A year later they released their debut album, using Greek lyrics, that was titled “Aples Istories” (engl. Simple Stories gr. “Απλές Ιστορίες”) and in 1994 they appeared in the BAM International Festival in Barcelona.
The band signed a contract with the Greek indie label Warehouse Records to release the EP “Piso Ap ton Ilio” (engl. Behind the Sun gr. Πίσω απ’ τον Ήλιο) in 1996.
Warehouse Records released also the album “To Deftero Amartima” (engl. The second sin gr. Το Δεύτερο Αμάρτημα) a year later.
Their last album was released in 2000 and was titled “Katastasi Anagkis” (engl. State of Emergency gr. Κατάσταση Ανάγκης).
Most of the band members formed the band D-Volume in 2007 and already released an album.
“Rock Palais” was one of the most important places for the Greek bands in the late 80s-early 90s.
Aris Psychas (ex member of the Drops) is playing the rhythm guitar on this track.
Simeonidou recently formed the band Terra Libera situated at Syros island.
This duo never released a full length album but they took part in several Greek compilations till 1999.
You can read about Coti K. and Makis Faros in past articles.
Papaioannou founded a record label called Elfish Records.
The band released a lot of demos and tapes till 2001.
The four piece band Kinonika Apovlita (engl. Social Waste gr.Κοινωνικά Απόβλητα) were actually the band of Yiannis Kolovos, co-editor of “Stis Skies Tou B-23” fanzine.
They already had a 7” split EP released in 1989 titled “Retous Metamodernus”.
They were on the a side while Eitilop Pots were on the b side.
I am almost sure that they released an album during the 90s.
In case somebody wants to let me know, I would be much obliged.
Some bands continued releasing albums and singles and some were left with participations to compilations like this one.
There wasn’t any major or indie record label out there willing to release their stuff, so the fanzines took over.
To some bands that was a good start.
To some others, that was it.
