Παρασκευή 19/4 – The Callas

The Callas collaborated on songs and aesthetics with Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) on a new album which was released in late 2018.
The Callas with Lee Ranaldo – “Trouble and Desire” (LP, CD, Digital) (Dirty Water Records London / Inner Ear)
Their previous two albums, "Am I Vertical?” and “Half Kiss, Half Pain" were produced by Jim Sclavunos.
Their song “Anger” was selected by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds for their MOJO magazine CD compilation.
“Rock ‘n’ Roll thick and heavy with a strong motorik backbone” – BROOKLYN VEGAN
“Disaster! Disaster! Disaster! It happens! So goes The Callas’ riotous chant over the
dirgy, life-affirming garage rock stomp that is “Disaster.” – NOISEY
“Oddly Thrilling!” – MOJO (****)
5/5 – Album of the week – ARTROCKER
“It’s Sunday I’m Bleeding” – song of the day / KEXP Radio
“An amazing performance by The Callas that was a cross between punk rock
and Andy Warhol’s Factory scene” – THE INDEPENDENT
“As multi-media artists and filmmakers, they approach music making from a very
different perspective than the average musician and come up with some quite
unexpected results. The sonic palette of the new album is diverse and exploratory, with
songs that range in style from dreamy subversive pop to brutal post-punk skronk to
deconstructed rebetiko.”
Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds).
They have performed live in churches, galleries, flats, museums, boats, mountains,
toilets and festivals like Liverpool Psyche Festival (Liverpool UK), The Great Escape
Festival (Brighton, UK), Indigenes Festival (Nantes, France), Reeperbahn Festival
(Hamburg, DE) and with bands/artists such as Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, The Brian
Jonestown Massacre, Ty Segall, Television Personalities and Grinderman.
Art shows: Documenta 14 (Athens – Kassel), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Family Business
gallery / Anna Kustera gallery (New York), DESTE foundation (Athens), Athens Biennial
(Athens), Andreas Melas gallery (Athens), Yinka Shonibare Space (London), The Breeder
gallery (Athens), ATOPOS cvc (Athens) etc.
The Callas is the tip of an artistic squad producing music, artworks, films, magazines, art
shows, initiated by the brothers Lakis & Aris Ionas.
The last 10 years Lakis & Aris Ionas / The Callas have been publishing significant
magazines for the Athenian (Greece) underground music/art/film scene such as Velvet
magazine and Lust magazine. Their studio is one of the most active cultural spaces in
Athens. Going by the name Velvet Room they are organizing art shows combined with
music gigs and DJ sets involving some of the best new bands and artists in Athens.
“It’s a real cool record. There is this special kind of chemistry in the band”
Thurston Moore
