The Scantharies - debut album

The Scantharies debut self titled album is out on 3 December, a perfect stocking filler for the young n old alike. The Scantharies are a new band put together by Memphis mainstay and Andy Dragazis.

Buy the album from Amazon and iTunes .

Dragazis, who splits his time between London and the Greek island of Evia, came up with the idea of an album influenced by the Greek garage rock scence of the 60s and 70s whilst driving to buy cigarettes with his uncle listening to his old compilation tapes. These tapes were an eclectic mix of old Greek bands such as The Persons, The Forminx and Aphrodites’ Child, traditional Greek Rebetiko music of composers like Stavros Xarhakos and the mainstream instrumental guitar workings of The Ventures. Dragazis envisaged the album would be a ‘best of’ compilation of a band called ‘The Scantharies’ who he imagined bestrode the Greek music scene from the late 60s through to the end of the 70s.

Mojo gave the album 4 stars and said “A decade in a microcosm, Stardust with Demis Roussos cast in the David Essex Role. Quite Brilliant”.
