Days Of Future Passed vol. 8

Every time I listen to these bands I feel like I was too naive back then.

I guess we were all a little naive…

The planet was always spinning on dirty money but back in those days we weren’t aware of that.  It’s been a long time since I last posted something from the Opticoacoustic Bomb, the VHS compilation that was released in the early 90’s.

I found another interesting vid on YouTube, with a little Villa 21 in the beginning (you can also watch them here) and two songs of the post-punk band Ypogia Trohia.

You can read about them here.

So, if you wanna watch Ypogia Trohia, be a little patient and watch them playing live somewhere in the very early 90’s.

It’s time now, for a video that finds Panx Romana performing live their track “To gramma (engl. The letter ελλ. Το γράμμα) at An club in the early ’90s.

The band gained a great number of followers and their releases sold a lot of thousands of copies becoming the most successfull Greek punk rock band.

They were mostly influced by the Ramones and the Clash and were usualy writing anti-militaristic/anti-war songs with Greek lyrics.

More informations about them, here.

The video is taken from the VHS compilation “Opticoacoustic Bomb” that was released in the early 90’s but lately they came back, playing mostly live and not recording.

The following video finds them playing live at No Budget Festival – Larissa during August 2008.

With the band  set on freeze during the mid 90’s King Julio, their bass player, found the chance to form the band Ache In Silence.

Ache in Silence was a four piece punk rock act with the following line up: King Julio-vocals, Giorgos Papadimitriou-guitar, Stefanos Betsalis-bass and Nikos Palatsoudis-drums.

The following video comes from the self titled CD album of Ache In Silence.

He also produced the 7″ singles, “Kick Inside/Closer to Me” of Honeydive and “Old Skin Virus” of the band, Surface.

Here is a video catching R.R. Hearse & S/M performing live at An Club in the late 80’s.

As I couldn’t specifically describe their sound when I posted the introduction to the “Opticoacoustic Bomb“.

I guess this will give you an idea.


R.R. Hearse (aka Lambros Tsamis) was jamming very often with the Ex Humans during the early 80’s ( click here for video ) and he also did the vocals for the Soldiers of Anarchy (later to be named Ex-Humans).


In the mid 90’s he formed the duet Love Exotics.

After some research, I discovered that Love Exotics released two tracks, “Sunday” and “Morning Lullabieson a cassette compilation, given for free with the fanzine Overdub in 1997.

The title of the compilation was “Obscurity – Discharge – Over“.

Two years later, an other Love Exotics track appeared on the limited CD compilation “Try A Little Sunshine“.

The track title was “Love Song“.

Lambros Tsamis was working for years by the nickname DJ Low-Fi.



Villa 21 appeared on the “Opticoacoustic Bomb” with two tracks, “(The Land Where the) Sun Never Shines” is one of them.

I spotted that the blog Tape Recorder wrote about their first two singles here

and Vertigo blogspot gives informations about their album “Man of Clayhere


You can read about their history on this past post of ours.

Someone made a profile of the band on myspace.

This is the link.

No Man’s Land performing the song “Afraid Of The Dark” live.
This is one of the two songs with which the band appeared on the Opticoacoustic Bomb compilation.

Blue Jeans opened the compilation with the track “Baby Blue Eyes” performing live on stage at the An Club.
I guess this must be during their sound check.

More informations about this VHS compilation you can find here.

Both bands were very active during the late 80’s/early 90’s.

I also posted infos regarding the No Man’s Land here.
If you are interested, you can buy their new album “Home in the Skyhere.
