Antonis Livieratos was born in
Athens, Greece in 1961. He has extremely vivid memories from his
childhood, but we shall not refer to them, since, probably, nobody
cares about them.
During his adolesence he
developed a rather sporadic relationship with classical musical training
interchanged with periods of an urgent desire to become a bluesman.
So he switches from keybords to harmonica. He never meets Devil at the
crossroads, though, he spends his time trying to decide if he prefers King
Crimson, Velvet Undeground, Kraftwerk or Jimi Hendrix. (Between you and
me, he has still not decided, but nobody cares about that.)
He is admitted to Medical
School and moves to Ioannina. Though it may sound strange, he does
graduate, and he even works as a Pathologist for some years. (Some people
swear that he has always been fascinated by microscopes as much as he has
been fascinated by guitars, but nobody cares about that either).
In Ioannina, he is
acquainted to bass player Vaggelis Boulouhtsis, who has similar musical
preferences and ambitions. After two years of futile attempts to find
other musicians to share their vision, they start performing and recording
as a duo. They call themselves "Kefaleo 24" ("Chapter
24") after Syd Barrett's song by the same title. But things from now
on, may be of some interest to some of you, so the rest of the story is
not part of this page...
