One of the most important rock bands of the region, legendary Electric orgasmwill hold December 17 from 9 p.m. an exclusive concert in Belgrade Youth centerwhich will mark 40 years since the release of the cult second album “Leaves cover Lisbon„.
On this occasion, the band will not play all the songs from the aforementioned album, but will make a selection of songs that the audience has not had the opportunity to hear live for a long time, while the rest of the repertoire will consist of all the greatest hits from the 42-year long career of “Orgasm”. The concert will last over two hours, which will allow the legendary band to prepare a unique musical treat for all sincere fans of real rock sound who want to be part of the anthology.
“The sheet Lišće Covers Lisbon is one of the hidden masterpieces of Yugoslav rock and roll,” says music critic, publicist and editor of DOB’s music program Dragan Ambrozić, adding that this album was the highest artistic expression of the legendary band.
Also, music expert Zorica Kojić believes that the lyrics from the mentioned album were a deep philosophy, at a high level of art.
“We were dealing with art music, not the commercial aspect, and it didn’t matter to us how many records we sold. They told us from many sides that this album is unique, that it has no role models in other artists or albums”, remembers the frontman of the band, Srđan Gojković Gile.
The album itself was based on introspective themes of alienation, loneliness and paranoia, which Dušan Vesić, a rock journalist and publicist, described in his book “Revolt of the Children of Socialism” as a new level of urban uncompromisingness.
The album with a very poetic title was recorded in the studio “Tivoli” in Ljubljana with the help of producer Toni Jurij, and in a new line-up with Jovan Jovanović Grof on bass and army returnee Goran Čavajd Čavket on drums, while Ljubomir Jovanović Jovec on guitar, Srđan Gojković Gile on guitar and vocals and Ljubomir Đukić Ljuba on keyboards and vocals formed the nucleus of a perfectly played group.
It is interesting that the album “Leaves covers Lisbon” itself brought the post-punk sound to Yugoslavia and received excellent reviews in the media from the professional public, but only later did it reach cult status with the audience, while at the time of its release it represented a real avant-garde.
“I dare to say that the publication of the album Lišće covers Lisbon is one of the most daring discographic undertakings by a large record company (Jugoton), in this case the largest in the former state. It’s a powerful record of an unrepeatable, crazy musical adventure, an album that rare bands can record only once in their life, and if we start the story of art-rock in this area, then we can’t bypass Lišće covering Lisbon”, concludes music journalist Zoran Stajčić (Ravno to the bottom).
