Ian on the Turkish “Pretty Boy Floyd”
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!
