Legendary Belgrade band Electric orgasm this year it is celebrating 41 years of existence and 40 years since the release of the first album, and on that occasion it will perform in Subotica. The concert will be held in the club Mladost (Harambašićeva 4) on Friday, September 24, starting at 9 p.m.
“I am very happy that we are performing in Subotica, because we know that we have a lot of fans in the far north of Vojvodina that we have not seen for a very long time. More than 10 years have passed since our last solo performance in Subotica, and now we are coming to make up for it and play two hours of great rock and roll! ”, he says Gile before the concert in Subotica.
An urban legend says that the band was formed on January 13, 1980, after the group’s concert Bread and salt in the House of Trade Unions, when Srdjan Gojković Gile, Ljubomir Jovanović Jovec and Ljubomir Đukić Ljuba went to the bohemian tavern “Mornar” (since there were no cafes at that time) and decided to make a punk band. Name Electric orgasm suggested Gile, as it first occurred to him, wanting to deliberately provoke and shock the establishment at the time.
“That day we were at the concert of the group Leb i sol. The concert was great, but it just wasn’t enough for us, who were listening to what we were listening to, with swollen teenage energy. We wanted something else and after the concert we went to the tavern “Mornar”. It was, during that time, a common situation – no waiters. That is how one of our first songs, “Waiter”, was created, and that same evening, Electric Orgasm was created. “, members of this cult band remember.
The electric orgasm was actually made for just one concert, to perform as a pre-band Hipnotisanom piletu, a band in which Gile played the drums and Jovec the guitar (so themselves), because they didn’t know who to be their pre-band, and at that time it was common for every concert to have a pre-band.
Already at this first concert, which they held in the small hall of SKC in mid-June 1980, they caused total delirium and euphoria in the audience, and after the concert it was clear to everyone that from that moment Hypnotized chicken no longer exists, and that Electric Orgasm became the main and only band.
“As soon as we played that famous first concert of Electric Orgasm as a prelude to Hypnotized Chicken, everyone in Belgrade immediately found out about us and we became at least a star there. In two months, everyone in Yugoslavia knew about the band. “, Gile remembers.
More than 40 years have passed since then, and during that time Electric Orgasm has changed many members and lineups, survived and outlived several wars and states, released many anthology albums and songs, held many concerts and raised a lot of dust many times, and he was and on the verge of disintegration, but it has survived, and today, proudly and with its head held high, it certainly represents one of the most important and longest-lived rock bands from this area.
Tickets at the price of 1000 dinars are on sale and can be purchased at the Mladost club (Harambašićeva 4) every day except Sunday after 7 p.m.
All previously purchased tickets for the concert on April 4 last year will be valid for a new date without modification, and those who do not like the new date can return the tickets to the club by September 15 at the latest.
