Χωρίς Περιδέραιο - Βότκα

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'') .

Berlin Brides - Princess in distress

Berlin Brides are an Athens-based duo comprising of singer/lyricist Natasha Giannaraki and keyboardist/composer Marilena Orfanou. They play an explosive mix of electro, punk & power pop and are renown for their caustic lyrics and electrifying live performances. They have toured all over Greece and have played alongside CocoRosie, Kap Bambino, Jessie Evans, and at Ejekt festival (Athens, 2009) with Subways, Klaxons, Jarvis Cocker and Röyksopp. They performed in the UK for the first time in June 2009 at Buffalo Bar, London, as winners of the Velvet Magazine competition. It was awarded to them by Artrocker Magazine, which labeled their self-released EP Failure To Wank as one of the two best releases of 2008. That performance granted them a slot for the New Bands Stage at Offset Festival in September 2009. In October 2010 they performed at Indie Week festival in Toronto, Canada. Their debut single, Rejection Junkie / Off The Rack, was released in June 2010 and their debut album, Modern Celibacy, in October 2010 by Inner Ear.

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.

Selofan - Μαυσωλείο

Electro-minimal-dark-synth-cold wave duo from Athens, Greece.
Published in Song of 2day
It’s Autumn, 2015 A.D., and in Greece there is insufficient cause for celebration. The country is in economic ruin, and the natives are restless. The Volos tribe known as BAZOOKA is miffed to say the least, yet they say the most. They deliver the verbiage in their mother tongue, poisonous and pissed, for the duration of their scathing second LP “Useless Generation.” These eleven tracks of turbulent, psychedelic punk brilliantly commandeer the unique sense of youthful contempt of what surely must be the current global vortex of corruption and frustration, yet BAZOOKA sallies forth with dutiful abandon.The sessions that produced “Useless Generation” have yielded a sonic result that would humble the mighty Zeus. Unnerving banshee howls drench the soundscape, surreal, and at times, miraculously humorous. Often stiff, militant and urgent, this newest effort makes no qualms with slathering a syrupy dose of synthesizers bending around the crest of the lunar rising, utilizing reverb soaked woodwinds that spiral down from a 5th flight, and employing totemic canter handed down through the millennia while remaining constantly searing.

HAD & LEG - Tie

Greek freak-rock has finally slithered its way into the Black Gladiator stable after years of us trying to keep everything as America-centric – as the birthplace of rock’n’roll – as possible. Sometimes you just glom onto a sound that stimulates your cochlea in such a manner that its origin becomes as meaningless as rock’n’roll itself. Athens duo HAND & LEG is the unit that has popped our intercontinental cherry with their debut, self-titled album of throbbing arthouse post-punk, sonically akin to the more stripped-down elements of the French glue-wave scene. Iro (f: bass guitar) and Stelios (m: drums) bleed gross distortion over grinding sex beats with precision, alternating vox on tributes to unlikely American folk gods Dave van Ronk and Lester Bangs, while channeling the traditional, Minoan minimal music of Crete to complete their primitive manifesto: The Kritikal Beatdown.

Useless Eaters - Out In The Night

Welcome to the latest USELESS EATERS installment in the Slovenly Recordings repertoire. Following the unrestrained pummel of 2014’s “Desperate Living” 7inch, and the strange cohesiveness of their “Singles: 2011-2014” collection, we present you with this stark and weird new “Temporary Mutilation” five track 10inch EP. Featuring the instrumental prowess of drummer Miles Luttrell from future Slovenly legends SCRAPER, Brendan Hagarty on bass, and recorded by Kelley Stoltz (Third Man Records fame) and mastered by Mikey Young of Australia’s TOTAL CONTROL, this release especially exemplifies singer / guitarist / leader Seth Sutton’s growth as a sonic craftsman – less concerned with “punk” as a sound while inevitably remaining PUNK, devoting himself to the development of unique noise. The title track’s skeletal arrangement and oddball meter has been embellished with haunting vibrations via phones of the saxo & xylo variety, electronic rhythmic units have been employed in “Poison Dart”, and the entirety of the EP bleeds with Sutton’s trademark horrific sci-fi imagery and aggressive riffs and delivery.
