Venus In Furs


For a long period of time, was believed to be the lost binding bond between post-punk and new wave music of Greece. Despite however, their exceptional appearances and their 3 demos, recorded from summer 1985 until their final split in 1993, their only musical inheritance was the extremely rare album “New Horizon”, in 10 copies!! The limited number of copies resulted due to numerous technical sound problems that lead to the discontinuance of the album’s production.

Chapter 24


A minimal/synth wave experimental band formed in 1982. In 1988 released their first album "Tin Invaders". The band is still active. From Chapter 24 myspace page "Co-established in 1982 by Antonis Livieratos (keyboards) and Vagelis Boulouhtsis (bass) in Ioannina, Greece, the nowadays highly respected yet still unclassifiable "Chapter 24", ("Kefalaio 24" in Greek), were named after Syd Barrett’s song. Their first album (following a short series of independent home-produced cassettes), "Tin Invaders" in 1988 features lyrics in English and despite the avant-garde reputation of the band, is definitely pop- oriented."
