"On A Steady Diet of Hash, Bread & Salt"

Daniel Padden - Adinatisa O Kaymenos (originally by A. Kostis)

Amen Dunes - Sousta Politiki (originally by Antonis Dalgas)

"Rebetika, a truly underground music created at the beginning of the 20th century, was, in its preamble form, the music vehicle to express a culture bumbling under a constantly changing society – a culture based on drugs, haunted by poverty. Unfortunately, in its birth land Greece, Rebetika was transformed through the decades, became soft and gradually deteriorated to a stupid folklore music consumed by the neogreek unmusical masses and tourists alike. For us, early 20s – late 30s Rebetika represents the rawest, purest and yet finest form of Greek folk music ever recorded. We regard this music as lyrically powerful, sentimentally resourceful and musically chaste as the blues." -- SOUNDEYET, Greece
