Rock In Athens ‘85: riots in and outside the gig and the final live concert of The Clash…

It was 30 years ago today when the ancient Kallimarmaro Panathinaiko Stadium in Athens, home to the first modern Olympic Games of 1896, opened for a two-day hot rock festival, called “Rock in Athens `85”. Athens held a series of cultural events, since it was chosen as the first ever European Capital of Culture, and some of the greatest bands were included in the festival’s line-up: Telephone, Stranglers, Depeche Mode & Culture Club for the 1st day and Talk Talk, The Cure, Nina Hagen & The Clash for the 2nd.

Keeping in mind that not many concerts were being held in Greece at the time, people were really thrilled for such a huge event for the era’s standards, with Clash being the most anticipated act. An estimated 90.000 people attended the festival in total.

The diversity of music styles of the 1st day brought together punks, rockers, new-wavers and pop fans in a surreal mixture of Greeks and tourists with different music backgrounds, which led to tension and conflict between Boy George of Culture Club and part of the audience, when some in the crowd threw bottles and stones at him and he replied that he would show them his ass if he wasn’t  such a nice …lady!

Depeche Mode surprised everyone with a performance that definitely helped broaden the electropop fan base in Greece, while The Stranglers had to fight the disadvantages of poor sound and appearing on stage too early in the Athenian summer afternoon, during a particularly hot day.

The 1st day was marked by clashes outside the stadium between police and people who tried to invade the concert without tickets, leading to  beatings, riots, injuries, fires and chasing in the streets.  

As for the 2nd day performances, The Cure made an appearance that established them in Greece as post-punk/gothic rock pioneers, but the undisputed kings of the 2nd day and the whole festival were The Clash, with a high-energy performance that drove the audience insane, just a few months before their break-up in 1986.

“Rock in Athens `85”, that 2-day music marathon is looked upon as a milestone for concerts in modern history of live events in Greece.

20:30 - SZEGED LIVE Music Club  

QUI (usa / Ipecac Recordings / Cobraside)

guitar + drums - David Yow (of the Jesus Lizard) = noise-rock DUO extraordinaire!

A két arc, aki zenélt (lemezt vett fel és turnézott) a világ legnagyobb énekesével, ezúttal - Magyarországon kizárólag - Szegeden!!!
Természetesen David Yow-ról beszélünk, a the Jesus Lizardból, azaz minden idők legjobb zenekarából. Kár, hogy ő már nincs benne a buliban, bár Matt Cronk gitáros/énekes és Paul Christensen dobos/vokalista legújabb videójában elvállalta - stílszerűen - a pap szerepét… Azért ne szomorodjunk el túlságosan, a zene továbbra is bivalyerős és a Lizard hatása letagadhatatlan, legújabb hanganyaguk producere pedig a Melvins dobosa, Dale Crover volt, aki vokálozik is rajta. (Társ-producer pedig az a Toshi Kasai, aki a Big Businessben gitározik és így szintén Melvins körökből jön). Ha ennyi referencia nem elég, akkor még megemlítjük, hogy a Yow-val készült Love’s Miracle-t a Mike Patton féle Ipecac Recordings adta ki, és mi nagyon szerettük, ezt írtuk róla anno: http://endhits.hu/qui-love’s-miracle/

Szóval, ha ezt kihagyod……….

Azt est bemelegítő vendége a mindenki által csak Toskának vagy “a Rádiék”-ként emlegetett, koncepciójában minden fellépésre új nevet választó, zenéjében, előadásában pedig minket leginkább a Fugazi-ra emlékeztető, ezúttal a beszélő nevű COLA / SPEED trió. Szeretjük őket, figyeljetek rájuk!

belépőt 1000 ft-ért válthattok a helyszínen az eseménykor, ami a csapatok költségeit fedi. köszönjük!
