Product Notes

Afshin's musical journey began in fourth grade, when he began to learn saxophone and piano in Minneapolis. The Afrosheens project commenced 7 years ago in Minneapolis, when Beheshti purchased a 4-track tape recorder and began making tapes for friends. In 1998, after moving to Tallahassee, he released a limited edition CD, 'No Photos', and put together a four-piece group to perform his compositions onstage. Up until that time, Beheshti had only played live with jazz groups. During 1999, Afshin played solo shows using pre-recorded keyboard tracks as his backup band. In January 2000 he released The Afrosheens second album 'The Persian Expressway.' He gathered a new ensemble together, featuring numerous talents from local Tallahassee bands, to perform material from 'The Persian Expressway' live. On 7/24/01 he released his third album 'Welcome To My Wonderful Show.' Recently he has stripped the live shows to a three piece. With this line up The Afrosheens will be playing the 2001 CMJ Music Marathon. Here are some reviews from the second and third albums: 'Strange and Beautiful' -Team Clermont 'Beheshti's influences are jumbled together in colorful profusion... This CD is lo-fi in the best way --unadorned by the desire to conform to any known formula.' -Tallahassee Democrat '... can either be taken for off centered narcissism, or high-minded conceptualism, until you realize Beheshti has quite a talent for arrangement. On repeated listening, what seems to be feckless meandering takes on a definite pattern. I'm reminded of bands like Guided by Voices and Thinking Fellers Union #424. Rhythm machine, mandolin, super-distorted guitars, real drums, bass and acoustic guitars morph and swirl with different styles. The outcome is both amusing and confounding. Syd Barret fans should find this fun.' -Pulse of the Twin Cities '...the product is an album with some really cool songs' -Shredding Paper.
