The Frantic Five
The Frantic Five were formed in June of 1994 (Thessaloniki-Greece) and they have never denied their obsession with the sound of the mid-sixties garage punk, rnb and euro beat. The spine of their sound consists of an explosive mixture of farfisa and fuzz and they manage to move smoothly between garage punk, groovy beat and melodic moody tunes.
The band has a bunch of releases in various labels across the globe (Greece, Australia, Italy, UK, Germany, Norway) and has participated in numerous compilations.
The Frantic Five have been on stage countless times and they also have been touring outside the borders of Greece in countries such as Germany, Italy,UK and Turkey since 2003.
The Frantics where honored to open for bands such as the Sonics (2009), the Fuzztones (2001,2003), ? and The Mysterians (1999), Sky Saxon and The Seeds (2006), Fleshtones (2006), Sick Rose (2006) and others and they have also shared the stage with all the Greek rock n roll bands.
