Publishing and archiving project Guranje S Litice from Split, Croatia on February 11th 2012, as a symbolic act of support to the anti ACTA demonstrations across Croatia, released an integral 34 minute version of the live album performed by noise rock band Why Stakla from Osijek, Croatia. The band which was active from 1992 to 1998 recorded this live material on a concert that was held on April 19th 1996 in Ilirska Bistrica, Slovenia.
At the mixing desk at the time was probably the best producer of alternative music on the realm of former Yugoslavia - Bojan Babič Babo, who is also responsible for the remastering of this archive recording, recorded on only two channels.
At the beginning of 2012 the project came to an end, along with the graphics of Igor Hofbauer and cover design by Slobodan Alavanja and Igor Mihovilović, it was released in a digital format. On the explicit demand of former band members that the album should be free and that with the audio material that comes in the format that users want (flac, mp3, ogg, etc) provides the complete artwork in a printable format, no physical release of the album is planned.
Why Stakla are considered to be one of the best alter rock bands from the early/mid 90’s in Croatia and their two recorded albums with the key releases of independent publishing at the time (Kekere Aquarium, Lunatic, Helidon…), and this album brings songs from both albums with one cover song that was not included in their previous discography.
