Fingers Crossed - Hopscotch [self-released, 2008]






















Fingers Crossed are Dimitris Geronikolas (vocals), Yannos Paramythiotis (guitars), Minas Liakos (guitars), Viron Theodoropoulos (bass) and Serafeim Giannakopoulos (drums). Formed in 2002 the band resides in Athens, Greece. Their music could be described as highly energetic, melodic post-punk, indie rock ‘n roll with a subtle influence from the dj and electronic culture. In 2004 they released a split ep called “Enough for today”, with fellow band Intwoscars which was distributed by Ride ‘n Crush records. “Enough for today” is now out of print having sold 1000 units. In 2006 they contributed two of their songs, “Electrocult” and “Maybe”, to the soundtrack of the movie “EDUART”, a film by highly acclaimed greek director Angeliki Antoniou. “EDUART” won 9 awards at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, including one for Best Music, participated in every major film festival around the world scoring praising reviews and was the official Greek selection for the Oscars. “EDUART’S” soundtrack was released by EMI Greece and “Electrocult’s” video clip received great airplay from Greece’s music channel MAD making Fingers Crossed the first band to enjoy such success without having a record deal. Two of their songs, “Winter” and “A minor”, have been included at the Spinalonga Records compilations, “In the junkyard vol.1 and 2”, which also have gone out of print having sold 1000 units each. Having toured extensively around Greece, playing in every venue imaginable, sharing the stage with notable Greek and international artists Fingers Crossed release their first full length album “Hopscotch” in October 2008 which is available for free download directly from their site www.fingerscrossed.gr, including music, artwork, lyrics and a story written by the band, describing the process of making an album in such a manner.
