Along with Erkin Koray's Underground Quartet, Bunalim was the band that defined Turkish Underground music.They were formed in 1969 with the aim of having underground music reach wider audiences. They couldn't succeed well as their approach was very much wilder and uncompromising than any of their peers at the time. Running all nude down the Istiklal Street, psychedelic light shows, crazy paintings all over the stage wall. "Tas var köpek yok" is their first single from 1969 when they were very raw in sound and the interrupting guy at the end of the song is none other than Cem Karaca who managed them at the time. Later on Bunalim went on to be a psychedelic hard rock band and disbanded by 1972.After disbanding members of the band formed Ter, a (hard rock) band with Erkin Koray. Their records are in "golden grail" status right now.
