Album Notes
Foko is an electric rock guitarist,based in Athens,Greece.He combines the metric complexity of his native Greece with a smokey Beck-ola tone in a style uniquely his own.He has drawn praise from the legendary Jeff Beck,as well as Eric Johnson,Reeves Gabrels.Foko lived in Boston,Usa,for nearly 20 years.He formed his own instrumental trio in 1989 featuring Darrel Maxfield on drums and Peri Bakalos on bass.The trio released 2 cds.:AN EXPRESSIONIST'S VIEW: IN 1995 and CONFESSION IN 1999.Both cds received great reviews and were met with enthusiasm from fans.Foko was featured in Guitar player magazine and is endorsed by RIVERA amplifiers.He is currently working on his third cd that will mark a radical change in his style with a more psycedelic,fuzz infested sound that uses a lot of experimental,industrial and noise elements.

Amazing progressive rock with out-of-this-world energy
I wrote a review of their other cd, "Confession" and it could apply to this cd, as well. All the energy, inspiration and virtuosity of that one. Add into it a stronger Greek music and instrument influence, and it sounds like it came from a different planet. This and "Confession" are the only cd's I've listened to in weeks. You'll do the same.
