And the SPITFIRE story begins….
1984: Dinos Kostakis – vocals, George Velentzas – Keyboards, Thanos Kremidas – bass, Kostas Kiriakidis – drums and Elias Logginidis – guitars, work on their own material.
1986: SPITFIRE is invited to open the SAXON concert in Athens. That same summer, the band is in the studio recording FIRST ATTACK. It was little after the recording that singer Dinos Kostakis went into coma after a motorcycle accident.
1990: To avoid legal complications the band’s name at least for a short time changes to SPEEDFIRE. Elias – guitars, George Maniatis – drums, Takis Tsamouropoulos – guitars- vocals and Fotis “Wolf” Anagnostou – bass. MOLON LAVE RECORDS is to release their next LP. A live show in RODON CLUB is recorded for that, the sound is a real mess and with a very poor mixing they finally release “100% LIVE” LP.
2007: Alex “HANNIBAL” Balakakis – vocals, Panos Chadjiioannidis – guitars, Nikos Michalakakos – Bass and of course Elias Logginidis, SPITFIRE is recording again!!! DIE FIGHTING is the name of the new album, released by Emotion Art in 2009.
