The dreamy pop single “Grotesque” was released in 1994 and received heavy rotation on radiostations.
This created a number of followers for the band, who opened the concerts for Dodgy, Giant Sand and Tindersticks.
Common Sense were actually formed in September 1989 and apart from this 7″ single they released the album “Sun Comes Up“.
The line up on this release was: Tatiana Stavroulaki – Vocals, Christos Zoubas – guitars, Christos Alexopoulos – keyboards (later on he went solo – check previous) Sakis Birbilis – bass and George Karanikolaou – drums.
George Priniotakis (member of the band Wasteland) plays additional guitars.
The track on the b side is titled “Child’s play“.
After the release of the album, the band was on hold for a few years but they came back during the ’00s.
They played live with Marc Almond in 2007 and supported Echo & The BunnyMen in Liverpool a few months later.
Common Sense are about to release an EP titled “Time stood still“.
Tatiana Stavroulaki joined the Savage Republic on stage for a couple of songs on their gig in Greece during 2008.
