Crvena jabuka ("Red apple") is a Sarajevo-based rock/pop band that originated in 1985, and since then has remained very popular. They were also a part of the so-called New Primitives movement that occurred in the 1980s in the Former Yugoslavia territory.
Buldožer was Yugoslav-Slovenian progressive rock band from 1970s and 1980s. They were one of the first bands in communist Yugoslavia that could be considered alternative, and forefathers of the Yugoslav new wave. In musical sense, they were experimenting with a variety of genres, while most of their lyrics, written in Serbo-Croatian, were a satire and mocking the political and musical establishment, themselves included. Buldožer was the first Yugoslavian rock band who released an album in a compact disc format—compilation album Nova vremena in 1989.
For prog fans the first album "Time" is highly recommended for listening. It is one of the best debuts in the former Yugoslavian rock scene and it influenced many generations of musicians.
