The Queen Of Love

 

barbarella

Barbarella – The Queen Of Love

B-side of “Move In Do It”, Italy, Fremus Records, year not listed.

Barbarella (real name Virna Bonino) was an Italian porn star born in Torino. In Rome, she got recruited by producer Riccardo Schicchi into his notorious Diva Futura stable, the home of local legends Moana Pozzi and Ilona “Cicciolina” Staller. During the mid 80’s signorina Barbarella’s work was mainly dumped direct to video. Perhaps due to extensive facelifts, the starlet can occasionally still be seen guest appearing in the variety shows of Italian television.

Sodoma Piacere Proibiti

Le Perversioni Degli Angeli

Caldi Istinti Di Una Ninfomane Di Lusso

Delhi Disco

9NFstlt

Peter Moss, the Sharon producer, made this 1981 tune which actually sounds more Turkish than Indian. It took a few listens for it to sink in, but then it also stayed there.

Hitparade

hqdefault

Strange and sluggish glam tune, with a basic but nice synth and drummachine touch. Probably a floor clearer, but then again, once in a while you need a record that works like that. It definitely doesn’t make you think hitparade.

And yes, it is running on the proper speed.

Pyar Karnevale

Asha Bhosle – Pyar Karnevale

“Its rising is not bright
nor its setting dark

Unceasing, continuous
Branching out in roots innumerable
Forever sending forth the serpent coil
of living things
Mysterious as the formless existence
to which it returns

Twisting back
Beyond mind

We say only that it is form from the formless
Life from spiral void”

—Prehistoric Prayers by Timothy Leary

Locomotive Breath

cat gang challengerCat Gang – Locomotive Breath

Who cares about a luggage rack when you have a fire breathing Hemi under hood. The same applies to this italo version of a Jethro Tull classic. You shouldn’t love it even though many details make sense, but it’s all about the moment the bass kicks in through a massive sound system. You’ll forget those painfully pretensions poses and move to the beat. Please check the other even more equally impressive version Jussi posted about 3 billion years ago.

Aimer D’Amour (Instrumental)

aimerMalibu Limousine – Aimer D’amour (Instrumental)

My beloved 12″ copy sounds overtly happy at original speed, but happiness is so last season that you better slow it down a lot. Vocal side was already featured in here, but the “instrumental” on the flip is the one to choose if you have to play mood music for some strange reason.

Orchestra Ezio Landini ‎– Make Up Jour Self

Yes, that’s how it’s spelled on the cover of this little italian piece of sunshine. They did try to fix the mistake though on the label and almost got it right with “Make up your self”. Released on the small Edizione Discografica Borgatti label

Autumn is coming with all those dark hopeless evenings. This profoundly melancholic Canadian desert disco fits the autumn mood quite perfectly.

Mondgesicht

mondgesichtOrchester Ambros Seelos – Mondgesicht

Is there anything more beautiful than late August with these dark, warm and damp nights filled with tempting tobacco smoke. The great strange dream called summer is slowly fading away. As the overtly quoted On The Road phrase goes: “We were all delighted, we all realized we were leaving confusion and nonsense behind and performing our one and noble function of the time, move“.

Lola Martinez – Persigueme

Vamos a la discoteca con senorita Martinez, con los sintetizadors, con un ritmo mundial! A slightly slower version of the Amanda Lear classic has all the right noises. Big thanks to Arnie’s Love for the copy.
