Demolition Group

Profile:
DEMOLITION GROUP comes from Slovenia. They started in 1983 under the name Gast'r'bajtr's. In those days they played their own typical variation of white funk. As Gastarbeiters they released two LP's in former Yugoslavia.

In 1986 Gastarbeiters transformed their music into a fusion of heavy metal, funk and electronic rhythms. They felt the name DEMOLITION GROUP was right for the new style. They played many important European festivals such as SAN REMO rock '88, BARCELONA BIENAL '87, BERLIN INDEPENDENCE Days ('89), DRUGA GODBA ('86) and others. Soon after their coming out (1986) they were signed by the Italian label CRUISIN' HIARA Records (Modena), for whom they released two records, which were promoted in most European countries.

DEMOLITION GROUP's music is an energetic fusion of electronic and acoustic drums, rock and funk oriented guitars, neurotic saxophone and specific vocals. "They look and sound like Doctor Feelgood after 18 pints having a jam with Killing Joke's roadies" (NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS, 1994) Being excellent musicians, the musical skills of various members of DEMOLITION GROUP are also evident in the work of bands such as LAIBACH, BORGHESIA and many others (varying from rock to contemporary classical).

I saw them at the Barcelona Biennal '87, and they were just incredible.. A brutal force of the nature with no interest in matter of image or fucking look. A very different attitude than most of the '80s bands. They were on stage with friar sandals but proposing a violent version of a slavic no wave. They seemed great musicians too. To be fired from the compilation r3607077 of that artistic event was a real sin..
