New Wave/Synth Pop band formed in Athens, Greece.Το συγκρότημα ''Χωρίς Περιδέραιο'' ήταν μια τριμελής μπάντα, από τις πρώτες new wave της ελληνικής σκηνής της δεκαετίας του '80. Όλα τα τραγούδια τους είναι με ελληνικό στίχο, τον οποίο και έγραφε ο Νίκος Αγγελής με σαφή επιρροή από τον υπερρεαλισμό. Η ονομασία του γκρουπ ''Χωρίς Περιδέραιο'' έγινε με αφορμή ένα τραγούδι που είχανε γράψει, όπου όμως δεν μπήκε σε κανέναν δίσκο τους αλλά παιζόταν στα live του συγκροτήματος.Τον Δεκέμβριο του 1983 κυκλοφόρησε η πρώτη δισκογραφική δουλειά του γκρουπ με τίτλο ''Άνωση''. Ήταν ένα επτάιντσο βινύλιο, με δύο τραγούδια, όπου κυκλοφόρησε από από την "Art Nouveau" σε 350 αντίτυπα. Τον Οκτώβριο του 1983 είχαν ηχογραφηθεί αυτά τα δυο κομμάτια, που ήταν τα "Άνωση" και "Το Χρώμα Και Το Σχήμα", στο στούντιο "Cosmosound". Το εξώφυλλο του επτάιντσου "Άνωση" είχε επιμεληθεί ο εκκεντρικός ζωγράφος Δημήτρης Γέρος.Το 1985 κυκλοφόρησαν τον πρώτο τους ολοκληρωμένο δίσκο όπου είχε τίτλο "Χορός Για Μουσική". Ο δίσκος αυτός ηχογραφήθηκε στο "The Mustes-Sound Studio". Ο δίσκος περιλαμβάνει εννιά νέα κομμάτια του γκρουπ, τα οποία και κυκλοφόρησαν από την ανεξάρτητη εταιρεία ''Λαιστρυγόνα'' σε δίσκο βινυλίου. Αυτή ήταν η πρώτη κυκλοφορία της ανεξάρτητης τότε εταιρείας Λαιστρυγόνα. Στο δίσκο ''Χορός Για Μουσική'', εκτός από τα τρία μέλη του γκρουπ συμμετείχαν και οι παρακάτω μουσικοί: Γιάννης Ντρενογιάννης κιθάρα (ex "Μagic de Spell", "Psychomafia", "Cpt Neφος" κ.α.), Γιώργος Δρακόπουλος πλήκτρα (''Moist Device'') και Στέφανος Λαρετζάκης τύμπανα (''Moist Device'') .

Were originally formed by Apostolis & Valisia in November of 2008. Their sound and lineup has been through several experimentations and changes until March of 2010. Their music is influenced by post-punk and new wave bands, enriched with shoe gaze elements and experimental electronics. Vasilis (guitar) joined the band in June of 2009, Menis (analog synths, drum machines, eletronics) and Andreas (bass) followed in March of 2010.Ο ήχος των Phoenix Catscratch φανερώνεται από το πρώτο άκουσμα, σταθερά και πειθαρχημένα. Οι δραματικοί ρυθμικοί στροβιλισμοί του death punk και οι σκοτεινές minimal wave παρεμβολές, χτίζονται γύρω από το ταίριασμα των φωνών του Apostoli και της Valisia. Οι στίχοι είναι η σκοτεινή και διεστραμμένη σήμανση για την πορεία κάθε κομματιού, κάθε μεθυσμένης απαισιόδοξης πορείας προς την καταστροφή. Xmal Deutschland, Bauhaus, Christian Death, Martin Dupont, Virgin Prunes. Χωρίς ενοχές και εγωπάθειες, οι επιρροές είναι παντού ο darkwave προσανατολισμός ξεκάθαρος, τα στοιχεία του Nectars & Wrinkles που θα σε κάνουν να το πάρεις στα σοβαρά βρίσκονται σε όλα αυτά τα γνωστά και άγνωστα συστατικά του. Το ερημωμένο μελανόχρωμο τοπίο αρχίζει να ξεδιπλώνεται από το εναρκτήριο Faces are lying, bodies are dying. Η φωνή του Apostoli προειδοποιεί για τον κίνδυνο, της Valisia για την ελκυστική μορφή του, και αυτή η εναλλαγή τους γίνεται εμμονή σε όλα τα κομμάτια.

Theodore is a Greek multi-instrumentalist, composer and performer. He fuses classical composition with electronic elements, to create beautifully atmospheric and often cinematic songs. He uniquely combines this together with his influences, from Pink Floyd and Radiohead to a schooling in piano and traditional Greek folk music. In the fall of 2017, Theodore performed at Live at Heart in Örebro, Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg and completed a tour in Spain, Germany, France and the UK. His future plans include shows at Eurosonic Noorderslag in January, SXSW in March, 2018, and the release of his next album on United We Fly.

After touring together Hot Chip asked to remix their single "TV Friend", and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age has covered "Space to Rent". WhoMadeWho gained further popularity when they headlined the Benicàssim festival in 2007 after a delay caused scheduled headliners, Klaxons, to arrive too late to play their set. On 21 February 2014, they played with Arisa the song Cuccurucucu, a tribute to Franco Battiato, at Festival of Sanremo 2014, Italy.

Family are an English rock band, active from late 1966 to October 1973, and again since 2013 for a series of live shows. Their style has been characterised as progressive rock, as their sound often explored other genres, incorporating elements of styles such as folk, psychedelia, acid, jazz fusion and rock and roll. The band achieved recognition in the United Kingdom through their albums, club and concert tours and appearances at festivals.[ The band's rotating membership throughout its relatively short existence led to a diversity in sound throughout their different albums. Family are also often seen as an unjustly forgotten act, when compared with other bands from the same period and have been described as an "odd band loved by a small but rabid group of fans".Although most of their recordings were issued in the US, the band never achieved any appreciable success there.
