Red Star Belgrade


 Bands with the same name as  football teams? Most will come up with St Etienne and at a push The Kaiser Chiefs.
But what of the only Serbian and ex-Yugoslav team ever to have won the European Cup (in 1991) Red Star Belgrade?
From Chapel Hill, North Carolina Red Star Belgrade were an alt country trio founded by one time rock critic Bill Curry
Four albums to their name  they have graced both the Loose and Blue Rose labels.
The second song is taken from Down to the Promised Land - 5 Years of Bloodshot Records. The fact that it will severely annoy fans of AC/DC is a welcome bonus.

  1. I know nothing about football teams, I'm afraid.

    I do, however, know that "I had an uncle who once played for Red Star Belgrade. He said, 'some things are really left best unspoken', but I prefer it all to be out in the open."

    1. And for a little while I think his touring band were called the Red Stars. Political, yes. Partial footy nod? Maybe.

  3. And not a band name, but a special mention for Dukla Prague Away Kit by HMHB...?
