Ramesh - s/t lp (Pharaway Sounds)


"In 1970s Tehran, the classically-trained Ramesh played the serious,
quiet marquess against Googoosh’s langorous pop princess. Both singers
made the papers every time they changed their haircuts & appeared on
tv frequently. However, while Googoosh now runs a cosmetics company in
Los Angeles, they say Ramesh was killed in the political turmoil of the
late 70s because she was a lesbian. Nobody knows for sure. What we do
know is that she was a funky queen whose rich voice sits like a fat mink
coat, twirling it’s melancholy way around long-necked lutes, backed by
flurries of frame & goblet drums. And the sleazy, Western brass,
strings & synths are here too, slathered across rare singles for
your shameless dancing pleasure. Welcome to the unpredictable world of
pre-revolutionary Iranian pop music." - Light In The Attic
