Annita Koutsouveli – I Hloi Perimeni / Tiligmeni sto Haos

(The grass is waiting / Surrounded by chaos)

(MINERVA RECORDS    MS 2103 – 1971)

This is a top-rare 7” single by cult poet/actress/singer Annita Koutsouveli. Some collectors consider it as one of the weirdest acid-psychedelic records to come out of the Greek rock scene, while others see it as a failed effort of a singer with a not-so-great-voice. Trust your own ears!

Issued in 1971 by “MINERVA” records, it has all it takes to be a cult classic. Strange female voice, singing psych-hippie lyrics (probably her own poems), while in the background the rock band creates a unique acid-rock (with heavy organ+distorted guitar) sound!

You can find some information about Annita Koutsouveli and her art-related activities at several sites on the internet.

*** Check the “The Song and the Silence” movie ( IMDb) from 1969, in which she stars among others!***

  1. Η Αννίτα Κουτσουβέλη πρωταγωνίστησε και σε μία υπερσπάνια ταινία, το The Song and the Silence (1969), η οποία είχε προβληθεί προ….αμνημονεύτων από την ΕΡΤ !
