Song of the day: The Mad Turks – "Tempers Fire"

October 1, 2011

And now back to something Australian…

Here’s Adelaide 80’s power pop band The Mad Turks with a zippy little song:

The Mad Turks – “Tempers Fire” (1989)


The Mad Turks are notable for two things:

  1. They used to be called The Mad Turks From Istanbul; and
  2. Their singer was Charles Jenkins who went on to bigger power-pop things in Australia with Icecream Hands and The Zhivagos, two bands I’ve featured on this ‘ere blog in the past. (Here and here.)
