Smak (Serbian Cyrillic, Smak; trans. Endtime is a former Yugoslav and Serbian rock band from Kragujevac. In the 1970s, the group was one of the most prominent acts on the ex-Yugoslav rock scene. Radomir Mihajlovic (“The Wheel”) is the band’s leader. He is widely considered to be one of the most important and influential guitarists in the Yugoslav rock scene. The band was formed in 1971 by Radomir Mihajlovic (“Tocak”) and Dejan Stojanovic (“Kepa”), but it didn’t get a default line-up until 1975 when vocalist Boris Arandelovic, bassist Zoran Milanovic, and keyboard player Laza Rastovski became the official band members. After recording the band’s debut album, Ristovski quit the band. The remaining members recorded subsequent albums with different keyboard players, before disbanding in 1980. The band was briefly reunited between 1986 and 1992. It was then reformed by two of its founding members, Dejan Najdanovic (“Najda”), the second drummer Dejan Stejanovic (“Kepa Jr.”), second guitarist Milan Milosavljevic (Mikica”), and bassist Vlada Samanthazic. The bassist Slobodan Marcovic “Sale”, who played with the band until 2002, when Smak was again disbanded, replaced the former. The remaining members of the original lineup were reunited with Milos Petrovic, the new bassist. They also rehearsed for a return tour and recorded several new songs. Bio by Wikipedia
