Band E.M.I.L. from Romania was founded in March 2000 and plays what it feels. In short punk-rock (second wave), a style popular (mainstream) in the United States - especially California, with influences from the same area: ska, reggae, dub, upsteady. The appearance of the band is a natural reaction to the rock scene of the `98 -` 00, which died styles dominated since the early 90's and 80's if not.
Since the beginning, E.M.I.L. There were two main musical influences: Green Day and Sublime - two fundamental bands punk-rock/ska development style (punk new wave) of the USA, in the `94 -` 00. This was the first direction in which they wrote and recorded the first six original songs that later appeared on the demo `aliens go winter skiing`

Meanwhile, the band filmed the video for Flowering Trees - video that is aired on TV stations during the launch of the EP's Green Cocktail. The disc is successful in the first months of its release due to band concerts, but interest in this disc gradually decreases due to the lack of involvement of the record in radio and TV promotion of the product. There was the inevitable termination of contact with A & A and promoting independent band in the coming years.
