Biography

Beograd, Serbia (1991 – 2001)

http://www.myspace.com/urgh1

URGH! was a band active in Belgrade, Serbia, from 1991 to 2001. During a decade of their existence, they displayed an impressive ability to change their musical direction and merge various genres in their output.The band kicked-off as grindcore quartet and achieved relative fame when a video for their song Paradise Town got aired on the first national channel. It was a big thing back in the day, since Serbia had only three TV-channels.

The first “real” release was a split tape with P.M.S. in 1992 called Yonuss Tape. Although not a first band from Belgrade to play grindcore, URGH! managed to approach a wider audience with their sound. Searching for a new musical identity ensued, leading to another two cassette releases: 9194 and Unplugged. While former blended grindcore with all sorts of musical directions in a perplexing cacophony, the latter offered a mellow side of same songs including orchestrations with violin, accordion and toys. Until 1997 URGH! stabilized in a sort of post-core/noise sound and released Oesophagus. The song Kratko&Jasno, boosted by a furious video, became band’s most recognizable song. In 1999 URGH! re-recorded some old songs and complied a “best of” release. Planned to be band’s first CD, 120% never saw light of the day because band’s then-publisher B92 got taken over by the regime and CD destroyed along with some other releases.

    Bio danas na snimanju novog albuma, bas i bubanj snimljeni, ostaju jos gitare i vokal na nekim pesmama. Na albumu ce biti 12 pesama, od kojih je jedna starija "Budjenje" samo u drugacijem aranzmanu. Sto se tice zvuka najpriblizniji je Oesophagus albumu.

    Ghagi je nekada bio saradnik na radiju b92 koliko je meni poznato, a moguce je da je radio i neke tv emisije ili ucestvovao u istima.

    URGH! je nedavno održao prvu probu u kompletnom sastavu posle devet godina. Nije u pitanju comeback, već nam je želja da snimimo samo jedan album. Počeli smo da pravimo nove pesme. Biće tu i živog bubnja i semplova, doduše ne u istoj pesmi. Album smo ambiciozno i kompilatorski koncipirali: od energičnih gitarskih numera, preko slušljivih elektro eksperimenata, do akustičnih momenata. Za sada ne obećavamo grindcore...
