  • SAŠA 21  - VD-i1 - 12


Old punk, new project – in short, this is a way to describe Sale Veruda’s (ex-KUD Idijoti) new work. Alongside his original band, with the beginning of the new millennium, Sale decided to engage with his new band. He named his trio Saša 21, in which he is the lead vocalist and guitarist. The structure of the band is enhanced by the bass player and vocalist, Boris Kvaternik, and a drummer known only as Kolumbo, who joined the band in 2013 replacing the original drummer Aljoša Monar.

They recorded their first, and at this time, only album in 2004, named VD-i1. The album has been recorded at Muzički atelier David in Rijeka under David Trkulja’s supervision. There are other contributors to this album like Studio Šufit, and finally Partyzan, responsible for mixing, and Petar Dundov who took care of mastering. Ten years of waiting patiently hides the fact that Sale waited for the perfect chance to release the album on vinyl. Dirty Old Label and PDV Records got the role of the contractors and in September of 2014, the album had been released on Saša’s medium of choice.

This limited vinyl release (521 copy in total) carries 12 songs. The music backbone of VD-i1 is ’77 style punk. However, the sound is enriched with slightly modern version of punk, rock and even with elements of white reggae. This bind of old and contemporary can be seen in the names of the songs such as Ploče, kazete, diskete… (Records, tapes, discs…), showing visible progressive advancement of technology which is applicable on records as well. The song Vesna 2 is very symbolic and in a way a sequel of the song Vesna (Ratna pjesma) from the band KUD Idijoti, in which the punk veteran invokes memories from his youth.

The cover of the album has been made according to Sale Veruda’s guidelines, and he also contributed to the visual identity of the whole release. The design and photography on the front cover are the work of Igor Zirojević.

Uncompromised punk rock is the essence of VD-i1. Even after ten years, the album represents a refreshment on the punk scene and is seeking for fans starting with the generation of the 70’s onwards. The admirers of domestic heavy sound who still believe that punk is not dead, but are equally open to music innovations, consider this album as a proof for their ears.
