Algir, What Could Have Been The Major Backthrough In Israeli Music, Is Nothing More Than A Memory
Setup in the early days of the millenium, Algir led out the way to become one of the most popular rock group in israel, but something in that paved road failed.
Aviv tried to struggle his way, but couldn't manage, Gavriel and him, found them self in Rabbinical college in jerusalem, where they tried to connect with god but couldn't, and soon after again in some what ironical way led them self to institution.
gavriel and aviv, were left with huge amount of residues from the past, and in 2004, they released under barby records 'Menoim kadima' (engines full ahead), which caought allmost every ear that took the time to listen, the songs again weren't adapted by the mainstream audioance, since major radio stations such as GALGALZ, which is an israeli militery music only radio, refused to give an opportunity due to strict 'moral codes' that the band didn't accept.
The fans grew rapidly, without the help of israeli radio stations, and it seems that at last algir is riding the way to success. after quite an exhausted tour, which were a complete sold out, algir found herself crashed, probably due to mental exhaustion, which led to Gavriel's hospitalization.
Aviv gedge, left back to the south, to start working on his new material, and it seemed as if all the ALGIR concept is gone, which left the audioance, with nothing but the sweet (sour) memories.
as to July 2007, the main web site was also gone from the search engines, and with this sad notice, a few fans decided to bring up and new version of the site.
