Damn, Sublime Frequencies surely put out some staggering shit. Vampyre Verdi had the pleasure of seeing Omar Souleyman and Group Doueh in Amsterdam, June 2009 and it was a truly memorable occasion. Alan Bishop (Sublime Frequencies, Sun City Girls, Alvarius B, Uncle Jim) was manning the merchandise stall, I should have said hello but the local fungus had made coherent speech all but impossible.

The only problem I have with Sublime Frequencies is that they put out too much good stuff so frequently that it’s almost impossible to keep up, I’ve just noticed that there’s a new Doueh album out… Sheeeeeeeeeeeeet!!

Anyway I recommend that you head on over to the Sublime Frequencies website and buy loads and loads of items, you know it’s the right thing to do. I’d start with ‘Folk And Pop Sounds Of Sumatra Vol. 1’ if I were you (still one of my favourites)

    Just what I like Mr VV, just what I like.

  2. Suspected as much Mr T, there’s some fine stuff here. Hayvanlar Alemi are a contemporary Turkish band, like a Sun City Girls and Dick Dale combination.
