Climax

Jambo & Co – Climax

The a-side Eros of this 1977 French seven is a classic but the flip is a hot groove as well, very much a blueprint for the famed Patrick Cowley soundtracks.

D for Disco

Orgue Electronique – Beirut Meeting

The Monuments – Die Mythen

The Residents – Diskomo

Capablanca – Konk Fiesta

 

As I was browsing through my New Wave/Electro/NDW/Synth files, I realised I could find the D for Disco even in those folDers. Amazing.

Beat Party

Typical local flee find here. Elefant consisted of three front girls (hence the title) with Ute Freudenberg being one of them. The song was their first single in ’76 and can be found on the advertised compilation. Do not even try to drop the needle anywhere else!

Pourquoi Pourquoi

Corine – Pourquoi Pourquoi

Corine – Lady Heroin

She loves rich dark chocolate and and she adores rich, sensuous ambre solaire sun cream all over her skin. B-side is a cool version of the Serge Gainsbourg anthem, perfect for opening a dj set with and to thrill the ultra thin models in Paris.

Acuérdate Que Te Quiero

Rumba Tres – Acuérdate Que Te Quiero

Flamenco fever – few of us carry castanets into clubs so when it hits a box of matches does the job as well.

Los Ladrones

Los Ladrones – Parasol

Are you a man or are you just a boy? Boys are the ones telling you about how many chicks they’ve hooked up with. Men, on the other hand, are just doing what they want and don’t care what anyone thinks about it. Men know that fairness is an illusion and the only way they can ever have what they want is to go out and grab it.

Whether you’re a boy or whether you’re a Man isn’t defined by your past. It’s defined by how you live your life, right now, in this present moment. This track shows you how a Real Man sounds.

Danza Ritual Del Fuego

Lubomir Brabec & Karel Vagner – Danza Ritual Del Fuego

This is a tune perfect for evoking visions of savage goings-on in mysterious lands or in the twilight zones of the Disco Otherworld. It’s not only during Samhain when our ancestors, deceased djs, dead collectors, dancers, singers and producers sometimes cross the boundary into our physical realm, it can also take place on dark midwinter nights like these. When it happens, act naturally. Be prepared, do not show your fear and have some extra weed ready for the visitors. Show them to the Technics and gently invite them to play their arcane finds from the beyond. It is good manners to dance to the records no matter how odd they may sound, and to comment on them too. Be careful though – say something wrong and the results could be catastrophic.

كدابه

From Petit Prince album by the mighty Elias Rahbani. Pictured above his mother, known as Fairouz.

She smokes and drinks coffee, just as I do in this moment. But she looks better while at it.

Tallirenki

Jarno Sarjanen – Tallirenki

A Finnish schlager and country singer heard the siren call of disco in 1977, coming up with a track about the hard, hard life of a tallirenki = a stable boy. The record didn’t exactly set dance floors on fire bitd but that was then and this is 2018, and now whenever this cult item starts to play nods and appreciating looks are exhanged between those in-the-know.

Love and Romance

It is unthinkable that the flesh of Christ, holy and innocent, was formed in the womb of Virgin Mary after any kind of sexual intercourse. There was no sinful pleasure in the Immaculate Conception, not even for the briefest moment. The Virgin and Joseph never practiced oral or anal sex either as both are absolutely a sin, immoral.

The birth of Overfitting Disco must have been a different story altogether.

Let’s Do It Together

Entschuldigung, whats happening here? Why hasn’t this monster been posted yet? I best blame myself as it has been a favorite for many years. This private 7″ is a dance floor excursion by the dubious german concept prog band, which only released one album that also plunged quickly- both first and re-licensed- due to legal issues. Unlike the single, the LP is widely available nowadays thanks to several re-issues. Assumption: perhaps their front man is a far relative of mine as he sports the same name.

Poor Senilla

Here is one i actually thought i had posted years ago, but it appears i never got around to it. Well, better late than never. So, its Danish, from late 70’s, on an obscure label, with a particular dusty production sound, and if youre lucky (I wasn’t) it comes with a picture sleeve from erotic illustrator Anni Lippert. The lyrics describe the nighttime adventures of poor, poor Senilla, who couldn’t dance. Hey, but at least she could f…..unk.

For a second there you thought i was gonna say fuck, didn’t you?

L’Opera Vert

Eric Charden – L’Opera Vert Overture

Excellent 1978 space disco by one half of the French pop duo Stone et Charden, off an otherwise uninteresting album with an ecological message.
