International Comedy is the big hidden secret of the greek dark wave scene!
It's the first group of the famous guitar player Asklepios Zampetas (after International Comedy he played for The Mushrooms and later for Trypes, the most succesfull greek rock band ever - and one of the best of course).
But in the early '80's, in Thessaloniki, Asklepios had formed a mind blowing darkwave band!
In some way they were the perfect group for the legendary Creep Records - in fact the Creep asked International Comedy to participate for a compilation - unfortunately soon after that both the label and the band stopped working!
This year Lotus recordshop released two songs taken from the 1985 tape compilation "Give bees a chance" in vinyl only - limited edtion.
You all know how great Asklepios's guitar work for The Mushrooms was, so imagine it in a dark wave band!
I thought that i could complete the presentation of this great band by including in the file the three songs that they had recorded in Thessaloniki for the compilation LP "Sounds and Noises of the SKG" in 1984. Unfortunately i don't have the vinyl record so i downloaded these 3 songs from the net and added them to the file.
I'll say it again - this band is the big hidden secret of the greek darkwave scene of the '80's!
