

The band was influenced by the early 80's British anarcho punk scene with lyrics that criticized war and the system. Due to the Yugoslavian censorship law the band refused to have a 7'' EP released by the city owned record label.

Their sound is similar to Rudimentary Peni, Crisis and Epileptics, but with that unique and distinctive Yugoslavian dark and depressive punk edge.

The tapes are pro dubbed black tapes with white pad print and they come with an A4 poster sleeve including the retouched art originally made by the band guitarist Gvido.

Tnx a lot to Charles Bukowski and Ana Puk for the cover art and the cassette design and to Gvido Obradović for remastering the original tracks.
