Ian on the Turkish “Pretty Boy Floyd”

Posted in Uncategorized by nissarhusseinkhan on March 19, 2010

After you’re done at the Fonotopia blog, head on over to Excavated Shellac. Ian has a beast of an article on a revenge-themed song from 1910 that he says is basically the Turkish version of Woody Guthrie’s “Pretty Boy Floyd.”

You’ll hear this song when we post Fonotopia episode #3, Music of the Ottoman Empire. Keep your eyes and ears peeled!
