Klopka za pionira (Trap for Pioneers) is a noise rock band from Belgrade and Pancevo (Balkans, Southeast European Hole). Their music is built on improvisation, creative (mis)treatment of instruments, applied noise, and cooperation of humans and machines. Their songs contain engaged lyrics sung with expressive voice. Klopka za pionira strives to sound intensive, noisy, sometimes aggressive and sometimes gentle but always sincere and true. They create their own new spaces for exploring music as they hear and understand it.
The meaning of the band's name is that those who are trying something new encounter many obstacles.
Klopka's music has often been described as unnaceptable, mostly because of noise, dissonance, and unpleasant voice. Still, maybe because their brave approach to music, or because they persist on the road never travelled, Klopka za pionira have gained many friends and admirerers and almost a cult status even among those who cannot stand them.
Klopka za pionira was founded in 2003 by Mileta Mijatovic (voice, percussions, lyrics) and Damjan Brkic (guitar, machines, music). Another two people who contributed to the development of the band are Vladimir Lenhart (bass, processed tapes) and Marc Schneider - the band's photographer, driver, and a volunteer manager. Vuk Palibrk (drums) and Zoran Jovic Letac Djavo (drums) played in the band during 2004 and 2005.
