Lemmy Never Dies



Alas is true… the thing that often rumored or feared the past couple of years, just happened… The son of a bitch finally bite the bullet and said a Farefuck (instead of Farewell, I guess) to Western Civilization; the same Civilization that approved and at the very end endorsed him; still he never missed an opportunity of fist fucking it and its representatives, the worst way possible!! A huge fuck off to conformity and to “descent” / society approved behavioral patterns. And most of all, an iconic father figure to genuine Rock N Roll that supported a decadent but always active rock and roll destruction / mayhem proposal to society’s status quo, with a healthier and most enduring way of living the wild way; despite he had to antagonize figures like Morrison or Cobain that tried to impose in Rock music their own miserable depression due to substances abuse… YOY DON’T NEED DRUGS IF U’RE GONNA BE MISERABLE & DEPRESSED STUPID!!! That’s what Lemmy taught me, while playing (and I passively and enjoyably listening) infernal and everlasting Heavy Rock N Roll!!!
It is no wonder that he is universally acclaimed and acknowledged, despite various obsessions, every music listener has, in one time of his life… At least we know now, that he is, at last, easy, since he was eventually killed, by the only thing that could kill him….And don’t get me started about cancer, because Dickinson had one in his tonsils and someone made a crazy campaign of it, whilst others, as it seems, endured, the only way humanly possible…


Lemmy Is Dead
He Is Unanimously now the New King Of Rock N Roll
So Long Live The King!!

A 2015 Monthly Recap: May


Continuing the year’s recap like 2016 never happened, we are finishing with spring time inventing new ways to keep Kokdi busy… A Saturday night’s peculiar homage to kitch and to the extravagant way only a Greek could choose for a proper entertainment. It resulted to schizophrenic VS battles and a sexy-like reference, to mainstream, orient based, Greek folk/pop music. And @ the same time completing one of most surrealistic rambling references of previous month

A 2015 Monthly Recap: April


All of these recap posts are devoted to those, stubbornly insist on labeling metalheads as obsessive and without any interest on experimentation… April, apart from original ramblings (to my opinion Nobel Prize material for wackiness!!), loans and pseudo athinorama issues, we've had our first time machines through retro db (firstly audio, then multimedia)

2015’s Final Countdown continuing with March. There are no less suggestions from there until Easter. So 30 music suggestions will be parading on the playlist below. I’ll try to incorporate only the true great ones in order for us to remember what March sounded like, back in that day… And believe me the month was extra strong in that department, so my job isn’t exactly easy… This month except from ramblings, or «loans», had another steady column (Pseudo – Athinorama) to deal with…

Pestilence: Music Suggestion Of The Day 14/12/2015


This Week I guess I’m starting with something powerful, yet with the same major dilemmas other suggested band had in the recent Kokdi’s suggestions (e.g. Discharge, Trouble). Started off as imaginative thrashsters these guys from Holland, managed to turn into something of a Coroner of Death Metal. The transformation is fully shown in today’s post

Being receiving he same fate as Pentagram and Exodus (having formed much earlier than their first release) are renowned today as pioneers in either Doom or Stoner Metal, celebrating this year, one of their albums turning 30, amongst other bands already suggested through Kokdi’s blog, of course…

Discharge: Music Suggestion Of The Day 10/12/2015

Having finished with the Greeks, it is time to get back in business as usual…Today I was wondering about what I’ve left behind having mentioned Exploited. The 2nd and more extreme wave of Punk, gave birth to Hardcore Punk still stationed in UK and surprisingly being granted a position to our beloved encyclopaedia (whilst bands like SYOAD or TOOL are ignored as being non-metal?!?!) as something of a crossover thrash band

Τρύπες: Music Suggestion Of The Day 09/12/2015

Today we’re concluding the reference to Greek Speaking rock heroes (P.S. & V.P.) with a band. As we stated in Monday, it is the most influential of the 3, regarding the fact that both of the suggestions made, were exceptionally unique and couldn’t be copied in any way. Those who tried failed disgracefully. This isn’t a problem with today’s suggestion, which started as a post – punk band with strong, provokative greek lyrics (to me it is like hearing early Cure e.g. "jumping someone else's train" or "grinding halt", singing in Greek with Thessaloniki’s accent), gained mainstream attention and commercial success, only to present a very progressive and experimental sound right @ the end, which were both original and unique enough to be counted alongside the other 2. Their influence expanded a great deal and managed to set the standards for what today is considered Greek speaking Rock. The fact that only Thessaloniki seemed to produce something impressing, as far as Rock Music concerns, surely state a lot, about today’s band status quo in the business. If you reach to a point where you are considered a landmark / icon / trendsetter for the future, amongst your peers and decide to split –up to maintain exactly this type of legacy and dynamics, rather than prolonging life only for commercial gain, then you are, in my book (as Kurt Russell says in Death Proof), truly an authentic Rock’ n Roll Great…..

Continuing with covering the 3 greatest of Greek Speaking Rock Music, we suggest one of the favorites of Mainstream Greek Rock, that managed to fuse art (poetry and significant music influences that exceeded those of yesterday’ s suggestion that stuck to early US Rhythm & Blues). Maybe because of his political background, maybe because of his powerful voice, maybe because he was in the right place in the right time, being the right man for the job…

Παύλος Σιδηρόπουλος: Music Suggestion Of The Day 07/12/2015

Since this week I’ve already set my mind on covering the Greek speaking Rockers of my generation, it is already one day too late to strat but it is never too late... Artists that put their brand in the local scene with legendary stories, some of them probably well-known and abroad. This 3 day back to back suggestions brings u Greece’s finest, speaking the native tongue and performing something of a classical US kind of blues rock (for today), something of elementary rock infused with artistic addition (such as lyrics taken from poems, sounds imitating mainstream international music with extensive use of keyboards for tomorrow) and the most original of this lot, a genuine replica of brit new wave post-punk sounds and founding bands (e.g. early Cure for Wednesday) with Greek subversive lyrics and ultimately an independent and exploring rock sound that still endures and referred to as classic and an endless fountain of inspiration (as far as Greek speaking Rock concerns…)

Cover 'Em All Vol.1: Music Suggestion Of The Day 06/12/2015

Today I was thinking something of a mega combo, instead of a Great One from the List… Why not everyone (well almost)?? A post tribute to garage, some consider to be the actual first rock genre (considering rock as something only white men played). With the term garage one should perceive as bands gathered around a DIY studio performing their favorite bands and tracks. The story of Rock’ n Roll is filled with cover versions of other people’s songs…Some made covers the ground base of their success story (Elvis, Beatles, Rolling Stones), some used it as tool of promoting significant bands that were unknown but quite remarkable…This post is rather a big connect them all, through the most characteristic of the genre; the freedom to cover your favorite tune, maybe in a garage...maybe as a garage, such as Iguanas...

24 χρόνια Ζωης Original 21 Ηράκλειο Κρήτης

Τα τελευταία 12 χρόνια της ζωής μου ήσασταν η οικογένεια μου, το όνειρο του συνανήκειν. Τα μισά χρόνια δηλαδή του καλύτερου κλαμπ της επαρχίας… και δυστυχώς μετράμε και με απώλειες τον χρόνο και το κοντέρ γράφει 2… και την απώλεια όμως με το ίδιο τραγούδι την αντιμετωπίζουμε και με τον ίδιο σεβασμό… και ξάφνου μέσα στα τραγούδια η απώλεια μικραίνει και μένει η παρουσία και οι ωραιές αναμνήσεις…
Όλα τα παλληκάρια εκεί, ξέρουν την αξία που μοιράζονται. Πως ακόμα και αν δεν μοιάζουν ο ένας στον άλλο, εσώτερα και εμπρός στο μεγαλείο μιας ομάδας με ιστορία και αθλητική παράδοση στην αλληλεγγύη και στην ευγενή άμιλλα και για όσο η «μέθεξη» αυτή διαρκεί, ομοιάζουν απόλυτα…

 Μεγάλη ευτυχία αυτό… 
Σας ευχαριστώ ΑΕΚΑΡΕΣ μου, γι αυτό το «συνανήκειν», καθώς ήμουν ξένος σε ξένα μέρη, όμως ήμουν πάντα εκεί που αγαπούσα όποτε βρισκόμουν στο παλιό/μυθικό και, κάθε φορά που, τώρα βρίσκομαι στο καινούργιο δωματιάκι…
Ο Μύθος
το "καινούργιο"















πάντα με αυτό το ανατριχιαστικό «μεθύσι της χαράς», ό,τι και αν τριγύρω συμβαίνει, σ’ όποια ξένα μέρη και να πας, με το αδερφό σου ξέρεις,
είστε δυνατοί γιατί είστε ΕΝΑ…

System Of A Down: Music Suggestion Of The Day 04/12/2015

Today’s suggestion came really easy, considering yesterday's band name...The real question with this suggestion may be their low position in MyTop100 List of Rock music, since their 2nd album is already considered an instant classic due to the originality they brought in metal scene which seemed in the late 90’s dying or about to. The groundbreaking sound, the style of melodic hardcore (??) with punk (highly political I mean) lyrics and of course groovy rhythms and the absence of lead guitars; this I say according to the «must», a classic metal band of the 80’s, would have on incorporating a solo in a song; even Kerry King tried to squeeze a «something» of a guitar solo!! In the 90’s though and after Morello and his crew abolished this classic concept of a solo, there were a strong belief that playing a solo is outdated and pointless; even a solo of Kerry King’s!! Stoner was already considered (and was) a reincarnation of the mighty 70’s, thus not original, so today’s band, even though they released their debut album in late 90’s had definitely the most innovative sound in the metal business. If Pantera IS the most significant metal band in the 90’s (no not Nirvana!!), today’s suggestion is surely amongst the most significant of the 00’s, even though they're finally labeled as just Rock (not even Hard Rock in wiki!!)

Camel: Music Suggestion Of The Day 02/12/2015


Another day another pain, another sorrow, another gain….Today’s suggestion is surely a Gain aesthetically. One of the pioneers of prog Rock of the 70’s with a distinctive sound that made anyone else sound different. It seems that this band is a genre of its own, a kind of undisputed Wishbone Ash of Prog without the underrated notion that sadly Ash carries as legacy. You may consider them easy listening, u may say that it’s too cerebral; but they are not as «difficult» as Genesis were and they are far «easier» to listen and comprehend the journey suggested, than e.g. Yes. Really intriguing fun to listen to and quit relaxing to just chill lay back and relax… after all it’s just the middle of the week!!

For starters hve an awesome December!! The rhythm and pace of life may be weakening and exhausting but with bands like today’s suggestion u won’t feel a thing. Much – much faster and not exhausting but at times awesome, these Brits can surely make our day the way a good Thrash band can. With their astonishing «For Whose Advantage?» LP these guys from Preston, Lancashire, proved that the UK scene, that lacked enormous bands of that genre, surely knew how to Thrash in a (rather American but) unique way!!

Μέχρι και σήμερα η συγκεκριμένη ταινία γνωρίσει 2 συνέχειες, έχει γίνει ατυχές remake και currently αποτελεί και θέμα τηλεοπτικής σειράς (Ash Vs. EvilDead).

Aphrodite's Child: Music Suggestion Of The Day 30/11/2015


It was meant to be a back to back with Friday’s suggestion… Nevertheless is quite exciting that we had ancestors not only in ruins but in prog rock of late 60’s and early 70’s!! Today’s band is considered archetypal amongst its peers in the English spoken rock music coming from this side of the planet!!Their 3rd release is maybe the first concept album rock music released and one of the most significant not only in Greece but internationally. It is one of my personally favorites and especially the well renowned "Horsemen" were for many many years a favorite companion in all my musical walkthroughs...The band’s main figures (Vangelis, Roussos) had many collaborations and hits since then as solo artists as well establishing the point of international acclamation (one of them even won an Oscar for Chariots of Fire OST)

Friday used to be my favorite day because obligations used to end and the weekend was to come… But now, seems that Friday is a new start for a weekend of a further more try. On this note I should go on an inwards approach. With today’s band its not like we discover America or something… but I surely know that for whoever haven’t heard about Greek prog of the 70’s (with gr lyrics or not) today’s band will be some kind of rediscovering routes always thought and perceived as well established exclusively on western hemisphere.

The Exploited: Music Suggestion Of The Day 26/11/2015


Today’s band didn’t quite make it neither in this blog (till today) or MyTop100List of Rock. And it wasn’t for lack of trying or for some other particular reason either. Maybe the fact that this band is maybe synonymous with the sub-genre it represents, yet it’s latest releases sound more of thrash  than hardcore punk; so I figured, it was better not to include them in the relative list so I wouldn't be so subjective to the bands and artists' picks, for their attributes in Rock's world scene. Pioneers nevertheless in the 2nd wave of punk attack from Uk (and Scotland no less!!) and as it turns out, main influence of the pioneers of thrash metal that were about to form and commercially take over the genre today’s band represented with absolute honesty and the rawest (at that time) of riffs!!

Pentagram: Music Suggestion Of The Day 24/11/2015

Today’s suggestion is iconic. Yet it is not considered as archetypal with e.g. the Sabs, even though they were formed in the same decade give or take one or two years. Why is that? The band remained in the underground scene all of the 701’s and early 80’s and had to wait for bands like Candlemass or St. Vitus to emerge before releasing their first eponymous debut album in 1985. They are considered to be amongst the Doom subgenre Classics and groundbreaking artists even though eventually all Doom experts agree on Candlemass trademariking the term (as Metallica did with their Thrash aesthetics, even though groups like Exodus were way older and far more experienced since they formed back in ’79)

A Perfect Circle: Music Suggestion Of The Day 23/11/2015


It’s shifting gears again this week hopefully with a supergroup in mind to help us get started. When thinking progressive and supergroup not many things come to mind. A Steven Wilson (a.k.a. Porcupine Tree) side/solo project perhaps?? It’s not the first time if you consider it… but being a huge Tool fan wasn’t finally able to resist the temptation to move further away from the groundbreaking heavy progressive themes of Tool and rediscover aspects never seen, even though the rest are true offsprings of 90’s alternative sound the final proposition is way interesting… a satisfactory mixture of 50% progressive 50% alternative rock solution…

The Rolling Stones: Music Suggestion Of The Day 22/11/2015


In the great tradition (??) of Sunday’s posts we suggest and present to you THE definitive rock band (opposed to Beatles being THE definitive band in general, I guess). Only mentioning the idea the biggest battle of the bands comes to mind. Both pioneers of Brit invasion infused the American blues on their notion of rock n roll; and while the beatles kept experimenting with sounds and formats Jagger & Richards kept on working their principal idea of archetypal, intellectual and prog (e.g. songs like fingerprint file or under my thumb) yet filthy and raw, yet mainstream rock (that reached its peak in the infamous Sticky Fingers album, or if u like, the Stones’ White Album) at the same time. Being the band  that released the first over 10 minutes blues rock track (going home) and amongst the precious few that impose their songwriting over just infusing the blues of the black man in a white’s commercial rock sound, even though their loan were more persistent e.g. You gotta move, than the Beatle one). The most successful and enduring brand name in the business with countless trivia information and equally countless groundbreaking contributions to our favorite music. Its rather pointless to introduce them or even begin on quoting major contributions and legacy attributes, to what we today refer to, as Hard Rock, or plain rock n roll, the record companies’ one; the classic and enduring that perceives itself as both original and everlasting.

The Clash: Music Suggestion Of The Day 21/11/2015


The band we suggest for today is amongst my favorites in this sub-genre of rock music. Whilst I was younger the band’s name alone, could stand as an argument to other hotheads metal fans, about whether or not punk musicians’ could actually play their instruments. When referring to Joe’s band, these entire pointless debates always ended with a staggering silence. Whether we like it or not, today’s band (Ranking #28 @ MyTop100List) is as revered as Ramones in US and surely The Best Band coming out the punk explosion of 1977…

The Velvet Underground: Music Suggestion Of The Day 20/11/2015


Today’s suggestion is coming rather easy like going with the flow even if kinda betrays the general principle of 365 different suggestions. This peculiarity already happened in other artists such as Maiden or Tom Waits. This time around we have a better alibi simply because today’s band is slightly different from yesterday solo artist suggestion. Nevertheless these 2 posts are strongly connected due to the fact that today’s suggestion has for principal member yesterday’s artist. It’ like Sabbath saying and let tomorrow’s dream seems like yesterday’s to me….

Lou Reed: Music Suggestion Of The Day 19/11/2015


Today’s suggestion really doesn’t need any introduction. The real matter of interest was to leave out his final recordings with my favorite band. Not because I believe that this work is unworthy of reference. But doing so I had to include many - many tracks more, well deserving this too (e.g. tracks from blue mask album)!! So in order of keeping it true as far as both fan based selection and critical acclaim, we focus on 2 consecutive albums that happened twice through a 40 years span of a solo career.

Just getting the hang of it…We’ve already stated that we shift gears through the week.

Never too late I reply… and today’s band is worth being labeled as classic, so, as I’ve said before it’s always good «messing» with the greats!! Today’s band is completing the dynamic duo of UK trip hop pioneers (see related artist below) even though it has been "somewhat" suggested in the past (press here for a live of the dynamic duo)

Johnny Cash: Music Suggestion Of The Day 17/11/2015

Today we’re shifting gears to something laid back (??) and easy…Some plain redneck country music straight from the best the one & only Man In Black long before Mets or even the well-known secret company that handles aliens with the proper discretion. Today’ s artist may not considered quite rock but if gospel and blues is considered a center pillar of evolution, sadly so, is bluegrass and country music…and frankly, after American Recordings and Rick Rubin, there isn’t a sensible rocker that does not comprehend him as anything else but a true & genuine apostle of Rock Music. And if u still are not convinced, contemplate his activism for the Indians to be surely persuaded…
