Born in Athens, Greece, in 1940, Katerina Gogou expressed her existence through acting in greek films, writing dark poems of sincere dirt, a true declaration of her disavowal of the dominant submissive lifestyle of that age. Outside any kind of circles and public relations, she embodies an aspect of greek underground. Some of her already published poems are heard in her ex-husband’s movie "Paraggelia” [based on the true story of Nikos Koemtzis], which were released later under the title "Sto Dromo” [which means in the street / on the road or something like that]. In 1993 she killed herself with pills at the age of 53. I don’t know if these poems will mean anything to those non-speaking greek, however I think the music and her voice themselves are an encounter that’s worth a try – she gives me the chills.
