The last words of THIS live review by K. Karderinis are "we were already complete and really happy". These exact words are to describe our emotions following our performance at Eightball Club. We have to thank everyone for showing up and especially for letting us know you love us so much! In these last 5 years we are performing we've never had such a warmhearted feedback! Live reviews, blog posts, your e-mails describe it as the best 2L8 performance so far and I shall agree with you, as I've been trying hard to build this band and I have to admit it has reached a level beyond my expectations! It just feels the right thing to say; all these incredible musicians are nothing less than a blessing for my life...
You see, even though the 2L8 vehicle is getting more popular by the years the journey doesn't get much easier. On the contrary! On the contrary! This foolish persistence, or obsession I shall say, not to follow the industry and the market's demands accomplished to keep us in the underground scene which was quite hard considering the reviews, the following. But the only way to live with some human dignity these days is to struggle... Especially in a country going bankrupt and about to be slaved by the International Monetary Fund. Lately many blogs and forums from all around the world mention and share our music, we have to thank you all, for you see there is no better way for us to communicate what we do! This is your greatest support! Music is and must be Free! Enough with the tyranny of the industry already that made us hollow and sad!
I wanted to add this: NOBODY REPRESENTS 2L8 IN ANY WAY. If you don't use our contact section to reach us you don't reach 2L8.
Be good boys and girls, take care of yourselves and of each other...
K. the Clown
Live dates coming soon.

The poster was designed by a great artist and a 2L8 friend Vassilis Gogtzilas.
Check his unique style here!
Apart from May Roosevelt's work which you might have had the pleasure to discover and enjoy her "Panda" debut, another 2L8 member is really busy lately.

News, news, news!!!
After a busy 2L8 year we decided to take a break for the summer. But since summer is over we are back on track!
So what are we up to? Recording!
We are currently working on new songs, recording some parts for a new album(?), and also preparing for a few winter/spring live dates!
In the Video section you will find the official video of "Clown" from Abbie Gale's second album "2" (Inner Ear Records, 2007) directed, shot and edited by Andreas Lampropoulos.
Cast : Evira (Abbie Gale's lead singer), K The Clown and Faidra Asimakopoulou who shares the same interest in Hannah Montana as K. does. Yeah!
Looks like we got ourselves another fan! Read Lena Platonos & Bosko's "HE&SHE" Analysis here. Thank you!
In case you've missed this unbelievable review by Εva Me read it now.
Last, we now have a deviantART account. After some consideration it looks like at this time it is the easiest way to upload pictures. And each one of them will be downloadable in high resolution. And that goes to anyone from the PRESS visiting the 2L8 official website. Visit here. Permanent link in the Gallery section.
