ACHMI (Nick Sebekopoulos)

Nick Sebekopoulos was playing guitar for The Drops - a 90s darkwave band from Piraeus, Greece. They had one 7" single (Fatal Fall, 1994) and one LP (Suicide in Heaven, 1995).  The band created beautifull soundscapes of melancholy and they remained a legendary name till today.

You can visit their website here


There is an excellent presentation of The Drops and you can also download their work in this blog

 "Suicide in Heaven" was their last recording and band's members played for some other greek bands. Guitar player Nick Sebekopoulos played later for Ding an Sich, but in 2001 or 2002 (im not sure about that) released, in limited copies, his solo work (voice and electric guitar only) in cd form, by the name ACHMI (Silver). I was lucky enough to Know Nick and meet him sometimes back then and he gave me one of the copies and here it is!





It's a collection of dreamy and melancholic songs in greek language. The guitar creates beautifull melodies and the voice sings some "strange" but fascinating lyrics.
