Subotica, Serbia (1991 – 2002)

Džukele (Serbian Cyrillic: Џукеле; trans. The Curs) were a band from from Subotica, Serbia .

The band Phoenix was formed in 1991 by Dragan Neorčić (bass), Slobodan Vukosavljević (guitar, vocals), and Rudolf Aleksijević. Together they recorded their first, seven-track demo recorded at the Classic studio and a few months later, on February 1992, the band recorded another demo, featuring two songs. On April of the same year, former Allegro member Leonid Pilipović, also known as Leo fon Punkerstein, joined the band and, as Phoenix ‘39, the band recorded their third demo recording, made on November at the Do-Re-Mi studio in Novi Sad. After the demo recording, the band was renamed to Džukele, and started performing live, including the 1993 Gitarijada festival in Zaječar, which was their first major live appearance, and, during February 1994, at the Brzi Bendovi Srbije festival, where, along with Goblini, were pronounced the greatest breakthrough of the year.

The band debut album Gledajući u mrak (Looking at the dark), recorded on November 1993 at Do-Re-Mi studio, was released on May, 1994 through Metropolis records. On the album appeared the songs “Most” (“Bridge”), “Amerika” (America”) (for which the band partially used the lyrics of Azra hit “Pit, i to je Amerika” (“Pete, that’s also America”)), “Energija” (“Energy”) and “Ne mogu da pobegnem” (“I can’t escape”). The album also featured a cover version of The Police hit “Next To You”, with lyrics in Serbian entitled “Opasan grad” (“Dangerous town”). The lyrics for the album were written by Vukosavljević, and the whole band was working on the music writing and album production. The album was promoted until December 1994, when Neorčić and Vukosavljević went to the army and Pilipović joined Goblini.
