Panousis was the vocalist and main composer of the group. Their first(unofficial)album was "Disco Tsoutsouni" (Disco Weenie) released in 1980. It was an illegally published tape, many songs ofwhich werelater rerecorded for the band's official debut, their eponymous album in 1982. The band went under the alias"Alamana'sBridge" to make a guest appearance with two songs in the compilation album "Made in Greece". In 1986, MousikesTaxiarhieswas disbanded and Panousis went solo. His subsequent successful career showed that he could be a band on hisown. Since his debut, Panousis has introduced a controversial style of rock music with humorous and sarcastic lyrics. Hissongsinclude caustic remarks on the political and social reality of Greece. His varied musical style includes mostly rock, butalsoreggae and rembetiko.

He often interacts with his audience, in a unique type of stand-up comedy, and is alsonotoriousfor his on-stage phone pranks. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tzimis_Panousis « hide
