Cd Liner Notes
The Frantic Five were formed in 1994.
They immediately became active and started performing. Imagine in the Kurt Kobain and techno era 5 guys in white shirts and black ties performing real unadulterated 60's garage and eurobeat!!! In 1995, Jens Lindberg came to visit and they recorded 2 tracks lost in oblivion and 10 tracks as a rehearsal.
Time passed, some e.p's were released in and out of the Greek border, and doing wild and fun gigs was the permanent agenda for the cold Greek nights. It was May 1999, and ? And The Mysterians chose the band to open for them. Later on, the same thing happened with the notorious Fuzztones. Their 10" on Misty Lane Records was reviewed several times in magazines, zines, played in radio stations and television. A superb gig followed supporting the Fuzztones and Mark Lindsay during the Greek Psychorama Festival. An invitation to Italy's Festival Beat rushed the boys over the Adriatic Sea establishing their sound abroad. In 2003, the boys gathered in the studio to record their first 12" of sonic pleasure! "A long play with the Frantic V" was what came out (ON STAGE RECORDS). Next year, they invaded Germany in late October for Germans to enjoy some frantic tracks in full volume, screams farfisa and fuzz. For the time being, the boys are recording their second long player. As for future plans, who knows ? The frantic gang might invade your town any moment now, so beware!

Δώστε και κάνα ευρουλάκι και αγοράστε το καινούργιο τους EP γιατί το αξίζουν...
Δεν θέλω τσιγκουνιές., εξάλου τα περισσότερα από αυτά που έχουν κυκλοφορήσει, είναι εξαντλημένα.
Συλλογή με live - κυρίως - ηχογραφήσεις και το πάρτυ συνεχίζεται...Κόλημα μεγάλο για μένα η διασκευή στο Liar Liar. Απολαυστικοί όπως πάντα.
Ακούστε και αυτό.
