Plug’n’ Play band was formed in Novi Sad, in November, 2002. Initial band members were guitarist/vocalist Goran Beg, bassist Zoran Mandić and drummer Predrag Novković (ex Porshe Lynn). Two months after the band had been formed, Vasil Tomov-Flipp was recruited as the band’s leading vocalist and Goran while retaining the responsibility of the guitarist, accepted the new role of the supporting vocalist. As the band members were becoming more acquainted with each other, they also became more musically attuned by playing mainly interpretations of popular rock songs. Plug’n’ Play had it’s debut in front of a live audience in Novi Sad Night Club Enter, in April 2003. The live performance, included interpretations of the bands such as Pearl Jam, The Cult, Neurotic Outsiders, Let 3 and Supergrass.

This live performance marked the end of the first phase of the band’s development. Consequently, the band decided to create its own music, which in essence was inextricably influenced by the worldly renowned aforementioned bands, including also Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, Tool and Faith No More.

In autumn 2003, due to differences in musical preconceptions between the band’s leading vocalist and the rest of the band members, Flipp decided to leave, which in turn slightly delayed musical productivity of the band. Nonetheless, the band continued working without a leading vocalist until February 2004, when Srđan Slankamenac -Slani (ex-Post Scriptum) joined the band as a new leading vocalist.

Slani’s arrival signaled the band’s third phase of development. This phase of progression has continued with no indication that the band’s development will subside at any level. In fact, after a period of rehearsals with the new vocalist, Plug’n’Play commenced with its live performances mostly in Novi Sad Night Clubs. The band with it’s new vocalist Slani, had its first concert as a part of manifestation named “Saberimo se Novosađani”, in NS Time club, on the 3rd of October 2004, after which the band had a series of live performances in all prominent nightclubs of Novi Sad.

In February 2005, Plug’n’Play recorded their first demo cd – ‘Plug-ins’ with three songs - ‘Plug’n’Play’, ‘Friend’ and ‘Angel’ (Massive Attack interpretation). The demo songs were recorded at ‘Zid’ studio in S. Kamenica and at ‘Digital tone works’ studio in Rumenka by the producer Dragan Alimpijević – Pik (Red Cloud, Compressor).

In September 2005, the bend recorded a music clip for the song Plug ’n’ Play. During late 2005 and early in 2006, this music clip was played on numerous local and national TV stations, as well as on the MTV Adrija.

The next music clip for the song “Friend” had a premiere at the beginning of June, 2006.

In the meantime, Plug’n’Play band appeared several times as the special guest in the concerts of popular rock bends. Some of these concerts include Del Arno Band in Trema Club, dedicated to disadvantaged children (Dečije selo, Sremska Kamenica), on the 22nd of November 2005. Also, Plug’n’Play performed live in front of more than 600 people, as the special guest of Block Out bend, in Gradilište Club on the 1st of April, 2006. Further, Plug ’n’ Play participated at the reinstated musical festival “String” in Subotica, at Palic, on the 18th of August, 2006.

At the end of September 2006, Plug’n’Play played on a tour named “Days of Vojvidina in Istra” in Pula, Pazin and Buzet (Croatia), along with bands such as Zbogom Brus Lee and UMT.
