Biography

Full biography of both current members as well as history of the band 100% from its birth.

Check bio
Bass guitar, vocals, dgembe, percussion, noises.

Marco founder and only surviving original member of 100% was born in London, UK to Greek parents on 29th April 1965. On Dec 9th 1980 (the day after John Lennon was shot) he bought his first bass a cheap Gibson SG copy made by Kay. His influences were the punk and ska that was coming out at the time eg The Police, The Ruts, The Jam, Tubeway Army, Blondie and the 2Tone ska movement especially The Specials, Madness, The Beat and The Selecter, which lead to reggae influences, Bob Marley, Maxi Priest and Aswad. Initial bass style was influenced by Horace Panter (The Specials) and Bruce Foxton (The Jam). Foxton is a plectrum player and tho Marco never used one, liked the sound which lead to Marco’s aggressive finger playing, his attempt to recreate a plectrum sound with his bare hands!

His style was further enhanced on hearing Mark King, he fell in love with the funky fast slapping but did it in his own aggressive punk style which didn’t go down well with his bandmates! No-one else was playing like that…until Flea from RHCP got well known then it was considered cool to attack the bass in an aggressive but funky way!

He was then introduced to Rush. Geddy Lee’s aggressive sound and progressive playing also becoming an influence, added to that saw Pink Floyd live and that added the progressive and psychedelic influences to the aggressive slap and punk style. At around that time he started listening to Motorhead after seeing their concert on TV, the mix of rock and punk and the huge sound from just 3 people really impressed him! He managed to see them live too. On the other end of the musical scale he got into The Cocteau twins another 3 piece but playing ambient Indie style, actually v hard to categorise! These influences gave Marco a v wide range of playing styles, from hard and fast to slow melodic, ambient and psychedelic.

He spent over 25 years playing in bands including punk, funk, blues, reggae, prog rock bands. Writing songs, playing over 2000 gigs all over London and Southern England aswell as some tours in Germany. The material was not only original songs but later on played covers in all styles for over 10 years which gave him a lot of versatility and great training for writing songs! All the best bands started playing covers and this he feels is the best preparation for song writing. He has also played many sessions, taught privately and in music workshops. He formed 100% in 1996 and after 10 years of a successful career in London, got married and relocated to Czech Republic in 2006 (for more see band bio).

    -
    Band are formed in west London as a 3 piece, with John Hire (drums), Steve Morey (guitar, vocals), Marco Frangos (bass, vocals). Originally a covers band playing all styles of their favourite bands and music from the 60s to 90s and beyond! They have a residency in Brentford, west London which they then move to NW London (Harrow) hosting their own jam night where they inspired many young bands and started to get a big following. They got more and more gigs including a residency in London’s famous Camben town Caenarven Castle, which they held for 10 years and drew a massive regular crowd.
  • 1998
    -
    John the drummer leaves to do a tour in Australia. After continuing for a while as a duo, they recruit Rupert Mann (drums) and Alex Kennard (guitar, now a No1 folk singer!). They continue with their weekly schedule of between 3 and 5 gigs a week.
  • 2000
    -
    Alex and Rupert leave to focus on their original band and John returns to the drum seat. At the same time adding guitarist and Pink Floyd expert Darren Ragg who’s band Marco played with in the early days. Darren immediately added a more psychedelic sound and shared his love of ska and the bands sound started to diversify!
  • 2001
    -
    The band starts to write original songs and Steve leaves due to musical differences! He is replaced by multi instrumentalist Steve "Bongo" Payne, who played keys, didgeridoo and bongos! Also shared vocals. Again this expanded the band’s sound. Shortly after Marie Benton joined on sax and vocals. This helped the band get a wider choice of gigs including festivals, weddings, parties and a funeral!
  • 2002
    -
    The band records a 5 song EP with producer and sound master Tony Mulcahy. Sadly Marie and Darren leave a few months after the CDs are produced. Steve Howarth joins on guitar and the band carry on with even more gigs.
  • 2005
    -
    The band come to CZ to play at Marco’s wedding! At this point both Steves leave due to financial pressure. 100% are now a 2 piece with only John on drums and vocals and Marco. They play a few gigs in Uk including some festivals but decide to relocate to Czech Republic.
  • 2006
    -
    Marco moves to CZ to have his first child and carry on with the band now in Europe. John plans to move in the future and flies over for gigs.
  • 2007
    -
    Later that year John decides to stay in UK. Marco plays some gigs with great Czech guitarist Ivan Jašek and his drummer Pedro from Brno band Annies Trip.
  • 2008
    -
    Marco meets session funky drummer Petr Mori and together play many good gigs culminating with recording a 10 track CD (Naming of the One) in May 2010 in Prague, with Slovak producer Marecsek. Sadly Petr leaves shortly after due to family commitments.
  • 2011
    -
    BUT then Marco meets Bořejk who was originally a fan of the band and hence already knew some of the songs. Mr B as Marco calls him turned out to be the drummer he had been waiting for all these years! A powerful and versatile double bass drum (aka Thunderfoot!) drummer with 100% attitude! Together to this day they have played many great gigs and plan to do even more!
  • 2013
    -
    The band record 4 songs in AB studios (an old KINO) they play totally LIVE same room, no headphones, no screens, no overdubs (except one solo and vox), 2 older songs and 2 new ones.

They are currently writing more material and planning a video for 2 of the new recordings as a double A side single…then new album, more and bigger gigs, spreading the 100% LOVE and MUSIC from the heart to more and more people!

WE HOPE YOU WILL BE ONE OF THEM! SEE YOU ON THE ROAD!

Drums, percussion, vocals, noises.

At that time he sat behind a drum-kit and immediately after the first strike he was absorbed. The original appeal of mindless hitting something and thinking that it is someone pissing you off at the moment, grew into love for playing drums. As a self-taught enthusiast he started to shape a unique style, playing a drum-kit consisting of mainly buckets and canisters. His development as a drummer was aided by getting a set of Amati drums, which he played for various reasons for 5 years – an astronomical achievement for a drummer!

After getting aquainted with rock bands of that era he discovered punk. It seems like an ideal choice now, because a musician who never played punk nor has at least a bit of punk attitude in his music, is simply shit. At a time he becomes fascinated by metal and grindcore as well. The biggest inspiration were therefore bands like Napalm Death, Suicidal Tendencies, The Exploited, System of a down, Slipknot and other classic stuff.

Since the very beginning he was active in varied bands. He played concerts and jam sessions and is a guest player in a few bands too. In a band KORISZ he was given his drummer name „Bořejk“ (something like „El Destructo“ in Spanish), which accurately characterizes his style. The most successful band is P.K. – irresistable pack of (not only) punk parties – with whom he played numerous overwhelming and sometimes even hardly believable gigs, won some competitions (sometimes without even knowing that they competed), created two studio recordings and a few live ones, went twice on a tour in Germany and once on a two weeks tour of the Peoples Republic of China!

During more than a decade of his music career Bořejk opens up to various styles. He incorporates into his original punk-metal frenzy elements of funky, raggae, ska or disco and for a time he even listens to jazz. As he became more skilled in technique he could afford to introduce into his music even elements of grindcore or drum and bass. You can still feel a lot of aggression and energy. Moreover, he didn’t lose any of his original punk feeling and with an attitude of “there’s no tommorow” his drumer presentation is really hot! Bořejk has become a versatile and sought for drummer.

The turning point for him was attending a concert of a band 100% consisting of a bass player Marco Frangos and a drummer John Hire. Wholly fascinated by their fantastic music and unrestrained performance he instantly became their fan. Later he encountered the band several times and became aquainted with Marco. It didn’t take long and after the drummer Petr Mori left, Marco contacted Bořejk for cooperation. Together they immediately and without practice played their first gig in Nové Město na Moravě. The boys felt that they had been looking for each other and 100% took its contemporary shape. Since 2011 these chaps tirelessely travel around Czech Republic and with one-hundred percent dedication they give hapiness and energy to ever growing audience.
