New FOTH Comps in the making

Thanks to your input, the following volumes are getting in the early stages:

Working titles:
FOTH 26: Kurry Sembal Ketjap: South East Asian Beat & Psych from Indonesia, Thailand & Vietnam… We'll see about Laos.

FOTH 27: Far East Fuzz: India and Pakinstan weirdness from the 60's. Not sure I'll find anything from Bangladesh though.

FOTH 28: Middle East Mayhem. Turkish, Lebanese, Syrian (not quite the right time), Israeli. I won't drop any Greek stuff in there for fear of getting my throat slit… Actually mingling the israeli stuff in there is also a bit touchy.
I've got quite a few sources for material here, but if any Egyptian, Libyan, Syrian or anybody from the same region could drop me a mail (in a comment please, I won't publish it) pointing me to stuff… I'd be more than grateful.

This one might get done the first, it seems to fall at the right time.

@Yusuf:As a Greek person i can tell you that if you call me Middle-Eastern it's like calling me a Turk... 400 years of slavery man...... We never forget...
Peace from Greece (not middle-east)
