Shoegaze Psycho pop
In a time when female artists get more and more involved in alternative music, the quartet Lilith Cage, consisting of drummer Matjaž Pegan, guitar player Vili Domijan, and bass player Piro Pocecco, is most defined in terms of originality and character by the amazing voice of singer Lili Žigo.
The synergy of Lilith Cage, whose members hail from the Posavje and Primorska region, results in the reincarnation of the post-punk new wave spirit of the 1980’s and a finely-tuned feeling for sinister alternative music and psychedelic shoegaze.
The music of Lilith Cage brings to life both a sensual softness that grows with sophistication into a strong, disobedient and dangerous femininity, and the slow-burning revolt of punk and new-wave music of the 1980’s. A dreamy poetic atmosphere, with dark notes of sin and demonic simplicity of the underlying beat, covered by a contemplative sound of guitar and bass and bound together by the voice of a strong woman who defies a world ruled by machos, signals the dynamic birth of a unique genre of music.
The band are hard at work on their first studio album. Meanwhile, they are bringing their intense interpersonal chemistry to a stage near you.

Demolition Group are an uncompromising rock band and still exist on the verge of alter and undergrounds music. Clear and loud, with a sensitive and critical attitude towards what’s going on in the world of today and the ever-growing atomization of society.
Despite many roadblocks and changes, Demolition Group preserved their creative power and have been hard at work on a new album, which was released in May and supported by a release gig at Kino Šiška.
To this day, the band have released fourteen albums, with their last album Zlagano sonce launching in May 2015. The album was nominated as a top-five record of 2015.
Demolition Group appeared in numerous well-known European festivals, such as San Remo rock, Barcelona Bienale, Berlin Independence days, Druga godba Ljubljana, Carrot Budapest, MTV Calgari, Arezzo wave, Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro de Bogota-Colombia, and many more.
In the early 1990’s, the band released two albums with the Italian record label Cruisin' Hiara of Modena.
They were featured on the compilation record Trans Slovenia Express (Mute Records – Kraftwerk covers) and wrote music for performances of the Mladinsko gledališče theatre from Ljubljana – Roberto Zucco (1994), Butterendfly (1995), Mesto v katerem nisem bil (1998), as well as music for two feature films – both directed by Sašo Podgoršek – Sladke Sanje and Temni Angeli Usode, after the screenplay written by band singer Goran Šalamon, with the band members acting out the leading roles in both.
Some members of Demolition Group even collaborated with high-profile bands, such as Laibach, Borghesia, and many more.
The music of Demolition Group is a high-powered mix of distortion and acoustic rhythms, rock and funk guitars, neurotic saxophone and archaic vocals.
