Georgi from Sofia based melodic hardcore band EXPECTATIONS went rck’n’roll with his new alter ego project George Drama, and today we’re stoked to give you the band’s new wicked video for the song “Roll The Dice” (Straight From The Heart Records), spiced up with the band’s special list of their top garage punk rock influenced worth a check!
Asked about their next releases, Georgi unveils that “the upcoming GD songs are different than Roll The Dice. I really want to experiment and record ideas that are quite different then Expectations.”
Speaking of his hardcore pack, EXPECTATIONS are in the process of writing their 4th Full Lenght Album, so keep your eyes and ears open!
George Drama’s debut single The Town was released in April 2020:
“Since I’ve been actively playing shows, organizing shows, and releasing music for the last 15 years I want to leave a message for the younger enthusiasts that are getting into the scene.” – says Georgi.

The Hives – Veni Vidi Vicious
This is probably the main influence around creating the song Roll The Dice. I wanted it to be short, straight on point and very catchy. At the same time for it to be radio-friendly, but keep the raw punk spirit in it mixed with a rock & roll vibe.
Viagra Boys – Welfare Jazz
What can I say, again Sweden. In my opinion, this is probably the most real new Rock & Roll band out there right now.
Arctic Monkeys- Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not
This is their debut, and in my opinion their best album. Speechless. Masterpiece.
The Fratellis – Costello Music
I remember the first time I went to work on a student’s brigade in the US. It was 2010 and the first thing I did after I got my first paycheck was to go to the closest record store and buy music. After I bought the recently released album by Parkway Drive – Deep Blue I found The Fratellis album Costello Music. I managed to listen to the new PD maybe 2 weeks after I bought it as I was really hyped and impressed by the Fratellis album. Two completely different styles of music but for sure The Fratellis dominated my heart and ears haha :)
Misfits – Static Age
Personally, I think this is the best punk rock album of all time. Way ahead of its time. A true diamond in Punk history. The first time I heard it was when I was 16 and then it kind of opened my eyes to Danzig’s other projects. Samhain and of course Danzig. Still a big fan of his music.
