Biography

Kozmetika (Serbian Cyrillic: Козметика; trans. Cosmetics) were a Serbian New Wave / art rock band from Belgrade, notable as one of the pioneers and promoters of New Wave music and culture through their youth magazine IZgled. Influenced by the David Bowie album Diamond Dogs, painter Vladimir Jovanović, director Marko Pešić, music editor of the RTV Studio B television station Slobodan Konjović and Saša Nikolić, the owner of the first discotheque in Belgrade at the Atelje 212, formed the band Dijamantski Psi (Diamond Dogs) in 1974. In 1976, the band changed his name for a short period of time to Spajalice (The Staples). The band was finally renamed to Kozmetika in 1978, named after a combination of the words Kosmička Etika (Cosmic Ethics), featuring Vladimir Jovanović (guitar, vocals), Marko Pešić (synthesizer), Slobodan Konjović (bass) and Miško Mihajlovski (rhythm machine).
Inspired by the works of Brian Eno as well as the current musical trends, the band used a technique in album production similar to the one which would later be known as sampled music, creating their own vision of art rock. However, due to being uncommunicative, the album failed to reach much feedback from the audience. Even though after the album release the band often performed live, Kozmetika disbanded.
