ExHumans - Anofeli Epiviosi,LP,1984,Greece

The band was formed in 1982, & was plagued throughout its existence by member changes & the need to borrow members from other bands. In 1984, they take part in the "Διατάραξη Κοινής Ησυχίας [ diataraxi koinis isyhias / disruption of public peace - a.k.a. disturbance of common peace ]" compilation, while their only record titled "Ανώφελη Επιβίωση [ anofeli epiviosi / useless survival ]" is released in that same year. The line-up that recorded the LP was: Yorgos "Havoc" Alevras (vox, guitar - currently in Velocity), Yannis Trompetas (bass, also currently in Velocity), Foivos Pergaliotis (drums). The track standing out in the record is "Ποτέ Ξανά [ pote xana / never again ]," although all other tracks are not to be missed.
The band follows the usual punk rhythms, with a musical & lyrical approach characterized by aggressiveness & energy, forever critical towards any & all sociopolitical status quo.
This is considered as one of the best early Greek punk LPs reciorded.As far as i know it was released in a mere 500-700 copies edition and it was very fast sold out. Very hard to find right now even in Greece. The lyrics are pure anarcho-punk while the music is more melody oriented ,well, punk of course, but with many post punkish hints.Reminding early Zounds in parts, Mob ,omega Tribe,etc.
