There're two ex-Yugoslavian bands in Prog Archives, who are went in PA from Belgrade's post-punk scene of late 70s / early 80s; as they were found their place in PA long time ago, they deserved a word out and that is best to do with a poll.
For folks who don't know the bands, here's two vids with their best knowing songs; yes it is just two songs but if you hear those two, you will know a lot about their style because their catalogues are not versatile at all. Please vote.

Ona se Budi by Šarlo Akrobata

Quote (...) "They were always observed (and praised) through the prism of post punk/new wave, which they certainly deserve because they were part of that movement. Today, we can take a broader look at the band from the prog rock" (...)

Slobodan Pad by Doktor Spira i Ljudska Bića

Quote (...)  "In late 1970s he changed his style and formed an alternative post-punk band DOKTOR SPIRA & LJUDSKA BIĆA (Dr. Spira & the Human Beings). In 1980 they recorded their debut album "Dijagnoza", which contained unusual songs inspired by the New Wave urban alienation aesthetics and strong artistic feel." (...)

I don't know them but even if many proggers would define "Prog Punk" an oxymore, I like the idea. Look at this, for example.

Sorry but for some strange reason I can't embed the movie.
