Nakon RAMBA AMADEUSA na Ferragosto JAM šesticu za sve ljubitelje electro pop trasha, šljokica, božićnih lampica, čunga lunge, crtića, stripova, tite i jovanke, commodorea, ... i svih ostalih stvari za koje smo zaboravili da postoje, predstavljamo Vam hrvatsko-slovensku disko atrakciju - LOLLOBRIGIDA.
A project that started off as a mere karaoke attraction in 2003, namely Lollobrigida Girls, has now evolved into a fully functional electro-pop-punk band. The two singing baby-dolls (Ida & Petra) grew frustrated of carrying the bags and suitcases stuffed with their many stage costumes and synthesizers, and got themselves some testosterone backup & muscle in form of Kleemar (of Kleemar fame), David (of Sphericube fame/leaves the band in 2011) and Jernej (of Psycho-Path fame).
With this full strength lineup VIS Lollobrigida have been playing more or less every festival and club scene in the region for several years running. Sold out shows are completely natural.They have appeared at Sziget festival in Budapest, Hungary, as well as being pretty much a household band at the EXIT festival in Novi Sad, Serbia (this years forthcoming appearance being their 7th in a row). Binding their time and patiently building their fame through constant touring, the self proclaimed "tinselest" electro bubble gum trash band of Croatia, was in year 2009 crowned with MTV Europe's award for the Best Regional Act of MTV Adria.
The music of Lollobrigida is perfect for fans of colorful kinky disco worlds, kitsch, porn stars, trashy queens, lollipops, Jackie Chan, stilettos, Casio synths, sex, pink elephants, Chrystle and Alexis, boogie woogie, yuppies, disco, laptops, Elton John, office culture, can-can, blood, magic dust, strawberry-flavored lip balm, candy, trans sex, fetish, Stefan Franck.
Dedicated to real life people from the real life straight, bi, queer and trans world. This is disco punk and electro clash/trash music at its finest, drawing references to acts such as Denis&Denis, Videosex, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Ladyhawke, New Order, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Kills and many more.
In a region where the rights of the LGB population have never been high on a political and social agenda, this socially aware and openly gay-friendly band has fought to improve the situation through their activism as well as appearing several years in the row at the annual Gay Pride parade in Zagreb, Croatia.
