This here is some great great Turkish psychedelic folk/rock from one of the most “politically outspoken” folk singers to ever come out of Turkey. Selda Bağcan first made a name for herself as a traditional Anadolu protest singer in the early 70’s but in 1976 she released her first proper full length album. And with this self titled album….let’s just say she took folk music to outer space. Very very impressive

Here’s some words by Finders Keepers:
The music you are about to hear defies categorisation. But for all intents and multi-purposes, this record is a folk album. Embodying all the aesthetic watermarks of a private press country LP, Selda’s debut long player from 1976 has masqueraded as lamb dressed as mutton, throwing many a discerning wolf from the gourmet scent. Behold! Space age, Anatolian, electronic, progressive-protest, psych-folk-funk-rock from the Middle East. All of the above ingredients are presented immaculately with up-most authenticity and conviction to create a delectable hybrid concoction which has never been replicated or equalled in the 3 mutant decades since its recording

“All Killer” Finders Keepers Records 1-20 Mixed by The Gaslamp Killer

Time for yet another musical journey. Finders Keepers Records is an amazing label that prides themselves on resurrecting a “lost world of undiscovered vinyl artefacts from the annals of alternative pop history.” They wander and sift through the huge world of sound for the wonderfully bizarre to compile together for all of our benefit.

Here’s some words by UGHH:
Late last year, in the Finders Keepers Manchester vaults we celebrated our 20th conquest. It was a dignified affair with a guest list consisting of mods, rockers, proggers, hip-hoppers, teenage vampires, Welsh dragons, fly killers, escaped convicts, Turkish protesters, studio chimpanzees, and Judo experts. Scrambled, sampled, angle-poised and untangled, this mix hears Gaslamp Killer at his best – given envious carte blanche on our vast musical palette featuring tracks that have previously been savored and championed by the likes of Madlib, Oh-No, Erykah Badu, Jarvis Cocker,and Morrissey amongst others.
