The Sound Explosion were formed in Athens, Greece, in May 1991 by four young gentlemen obsessed with all the great mid 60's garage and beat bands from all parts of the world. The line up was John (vocals, 6 and 12 string Vox guitar, harmonica), Jim (Eko bass, backing vocals), Stelios (Farfisa organ, maracas, backing vocals) and Stavros (drums, tambourine). The band started playing alone and together with other bands, such us the Fuzztones, Dead Moon, the Marshmallow Overcoat and the Others. Their wylde stage act attracted the attention of garage freaks from all over the globe. As a result, the band started recording and releasing various 45's and a full length LP/CD, which got rave reviews from fanzines and magazines and considerable airplay from radio stations worldwide. While things started looking promising for the band, studies, day jobs, army obligations, some "internal frictions" ("we hate each other in the band" was a common phrase in the Sound Explosion ranks!), alien abductions etc, sadly put a sudden end to the band in early 1997. It looked like The Sound Explosion were gone for good! Yet, some things never change... So, you're right kids... THE SOUND EXPLOSION ARE BACK!!! About a few months ago we got again back together, which is something we would never expect to happen again ever. The line is the same except for the organ, which is now handled by our brand new member Stelios Askoxylakis, who replaced Stelios Drissis, who now resides in Belgium and still remains a friend. Don't expect any big changes in our sound. We still play that old 60's styled garage punk. Currently we are rehearsing, trying to remember our old material and writing new songs and trying new cover tunes, as well. Since we've been back in action, we've done gigs here in Athens, in Salonica and Italy, and are also planning some more gigs and we may even release some new records, so watch this space!
