derdiyoklar ikilisi - disco-folk (12inch vinyl lp)


ARTIST // derdiyoklar ikilisi
LABEL // pharaway sounds (sp)
CAT // phs041lp


Pharaway Sounds present a reissue of Derdiyoklar Ikilisi's Disco-Folk, originally released in 1984. More demented, brain-damaging Turkish electro-saz and synth drums galore by the mighty Derdiyoklar duo. Anadolu pop doesn't get weirder than this. These two Turkish guys armed with electro-saz, guitar, drums, and synthesizers were hitting the Turkish market in Germany where they lived, playing their sets of traditional flavored electro-folk in weddings and circumcision feasts for Turkish emigrants in Germany. That crazy is the story, that crazy is their sound.
