Libido Blume were a post punk/new wave band from Athens, Greece. They were part of the blooming Athenian Underground Rock scene of the 80s and 90s. The band was founded out of the ashes of Akis Boyatzis' Cpt.Nefos, by Akis Boyatzis and Dimitirs Bouroussas, in 1985.

Libido Blume's music was a mix of garage nostalgia, electro-pop, electro-funk and post-punk. They represented Greece at the 1986 Biennale for young Artists, a European festival of the Arts, in Thessaloniki, side by side with other important Greek Bands of the time such as No Man's Land.

They released two LP Albums and one EP. Jon Langford (of The Mekons and The Three Johns) produced their final LP, Liquid Situation, in 1987." After the band split up, Bogiatzis created Sigmatropic and Drenogiannis created Yeah!, two well known and well respected bands of the local Athenian scene.

On December 12, 2015, Libido Blume reunited and joined legendary Greek Bands Choris Peridereo, No Man's Land and Cpt Nefos on stage, at the 80's Live Performances Portion of the "Vinyl is Back" Vinyl Festival, which took place at Cine Keramikos.
