Biography

Veria, Greece (1985 – present)
Μωρά στη Φωτιά (Mora Sti Fotia, English: Babies on fire) started in 1985 when three friends from Veria, Greece form the “Τεμπέληδες της Εύφορης Κοιλάδας”. They are Στέλιος Παπαϊωάννου - Σαλβαδόρ (Stelios Papaioannou - Salvador) on vocals and bass, Γιώργος Παπαϊωάννου (Giorgos Papaioannou) on drums and Δημήτρης Βασιλειάδης on guitar.

One year later Δημήτρης left the band to do his military service and was replaced by Παύλος Παυλίδης (Pavlos Pavlidis).

In early 1986 they leaft Veria for Thessaloniki and changed their name to “Λεγεώνα των Ξένων”. They spent that summer playing live shows in various cities, mostly in northern Greece.

After a suggestion by Γιώργος Παπαϊωάννου they changed their name to “Μωρά στη Φωτιά”; the idea came from the song “My baby is on fire” by Βrian Eno.

Under the name “Μωρά στη Φωτιά” they recorded their self titled debut in 1987. The album included 8 songs written by Στέλιος Παπαϊωάννου - Σαλβαδόρ (“Κάτω στην πόλη”, “Σκυλίσια μέρα”, “Αδέρφια στην Κόλαση”, “Ηρωϊνη”, “Παυσίπονο”, “Μανιφέστο”, “Υποσχέσεις”, “Το Παιχνίδι”) and a cover of Βrian Eno’s “Third Uncle” with lyrics by Στέλιος.

During the spring of 1988 they started playing a series of new songs during their live shows such as “Αδρεναλίνη”, “Σαλονίκη (Μόνος σου ξανά)”, “Βαβυλωνία”, “Γυναίκα”, “Άνθρωπος Ελέφαντας”, ‘’Φωλιά του Κούκου”, “Θεατρίνοι” and more.
