Is that the one where she got her kit off but had a few lights replacing her nipples and muff?
Not a band, but still.
on The Wire's Turkish psych comp - http://www.thewire.co.uk/articles/8009/
Egon did a "Turkish funk" mix for Stones Throw (I think?) a few years ago, and I've got a feeling it turned out all the tracks were by Baris. Just look at the man: http://www.nowagainrecords.com/egons-funk-archaeology-baris-manco/
He was egyptian. Incredible stuff.
Not a band but check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2cakqOkSZg
turkish psych band with surf and dub influences - kinda sound like Sun City Girls (and they released a record on Sublime Frequencies, so there we go)...
you can d/l quite a few free albums here:
the only one I wouldn't recommend is Visions of Psychedelic Ankara which has WAY too much bad dub for my liking - not really my cup of tea
they also talk about a few turkish bands they like here:
That Wire magazine mp3 compilation that someone already posted is very recommendable, I would say. Very essential stuff there. Finders Keepers label has reissued great albums by Ersen, Selda and Mustafa Ozkent. And some LPs of the legendary Turkish label Türküola have been recently reissued:
All of that is old Turkish psychedelic / prog rock from the 70s tho. I don't know much about any contemporary artists. All I can think of now is this band Speed Caravan. They are not Turkish but they have a definite Eastern / Arabic vibe and their oud player is a total madman!
are good fun
