▪ DIMITRIS “SIDHEOG” STEVES [Greece | Drums, Composer] - Since 1989, “Sidheog” has been a drummer for a number of bands, namely, The Drops, Cabin Fever, Nexus, the Dutch band, Mecano, and currently, New Zero God. He’s also composed a handful of tunes (with Second Chance being one of them) and thought up a couple of lyrics here and there. At the same time, he’s also a full time graphic designer/illustrator of sorts, having supplied images and graphics for a number of publications, posters, flyers and CD sleeves over the years, embellishing -inter allia- such releases as those of Nexus, Casualty Park, and, of course, New Zero God. He’s considered a good sport and indulges in sofa sessions watching cartoons with his daughters and the occasional nip ‘n’ a hauf round with his bandmates... Oh, and playing drums really loud on stage!

▪ MICHAEL CHRISTOU [Greece | Guitar, E-Bow] - Michael Christou, who has been playing guitars since the mid-80s, continues to wow his audience with his seemingly casual approach to bringing a song to life. However, all casualness aside, his abilities to tweak and manipulate the strings bring powerful renditions of the song to the audience’s ear. His most notable bands prior to New Zero God were Panx Romana and Avaton.

▪ HARRIS STAVRAKAS [Greece | Bass] - Born in August of 1966, Harris Stavrakas started to play music with school bands in the early 80s. During 1984 he joined Greece’s leading goth rock band, The Flowers Of Romance. In 1990/1991 he moved to Osvestry, England, and formed the band, Orthodox. He returned to Greece the following year and rejoined The Flowers Of Romance, where he remained until they disbanded in 1998. In 2004 he joined the Sunny Baltzi Band, and in 2010, he once again teamed up with fellow Flowers Of Romance bandmate, Mike Pougounas in New Zero God.

▪ DON CAMPAU [USA | Vocals] - Don Campau has been involved in making and broadcasting music for a very long time. His group, The Roots Of Madness, released their LP in 1971. He began his “solo career” as a home-taper in 1976 and joined the Cassette Culture around 1984. In the spirit of the tape movement, Don likes to record lots of differing genres and makes all his albums available for free or for trade. In 1971, the same year as his first release, Don also began non-commercial radio broadcasting in the USA under the tutelage of ‘The Father of Community Radio’ Lorenzo W. Milam. After working at several community radio stations, he began his own radio show, “No Pigeonholes”, which has continuously been on the air since 1985, and is touted as the longest running show about home recording musicians in the world. Never having let go of his roots, he still welcomes all styles of original, home recorded music as well as releases by independent bands done in small studios.
