Panos, who was looking for a new guitar player for his band, meets Nick for the first time. They both drink black coffee, Nick does the talking, Panos has another coffee.
Panos is looking for a new drummer. Yes, he’s looking for another new bandmate in the same week. Seriously, seems like something goes wrong with the guy. Nick calls Paul, his good friend and bandmate in many other projects. Paul is on tour, tired and sleepless. He says “not interested” and hangs up. Luckily, some hours later he changes his mind and decides to give it a shot.
The band starts touring alongside Craig Walker (x-Archive singer)
While travelling to the second stop of their tour, they take a rest for a while somewhere in the highway. Nick buys the sandwiches. The others find a ball and start playing football. Craig proves he is Irish, Panos does his best and Paul falls into a rosebush. Nick blames everyone for the rest of the trip, Panos laughs and drives, Craig sleeps. Paul plays the gig with one foot.
The new band is finally called “Pocket in Red”.
Pocket in Red start recording their first demos.
Nick buys a new effect pedal. That makes it 107 in total.
They share the stage with Craig Walker again, in Rockwave Festival, Athens. Dead Can Dance and The Monophonics also appear the same day.
Panos, Craig and a tv director stick in an elevator for two hours in the middle of the night, struggling to survive 40 degrees celsius. Paul, who has noticed their hesitation before entering the elevator, told them: “Go on, it’s perfectly ok for 3 persons”.
They all start working on many other projects, so they decide to pause Pocket in Red for some months.
Paul has a new motorbike.
They release their first demo just to the music press and they enjoy excellent reviews and radio time in many countries such as England, USA, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Denmark.
Studio time. Recordings for their first EP start.
Panos drinks the best beer of his life.
EP is mixed and mastered.
They choose the first single. It’s called “Rock’n’Roll”. They start talking about the video clip. John, the producer, doesn’t waste time. He thinks of the concept and finds the right director.
As said, John doesn’t waste time. A 5-star hotel bar in the heart of Brussels, Pedram Voss (the right director), 70 friends and fans, everything is in place. Time for the first video clip.
Pocket In Red release their first single “Rock’n’roll”.
Pocket in Red release their debut self-titled EP
