Dobri Isak- Mi plačemo iza tamnih naočara K7

Contained within this post is Dobri Isak’s lone record, released on cassette in 1986. This Serbian darkwave/post-punk band drew heavy inspiration from Joy Division, so this is definitely a must for fans of dark, furious, and somewhat lo-fi post-punk and goth rock.

There seems to be an abundance of information about the band, despite their relative obscurity. The band, whose name translates to “Kind Isaac,” originally formed in 1983. After three years and a handful of lineup shifts, they dropped their first and only release. The cassette (which translates to “We Cry Behind Dark Glasses) was limited to 100 copies, which quickly sold out. The record contains an Arnold Layne song, the band several members were active in alongside Dobri Isak.

Though the record came out in 1986, Dobri Isak remained together until 1996, playing their last gig with Arnold Layne and splitting soon after. In 2009, PMK Records re-released their cassette, tacking on a few extra bonus tracks at the end. However, here’s a rip of the original cassette, as donated by a generous last.fm user. Be sure to purchase the reissue if you dig these tracks!

Note: My upload of the cassette seems to have an extra track inserted in the middle, one which does not appear on the official discogs/reissue listing. According to the cassette artwork- “Nepoznata” does not appear on the release, but might very well be a hidden track. Any information welcome!

  1. Hi, the track "Nepoznata" (trans. "Unknown track") is NOT a hidden track. The guy who ripped the tape added it to the rip. The song is actually called "Helen Keller" and it appeared as a bonus track on the PMK rerelease.

  2. my theory is that the reason why theres so much information about them is simply because its such a great album. possibly one of the five all-time best ever

  3. And there is the translation:
    Dobri Isak – Good (or Kind) Isaac
    Mi plačemo iza tamnih naočara – We cry behind (dark) sunglasses
    Ona se igra nožem – she plays with knife
    Sinoć si sanjao da si pas – Yesterday you dreamed you are a dog
    Čekamo te na istom mestu – We wait for you at same place
    Ja znam da ću propasti – I know I shall went bust
    Nepoznata – Unknown (female person)
    Feniks – phoenix
    Plakati su ikone – posters are icons
    Dozvoli mi da ostanem u tvom krevetu – Let me stay in your bed
    Mrzim te – (I) hate you
    Tu u uglu (Tada sam te poslednji put vidio) – Here in a corner (That was the last time I ever saw you)

    Strange. I lived in ex-Yu , however this is another band I've never heard of…
