[Live Report] Earthless & Tuber @ An Club, Athens, 12/11/2014


Greece finally made it to see Earthless for the first time, in Athens. Smoke the Fuzz Gigs brought along with them, Tuber from Serres.
The gig started 15 minutes after 21.00 with Tuber on stage bringing a lot of psychedelia with them, mostly from their first EP & LP releases. They had a crystal clear sound although the fuzziness in their guitars and they seemed like they have been through a lot of progress until their final forms and compositions.

[Interview] Down with Fuel Eater

Welcome to DT. Tell us a few words about the group, when and where did you get started? How did you meet?
Hi guys and thanks for the invitation! We met while we were students in Patras. It all started in April 2012 when we decided to start jamming. After a few months the first ideas came along and we began writing music and doing some gigs. Along the way we have had some line – up changes with a new bassist and a new vocalist joining while the second guitarist left and was never replaced. So, we slowly began shaping our personal sound.
