Atomsko sklonište is a Croatian rock band from Pula founded in 1976. The first line-up included Boško Obradović (founder and leader), Sergio Blažić (vocal solo), Saša Datić (drums), Dragan Gužvan (guitar) and Bruno Langer (bass). They are later joined by Eduard Kancelar (keyboard).
They brought a completely new approach to Yugoslavian music with their aggressiveness in playing and with their texts, scene appearance and art photos that presented them to the public.
They sometimes performed surrounded by barbed wire, in torn clothes, with fireworks and sometimes they would enrich the scenography with hundreds of opened umbrellas (as a symbol of protection). None of them would say anything during the concerts, no song announcements, nor thanking the audience. One of their most significant performances to was at the Boom festival in Novi Sad in 1977.
They signed their first contract with the TV station RTV Ljubljana in the seventies, and their first album came out in 1978. It was one of the most noted debut albums of ex-yu rock. The album shocked the critics with its unusual concept and a completely different world view. The texts were something up to then unknown, but afterwards too. The songwriter Boško Obradović presented the public with a plethora of cataclysmic lyrics. He covered social, political and antiwar themes.
Their biggest performance was in Belgrade in 1981 when they appeared in front of some 60000 people as the bearers of the first day programme of the 2 day long festival “Hipodrom ‘81”
Their most sold album is “Mentalna higijena” released in 1982. The same year, they won the “best band” award.
In 1985, the band participated in the international humanitarian action “Band Aid”.
Their later years are marked with trying to break through to the foreign market, and for that they recorded three albums in English. They managed to enter the American “Top 100” list.
In their long musical career, they played as the supporting group for Motorhead, Uriah Heep and Whitesnake.
During the years, the line-up changed (sometimes because of the death of a member), and its current members are Bruno Langer (vocals, bass guitar), Ranko Svorcan (guitar) and Stjepan Bobić (drums).
