Miha Kralj – Odyssey

Found this yesterday – looking all lonely next to a bunch of cheesy brass-band LPs – and with a track listing of follows – who wouldn’t have grabbed it ??

01 Odyssey (18:50)
02 Erotic Space (5:02)
03 Jupiter (7:45)
04 Computor (3:45)

I suspect I should know a little about this release – as it seems to be some sort of missing link in the eastern-european evolution of electronic Tangerine Dram style dablings – and mid 80s electro – but never heard of it or him before !!

There seems very little info on the web – although second-hand prices for this LP seem pretty high – here is something I have found however – anyone have any further gump – please add !!

He used to be in a group called Dekameroni, sort of one-hit-wonder band in Slovenia, they spawned a hit called Sava Sumi (written by Miha), which was covered several times during these years (originally it was recorded somewhere round 1970, sounded like Procol Harum).

Then he was in a band called Prah (Eng.Dust). They had few hits like Urska, Balada, Sezona senc and Halo Natasa (this one is from 1980, I believe).

Later on (mid 80s) he collaborated with a band called Black&White, playing keyboards on their biggest hit Prisluhni skoljki (written by Mr.Jani Golob). It was main theme from some teenage Flashdance-like Slovenian movie. It also sounds like being written by Moroder.

Afterwards his only moderately successful song was called Zemlja klice SOS. Now, he’s reported being dance club musician, occasionally entertaining together with ex-singer from a group called Moulin Rouge.
