 (A Small Collection of) Press Comments 

...The sound of "The Plastic Box" is definitely pushing Greek music forwards. We think, though, that the true power of the record will be made more obvious by its sound's reverberation than the sound itself. Its capability to intervene, preface things to come and reveal hidden sides of soundscapes that we until now used to consider as worn out, will then be fully appreciated. In all cases, the ones who'll choose to join the trip will be carried away. 

Spyros Alexopoulos (on The Plastic Box), "Hi-tech" magazine (GR), July 2000

Until now, success has eluded Greece in its bid for any kind of credible homegrown music. That's all about to change, thanks largely to Athens' Hitch-Hyke stable which has discovered a wealth of talent in and around the ancient city. By far, the most interesting is one man called Antonis Livieratos, whose 1998 LP "To Terastio Kitrino Pragma" (roughly: "That Huge Yellow Thing") is cut from the same organic cloth as Tortoise...

...This is no exaggeration: this is the revenge of independent productions.

Antonis Livieratos invents a strange small ornament: A Huge Yellow Thing that feels nostalgic about the future.

Anything new by Antonis Livieratos is a major event even if it is as short in duration as the 24 minute/ four track long "Kokkinos Ouranos". His urban lyricism is preserved, here, intact. As intact as  his ability to keep the borderline between calmness and paranoia obscure.

 "SOUND & Hi Fi" magazine, September 1999

Antonis Livieratos is, definetly one of the most thrilling personalities in contemporary greek music...
