Pinky Fane

pinky

Found this one in Munich last year. To my surprise it hadn’t been snatched by any of the locals, despite it looking fairly obscure and being labelled a “special disco hit”. Well, it is most certainly NOT what most people would call disco. It was probably meant as some kind of joke, either made up by the band or by some distributor with a good sense of humor. But this very overfitting 7″ still has many other qualities – take a listen.

Ecstasy – Love’s Music

Maisa didn’t like what she saw when she looked in the mirror. So, she tested out every diet and exercise regimen on the planet and tried to figure out which worked best. She sweated and learned to pole dance, all to no avail. It was only when se discovered Overfitting Disco that she started getting back into shape, her cholesterol level lowered and her energy level doubled. Now she feels better than ever before.

Funky Fiddle

th (1)

To twiddle the fiddle is much like a riddle,
you work from the middle until it gets brittle,
just stop when the spittle becomes like a skittle,
and little by little it works as a diddle

Kismet

images0XKHL0LY

Amon Duul 2 – Kismet

And you think you’re a horny bastard having had three shags in Benidorm last summer? Listen to what the writer of this Arabian tale has to say:

“I departed from Agadès, and lived with unsuspected difficulties on the tracks of Aïr and those of Hoggar. My main task was to hold the stay on the track, the real track, not being tempted by the treacherous ruts that escape the track, that evanescent track which scattered like a frivolous wife, to the left, to the right, avoiding the dunes of sand to the right, by-passing dried river beds to the left, the fields of sharpened stones, the cart tracks dug by the ceaseless passages of lorries, go out of the track to the left to avoid pits to the right, which track to go on, and at the end of which would be the dead-end, the track erased by the breath of the Simoon, the liquid sands, the hard track, Tamanrasset, the comfort of the oasis, Paradise. Then I saw the fires and, like a thief, I entered the Oasis of El-Abiad.

Under the palms as the fires burned I rested for a while and then ate some wild fruits that grew there. As I went around looking for some inhabitants, I saw an old woman sitting by a stream. She had a blank look on her face. She looked weak and haggard. I approached her and asked if I could help her. She signed to me and asked to be lifted on my back to help her cross the stream in front of us. I obliged but after a while she tightened her hold around my neck that I nearly choked and fainted. When I regained consciousness, the old woman was still clinging to me. Then she signalled me to get up and walk to some fruit trees. I plucked the fruits for her. Then she ordered me to satisfy her passions with my erect member, even when I slept. I realized my life was in danger so I thought of finishing off the wicked old woman.

I found some grapes when the old woman was sleeping. I took their juice in a large seashell and left it hidden under a small bush. A few days later, I tasted the juice and it had turned into wine. I sipped it and exclaimed, “Ah! It’s the sweetest wine I’ve ever tasted.”

I drank some of the wine. Then I saw that the old woman had vanished and in her place a Djinn stood smiling at me, pointing at an opening in the hill. Go, the Djinn whispered, to the Cave of Dreams. I descended into the Cave of Dreams and was instantly met by a Guard in front of the Room of Dreams and thrown on the floor, and violated mercilessly eight times. I then proceeded into the Room of Dreams and was caught by a another Guard and thrown into a Chamber where I danced with eleven slaves and satisfied my passions until the sun rose and the birds started singing.

I was then reminded by the slaves to come the next night. I was very taken up by the wonderful experiences. I eagerly awaited the next evening’s feast.

After the next night I bound the slaves with ropes and headed back to Agadès and from there to Bagdad on a ship. The ship reached Balsora and I arrived in Baghdad and I sold the slaves and acquired a lot of money all over again. Then I settled for a restful life.”

China

china 1China – China

5.53 a.m. Despite the overwhelming fatigue sleeping is out of question. Sunrise in May is simply too precious to be missed. Perhaps gentle airy cigarettes on the balcony? China 12″ roaring at 108 bpm? Of course not. The people next door would probably mind. Be quiet. Don’t smoke. The downsides of overtly safe urban housing. Would it be too late for a drive to archipelago to find abandoned buildings?

Müzik ve Ben

Claire Evren – Müzik ve Ben

To my surprise Vomatron didn’t post this one. So let me introduce this Turkish/French disco wonder from ’81. To my knowledge Claire was a Turkish singer living in France. The track is produced in France, but only released on the turkish Öncü label (the one that looks like a redbull logo). The lyrics are in french except the chorus which is turkish. What a blend!

Love will come

Ricchi e Poveri – Love will come

I guess Ricchi e Poveri is among the very famous italian pop bands, but my only relation to them has been the Jungle Beat track from their 1980 Album. This one is 4 years earlier. A great mixture of hippie vibes and boogie grooves. This is probably best served at some small outdoor festival in the summertime, but hey; play it in a dark club in the winter and I promise you’ll get me on the floor.

Here’s another proof that good music doesn’t have to cost you anything. These 2 tracks are from 2 different dutch 7inches. Great vibes and synth work all the way through! Sorry for the crackling quality on Asphalt. I guess i need another one. maybe 10!

Sing-along disco for those euphoric nights you feel like comprehending the idea of the tenth dimension or just feel moderately happy (Austria, 1980).
