Lots and lots of girls were involved in the Greek rock scene during the 80s and 90s.
I will try to list here mostly the girls that played with punk, alternative, and new wave bands
cause if I include metal bands I will be fooled as this is not my specialty.
Now, lets go:
In 1989, the drummer Vivi Vourou and bass player Georgia Athanasiou formed a hard alternative band called Stigma 90.
It was a 5 piece band and only one member was male.
They released one album in 1994 with this line up.
Today their line up has change and Vivi Dourou remains the only girl in the band that released one more
album in 2006.
