Laki Pingvini were a Serbian rock band from Belgrade. While initially being a new wave act, throughout their later career, the band turned towards synthpop and pop rock.

The band were a support act for Duran Duran in 2006.

Background informationEdit

The band were formed in 1979 and had their first public appearance on 29 November, at a punk costume party held at the Pinki club in Zemun. At the time, the band had four vocalists and no regular lineup, but, as time passed, the lineup featuring Đorđe Dragojlović (vocals), Časlav Stanković (guitar), Srđan Đurić (bass guitar), Aleksandar Rodić (keyboards) and Milan Bubalo (drums) became the default band lineup.

The band started working more accurately in September 1982, and the following summer release their debut EP Šizika (Crazyca). The EP, beside the title track, featured two more tracks, "Devojka iz Svemira" ("A Girl from Outer Space") and "Možda, Možda" ("Maybe, Maybe").

The following year, the band released their debut album, Muzika za Mlade (Music for the Young Ones), produced by Slobodan Marković, featuring a cover version of the Bay City Rollers' "Yesterday's Hero".

The following album Striptiz (Striptease), released in 1985, featured the hit "Blago Morskih Dubina" ("Sea-Depths Treasure"). After the album release, vocalist Đorđe Dragojlović left the band and started working under the alias Super Đoka, under which he appeared at the MESAM festival in 1986.

In 1989, the band split up. Laki Pingvini later had reformations and reunions in 1994, 1995 and 2006.
