GORI USSI WINNETOU (Cro) - Addio Pola , cassette 1986

Franci Blaskovic is undoubtely the most interesting character of the Croatian underground scene.Playing from the 60s in various bands,having his first recording with the weird Arinka I Tingl Tangl band,and finally going strong with his Gori Ussi Winnetou band/project since 1986 (or at least recording since 1986.).Vocalist and bass guitar player.A guy that never ever wanted to be mainstream,a guy that refuse to play live in Pula (there were the art director of the rock club Uljanik in pula that denied the gig in the club for GUW,and Franci ever since never played a show in Pula.),a guy called "the Istrian Frank Zappa",a guy that few days ago released his 50th album (??!!)(and the last 40 albums all self-released in 4-5 years!!)..I could tell you about him all day long,I know him personally,and more or less worked with him (in the club Uljanik) few years in the 90s..but let`s return to this tape.This is his cult first album as GUW,very significant for the Istrian area,a mix-up of various styles all thrown into a cabaret-style of composing,all talking about the life in Pula and all in a language that he invented,a mix-of istrian-italian-german-englishlanguage with just a little Croatian...It is not the usual stuff I put here,but it is very significant in the Croatian underground.Well,Istrian underground..
