PLJ Band - Armageddon (@256kb)




In 1982 PLJ Band released "Armageddon", an album considered to be among the best ever produced in Greece. The lyrics were inspired by the Apocalypse of John, just as in the legendary "666" by Aphrodite's Child about 11 years earlier. Never the less the lyrics were found blasphemous and offensive to god and the christian orthodox church and the copies had to be destroyed.. No comments about that. Some of them survived though and right now the original copy is very rare. There's been a cd release and a vinyl reissue by Anazitisi Records though.

plj band

PLJ Band consisted of Laurentis Macheristas (lead vox, 12-string guitar & keyboards), Antonis Mijelos (lead & acoustic guitars), Pavlos Kikrilis (rhuthm & acoustic guitars), Jimmy Vasalakos (bass, backing vox) and Tolis Skamajouras (drums, percussion). They later reached commercial success under the name "Termites", when they began writing their lyrics in greek. The lead singer Laurentis Macheritsas started a solo career in 1989, after the band's breakup.

Ejekt 2009

Duffy's appearance in this years Ejekt fest is canceled..
Not that anyone cared that much. 
The people who organize the festival (and other upcoming gigs) released an announcement that was at least hard to understand, blaming people etc.

..whatever!

Update: The people of Ejekt fest will continue complaining and Duffy will finally still appear live in Greece, according to the rumor.. It's just that she will appear in another festival!! The Rockwave festival! Long live the greek mythology, with its clashes of titans!! I'll sit back, relax and enjoy the "fight"..

..whatever x 2!

The Subways



The Subways will play live in Greece.
They will perform 2 shows. One in Athens, in Kyttaro club on 19.03 and one in Thessaloniki, in Principal theater the next day, 20.03.
Ticket prices have not been announced yet. I assume it's gonna be something like €30 or something.
I wouldn't say i'm a great fan or anything, but i'll think twice since they've got a fairly cute girl playing bass..

All greek to mix

I took some time off "that novel i've been workin' on" and decided to prepare another mix, with -let's say- some kind of a "theme" this time.

It's a mix of songs by greek bands and artists that are currently active, for promotional reasons mainly.

I gathered almost everything i could get my hands on and put together a compilation of tunes that i fancy, up to this day.
The only connection between them is that they have been released, roughly, from mid '00s till now.
No particular music genres or styles.
There is stuff by other acts that's left out coz it couldn't fit in this compilation lengthwise or coz i yet don't have access to them.

Chairlift - Does You Inspire You (@v0 vbr)


Swathed as it is in the kind of ’80s arrangements of flutes and chiming guitars that have rarely been allowed beyond Carol Decker’s lushest, most velveteen fantasies, this album is an open goal to accusations of trend-following revivalism. But, like Ladyhawke’s debut, the sheer quality of songwriting justifies any retrospective leanings they may have.

Does You Inspire You is an inspirited debut that proves Brooklyn is still the indie king.

Gangbangin'



After "Dogtown & Z-Boys" and "Riding Giants" (huge movies on my opinion), Z-boy Stacy Peralta is going away from themes such skateboarding and surfing and he's directing the documentary "Crips and Bloods: Made in America". It's a film about the two infamous L.A. gangs. 
Forest Whitaker is the narrator and NBA superstar Baron Davis is a member of the production team.
Dunno if the movie is going to be released in Greece (probably not), but is already out in theaters in the U.S.
Here are some linx for further info on the movie, the Crips, the Bloods and street gangs in general.


Photobucket

And since this blog is about the music, i might as well add that members of the two gangs got together, auditioned and finally released a record called "Banging On Wax", as Bloods & Crips, in 1993. The following year they released another record, "Banging On Wax 2... The Saga Continues".
The second one is not that good, so i'll only provide y'all with "Banging On Wax" (@ 192kbps).

It's just another average west coast gangsta rap record, with late '70s and '80s funk samples etc.. Only these guys first killed and then sang, not the other way round..
Funny useless info: I believe the label that released the records is called Quality (ha ha).
