Biography

3 (-or Uc, pronounced “utsch”-) Hurel made two LP’s. The first LP (1972) might ask a bit more effort after first hearing for Western ears / standards, because it sounds more Turkish. Their second record has a more remarkable incredible guitar playing and is surely nice to trace. Give it enough time. Their single collection has been nicely reissued with a booklet by Ada Müzik (-several of the B & W pictures are taken from it-).

“One of the most interesting groups of Turkish progressive music, a legendary sound. 3 brothers, Onur, Haldun, Feridun Hurel: 3 Hur-El. Their first band was at 1966 “Istanbul 4”… Then 1970 3 Hur-El with their special sound. First LP 1972.
As an important differance, the three Hurel brothers didn’t play cover songs or turkish music compositions. Feridun did the original composes and lyrics, and sang, also played a double-necked instrument : one neck for guitar, the other for turkish saz. Was a great combination. With special drums, percussions and combination of west-east instruments, they created a new synthesis. That was a great progressive sound of 70’s, with great rhythms.
Their second LP “Hurel Arsivi” , 1976, is their most important work (selections from singles)
of the group, amazing rhytms, incredible guitar playing, some psych sounds and vocals…
A must listen.” Guner

    Çok küçükken müzikle aramı iyi yapan gruptu 3 Hürel, yeri hep bambaşka olacaktır benim için, bir yüzümü gülümseten olay ise şu anki dinlediğim müzik olan "progressive rock" un 3 hürel etiketleri arasında oluşuydu =) Iyi dinlemişim bu güzel grubu=)
