Still my favorites are two underground groups with no albums. One is from Istanbul Cemiyette Pişiyorum (it's hard to translate, but roughly it means "I Am Cooked In The Community") and the other from Izmir l.e.s.s. The former always has complicated lyrics so it’s hard to get what they really mean and sounds maybe more like... I don't know... I cannot compare them with any band. Just listen by yourself, and if you have an idea let me know :o).
And the latter is easier to listen (definitely, I'm getting older) and has NOFX like lyrics – simple, clear and says a lot indeed without pushing the words to seem like wise guys who have figured out life by the hard way.

Now, there is a new underground band doing garage-punk/trash in Istanbul, The Raws. They totally sound like Dead Kennedys :o) These three guys with their masks also have a funny theme. Their last album Let's Have a Bondage Blues was released from Squoodge Records (an Austrian company) in Germany, and they’re generally on tours in Eastern Europe and Germany. I didn't know this before, but after a little search on the internet, I've read so that they had also gigs with Reverend Beat-Man (a famous underground group from Switzerland).
