Description

Nedir Ne Degildir on LP

Vinyl LP repressing including an exact reproduction of the original gatefold pop-up sleeve. As Turkey's political factions turned more and more violent in the late 1970s, Buscemi-eyed Edip Akbayram was nearly beaten up by rioting audiences for daring to sing about rural points of view that were naturally critical of Istanbul's political leaders. This second album of Anatolian Psychedelia, originally released in 1977, showed defiance even in it's gatefold art, with a drawing of the band members seeming to grow straight out the ground, covered in plant tendrils. Akbayram poached members of Mogollar and Baris Manco's Kurtalan Ekspres to get the best fuzz breaks and Hammond slams and put them straight in your ears. The band also tried out some mixes that pushed the vocals or a particular instrument way up front, and of course long, low, reverberant welcomes from Edip's echo-covered voice.
