Skasiarheio - The Flyers

Dear Garage60s friends,

I present you here a garage masterpiece from Greece, Skasiarheio (Truant) - The Flyers. It is a song I've been trying to find it for ages now (I had it only in a cassette recorded from a radio show with lots of bias). I think that this would be one of the rarest 60s pop songs that have been recorded in Athens during the sixties.
Not much is known about The Flyers, who most probably hailed from Athens and most probably cut a couple of singles after 1967.
This song is sang in the Greek language, and the lyrics are about a young pupil falling in love with a young girl and in order to see her he had to play truant from school. Back in the 60s almost 50% or more of the Greek Highscools, were divided to Male and Female schools. So young adolescents had to figure many ways to be able to meet their love. So in this song, everything was solved after 9 months when school was over, and the young couple were free to see each other.

The vocals are not so great in my opinion and the lyrics quite lame (but we talk about teenage music anyway), and I wish the song was in the English language.

But the music is great with a swirling farfisa, nice guitar breaks in the appropriate sections of the composition and quite powerfull bass guitar.

I am sure you will enjoy it and appreciate a true garage gem coming out from a non speaking English teenage group
