DEMOLITION GROUP formed in 1982 as Gastarbaitrs. They played their own variation of white funk. As Gastarbajtrs they released two LP's in former Yugoslavia.
In 1985 transformed their music into a fusion of heavy metal, funk and electronic. They renamed in DEMOLITION GROUP and played many important European festivals such as SAN REMO rock '88, BARCELONA BIENAL '87, BERLIN INDEPENDENCE Days ('89), DRUGA GODBA ('86), Carrot Budapest and others. In 1986 they were signed for the Italian label CRUISIN' HIARA Records (Modena). With Hiara they released two records, which were promoted in around Europe.

DEMOLITION GROUP's music is an energetic fusion of electronic and acoustic rhytm, rock and funk guitars, neurotic saxophone and arhaic vocals. "They look and sound like Doctor Feelgood after 18 pints having a jam with Killing Joke's roadies" (NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS, 1994)
Various members of DEMOLITION GROUP are also evident in the work of bands such as LAIBACH, BORGHESIA and many others.

Honouring a decade of their music activity in 1993 they released a album "BAD GAG 2" and a tribute album "Demolition Group plays Gastarbaiters", which immediately became an underground hit record.
Two albums and the appearance on the compilation of KRAFTWERK remakes Trans Slovenia Express (MUTE RECORDS, London), again confirmed the band as the first class of Slovenian contemporary music.

Album "DEEP TRUE LOVE" (released in 1995) is a result of cooperation between Demolition Group and the famous Slovene theatre - Theatre MLADINSKO. The band wrote music for three plays directed by Matjaz Pograjc (founder of BETONTANC theatre).
"Deep True Love" was voted the RECORD OF THE YEAR in Slovenia and DEMOLITION GROUP were declared as SLOVENIA'S MOST IMPORTANT BAND IN 1995. Their videos "In yuor eyes" and "You Never Cry" gained No.1 position on National TV top 10.

Album "NEOVANGELIJ" released in 1998, accompanied with two singles and two videos. Several reviews stated the album as "The best Slovenian album of the decade".
Album was also awarded in category of 100 most important albums in region of former Yugoslavija.

In January 1999, DEMOLITION GROUP presented a feature film "DARK ANGELS" (Temni angeli usode, directed by Saso Podgorsek).

In the 2001 DEMOLITION GROUP released album BIC LUC+UPANJE, that presents a move away from many of the basic principles used in music bussines.

In 2011, ten years after releasing their last album and almost thirty years after starting their work on the edge of rock music, Demolition Group released album PLANET STARCEV (Planet of the old Men).
The new album, which sounds even more powerful and unique as ever before proves that Demolition Group belong to the sheer top of the independent production of rock music in Slovenija.
The idea of »neo-liberal religion govern by the Old men« straped with distinctive design of J.E.S.U.S. AJAKS created the most powerfull Demolition Group album ever.

In 2012 as a compliment to all their faithful fans Demolition Gropup released double live CD Na Živo!. Album is documentary recording of their live show - no polishing, loud and wild.

At 14.th of maj 2015 last album Zlagano sonce was released in most famous Slovenian club Kino Šiška in Ljubljana.

Till the last drop of sweat, till the last drop of blood.
