For the first time, Fox & His Friends team compiles best cuts from unreleased and rare NEP tapes, covering the period from 1985 to 1989 on POP NOT POP album. Some of the memorable moments on POP NOT POP album are early demo version of Decadance ‘How Do I Dance To This Music?’ with blue movies samples and drum machine experiments like early Cabaret Voltaire, then Krsic’s reinterpretation of legendary Kraftwerk’s Trans Europe Express anthem as ‘Transcendance’, or ‘Radical Chic’, where Dejan himself and Anja Rupel from Videosex make a lovely couple of dandy-esque fashionistas, singing chart-friendly radio synthpop tune that contrasts the A-side (The ‘NOT POP’ side) – full of experiments, dark wave and industrial nods to Test Department and Cabs. B-side is ‘THE POP’ side that will surprise most of the NEP followers from their early experimental cassette days. Sunny, danceable, joyful pop that reveals the many faces of NEP. ‘POP NOT POP’ is a document of how the vivid and creative were art scenes in socialist Yugoslavia.
