Helena Merikana

Matt Barrett on Helena Merikana:
This was my Greek band. Unfortunately we live on opposite ends of the earth so I recorded basic tracks on A-Dat and then sent them around. We mixed it at Captured Live in Durham (which has since burned down). There's about 15 songs in various states of non-completion, but they will get done. I'm in no rush. 

The band was:
Parthenon Huxley: Guitars
Leigh Sioris: Bass
Ted Zarras/Chris Chamis: Drums

You can also watch and listen to my video "All My Friends from Greece"

Here is a very rare version of One More Time played by Matt and Zoe

This is a rare Dad's studio song: Another World, which later became All My Friends from Greece

This is a really great version of All My Friends from Greece by the band Winston Texas

And finally this is a song that I hoped would never be found. I made it up and recorded it while Parthenon was using the bathroom an presented it to him when he returned. It is called The Indian Song

Mine and everybody else's hero Don Dixon has recorded my song 6-Pack
