can not be controlled, rebel, independent ART GANG !!!
 
Dinar Bandosu is a psychedelic rock band from Istanbul, Turkey rooted in the tradition of 70s and 90s Turkish psychedelia. Aiming to transmit their sound universally from the past to the future, they extend the limits of neo-Ottoman culture. Their music sounds like a mixture of Erkin Koray, Mogollar, Okay Temiz, Barıs Manco, Mavi Isiklar, Syd Barrett’s “Punk” Floyd, The Doors, 13th Floor Elevators, Primal Scream, Pixies, The Stooges, Velvet Underground, Joy Division, Spritualized, 70s’ Turkish movie soundtracks, krautrock and Turkish art music. The early Dinar Bandosu contributed a Syd Barrett mixed cover of "Interstellar Vegetable Man" to a global fan compilation, recording project. Dinar Bandosu plays psychedelic groovy Ottoman folk rock and they have two official releases: "Saykodelikdesik" (2007) and "Aya da Gidelim Osman" (2010) from Utopya Muzik (www.bagimsizmuzik.com).

After some brilliant, long and extremely different performances in the underground Istanbul scene, they released their debut album “Saykodelikdesik” in June 2007. The album was recorded at M.I.A.M., the Center for Advanced Studies in Music at Istanbul Technical University, by: Aziz Berk Erten, Mehmet Ates (producer), and Dinar Bandosu. It was released by Ütopya Muzik by Ayhan Orhuntas. The album was well received by the media (even the mainstream). The first video “En Güzel Kadın Istanbul” from Saykodelikdesik was broadcast on the country’s top music channel. After releasing the first album, Dinar Bandosu played numerous summer festivals and events up until their second album release which was released early 2010.

The second album, "Aya da Gidelim Osman" was recorded by Serhat Ersöz (of the band "Mogollar") in his recording studio S.E.S. Mixing and was mastered by Serhat Ersöz, Oguzcan Sehiraltı, and Dinar Bandosu. The album was completed by the end of May 2009 and was released from Utopia Music on 1st February 2010. "Aya da Gidelim Osman" means: "Let's go to the moon Osman", symbolizing the enslaved and insulted human kind today. Osman is the name of the dog of band member Asaf Zeki Yüksel. The concept of the album refers to escape from the world and its unsightliness on the 40th anniversary of the moon landing.

Dinar Bandosu was re-formed in mid-2012 and started to write new songs for their third studio album.

Current members of Dinar Bandosu are: Asaf Zeki YÜKSEL (ney, theremin, trumpet, analog synthesizer, hose, and backing vocals), Yılma KARATUNA (drums, percussion, and backing vocals), Ali Asaf SARICA (vocals), Douglas VEGAS (electric guitar and keyboard) and Erdem AYDAS (bass guitar and baglama).
Broad Information
 
"Dinar Bandosu" takes its name originally from one of the underground Turkish poets called Ece Ayhan. In his one of his writings, there is an imaginary band of the Turkish intellectuals and artists playing a variety of Western and Turkish musical instruments. Nevertheless, this band always stood as an imaginary project as these intellectuals and artists never played any musical instruments. "Dinar" is a town in the province of Afyon (which means opium in English) in western Turkey. Afyon used to have huge amount of fields of opium until the U.S. banned production in the 60s.

Dinar Bandosu started playing music by covering psychedelic anthems. In early 2003 they had an offer from “Have You Got It Yet?” - Syd Barrett global compilation project and they recorded an interesting version called “Interstellar Vegetable Man” which had good feedback from critics. Afterwards, they began to record their own songs in 2005. The band was reformed and after a few member changes, the sound of Dinar Bandosu became a bit garage and more experimental, neo-Ottoman psychedelia.

“Their music, which is free-minded,
is not dependent on the administrative borders of geography.
It is revolutionary and full of black-humor!”


Dinar Bandosu released their first official album "Saykodelikdesik" in June 2007. The album was recorded at M.I.A.M., the Center for Advanced Studies in Music at Istanbul Technical University, by: Aziz Berk Erten, Mehmet Ates (producer) and Dinar Bandosu. It was released by Ütopya Muzik. The album was well received by the media (even the mainstream). The first video “En Güzel Kadın Istanbul” from Saykodelikdesik was broadast on the country’s top mucic channel. After releasing the first album, Dinar Bandosu played numerous summer festivals and events up until their second album release which was released early 2010.

The second album, "Aya da Gidelim Osman" was recorded by Serhat Ersoz (of the band "Mogollar") in his recording studio S.E.S. Mixing and mastering was handled by: Serhat Ersoz, Oguzcan Sehiraltı and Dinar Bandosu. The album was completed by the end of May 2009 and was released from Utopia Music on 1st February 2010.

"Aya da Gidelim Osman" means: "Let's go to the moon Osman". Symbolizing the enslaved and insulted human kind today. Osman is the name of the dog of band member Asaf Zeki Yüksel. The concept of the album refers to escape from the world and its unsightliness on the 40th anniversary of the moon landing (if that really happened). The album consists of anti-racism and sexism, relations, social awareness and unity in the communities through the unique psychedelic and groovy elements of the band. Additionally, Eugene Hutzovina and Oren Kaplan from the gypsy-punk band Gogol Bordello participated in the recording of two songs in the album: "Sulukule Hatırası" [In memory of Sulukule (Sulukule is a historical site in Istanbul where gypsy musicians used to live and were deported)], and "Gogol Bordello Istanbul'da" (Gogol Bordello in Istanbul). Both albums are available on www.bagimsizmuzik.com
