Noise Promotion Company

11 Feb

Chrysa Pantazi asked for some Noise Promotion Company and I can asure you, its very difficult to find informations about them.

noise_promotion2In 1984 a new band appeared in Thessaloniki.
The name of the band was Noise Promotion Company and for the next few years will be established as one
of the best live acts of the town.
Their line up was Alex Apostolakis – drums, George “Banduk” Apostolakis – vocals and guitar (he played xylophone too later)
and Thodoros Kondouris – bass.
Playing mainly a mixture of post punk and art rock with some funk elements, they were always experimenting on stage
trying to explore new styles and sounds.

Their first album, “Silence” was released in 1986.

Like most of the Greek bands, they remained a hidden treasure for years.
