Now-Again Records presents exact reproductions of two of the four 7" singles that the Iranian psychedelic rock musician Kourosh Yaghmaei released before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Kourosh Yaghmaei and his brothers Kamran and Kambiz were amongst the few inspired Iranian musicians determined to change Tehran's musical landscape in the late 60's and early 70's. The trio, armed with rented, second-hand instruments and records by The Ventures, The Kinks, and The Doors, merged Western garage rock, psychedelia and Iranian folkloric music to create a sound unlike anything that came before them.
"Gole Yakh" - was Kourosh's biggest hit, a weeping ballad backed by insistent drums and embellished by his plaintive guitar. "Del Dareh Pir Misheh," the b-side, is Iranian garage rock taken to its greatest heights.
