Pharaway Sounds present a reissue of Ersen's debut album Dünden Bugüne, originally released in 1977. Ersen is one of Anatolian rock's most sheerly talented vocalists. Ersen spent time in Moğollar, 3 Hür-El, and Cem Karaca's Kardaşlar before cementing his reputation as the front man of Dadaşlar. His voice can range from one that has a soft edge (where he swallows his notes a bit, like a muezzin would), to growling belt-outs that could have fronted any '80s metal act. Ersen and his ever-changing backup band wore Slade haircuts and loud jackets with rainbow pants or silver platform shoes, and they grew their moustaches just as long as the Beatle-bangs of their western counterparts. Synth-wizz, funk breaks, and fuzzed-out prog riffage back one of Anatolian rock's best vocalists -- Turkish psych-rock with some amazing funk drums and fuzzed-out guitars. Comes in gatefold sleeve with original artwork; Includes insert with liner notes by Angela Sawyer (Weirdo Records); Remastered sound.
