3 Greek guys decide to form a band, name themselves Baby Guru and start making trippy tunes. Their music could be described as psychedelic pop and their influences are very broad, from CAN and Aphrodite’s Child to Mike Oldfield. Find out more about them and listen to their enchanting music.
My name is Baby Guru but you might know me as Baby Guru. I was born in Greece and grew up Athens. When I was a child my idol was Robert Fripp, because he made Larks’ Tongues In Aspic. When I was 16, I started jamming. It was then when I realised that music was my most genuine form of expression and decided to form a band. Since then I devoted my self to this idea.
One of my best gigs I played was at Eurosonic (2nd day). It was so much fun because people were singing and dancing.
One of the best gigs I have been to was Camel (reunion). I loved the guitar leaks.
Now I live in Athens with a brother, sister and a dog. In my house you can find two pianos and my refrigerator is usually full with nothing. I enjoy recording and listening to music a lot. I can spend hours doing overdubs. One of my favorite places to visit is my country house, because of the sea.
On weekdays I try to be patient and on weekends I usually try to be creative.
My favorite song at the moment is MU – Sun Ra. A film I watched lately and really liked was Blade Runner. The last series I watched and loved was Lost Room.
I am very inspired by space-age disco. My dream is to have wings and fly. My worst nightmare is a bad wife.
I love meat and hate sharing food. I am addicted to tumblrs with naked women, I just cannot stop scrolling down.
I get totally fucked up, when I chat online. The next day I need to erase my social media.
Local Suicide reminds me of LSD.
Tomorrow I will start it all over again. Next month who knows? Next year who cares? In 10 years I hope to be alive and well.
If I wasn’t a man, I would be a woman.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, “The Men Who Stare at Goats” would have the main role, because of my chaotic nature. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be Amber Heard.
If I was a car, I would be a crashed hummer H1. If I was an animal, I would be a Cobra. If I was a drug I would be a natural one. If I was an invention, I would be an elevator (OTIS). If I was an object, I would be a Moog synthesizer. If I could date myself, I would have sex everyday.
If I could play with anyone it would be Giorgio Moroder. I would like to collaborate with people with open minds.
If I had only one wish, it would be a talking wall.
I would never hit a woman in the face, because it’s indecent and it hurts.
My word of advice to the reader would be to do not stop buying records.
