Feeling a bit camera shy


Common Sense were formed in September 1989
by Christos Zoumpas (guitars), Nikos Deftereos (voice) Mihalis Kapadoukakis (bass), Giorgos Karanikolaou (drums & percussion).
In January 1990 Christos Alexopoulos joins the band (keyboards).
In 1992 N.Deftereos and M. Kapadoukakis leave and in 1993 they are replaced by Tatiana Stavroulaki (voice) and Sakis Birbilis (bass).

In December 1993 they release the single “Grotesque” and in December 1995 the LP “Sun Comes Up”. Both these releases were very well-received by critics and by fans of the independent Greek scene.
In January 2000 “Sun Comes Up” was included in the “Pop & Rock” magazine list of the best Greek rock albums of the period 1970-2000

In 1993-1996 the band played live in several festivals and they opened concerts for Dodgy (6/9/1995 RODON Club), Giant Sand (10/2/1996 RODON Club) and Tindersticks (8/6/1996 Lycabetus Theatre).

Some time after the Lycabetus live Common Sense disband.

In May 2006 they start recording new material with almost the same make-up (except for Christos Alexopoulos who has followed a solo career).
