Bastion- Bastion LP

Posted in 1980s, 1984, bastion, new wave, synthpop, yugoslavian on October 5, 2009 by Frankie Teardrop

Here’s a curious anomaly from Yugoslavia. As far as I’m aware, this particular eponymous LP, released in 1984 is Bastion’s only release. A little schizophrenic new wave/synthpop in the vein of Pas De Deux, Sizike, and Borghesia.

 Bastion were a short lived, but fruitful collaboration between actress/singer Ana Kostovska, composer and musician Kiril Džajkovski, bassist Ljubomir Stojsavljević and film director Milčo Mančevski. They were one of the first electronic bands from the then Socialist Republic of Macedonia within SFR Yugoslavia. The LP features 8-tracks of melancholy, yet romantic electropop with both female and male vocals across the board. You can read more about the band here. Enjoy!
