Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic the Altin Gun show that was scheduled to take place at EartH on May 15th will now take place on Friday November 27th. Due to venue and artist availability the show will now take place at London Scala rather than EartH. All tickets purchased remain valid for this show, refunds are available if you are not able to make the new date and the remaining available tickets are on-sale now. We look forward to welcoming the band to London for the new date.

Rockfeedback and Bad Vibrations Present… Altin Gün.

The Altin Gün band members first encountered this music in various ways: through their upbringing, via friends or after finding life changing compilations in record shops. Their own personal discoveries eventually led them to collectively open doors to crowds everywhere across Europe, from the Into the Great Wide Open festival in Netherlands to Istanbul, from Ghent to Geneva and from Ravenna to Rotterdam; people all across Europe fell in love with Altin Gün’s unusual combination of familiar sounds.

Manço, Bağcan and Koray have all influenced Altin Gün, but their foremost inspiration is Neşet Ertaş, a Turkish folk musician whose musical legacy is invaluable. Comparisons are almost impossible to make but imagine someone with the same impact and status as Bob Dylan or George Gerschwin and you’re getting close. Many of the songs he wrote have become standards in Turkey, national treasures which are cherished up until the present day.

Altin Gün retain the lyrical and thematic structure of Ertaş’s songs, though they often alter their time signatures and add fuzzy bass sounds, sweltering organ sounds and raw saz riffs. Ertaş wrote the majority of the songs on the album even if these are hardly recognisable after all the work Altin Gün have done on them.
