Biography

Nikolas Asimos was born in Thessaloniki. Both his parents were from Kozani. As a young man he showed great eagerness to learn new things. In 1967 he enrolled in the Philosophical School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. During his college years he was often involved with the world of the theater and the performance arts whilst writing songs and singing in various boîtes of Thessaloniki.

He often had problems with the police, particularly during the period of military rule — junta — in Greece and the consequent restriction on civil liberties, i.e., freedom of expression.

In 1973 he moved to Athens from Thessaloniki; there he continued to be involved in theatre studies and graduated from a private theatre school. He wrote songs which were not recorded officially, but rather privately and on tapes that he would then sell on the streets of Athens. He performed in boîtes around Plaka along with Giannis Zouganelis and Sakis Boulas, inter alia. His first official recording effort was in 1974 with the single Romios - Michanismos (Ρωμιός - Μηχανισμός). In 1976 he had a daughter with Lillian Charitaki with whom he was not married.

In 1977 he was temporarily imprisoned along with 5 other editors and writers. They were all released after an initiative by Dionysis Savvopoulos.
