Ode to a friend

In 2012 as the band prepared to organize its following year tour of Oz and so record its customary accompanying album, tragedy struck. Founding and long time member Hector Cosmas passed away. It was a massive blow to all and there was talk of disbanding .Months later, towards the end of the year, it was decided that the band should not fold and continue to play, as Hec would have wanted us to do so.

The band returned to its old formula of Rebetika and Folk songs, this time recording a couple of Amanedes as well. Guest musicians were Christos Biniaris, Sotiris Margonis, Klearhos Korkovelos and Nick Manikas. The cover art-work was by Panayiotis Vasilatos and the album was dedicated to the memory of Hec.
