Album Notes
Also available on:

Apple iTunes


Socially aware Persian lyrics set to Blues/Rock music.

Kiosk is a reunion of old friends made possible by the internet and digital recording. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered in various basements and home-studios around the world.

The lyrics and music were all written by Arash the "Adameh Mamooli" , and are based on his personal experiences and sociopolitical observations.

Translated excerpt from Track 3 - "adameh mamooli (ordinary man)":

Don't want to be in love, if it ends in separation
Don't want to be rich, if it costs my liberation
Don't want to waste my life becoming famous
Just want to be myself, an ordinary man
(Let's see if you leave me alone)

Translated excerpt from Track 9 - "jaddeh khoshbakhti(road to happiness)":

The road to happiness is under repair
Turn around and drive back, it's called fate
The relationship bridge is under construction
Provisioning the budget, project's in a pothole


"If you like your music fine and dandy, and happen to like your head where it is, namely buried in the sand, this album is not for you. Simply move along, and keep on 6/8-ing your decadent ass off. But if you miss having ample doses of rough harsh truth in your music, and more importantly, can handle it, this is one of the strongest efforts put forward by anyone so far. Maybe too strong for you."
- Bruce Bahmani,

Adameh Mamooli
Very original, fantastic song writing and a breath of fresh air. Bob Dylan would sound like this if he were Iranian


Beautiful songs funny witty and controversial.
Beautiful songs funny witty and controversial. I can not recal a song I did not like. Great album, knowing Farsi did help for the 1st time

Bravo, it's dire straights all over again
Hay everyone,
do know dire straits? If you do then you know the rest of the story. If not, move on. It's not your gig, move on now. I tip my hat to these kids and open my wallet as well. Shame on thos of you who enjoy this music and won't support it. As some other fellow said it, i am proud to speak your language kids.

Brilliant, awesome and so down to earth blues... LOVE IT!!
Heard a peice on some tv piece, and had to stick to the end to see the credits, and finally found this album. RIGHT ON!! So refreshing... and so wonderful to be able to share across the globe like this. ROCK ON BOYS!! and if you head out to LA anytime, I'll be there at the show :-)


Breath of Fresh Air
This is an eye opener for us all. It is about things that we all know but hardly talk about. It is a new view of the reality of our lives. It is serious but witty at the same time!!! It is a breath of fresh air. Highly recommended.


I\'m still speechless! Yeah, that good!


excellent work on the way to open new xultural horizon
It was just surprising to hear such a fantastic melody from him.We are on the way to cultural revolution and freedom.We have talents everywhere waiting to arrive in homeland and take it to the top of highest mountains in the world.
Long live Iran and it's rich culture
