So, how many of you have heard of one of the most glorious and timeless music genres, originating in Greece? Those guys used to be some of the biggest stoners (xasiklides, χασικλήδες) around. Don’t get it wrong tho, they were inspired by Mary, not become clowns or whatever. It was culture and way of life for them and although the industry was never tolerant in them referring to weed in their songs, they somehow still managed to get the message out there, either by Apagoreumena (restricted) songs that were released underground or just anything they could make happen. They were massively stepped on, yet they made the best out of it, all while leaving back some of the greatest stuff for us to look up to and study. Shame that trend has overtaken anything else right now = everyone’s a faggot compared to these guys, forgetting the roots. Shit, most might not even be aware this whole thing existed sometime.:rolleyes:

One of the apagoreumena, talking about smoking etc, in slang Greek. (Even I have hard time understanding but it’s still nice, you can notice the vibes).:smoke:
