The Burger Project – We live in Athens [2009]



The Burger Project are here to turn your favorite songs into “hybrids”!! They have a spicy sense of humor, no artistic arrogance but all the knowledge, passion and talent it comes with.
They are a cover band. Something common in Greece and the world over since the 50’s. You may recall a small band called the Beatles who started out like that. Nothing new here then, so why bother? Simply because The Burger Project found a way to combine fun and imminence, the basic ingredients of a good live concert and also being inventive in a way that you don’t expect when you seek a good night out.
Their surreal outfits, uncommon for Greek audiences, provoke and alienate at first. Until they start playing. Then you realize that their eccentricity is only the visual analogy to their ground breaking music. You also understand that choosing their attire is a natural process similar to how the breathe life into an 80’s hit like ‘Take My Breath Away’, giving it a Jamaican twist or ‘swinging’ ‘Another One Bites the Dust’. In their album ‘We Live in Athens’ they talk about relentlessly mixing musical memories of a whole generation, rediscovering and covering ‘diamonds’ from swing to punk, and from disco to country: Clash, Alice Cooper, Queen, Ramones, Thin Lizzy, Godfathers, White Stripes, Prince, Fats Domino, Johnny Cash, Sonics, Undertones, Tsitsanis et. What they don’t say is that someone might even fall in love with a song that they used to hate until they heard it from The Burger Project.




Enjoy!
