this week, superb arab-malay grooves from the k.t. band!  there's no info to be found about this band or either of our 2 singers.. i can't even say for sure where they're from (although this cassette came out on bangkok-based yanavy records).  what i can tell you is that they have a great take on classic arabic songs.  melodies from the middle east treated to swinging rock'n'roll rhythms complete with hand-claps, surf guitar & synthesizer.  i'm really enjoying this one, hope you do too!

This one is is crazy good! It's pretty surprising to see how they deal with the lengh of the songs. I also dig the strange arabo new wavish prog pop feeling... Kind of addictive!
