In this period he joined SEDEM SVETLOBNIH LET who were soon to change name into Buldožer. In 1975 with his band Buldožer made quite a big draft in former Yugoslavia concerning the term rock-music. After leaving Buldožer in 1979, with later groups - ZLATNI ZUBI (Golden teeth), MARJANOV ČUDNI ZAJEC (Marjan's Strange Rabbit), BELI ČRNCI (White Negroes), JAVNA VAJA (Official Exercise) managed to stay "under the ground". He built an image of a cynical, unexpected and extravagant-prone performer who used to appear on stage in a wheelchair, burn his hair and beard, make acrobatics and tell hilarious and funny jokes in front of audience bursting in laugh. During the 1980s his noteworthy releases included EP "Parada" in 1981 and LP "Svinjam dijamante" with the group MARJANOV ČUDNI ZAJEC in 1985. With the band STRELNIKOFF he recorded an album in 1994, which included several covers of old BULDOŽER songs.
He is living in Koper, Slovenia, where he was the director of "Mladinski in kulturni center - M&KC" (Youth Cultural Centre). This is where many young creative rock bands were given opportunities to perform. In recent years he has been active in politics as the president of NGO "Društvo prijateljev zmernega napredka" (The Society of Friends of Moderate Progress") and as candidate for the mayor's office in Koper. Brecelj's music can be described as singer/songwriter style (vocal and guitar) with avant-garde approach. His lyrics are bitter, cynical and full of humour and social commentary.
One can imagine a cross between Frank Zappa, Tom Waits, krautrock, punk and RIO. Essential albums for listening are "Cocktail" (1974) and "Svinjam dijamante" (1985). by Sead S.
