Nikos Portokaloglou and the Noble Bums

“This peculiar winter I felt the need to not only turn the page, but also change the book. With new songs, new partners, and a new sound, the thirst paradoxically grows rather than being quenched.
My new band is called the “Noble Bums”, because deep down we are all wandering bums. Some toughen up from the hardships, becoming cynics along the way, while others remain stubbornly sensitive, and dreamers like children. Those are the people I am always looking for; they are the ones I want to travel with. I have re-discovered young and talented musicians and I am overjoyed. Rehearsal is like a playground: I enjoy every new idea, every new sound, and I can’t wait to share with you our noble monkey-business.”
