Top 9 for July 2010

I post this ticket on behalf of Jussi, it’s actually his selection for this month.

top072010-981684478

Very hard to choose, been a month with incredible music but here goes:

  1. Micky & Joyce – Hold Up – If  Russ Meyer’s girl gang classic “Faster Pussycat Kill Kill” had been postponed until 1978 this would have been the theme song. Rough, intense disco perfection.
  2. The Electric Kids – Schizoid ”Disco” Kid –  Even rougher, even more perfect – or is it? Would Micky&Joyce kick the Kid’s ass? This month’s tracks are way too deadly.
  3. Nico Fidenco – Make Love On The Wing
  4. Roy Pisanelli – Playback
  5. Shitan –  Disco Shitan
  6. La Doppia Faccia – Alibi
  7. Bons baisers d’Antibes – Année 1978
  8. Doctor Electro – Electro Melody
  9. Neil Richardson – Riviera Affair – well, it is the holiday season.

Experimental discothéque designed by Achille and Giacomo Castiglioni in 1967 for Napoli, Italy: “We took pictures of this flying saucer before it took off again. A hemispheric dome swells out under air pressure, the dark interior space lights up, and along the walls an extraordinary show of lights and colours unrolls, a rhythmic abstract play of 2763 light-space units. The visitor finds himself inside a “Brain of Action”, moving around, listening..” Domus magazine, Ottobre 1967.
