The month of May has brought us warmer weather, longer days, and much gothier nights.
New Zero God ushered in the the start of the month with their performance at PassPort Club in the heart of Piraeus. The event was an open-door St. Paul High School’s Class of 1990 reunion fundraiser to benefit the Thiva-Lamia Women’s Prison. The stage was set for fellow schoolmates’ bands to entertain while raising money for a worthy cause.
New Zero God kicked off the show. Drummer, Dimitris “Sidheog” Steves, hammered skins for his classmates with songs like “Kiss the Witch“, “Bang Bang“, and The Flowers Of Romance classic, “Kashmir“, which was originally performed by New Zero God singer Mike Pougounas during his Flowers days. Fellow NZG/FOR bassist Harris Stavrakas brought home the medley with his signature style while Michalis Christou strummed like no other guitarist before him.
The following clip is from that evening.
While we’re on the topic of “Kashmir”, Cassandra’s Castle of Nightbreed Radio [UK] has announced their May 10 through June 9, 2011 schedule lineup, which includes “Kashmir”. The next show will air on Tuesday, May 10 at 6 PM/UK | 8 PM/GR (repeated at Midnight/UK | 2 AM/GR) and will run for four weeks.
A live review was posted today at Dominion Magazine [UK] on New Zero God’s Sunday night performance at PassPort Club by the magazine’s newest correspondent, Thanos. With all the focus on New Zero God and each NZG members years of contributions to the music scene, it was decided that a Greek journalist should be brought into the folds to let viewers know what else might be happening in this little country of ours.
Thanos came up with THIS first part of the history of the Greek “dark” scene.
And since we’re on the subject of England, we should also mention that Dominion’s Radio Chart was released yesterday. On it you will find Nexus, the prior band of Mike Pougounas and Dimitris Steves. It is a huge honor to see songs of the past brought back to life in a country so far from our footsteps.
