Indexi were one of the earliest and most enduring bands in ex-Yugoslavia that enjoyed popularity across generations of the followers of rock music. The band was founded in 1962 in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Since all the members were university students, they had easily chosen the name for the band – Indexi (plural of “index”, a student’s blue book for writing exams and attendance). In the beginning they played mostly instrumental covers of popular hits, but around 1967 started composing their own songs. The core line-up consisted of Slobodan A. Kovacevic-guitar, Fadil Redzic-bass and Davorin Popovic-vocals, while they frequently changed drummers and keyboard players. Indexi led two parallel careers: the one as a popular band recording numerous singles and EPs, and performing at the pop festivals of easy listening “schlager” music; and the other one as a pioneering progressive band, which had recorded allegedly the first song lasting over 10 minutes in former Yugoslavia, “Negdje na kraju u zatisju” in 1969.
At the beginning of the 70s they released the legendary “Plima” single in 1972, a composition that had been recorded back in 1968 and featured one of the most memorable guitar solos in the Yugoslavian rock-scene, courtesy of Kovacevic. The rest of their career from mid-70s through 90s they occasionally recorded singles and appeared in concerts at random, deliberately avoiding temptations of a typical rock and roll life-style. This is why perhaps they maintained their longevity for 35+ years.
