Alive She Died started their music journey in the year 1983. The initial band members were: Daphne Gerogianni - voice, Xenophon Xenios - keyboards/drum programming, George Ginis - keyboards/sounds, Tina Goudis - bass. The sound of their music was characterized as dark, attributed to their use of synthesizers, bass and drum-machines and the deep melancholic feeling coming from Daphne's performance. Their first-ever live performance took place at "Pegasus" club in Athens, on February 21st, 1985 and it was followed by four more live gigs. On March 1985, the band self-released 300 copies of "Viva Voce", their cassette tape release which was to become famous. During the autumn of 1986, the initial line-up seized to exist. The band's last live performance - with the addition of new members - took place in "Madd" club in Athens, in March 1987.
March 2017: Geheimnis Records is releasing 700 hand-numbered copies of the long-awaited vinyl issue, half of them on black and half on clear transparent vinyl. The release includes all the songs featured on "Viva Voce", plus unreleased material from the band's active era (1984 - 1986). The remastering of the tracks - which originated from original cassette tapes - was done by Stelios Efentakis at studio "Ritual", during the summer of 2016. The release includes an insert with lyrics, photos and credits of the additional musicians, as well as detailed information on the songs and the instruments used during the original recordings.
