Scientologist Goes Disco

Richard Yared – I Like You

This track is off the Success album by Richard Yared, recorded as a hommage to L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.

How to start to gradually free your immortal alien soul – the Thetan – from the empty shell that is your body on earth? The first steps are a series of tests with an E-Meter, an invaluable aid to measuring your mental state. These are followed by the offical Purification Rundown detoxification processes at one of the countless Churches and Missions around the world. After a contribution of approximately 250 000 American dollars you can then aim at the highest Thetan levels, offered at Scientology’s Advanced Organizations at Los Angeles, Sydney, East Grinstead and Copenhagen, for actual immortality and dancing in outer space with Tom Cruise, Isaac Hayes, John Travolta, Juliette Lewis and the fabulous Priscilla Presley! Having possibly been subjected to beatings, forced abortions and rape are by that time all forgotten, of course.

Shadows in a Disco

Superguitar – Shadows in a Disco

Impossible but apparently true – this adrenaline rocket of pure disco sound that explodes on contact has not been given a proper post here before. A snippet from the medley sequing together hits by the British band The Shadows got included ages ago in a mix, though.

The 7″ from 1977 is easy to get but the full long version combining the two sides only seems to exist inside a “Disco Sound” 3 album box out in in France.

Melancholie éternelle

Melancholie éternelle

“Paris en hiver, une neige mouillée
Une fille entre dans un café
Moi, je bois mon verre, elle s’installe à côté
Je ne sais pas comment l’aborder.”

Feeling Dizzy

It seems centuries have passed since my last post in this blog. But the disco bug has never left me … and my wallet. Among the records i found this winter, there is one that i think deserves to be posted here. It is a French 7″ of 1980, produced by Jean Lahcene, under the name of Roll-Mops. It contains the songs Cosmic Trip on A-side, and Feeling Dizzy on B-side. But, it’s the second that, i think, deserves more attention. The voice is of Serge Lamy, who in 1982 would have recorded the 7″ containing the song Ça Tourne, a spicy pop funk with latin veins. In short, enjoy!

Sofia’s Se A Cabo

Sofia Orchestra – Se A Cabo

A hot Bulgarian version of the Santana dancefloor jazz classic, also done extremely well by James Last.

Jazz moves combine African and Celtic dance influences. The basic steps have a showbizzy stylized feel to them.

A JAZZ SQUARE can be done alone or in a group.

1.Step forward on the right or left foot
2.Cross the other foot over the first foot
3.Step back with the first foot
4.Bring the feet side by side.

You need to be able to move the chest and hips if you’re thinking of making an impression. Here’s a good warm-up.

1.Loosen your knees
2.Extend your arms out to the sides
3.Holding your chest and your legs as still as possible, swing your hips from side to side

Another thing to master is the CHASSÉ step.

1.Step one foot forward or to the side
2.Bring up the second foot behind the first foot
3.As you bring up the second foot to join the first one, immediately step off the foot to create a skipping movement across the floor.

As for the rest just improvise with wide arm movements, much snapping of fingers and lotsa attitude.

Another Sandstorm

There has been a few sandstorms on the blog in the past, but this is a pretty direct cover version of the La Bionda song, which i have always been a bit of a sucker for. Vocals here are certainly weaker, but overall an enjoyable little piece of orientalism.

Mami And Daddy

You know how it goes…all parents adore their daughters and will do anything for them. Until the female offspring reaches a certain age. Then they start scouring the hardware stores for locks to put on their rooms and surveillance equipment to prevent those tall, dark and handsome strangers from moving too close. But no matter what mami and daddy do, those children always seem to find a way into the night. *Sigh*

Three more cuts from the 5T album, my personal fave of the month. Tangoul Dragustei is an improved version of Jinny and the Flamboyants “Cumparsita Dance” and check out the other two covers as well – familiar tunes spiked with strong acid.
