I am very happy to announce that you have been celebrating the 30th anniversary of the album “Stories from the Box” in three festive performances at the Shuni Amphitheater and in Tel Aviv’s Barbie!
Excited to play the songs from this album – some of them have never been performed on stage. God

After the groundbreaking “Plonter”, Rami Fortis’s second album “Stories from the Box,” an album that has been described many times since his release, arrived in 1988 as a masterpiece of Israeli rock and as one of the most influential and influential albums in the history of local music.
To mark the 30 th anniversary of the album, which is full of hits and this important piece (“The Dawn of the Sunrise”, “Monster Cat”, “Planet of the Apes”, “No Connection”), And other fans from Beit Fortis, as well as new materials from the last album.

Winter 87. The Minimal Compact band, which was active in Europe, fell apart. Rami Fortis and Barry Sakharof continued to create together and did not know where they were going. The “box” of “Stories from the Box” is none other than the television box, which was running in the background while Fortis and Sakharof would spend time together, playing with guitars and writing songs in front of the screen, which featured headlines about the first intifada in Israel. Meanwhile, at the same time, to the east of Brussels, the winds of democracy began to blow in the city of Berlin close to their hearts, where they spent a period with their former composition, although its wall has not yet fallen.

Between Brussels, where the duo lived, to Berlin, Tel Aviv and Hebron, the album “Stories from the Box” was created. Inspired by a growing sense of alienation, the distance and proximity to the country, and the emotional earthquake of a crumbling communist world in Central Europe, one can hear the spirit of the period that permeated the poems of Fortis, the first songs he wrote in Hebrew in ten years. The album has been a great success in Israel, establishing Fortis and Sakharof’s partnership for years to come, and providing the alternative sounds of the Corus guitar, the cool electronic look and post-punk aesthetics to wide local audiences through a series of genre-oriented radio hits.


Rami Fortis is one of the most influential and important voices in the history of Israeli music.

Starting in the mid-1970s, with a series of breakthrough hits, which are now the anthems used by everyone, Fortis took the punk and rock from the margins to the heart of the Israeli mainstream, in style, sound and delivery so unique to him, without compromise or consideration of what is acceptable.

His songs and albums have long been the voice of generations of fans, from his experimental days in ensembles such as Jean Conflict or Chromosome, the significant years he spent on the road and in Europe with his influential ensemble Minimal Compact, through Fortisakharof – his fruitful and canonical collaboration with his minimal partner Berry Sakharof , And of course, through his many solo albums and his greatest hits, each album is a different and personal biographical statement, meaningful in its own way.
