Yiannis Agelakas…at boiling temperature. All these years that Yiannis Agelakas has been in our musical map, he has never ceased being creative, subversive and, mostly, restless. The same applies for his band, 100ο C. For the last two years approximately, they have been experimenting, laughing, writing, erasing and travelling. The result of all the above is the cd titled “Quiet songs in carefree meadows” which was released last fall. With the cd packed in their luggage, they will travel this summer and take us along with them in musical journeys. Of course, there is still room for picks from Yiannis Agelakas’ previous musical routes, since the days of “Tripes”. The 100ο C are: Lambrini Grigoriadou (acoustic guitar), Alexis Arhontis (drums), Yiannis Savvidis (electric guitar), Giorgos Avramidis (trumpet), James Wylie (saxophone). The sound is edited by Giorgos Tachtsidis.
