ABOP is a Croatian acronym for the phrase “The afterparties are better than parties” ­ the legend says the band was founded after a quite disasterous party in a cellar. The players gathered, took on the two drum sets, a bass and fired away. The atmosphere was better than during the party itself and the concept was born.

Two drummers upfront makes an attractive sight, all the while an unbelievable amount of energy is being transmitted to the dancers. An audio­visual delicatesse, as the punters claim and recommend. Combining live instruments with motifs of electronic club music, they play it rough, psychedelic and danceable, sometimes autoironic. The members are top class players, coming from famous Croatian pop bands: Elemental, Pips, Chips & Videoclips, Mayales, Sinestet.
