Like today ,Before 5 years at 14 Oct. 2004 Vlasis Bonatsos (member of PELOMA BOKIOU) died at the age of 55.
It was Autumn of 1970 when PELOMA BOKIOU born in Athens .The first members was Nikos Daperis, Nikos Logothetidis, Takis Marinakis, Vlasis Bonatsos, Gianis Kiourtsoglou. In the same year circulated the first single Garifale,Garifale-Min Kles (Don't Cry). At 1971 realize the second single "Se afto to spiti (in this house) - An thes ela kai esi(If you Want, Come on)".
Soon, Kiourtsoglou & Logothetidis left the band & replaced by Taki Androutso, Giorgos Stefanakis & Ilias marinakis . With this line up the group create the first & only lp (early 1972). The first press was gatefold and has 10 new tracks (not iclued the singles).
Briefly the company reissued the lp 2 times with single covers & diferent tracks
Βut the constant member changes & litigations, dissolution the group at 1973 ,after the realize of 2 more singles :
Mari Maria- An Ixera (If I Knew) 1972 (from the lp)
Oi Magoi ( The Wizards) - Programatismos (Programming) 1973
LP (back cover) says ...
"We belive that , the MUSIC IS LOVE. United we'll be continue to make MUSIC"
At 1996 the Greek Magazine "POP & ROCK" realize a cd with all 16 songs as a Complete Discography.
PELOMA BOKIOU appears in the Greek film " A FREE GIRL"(aka "A Strange Girl) singing the song "Oi Magoi (The Wizards)".But all the movie actualy is a soundrack with music of PELOMA BOKIOU.
