Today's Israeli band is Kavaret, alternately known as Poogy. I got turned on to Kavaret by Ari, who commented on my recent Crembo post. According to Ari,
"My first memory of "crembo" mentions in Israeli pop would be from "Ani zokher ota me-ha-makolet" (I remember her from the grocery store) from the first Poogy album. Talk about fun nostalgia. I need a crembo now."
I had never heard of Poogy, so I decided to check them out. According to their Wikipedia page, Kavaret played in the 1970's and was immensely popular in Israel and toured around the world. After they broke up, their vocalist Gidi Gov went on to be pop star in his own right.
