Finders Keepers chuck us another trawl through the archives this week and this one is fruit flavoured. Pomegranates is a comp of Persian pop, funk, folk and psych from the 60's and 70's. The 60's and 70's weren't just a cultural revolution in the west you know. They even had one in the middle east.... Crazy I know! Arabs eh? you gotta love 'em. And god bless 'em for making all this funtastic music lovingly chosen by Finders Keepers and placed onto one CD or a double LP for your Iranian retro enjoyment. As far as I'm concerned there's no household names (to me) on here but there are some stunning tunes. The opener 'Helelyos' by Zia is one of the best things I've heard in a while. A total psych funk classic and I can't get enough of that 60's psyche vibe when it's infused with a middle eastern flavour. I've just heard they eat loads of Pomegranates in Iran. It all makes sense now.... Fantastische!
