The IndieFunda Project

The indiefunda project is a collaboration of independent artists around the globe, who want to create a platform where an independent artist will be able to have financial aid directly from his/hers audience. Check it out!

May Roosevelt

Influenced by the very reverend trinity of Bach, Björk and Klaus Nomi, May Roosevelt is an extraordinary thereminist, composer and producer with a sense for good, old-fashioned drama. Her classical arrangements will give you the shivers (or, at the very least, remind you of movies that gave you the shivers), with nods to early industrial or electronic music and a passing resemblance to the god of thunder behind a theremin. Like many people, she got into music via her first Casio synth as a kid. If her knack for otherworldly sounds is anything to go by, that Casio must have been possessed by some very restless and musical ghosts.


2L8 is the project of K the Clown and a team of collaborators and musicians based in Thessaloniki, North Greece.

Berlin Brides

The Berlin Brides’ sound is a hybrid of electro, punk and powerpop. They were founded on September 2007 by Natasha Giannaraki, lyricist and lead singer and Marilena Orfanou, keybordist and composer who gives the band its electronic identity. Conceived in Berlin and formed in Greece, they are reinventing the music scene in Athens with their caustic lyrics and their combustible live performances.

Electric Litany

The story of the band started, when Alexandros and Richard met in London. Alexandros moved from Corfu to London, while Richard was leaving Devonshire for London in search of forming a band of his own. Duane was the last member to join the band, since he was found by Alex and Richard through an ad. Their first rehearsals were taking place in some pretty unusual places, like abandoned and derelict buildings.

New Zero God

New Zero God is a Greek punk/post punk rock band formed in 2006. Their popularity in Greece may be due to the veteran musicians who make up the band; as most Greek rock fans were already familiar with Mike Pougounas and Averkios Hadjiantoniadis from The Flowers Of Romance, which is considered a legendary Greek gothic rock group.

The band B-sides is the evolution of the music journey of a company of friends that started at the end of 1999. After approximately 5 years of live gigs, live club appearances and song recordings that group broke up.

The two guitarists and bass player decided to continue with a new drummer and no singer. They involved their sound in countless rehearsals from 2004 till early 2007. After changing their drummer and a few months later adding a singer, B-sides found the sound and personal style they desired and decided to get it out to the public.

In December 2007 they performed their first live as support group for the band Flakes at Politeia Live Hall in Patras.

At the start of 2008 they recorded and released 500 copies of the independent demo single “Morning After” which included the songs “Queen” and “Forest”. The single was released for free.

The song “Queen” was included in the collection Audiobook no.4 of Postwave.gr. It also was aired on the radio of Max FM, Politeia FM and Mojo Radio and was published three times in the first positions of the top 10 of the latter station.

In spring of 2008 the band recorded two more demo songs named “Kill” and “Who”. A demo single called “K-9” was released but not in quantities and was only handed out to friends and radio stations.

In May 2008 they took part in the 2nd Music Wave festival at An Club in Athens.

In June 2008 they took part in two more live festivals in Patras (School of Rock and Free your Voice) and also performed live at the club Catamaran.

Also in June they released on the internet a remix of the song “Kill” by Chris Nemmo. The EP “Bad Science” that was produced in limited copies right after that, included all the previous recorded songs and the remix of Chris Nemmo.

In August 2008 they submitted the song “Queen” for the Coca Cola Soundwave vol. 2 Contest. The song got distinguished by the critics and led to the participation of the band at the Athenian SoundWave live gig. The event took place at Bios Club Athens at the end of September 2008 with the participation of the bands Le Page and Monika.

In October 2008 they recorded one more song entitled “I speak your words”. Currently this song can only be found at the band’s site and myspace page.

In November 2008 “Queen” was included in the compilation CD of the issue 6 of Muzine Magazine (www.muzine.gr).

In December 2008 B-sides’ first official release comes from B-otherSide Records. A limited edition 7” inch vinyl single entitled “Queen” containing the songs “Queen” and “Forest” in special vinyl mastered form. The recording, mixing and production took place at Noisebox studio from sak (Dionisios Mpastas, member of Raining Pleasure) and the master was performed by Eroc (former drummer of Grobschnitt) and Takis Dimoulas at Original Meister Studio in Germany. The single was cut in 500 copies.

In December 2008 the song “Kill” was included in the new double collection of Dimitris Papaspyropoulos (Best Radio).

Story without end is B-Sides' debut album and their third official release from B-otherside Records!

Most songs are new but two of them had been included in the first demo (Queen and Forest) and were recorded again and Rekill is a new version of the well known Kill.
