Bunalimlar & Çigrisim 1969-1972 Split[Turkish Underground Rock]

(Left:Bunalimlar Right:Cigrisim)

Highly Recommended!!

great ethno-psych
this time two turkish underground bands
this where two of the more heavier bands in the turkish scene
Bunalimlar/Grup Bunalim is the best band on this compilation
they runned naked trough streets and such.

this is a excellent bootleg
has everything both bands recorded except for the Punk Rock single('78)

about bunalimlar

His is Turkey's most notorious and dirty psychedelic underground band.
They were formed in 1969 with the aim of having underground music reach wider audiences.
They couldn't succeed well as their approach was very much wilder and uncompromising than any of their peers at the time; God, they were crazy! Running all nude down the Istiklal Street, psychedelic light shows, crazy paintings all over the stage wall and screaming of "LSD! LSD!" in their live shows.
"Tas var köpek yok" is their first single from 1969 when they were very raw in sound and the interrupting guy at the end of the song is none other than Cem Karaca who managed them at the time.
Later on Bunalimlar went on to be a psychedelic hard rock band and disbanded by 1972. Their records are in "golden grail" status right now!!!


"Four wild-ass tracks by Çigrisim, a fuzzed-out heavy trio circa 1970. Except for the Turkish lyrics, they could just as well be from, say, Holland or Michigan. Never mind, though, they offer up inspired distorto 'delica."

go get it!

Did anyone else find anything amiss with the first two Cigrism tracks? I can obtain them from the .rar file, but can't open them using iTunes ...

On a different note, thank you for the consistently great quality of your shares. You are certainly a bright spot to the day!

I'm having the same trouble as STEEL posted above, the first two tracks seem corrupted

otherwise, thank you so much. I've been looking for some middle eastern psych stuff for a very long time, this is the first one i've heard that fit the idea I had in my head. Can somebody recommend more stuff like this?

I also had thattrouble with the first two tracks, but I was able to re-record them by playing from one computer into another, as even though I can't open the files in my music editing program I can still play them with Winamp or Windows Media Player.
Thanks, great music! This is the most fuzzedstuff I've heardfrom Turkey.
