Bandcamp of the Day: Ottoman Turks
By Mick R., June 9, 2021
“Texas, Red Dirt scene punk-country band the Ottoman Turks initially began as the solo project of vocalist Nathan Mongol Wells, recording in his parent’s bathroom, using a sink drawer to support his laptop and the toilet as a desk chair (and presumably also as a toilet). The group is named for Nathan’s time in the Middle East, where he became obsessed with a cross-continental car race known as the Mongol Rally. A race that begins in the Czech Republic and ends in Russia. Many of the routes take contestants through areas that were largely part of the Ottoman Empire, hence the name.”
