Mavres Comodies

04 May

Michalis Galaios is not unknown to the Greek underground rock audience.

Since 1989 he was the leader of the Greek post-punk band Erevos, writing the songs, the lyrics and playing the guitar parts for their three albums.

He joined later the band Lost Bodies as a bass player for several years.

Lately Galaios has his personal project again, Mavres Comodies (engl. Black Comedies) dealing with electronic experimental soundscapes that come from the darkest corners of the soul.

For two years he was writing music on scripts and poetry by Allen Ginsberg, Arthur Rimbaud, Gustave Flaubert, Costas Kariotakis, Nikos Kazantzakis and others.

Yesterday, May 3rd 2010, Mavres Comodies had their first gig at Camelot coffee-bar in Athens.

With the guitar in his hands and a lap top in frond of him, Galaios uncovered his experimental project which sometimes took me to the days of the album “My life in the Bush of Ghosts” and some other times reminded me of the Residents, Japan, Robert Fripp

For the next hour, Marina Danezi took over the microphone while black and white short movies behind her were creating a haunting atmosphere.

I am still working on this project” Galaios mentioned a little after the show.

There will be a full band on stage in a few months but I want to put some final touches on some details that have to do with the project’s live performance”.
