Share

Dirty Fuse were formed in 2008 by guitarist Duda Victor and drummer Chris Kogios in order to explore the frenzied world of surf rock. Mainly influenced by Dick Dale, Ventures, Atlantics, Ramones and Television, their music is based on old school '60s surf music, channeled through the energy of garage and punk rock. As a trio (Guitar-bass-drums) begin wandering the live bars and venues of Athens playing mostly their own music. After a few lineup changes in mid 2009 they recorded their first songs which will be released a year later on 7" vinyl "Lost Riders". During 2010, Manos Kisamitakis (saxophone) John Drake (bass) and Costas Bakoulas (guitar) added to the band, along with Duda Victor and Chris Kogios. In 2012 Dirty Fuse released a self-titled, full-length CD including the track "Sunset Beach" (a surf cover of V. Tsistanis' "Akroyalies Dilina") which meets great acceptance by DJs and radio producers (voted #47 of the 101 best surf tracks worldwide since the '70s by the listeners of North Sea Surf Radio and the members of the SurfGuitar101.com forum). In 2013 the band released a 10" vinyl titled "Surfbetika!" with 7 rebetika songs surfed up! (voted #60 of the 101 best surf albums worldwide since the '70s by the listeners of North Sea Surf Radio and the members of the SurfGuitar101.com forum). In October 2014 "last wave" released by Deep Eddy Records(USA). The bands brand new album includes two previously unreleased tracks by Jim Skiathitis (The Atlantics). Continuous shows and dynamic live presence became Dirty Fuse's trademark throughout the years.
