Why I Smoke Cocaine - Γιατί Φουμάρω Κοκαΐνη by Dirty Fuse published on 2013/07/30 10:59:42 +0000 Surfbetika! Greek rebetika surfed up! Dirty Fuse leave sunsets and beaches and venture on a journey through time with seven rebetika songs. They re-visit an age of hashish dens and taverns, and find themselves stranded in the joints where Misirlou was first heard, the song with the seductive oriental vibes that influenced California`s surf music of the sixties. "Rebetiko originated in the music of the larger Greek cities, most of them coastal, in today's Greece and Asia Minor during the early 20th century. In these cities the cradles of rebetiko were likely to be the taverna, the ouzeri, the hashish dens, and the prison."
