The band was officially formed on 1st May 1987 by guitarist Nebojsa Simeunovic Sabljar (Sabre-man), guitarist and vocalist Stojan Radicevic, bassist Dusko Milojevic and drummer Dejan Milojevic - Kid. Sabljar spent his childhood in Benghazi in Libya and he described it in the autobiographical song "Pesak Bengazija" (The sand of Benghazi). His great grandfather Luka Simeunovic had been wounded in Salonica Front, at Kajmakcalan after close combat. He had taken the sword (saber) which wounded him away with him to Belgrade. Sabljar carried around the sword under his topcoat when he was a teenager because he was in conflict with nazi-skins. That is how he got his nickname. Nebojsa Simeunovic Sabljar started his career in punk band "Unbelievable Disgusting".
