Stockholm all female quartet APHRODITE would provide an early career stepping stone for musicians that subsequently came to the fore with the hard hitting DRAIN STH. The original lineup underwent many direction changes in both musical and image. Guitarist Flavia Canel and drummer Martina Axén have been together in many acts starting with Punk band LIVIN' SACRIFICE. As this act progressed the sound developed into more of a Hard Rock vein, consequently changing titles to APHRODITE in 1985. They had the song "Playing With Fire" featured on the compilation 'Sommarrock 85', followed up with an eponymous mini-album in 1986.

  1. Hi Cathy here. My current band is Rex Havoc from San Pedro .We didn’t disappear. We just took a break from each other to put it mildly. In 88, I started auditioning the girls who would answer the adds that ultimately led me to Sara, Karen and Robin. We were a foursome for 2 years. Then Karen introduced us to Sece and we just took off from there. In 91, Cathy won “Best Female Vocalist” and the song “Bigger Than Both of Us” won “Best Ballad”. Fortunately I was blessed and loved enough by my biker brothers in Topeka, Kansas to land a killer gig singing back up vocals for Black Oak Arkansas in the early 80’s. Yes the man himself, James Mangram. Jim Dandy to those in the know. He inspired me to write the song “Bigger Than Both of Us” Hector contact me if you need more scoop.
