In the beginning of 1989, Sasha Jovanovic with Tomislav Bozovic (of The Cool Shakes) founded in Belgrade a popular rockabilly band called Rock Therapy. The band's existence lasted for five years. During that time period it went on tour through ex-Yugoslavia, Italy, Austria and Switzerland (where the band broke-up in 1994). In 1996, Sasha Jovanovic establish a new band called Mr. Blue, and released one LP record, "Sa druge strane ogledala".

Right after shooting the video for "Lepe zene prolaze kroz grad", the band split up. In November of 1998, on a party in Belgrade, under the influence of Milan and Sandra from Devil Records, and after listening to some new records (RHH, Batmobile, Demented are Go, Mad Sin, Peacocks etc.), the musical orientation of Sasha Jovanovic expanded from plain rockabilly to other styles of music such as ska, punk, surf, and psychobilly. That same year, in Greenwood Studio Jovanovic met Aleksandar Simic Sima and Andreja Milosevic, where they established demo band called Cikine Bombone. Soon after, the band had the first gig with URGH in SKC, Belgrade. In January of 1999, with a slight help from Radio-television B92, they recorded thier first LP, "Flaming Dynamite", and that is where the band gets its new name, Grandpa Candys, inspired by a late '60 comic book character - Grandpa Jim Candys. That same year the first video was shot, for the song "Vampirella", produced by Devil Records.

The band also played several shows in Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Because of NATO intervention in 1999, the band temporarily stopped playing. In 2001, the Grandpa Candys released "Flaming Dynamite" for ITMM Records, and that same year appeared on the Raucous Records' compilation "Psychobilly Freakout" with the song "My little sister". In 2002, the band released its second album called "Captain Crash" for Active Time Records and shot the video for "Psycho in New Orleans", and played on Belgrade's Beer Fest. During 2005, they recorded their third album called "666.000 miles on the wrong way", and shot the video for the song "Paralyzed". It also should be noted that the band (Grandpa Candys) is mostly influenced by Misfits, 7 Seconds and The Stray Cats. (Sasha Jovanovic - Jovandeka).
