Darkwood Dub, U nedogled (Ad nauseum)
After an absence of several years, Darkwood Dub's legendary second
album is back - extended and digitally enhanced - with previously
unreleased tracks "Smak" and "Filadelfija" (electronic
version) and extra material recorded in Novi Sad in 1995.
Review by Jelena Djurovic:
The mid-nineties was when Darkwood Dub ceased to be a local underground
attraction. When U nedogled came out everyone could find for themselves
subtle signs of a rebellion against the situation in the country.
And those signs, not easily traceable, maybe not even planned, worked
nonetheless. These are the nineties and the mythology is seen only
by the participants, those who never left because they couldn't
or wouldn't. And only the most persistent were "part of that
This album bears witness to that time far better than all the footage
of handshakes at Dayton, the throwing of eggs at the television
or the bombing of Pale. It speaks of a consciousness among a generation
that will never again be that young, that poor, that angry and,
most importantly, will never again have a common enemy. By listening
to this album you reach the conclusion that a rare virtue of repression
has inspired a supreme work of art.
Don't you feel a perverse nostalgia for those days while you listen
to the pleasant and cautionary "Kolotecina"?
In the autumn of 1995 a minute lasts days. No changes. Ad nauseum.
In the autumn of 2003 days are measured in minutes. Every twitch
of consciousness becomes habit.
