Peter Murphy with David J -Athens 2018

pic by Vasilis Kosmidis

It’s a few minutes after the end of “Peter Murphy 40 Years of Bauhaus Ruby Celebration Featuring David J”and we are in Athens, Greece having a beer with guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite while the roadies are packing the gear.

They are flying to the next city tomorrow for the last gig of the European leg of the tour and he will be happy to spend the holidays back home.

The American tour will follow in January so a few days of rest will refill their batteries…

It was a good crowd tonight” he says to his old pal Andi Sex Gang.

How many people do you recon were there tonight, Mike?” Andi asks me…

I look around as there are some people swiping the floor gathering trash into a small hill “I estimate a good 3000…” I reply.

It’s been 35 years since I saw Bauhaus on stage and for sure tonight’s setlist was as great as it was in 1983.

It was a trip down memory lane for every fan of the band.

Round 10.30, the first notes of “Double Dare” made the audience go wild and it was followed by all the tracks of the first Bauhaus album, “In The Flat Field“.

The light show was outstanding and the band was in high spirits.

I turned to Sex Gang Children manager Lara Mcelligott, who was behind me taking photos and shooting videos, and asked her to give me some of them.

Murphy’s baritone voice started singing about the bats that “have left the bell tower” taking us back to 1979 when every record label turned down their “Bela Lugosi’s dead” except from Pete Stennett, owner of Small Wonder, a record store in Walthamstow, London, that believed in it and released it as a 12” EP.

David J, who earlier this year re-released the pivotal ‘Crocodile Tears and The Velvet Cosh’ LP on Glass Modern,  stands as a rock, perfectly weaving the sound of his bass guitar with the sounds of Marc Slutsky’s drums.

Slutsky is perfect on “She’s in Parties”. He is a very experienced drummer and has toured with Third Eye Blind, the Goo Goo Dolls, and Vertical Horizon.  He recorded two albums with Splender; 1999’s “Halfway Down the Sky” produced by Todd Rundgren, and “To Whom it May Concern” in 2001.

He has also toured and/or recorded with Kylie Minogue, Lou Gramm (Foreigner), Mickey Thomas (Jefferson Starship),Todd Rundgren, and Pink to name but a few.

Mark Gemini Thwaite nails it on “Passion of Lovers”. I knew how good he was since my band opened for The Mission UK back in 2000 when Mark (aka MGT) was playing the guitar for them. He has been strumming his guitar for Spear of Destiny, Tricky, Gary Numan, toured with Ricky Warwick and The Fighting Hearts and also recorded with Primitive Race.

What can one say about Peter Murphy?

His latest solo studio album, “Lion” that was produced by Martin Glover, aka Youth, came out in 2014 (“Wild Birds Live Tour” and “Remixes from Lion” followed in 2015 while his fourth solo live album “Bare-Boned And Sacred” recorded at New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge in April 2016, came out in 2017).

He shared the stage with Trent Reznor, founded Dali’s Car with the late Mick Karn and he is as cool as he was when I first saw him back in 1983, but now he is more mature.

When he is on stage, he looks like he is at home…

Don’t miss the opportunity to see them playing live.

You won’t believe how quick 90 minutes can pass…

I’d like to add here that the Greek heavy psychedelic band The Steams opened the show, playing for about 30 minutes, tracks from their debut album “Wild Ferment”.

New Zero God: new video and gigs

New Zero God is back with the video of their track “Shut Up”.

“Shut Up” is taken from their latest album “Short Tales & Tall Shadows” that came out in 2016.

The video was directed and edited by singer Mike Pougounas, in the DIY spirit of the previous ones of the band, “My Reaper” and “Garden of Mazes”.

We had some good laughs while shooting the video. After all, this is what its all should be about… Having a good time and taking the message out to the world…” Mike says…

The band is playing live this coming weekend at the city of Volos and Thessaloniki.

You can catch them playing live on Friday 3 February at the Argoriders Harley Club – Volos Clubhouse.
The show is only for members, friends and supporters, doors open 22:00 and the entrance is free.

%ce%b1%cf%86%ce%b9%cf%83%ce%b1-%ce%b2%ce%bf%ce%bb%ce%bf%cf%85

The next day, the band will travel to Thessaloniki for a gig with Remain In Light at the Silver Dollar.
With New Zero God in a good mood, free entrance and Remain In Light playing material from their new album “Splinters In Arcadia” its satisfaction guaranteed…
