Vroči cilindri (“hot cylinders”)
In the past, all band members explored different areas of musical expression. Especially in their youth, they gathered experience as rockers. Samo, former dean of the Faculty of Education (University of Maribor) and now a professor at the same faculty, as well as Frank and Toni, were members of the legendary rock group Nima Smisla (“senseless”) nearly 40 years ago. They performed in Maribor and its surrounding during the same time as many famous and successful bands like Lačni Franz (“hungry Franz”) and Preporod (“rebirth”) were formed. Tina and Dani, the younger band members, were also fond of rock and metal, and they are just as experienced as the “grey-haired” band colleagues. Tina, the lead singer, is also a professional opera singer in Maribor, which is nothing to sneeze at. After a thirty-year long pause, the band reunited a year ago in order to “search for their youth”. They discovered the “balm for their soul” in old and new rock hits, which they interpret in their own cover songs, thus “blowing off steam” on their path towards the second half of their lives!
In short: worth seeing, hearing … and blowing off steam!
Members: prof. dr. Samo Fošnarič, (rythm guitar, vocal),
