Biography

Early career

Čuturilo started his career as a teenager, in 1976, playing as a guitarist for the band Kredit, which also featured Igor Popović (who would become frontman of Jakarta in 1981, vocals), Časlav Stanković (guitar), Srđan Đurić (bass guitar) and Milan Bubalo (drums). However, Kredit soon disbanded (Stanković, Đurić and Bubalo would later form Laki Pingvini), and in 1977 Čuturilo and Popović, with Srđan Đurić (bass guitar), Slobodan Đurišić (later would play for Mama Co Co, Točak Band, Spori Ritam Bend and YU grupa, drums) and Saša Lokner (later would play for Bajaga i Instruktori, keyboard), formed the band Paviljon.

After a year spent in Paviljon, Čuturilo became a member of Bicikl. With Bicikl Čuturilo recorded single with songs "Palanačka hronika" and "Dečja pesma", released in 1981. Čuturilo soon had to leave Bicikl due to his army obligations, and after he returned from the army in 1982, he joined Siluete. A year later Čuturilo moved to the band Zamba, with which he released the album Udarac nisko. In 1984 Zamba disbanded and Čuturilo accepted the invitation from Električni Orgazam leader Srđan Gojković to join Električni Orgazam on tour.

Riblja Čorba

In September 1984 Čuturilo became a member of Riblja Čorba. He and Vidoja "Džindžer" Božinović became new Riblja Čorba guitar duo, replacing Rajko Kojić and Momčilo Bajagić. Čuturilo remained a Riblja Čorba member until 1989, appearing on albums Istina, Osmi nervni slom, Ujed za dušu and Priča o ljubavi obično ugnjavi.

Solo

Čuturilo released his first solo album 9 lakih komada (9 Easy Steps) in 1988. He was the only album author, and played guitar and sung on the album recording. Bass guitarists Bodan Arsovski (of Leb i Sol) and Žika Jelić (of YU grupa), drummers Dragoljub Đuričić (of Leb i Sol) and Ivan Ranković (of Ekatarina Velika), keyboardist Saša Lokner (of Bajaga i Instruktori) and guitarist Vlada Negovanovuć (of Tunel) participated in the album recording. Mile Lojpur appeared as a guest musician in the song "Kad je Lojpur svirao" which is referring to himself. The album was well received and Čuturilo formed Laki Band (Easy Band) which featured Van Gogh member Zvonimir Đukić (guitar), Dragoljub Đuričić (drums) and Ruž member Dejan Grujić (bass guitar). With Laki Band Čuturilo recorded his second solo album, Raskršće (Crossroads) in 1989. Album was produced by Saša Habić, and, alongside Easy Band members, featured Laza Ristovski and Saša Lokner on keyboards and Dejan Cukić on backing vocals. During the same year Čuturilo wrote the music for the theatre play Najbolji ludi dan (The Best Crazy Day) which was set at the stage of Nova Gorica theatre. On September 14, 1989 Čuturilo officially left Riblja Čorba and formed the band Oblaci (The Clouds) which featured Nikola Čuturilo's brother Darko (keyboards), Zoran "Baki" Radovanović (drums), Dejan Grujić (bass guitar), and Saša Ranđelović (guitar). Čuturilo and Oblaci (under the Čutura & Oblaci moniker) released the album Rekom ljubavi (Down the River of Love) in 1991. The album was produced by Saša Habić and brought a number of radio hits: "Glorija", "Pustiću radio", "Reka ljubavi" and "Srećan put". Album featured Pera Joe, Jelena Galonić, Nenad Milosavljević, Dragi Jelić and Žika Jelić as guest musicians. In 1991 Čuturilo participated at the Retrospective Evening of the Belgrade Spring Festival, performing a cover of Oliver Dragojević's song "Molitva za Magdalenu" which was released on the album Beograde.

At the time Čutura & Oblaci went on the Rekom ljubavi tour, Yugoslav wars broke out, and in November 1991 Čuturilo went to London. In London Čuturilo performed mostly in clubs, playing with Paul Rodgers and Micky Moody, among others. In 1998 he recorded his fourth studio album I.D.. The album was recorded in London with David Duncan (bass guitar) and Neil Findlay (drums), produced in Belgrade by Vlada Negovanović, and released through Komuna Belgrade.

In 2006 Čutrilo released his fifth solo album Nemir (The Unrest), recorded with Dejan Grujić on bass guitar and Blagoje Nedeljković on drums. The album was produced by Block Out leader Nikola Vranjković and released through PGP-RTS.

He sung backing vocals on the album recording. He also appeared as the author of the lyrics on YU grupa's following album Ima nade. Once again, he wrote lyrics for six songs: "Zaboravi", "Divlja mašina", "Mornar", "Dunavom šibaju vetrovi", "Vodi me kući anđele" and "Moj stari band". On YU grupa's 1990 album Tragovi he was the author of all of the lyrics. Čuturilo wrote music for Dejan Cukić's 1989 album Zajedno. He wrote music for the song "Bez tebe" and wrote lyrics for the songs "Tvoje oči", "Letnje kiše" and "Ustani", but also participated in the writing of lyrics for the songs "Moja devojka", "Pruži mi ruke" and "Žute cipele".
