ilios 'encyclopedia' cd antifrost afro 001 1996



i uploaded earlier the catalogue of the experimental musics fest in 97 and totally loved the idea of ripping (though knowing that dimitris will skin me alive) the what i consider today as one of the best experimental records to emerge from greece in the 90's (well 'ermai' is the other and #3 in my list is the 1st side of optical musics still unpublished promo tape of'abbe olympios' - the 2nd side needs editing to be as freaked improv as the 1st) and definitely one of the best of the last 20 years at least regarding our local network.

issued in 96 after an LP on elfish and the pharmacodynamics cd on eflish too which had as bonus the 2nd side of the LP. till then and at least for the great part of the 90s ilios was using mostly samples and was this a la residents (allow me this comparison) kind of sound. i still recall the day i met dimitris downtown for a beer (well i must have drunk a hell of vodka for sure then)and get my copy plus distro copies. remember that a couple of hours later i crushed in l.a. bar in exarhia to hang out with spyros of sound pollution / vomit for a couple of drinks (aka more vodka w/ lemon), out of couriosity lakis who run the bar (today runs bar 'oasis' in bangok, thailand so if you chance there say hi from his ol pals) wanted to listen to it so we gave a first listen there, gave it a couple more back home. can't say i liked it on the contrary i loved a lot the naked woman on the booklet's inlay but not so much the cd then. put it in the library and it was a few years later that did i listen to it again and loved it totally loved it, so much that still consider myself an idiot why i never asked for an LP issue or even better why didn't bootleg it and just pop up one day and hang dimitris his copies or better mail them w/ no sender's address on the pack or so.

a strong, well crafted work that each time you listen to it more and more sounds unfold in your mind lotsa styles to remind you but overall is a unique piece of experimental musics that comes highly recommended.

grab it here while you can, listen to it and drop a line to buy for almost nothing you real cd copy at antifrost
