Rehearsed Dreams - Trip (E.P. - 1985 recordings). Vinyl rip. 2011

   Rehearsed Dreams was one of the darkest bands ever! 
   They formed in Athens, Greece, in 1985 and they released their only record "Repulsion" in the legendary Creep Records the same year. Their music is influenced by Bauhaus and darkwave generally, but Rehearsed Dreams tried to push it as far as possible!
    They created a sound reflecting all the despair and melancholy someone can feel...
    Piano was playing key role in their music which is also characterised by the excellent vocals.
    Band's members were John Schrei (Giannis Papaioannou) - vocals, keyboards, bass, piano, saxophone, Spy Spider (Spyros Faros)- guitar, fretless bass, cello, piano and Billy SS - drums, but they had the help and collaboration of Fill Scars from Yell O Yell.
    After the release of Repulsion Rehearsed Dreams started working on new material with the participation of Fill Scars. They recorded 5 songs but they never made it to continue because the group disbanded.

These tapes were lost for all these years (!) untill last year some great guy found them somewhere in Spain! So, the Inner Ear record label finally released three of these songs in this E.P. on vinyl only and limited copies (250 only - sold out of course).

The songs are written by Spy Spider and John Schrei and the musicians are John Schrei (vocals, Roland SH-101, piano, saxophone), Spy Spider (fretless bass, cello, piano), Fill Scars (electric guitar, backing vocals on "Trip") and Andreas F. (drums).

P.S. I have to warn you. This is really dark...
