Gluteus Maximus – Disco Frisco

Seven Swedish high school guys from a town called Huddige strike up a disco band in 1977 and decide to name themselves after buttock muscles. Their only, privately pressed record on Huddige Hörs label is a hymn to the clubs of San Francisco. That’s the spirit, boys!

Gamma Rays

Birth-Control-Pills

Birth Control – No Shade Is Real

Birth Control – Gamma Rays

As we well know quite a few early seventies Krautrockers got The Vibe already. First track is not completely danceable but contains major passages and a mysterioso eastern feel. Ready for an edit perhaps? The second is more seriously four-on-the-floor.

Flight To Versailles

angelique

Grand Tour – Flight To Versailles

While we wait with breathless anticipation for the new chapter in the celebrated series of Angelique films, here’s a Canadian track dedicated to the immortal books and films without which nobody would know what or where Versailles is (?). Also, a classic of the month.

For the uninitiated, here’s a list of the books by Anne and Serge Colon. The first volume appeared in 1956 in France introducing Angelique, an extraordinarily beautiful adventureress during the time of Louis the Fourteenth, a time of political intrique, fearless pirates and roques, lusty Turkish Sultans, black magicans and strapping beggar kings, all who had an eye for the heroine of the series.

Angélique, the Marquise of the Angels
Angélique: The Road to Versailles
Angélique and the King
Angélique and the Sultan
Angélique in Revolt
Angélique in Love
The Countess Angélique
The Temptation of Angélique
Angélique and the Demon
Angélique and the Ghosts
Angélique à Quebec
Angélique: Route de L’Espoir
Victoire d’Angélique

During the sixties, five scintillating Angelique films starring Michele Mercier were presented to enraptured audiences.

1964 : Angélique, Marquise des Anges
1964 : Merveilleuse Angélique
1965 : Angélique et le roy
1967 : Indomptable Angélique
1968 : Angélique et le sultan

And now, we’ll soon have another!

Peter Henn – Punchy Plum

This enigmatically named one has been popping up in a few mixes lately but being one of the supreme masterpieces of the cowboy disco subgenre, the 1974 German track definitely needs to be highlighted in a post of it’s own.

Disco Eclético Mix

Disco Eclético mix

Some like to dip their toes into perfectly clean piscines only, fearful of contaminated water and catching venereal diseases from other swimmers. Or floating turds. Same goes for night clubs, many shun away from lowlife. This here mix is not for well behaving people but it’s got a lot of variety, if not good taste. I originally intended to have it as my entry for the birthday selection but some of the tunes have been posted already by other members and a few tracks arrived too late for the deadline. Thanks: Thomas, Anssi & Carlo.

Time for a King Kong track? Here’s one b-side groove from an unsuspected UK 7″. And for those into Hemi Belvedere’s: One off four door sedan was ordered to Finland in 1967 – yes, with a Hemi! It’s rumored to be still alive and well.

Sapabos – Chattanooga

Sapabos – Ox Dancer

Most prefer the a-side of Ox Dancer but in truth, like so often, the action is hotter on the b-side.
