Excellent French vampire disco record out only in Japan.
A complicated title but basically, the song is about hard working Finnish girl who decides she’ll get herself a man.
Great to hear that you’re feeling love sir. Just a simple reminder: Respect the limits. No obnoxious staring or unwanted touching. Avoiding classics is a must in order to survive, but sometimes an anthemic 12″ might be excused. Recorded here at -8. Still too fast?
In Aztec culture music was performed by professional musicians and singers, who resided in the palace of the ruler, a place called the “House of the Cloud Serpent” (Mixcoacalli). While the court musicians performed often hundreds of people took part in formation dances, the line hustles of their day.
The temple and the court musicians used instruments made from wood and jaguar skins for the drums, gold and copper for bells, or marine shells for rattles and trumpets. Unfortunately we don’t have much information of what the melodies actually sounded like. Here however we have a spectacular interpretation from Germany by The Original Bambis. Behold: the exotic and majestic music of the Aztec people!
A smorgasbord with salted fish, boiled potatoes and vegetables is perhaps the best known of all of Sweden’s culinary traditions. For some people the pickings may leave a thing or two to be desired but we like it all here at Overfitting Disco.
John Boorman, the director of Point Blank, Zardoz and Deliverance, goes soft with a heavily didactic film about a father seeking his son in the Amazon jungle. Instead of encounters with gutmunching cannibals the film is concerned with the earth’s ecological balance, preserving the life of the rain forest and yes, the process of growing up to be a man.
The music works, though.
Horrifying/surprisingly groovy Japanese disco versions of Beatles songs, made in 1976 when this kind of stuff became a craze after Ritchie Family’s Brazil and Baby Face by Wing and a Prayer Fife & Drum Corps hit big everywhere.
Heroic themes for space travel and alien insemination, including many tracks heard during my set at Camp Cosmic last Saturday night.
Austrian space disco from an (to me anyway) unknown artist. This could very well look like a small private pressing, but the label (Rst records) have released too many records for it to qualify as private. A big surprise however is that it’s from ’86. I would have guessed 77/78 if i didn’t knew better. Anyway it’s a really cool track
