Biography

Thessaloniki, Greece (1983 – 2000)

Τρύπες (Trypes; Tree-pes), which translates in English as “Holes”, were an acclaimed band. Members come from Thessaloniki, Greece.

Τρύπες was created in 1983 when Γιώργος Καρράς (Giorgos Karras) and Γιάννης Αγγελάκας (Giannis Aggelakas) wrote their first, post-punk influenced lyrics.

Μιχάλης Κανατίδης (Michalis Kanatidis) on guitar and Κώστας Φλωροσκούφης (Kostas Floroskoufis) on drums accompanied them at their first appearance. In 1984 Μπάμπης Παπαδόπουλος (Babis Papadopoulos) replaces Michalis at the guitar and in 1985 they record their first record, Τρύπες (Holes), which included their first hit song Ταξιδιάρα ψυχή (Travelling Soul) for Ano-Kato Records. The album was followed by live appearances at the “Selini” club, the university campus and the surrounding areas of Thessaloniki.

Kostas Floroskoufis was soon replaced by Γιώργος Τόλιος (Giorgos Tolios).

Concerts were held in Athens in the Rodeo Club and at the open air amphitheater of Lykavittos, where they played the opening act for Δημήτρης Πουλικάκος (Dimitris Poulikakos).

Meanwhile, the band’s working relationship with Ano - Kato Records started to go sour. This happened due to the oral contract they had with Ano - Kato Records and the exploitation of the band’s rights over the record. Later on their first album, Τρύπες, was given for free with the greek music magazine difono. They decided to go independent and - on borrowed money - recorded their second disk Πάρτυ Στον 13ο Όροφο (Party on the 13th Floor) which was eventually published with Virgin Records.
