Zbogom Brus Li (Goodbye Bruce Lee) is a Punk Rock band From Novi Sad, Serbia that combines, punk rock with Vojvodinian ethno music into a style the band describes as "tamburashki punk". The unique sound of ZBL band is a combination of classic punk rock and traditional music of Vojvodina and by combining the classic rock instruments - guitar and drums - and the traditional duet of Vojvodina – begesh (a type of contrabass) and tamburitza. The band was formed in 1992 in Novi Sad (capital of Vojvodina), and was extremely active from 1994 till 2000, played mainly in Vojvodina, Serbia, Ex-YU countries and Hungary. In the summer of 2005, Zbogom Brus Li began playing again. From 2005. till the present day the band had numerous gigs (Exit festival 2006, Eurobasket 2005, Motovun Film Festival 2007 ...). Band produces a strong , ethno-punk sound and great amount of positive energy on stage. Live performances are enriched with wide variety of costumes. The unique sound of ZBL band is a combination of classic punk rock and traditional music of Voivodina and by combining the classic rock instruments - guitar and drums - and the traditional duet of Voivodina – begesh (a type of contrabass) and tambura, is how they do it. A melodic part-singing is another recognizable characteristic of the band. Faithful followers of Zbogom Brus Li are the theatrical troop Black Hole, the orchestra Intoxicated Nights and brass orchestra (trumpet, trombone and sax). ZBL band was founded in 1992 and was (more or less) active during the past 14 years. The ZBL sound is based on punk rock, but it also incorporates many other genres (such as Rhythm and Blues, Rock, Hard and Heavy, Rockabilly, Jazz, Classical, Pop, Voivodian ethno music (with an accent on tambura), Ska (without Reggae), a little bit of Surf, Hard Core, football fans songs, kazoo) which were combined and mixed to create the unique ZBL sound. The essential characteristics of ZBL live performance are wide variety of theatrical properties and clothes borrowed from our parents' wardrobes. Our faithful followers on gigs are the theatrical troop Black Hole, the orchestra Intoxicated Nights and brass orchestra (trumpet, trombone and sax). The band was extremely active from 1994 till 2000. We played mainly in Voivodina, Serbia, Ex-YU countries and Hungary. ZBL were also welcomed guests and entertainers at the numerous happenings like Svinjokolj of Srem (an event during which people slaughter pigs for their meat) and Kulenijada (Sausage Festival). Gigs have been accompanied with many TV and radio appearances, where we have shocked our hosts and provoked high blood pressure, but on the other hand raised the number of fans. We shot large number of videos (around 15) which were enriched with comical approach to music and the situation in the country and the surrounding in which we live in. In the year 2000, the band temporarily stopped playing because it was pointless. And in the meantime, our personal experiences together with local and global events helped us to sharpen and encircle our anarchistic philosophy and give us a reason to play again. New material is ready. In the summer of 2005, ZBL began playing again. After nearly five years of break, the first gig was held in the center of Novi Sad. It showed that the fans havent forgotten us. Our ambitions in further work are to combine guitar and tambura sound and the replacement of the bass guitar with a begesh (traditional contrabass of Voivodina). In the end, the fans' encouragement to proceed with this guitar-tambura concept is the most important thing. Definitely, our mission is to form the new sound and to define the concept of so called Brand New Voivodian song. Still we remain fiery and loud, with unambiguous text messages. That is how we proved that we are worthy of our goddess Great Cosmic Foolishness ( that some people like to call Life), and worthy of her philosophy which she spreads through us, and people like us, over this Valley Of Tears, Dimension Of Unnecessary Fear and Exhausting Work in which we are trapped in.
