Đekić, Velid. Red! River! Rock!: riječka rock scena 60ih (The rock scene of Rijeka in the 1960s), 2013. Publication
Velid Đekić's book Red! River! Rock! deals with the Rijeka rock scene during 1960s. Đekić comprehensively presents the performers, dance halls, composers, instrument makers, disc-jockeys and photographers who formed the rock scene. The book testifies to the fact that young people in Rijeka were pioneers of rock 'n' roll not only in Yugoslavia but among other socialist states in Europe as well. Although Rijeka was in a monolithic one-party state, rock 'n' roll was a window to the West for the city’s youth.
The book shows that thanks to rock 'n' roll, young people expanded their horizons through a different form of entertainment than those who propagated communist authority and openly defied the imposed framework. Ultimately, the book functions as a sort of musical lexicon because it provides extensive information about the line-ups of bands, the years of their foundation and dissolution, repertoires, popularity and song-writing.
