In 2005, Pavement hero Stephen Malkmus released his third solo album. Unexpectedly, toward the end of the album he features a cover of Özdemir Erdoğan’s 1972 track ‘Gurbet’. S.M. called it ‘Baby C’mon’, but it was nothing more disguised than that. An indie take on Turkish folk pop – I am almost certain I’ve never said that before. And of course, one forgives him… he’s provided a path to another artist. Just like I have Rod Stewart to thank for introducing me to Jorge Ben; well, sort of.
