Legendary Boston band Turkish Delight is playing their reunion show tonight at the Middle East! Tapes, IHN pins and other merch will be available.
We got a couple of items of interest to share before the show will commence! Up first is a video review by Celebutant where he goes through every track on Howcha Magowcha:
There’s also a mix that Turkish Delight compiled for us (a wonderful companion to our own Tommy Bell and His Minions series). Expect classic post-punk, no wave and a slew of selections from today’s music landscape!
