THE BAND

DSCN2780-black

D16 is a female fronted punk rock band from Athens, Greece. Melodic punk rock, simplicity, loudness, intensity, 3 chord melodies, heavy distortion and a romantic fusion of rock n roll and punk sound, as it was first introduced, and since haunted our adolescence, by the Ramones. Having an EP (Shadows) released in late 2015, the band is currently working on a new full length album, which is due no later than the summer of 2017.

D16 are: Giota T. (bass, vocals) – Spyros K. (guitar) – Makis Z. (drums)

A small tribute to the Ramones
From the liner notes of “RamonesMania” by Billy Altman
.
August 1974, Washington, D.C. An entire country watches as Richard Milhous Nixon, 37th President of the United States, steps aboard a waiting helicopter and vacates the White House. News of the Nixon resignation fills newspaper pages and television and radio broadcasts the world over. From this moment forward, politics will never again be the same.

August 1974, New York City. Scattered Bowery residents pay little notice as four young men from Forest Hills, Queens, enter a small club called CBGB in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The owner, Hilly Kristal, isn’t sure if this strange-looking group – identically dressed in leather jackets, T-shirts, ripped jeans, and sneakers, and calling themselves the Ramones – are the ones who are supposed to be auditioning for a gig or just a bunch of hoodlums who’ve come to fence stolen musical equipment. They take to the stage and play a set, but even after they’re through, Kristal still isn’t sure if they’re a real band or just a bunch of hoodlums. All of their songs are very loud, very short, and very fast. In fact, the only thing separating them are the bass player’s shouts of “1-2-3-4” during the milliseconds in which they stop. He decides to book them anyway; business is bad. Their first public performance draws no attention from newspapers, radio, or television, and, in point of fact, is witnessed by a grand total of five warm bodies – six if you count the bartender’s dog. No matter. From this moment forward, rock & roll will never again be the same.
