Phoivos Delivorias blasts trap: “All these songs are so sexist and homophobic and racist”

Phoivos Delivorias was a guest on the show “Studio 4” and among other things he talked about the ERT comedy “Ta Numera” and Trap music.

The songwriter has been in discography for 33 years and has made 8 records and collaborations from Natasha Bofiliou up to the Invader.

He is now a member of the ERT family as he will launch a new 24-episode music show titled “The numbers” on September 16 at 22:00 and if the Greek national basketball team passes the Mundobasket it will be moved one week later.

Thanasis Anagnostopoulos stated that he does not belong to any category and on this he replied: “I am a “breather”.“. In general, I believe that camps and any label help third parties more, they don’t say anything about us.

Because one morning you might want to express yourself the way your grandfather used to express himself and the next morning you might want to sing a foreign song based on what you heard as a teenager. What the listener wants from the artist is to be himself. Your body is your style.”

What is “The Numbers” that will be broadcast in September on ERT?

“The Numbers” is an idea that has been floating around for several years. I mean I always liked comedy on TV and when they told me to do a music show I didn’t feel good, I didn’t think it was something I would do right. But what I really like about television is the comedy format, and I believe that Greek television already has a good tradition of this. From “Three graces” to “Para 5”.

When the people of ERT did me the honor to do it, I told them I want to do comedy. We talked about it a lot and I told them I want a comedy about Greek showbiz. We started and wrote with an awesome team of screenwriters and brainstormed hundreds of ideas to come up with what you’ll see».

And he adds: “Essentially it is a story of a man like me, of a ridiculous time of mine, who keeps dreaming that he is Atticus. But he can’t do it because he is famous in the 90s and now his life is going bad, his wife has left him and he has a children’s show called “Crocodile” and it gets millions of views and is in the news. Then a music producer finds him and gives him the opportunity to make this.”

“All this group of numbers make a shop that has the structure of numbers. Numbers mean that we are numbers, that we do numbers and that we go against the numbers“, he explained about the show.

On whether his life changed after the birth of his daughter, he confessed that: “My daughter changed my life. Until a child is born you remain a child yourself, an unsatisfied child who cannot accommodate your dreams. With the child because you are now telling a story and she observes you as a boomer.”

About the meeting he had with Manos Hatzidakis in his teenage years, he said: “Hatzidakis was like a teacher, I met him in high school and in those years they asked you which group you would choose and I said “If there is a Manos Hatzidakis school, I would go there”.

There is a courage and naivety in 15-16, I saw a show commissioned by ERT in Christmas 87-88 and I liked how well he had done the presentation and I say I want to go to Syrian, see how he rehearses, tell him I have a tape of the songs I used to write. I took the trolly and went over there and told him very shyly: “I am a colleague and luckily he listened to her”.

What does he think others think?

“We are all misunderstood people. Another may consider you a terrible slob, another may consider you his enemy, another may consider you a hero. Each of us is like this and all of us ultimately what we want is to find some people to communicate deep inside. Actually not everyone needs to know everyone’s side, so I don’t care if they haven’t gotten my humor.

When asked by the presenters if there is a song that characterizes him: “A song that characterizes me is “Balada”, which is on my last album. It says everything about who I am.”

Regarding music that has changed a lot in recent years he said: “Now the trash in recent years has taken on an aggressive and cynical form. All these songs are so sexist and homophobic and racist. I’m 17 years old and my dream is bags of thousands. This is because it is a sign of the times that has to do with the way these children are raised. It’s a trend and it will pass!”

On whether he was ever tempted to make a lot of money, he said: “It was never a primary goal in my life. When I happened to be well paid, I was happy because I considered it something unexpected. My joy now that I’m doing “The Numbers” is that I’ll see them tomorrow morning and we’ll communicate with the world.”

“When I was in the 90s I had guilty pleasures on the sex channels, I miss the free-spiritedness of the decade. I think society as a whole had more humor and tolerance and joie de vivre,” he said of the guilty pleasures he once had.”
