Cem Karaca - "Die Kanaken" {Turkey} (1982) psych/prog

Merhaba! I think this album stands for its lyrics more than its melody, Cem Karaca was one of the left-wing artist appeared an turkish scene at late 60s. Because of his view and albums, he faced some difficulties, and moved to Germany at early 80s. This record pressed at Germany

info;
"For millions of Turks the musician Cem Karaca, who has died of a heart attack aged 58, was a phenomenon who, for nearly four decades mirrored the transformations of his homeland, displayed resolute unwillingness to accept the dead hand of authority, and embodied aspirations for peace and social justice. The rock singer - who had a voice of extraordinary forcefulness - became successively a leader of the left, a fugitive from Turkey's military government in the 1980s, and finally an advocate of coexistence between Turkey's secularists and Islamists. Through his music he reached out to the people of Anatolia and bridged the gap between them and the musical life of Istanbul's western-oriented middle classes. Karaca was the son of actors and he began life in Istanbul. He was most at ease when among that city's bohemian circles. His parents sent him to Robert Academy, the city's American high school, in the hope that he would become a diplomat, but after Karaca discovered that his singing impressed girls, he turned to music. His mother encouraged his singing and Karaca was also dabbling with theatre. In 1967 Karaca and his group, the Apaslar, won a song contest and he went professional. He was soon one of the country's most popular singers. read more here

harika bir albüm... bunu da silsinler de görelim; bırak Almanyayı İngiltere'yi, Cem Karaca'nın memleketi Türkiye'de bile baskısı yok albümün!
Dolayısıyla bunun (önceki pek çok "world prog" albümü gibi) yüklenmesi mükemmel bir "kamu hizmeti"... Kerkenez şovn derdine yansın.

Kutluyorum nahavanda, piyasada zor bulunan diğer Cem Karaca'ları da bekliyorum senden (örneğin, Best of Vol. 5 adıyla çok kötü kayıtlı bir kopyası yayınlanan Hasret umarım vardır elinde! Bekle Beni de varsa tadından yenmez hani :) )

Man, you are incredible! A thousand help for your time!

nahavanda best of 5 bende var aslında (şu anda kuzende ama 1-2 ay içinde kendisinden alabilirim) fakat dediğim gibi piyasadaki baskının kaydı çok kötü. Orijinal "Hasret" plağı veya kasedinden (hatta Almanya'da vaktiyle CD olarak da çıkmış olabilir) bir kayıt bulabilirsek çok iyi olur (elime geçerse iletirim, söz!)

bu arada Die Kanaken da yalan oldu... müsait bi zamanda tekrar yüklersen çok makbule geçer...

Hi nahavanda,
Here's some more from my seedy past!
Volunteers - Black Membrane Vol. 1
I play bass on a couple of tracks (the ones with the worst bass playing)and wrote the words to one (the one with the worst words)
Not for the faint hearted this one!
May be enjoyed by those of you who gladly endure Capt. Beefheart/Belew era King Crimson.
