Haruomi Hosono

Haruomi Hosono – Funiculi Funiculà

An obvious role model for August Darnell’s Kid Creole, Harumi Hosono realesed a series of mock-exotica albums during the seventies, beginning with Tropical Dandy in 1975. He then joined the Yellow Magic Orchestra and in 1982 put out a solo record containing this delightfully demented version of the old opera tune.

Sentinel

the sentinel

Nights Of Babylon – Sentinel

With the majority of horror films coming out from the USA being lame PG-13 borefests instead of gorefests, and the commercial realese of Eli Roth’s fabulously grotesque cannibal epic The Green Inferno still months away, it’s time to go back to the seventies, once again. Do yourself a huge favour and order yourself a copy of Michael Winner’s The Sentinel, a big budget 1977 extravaganza with an all-star cast, made to cash in on the success of The Omen. Equally gory as it’s predecessor but far more tasteless, it’s a must for anyone sane who enjoys watching excessive, prolonged sequences involving cannibal lesbians masturbating each other, as well as actual, real life deformed people paraded across then screen as demons from hell. Fans of glossy haute couture fashion shoots or scenes of eyeballs being punctured Fulci style will not be left disappointed, either.

The British Michael Winner (R.I.P) was the director of the original Death Wish and it’s sequel, plus one of the all time great female vigilante classics, The Dirty Weekend (in which a rapist shoves his hand inside the pants of a 80yrs old bag lady and shouts Awww, I swear there’s a wart in here!).

The music is off a moody early eighties album filled with long electronic rhythm tracks.

Goude – Machine

A 1980 borderline entry from Ramses label. Of course, a borderline is not where something stops, but where something begins.

Chab Sahraoui Et Fadela – N’Sel Fik

Classic of the month. Chaba Fadela is the premier Algerian actress and all around Diva. She’s married to Cheb Sahraoui with whom she recorded N’Sel Fik (You Are Mine) in 1983. The track became an international cult hit and sparked a worldwide interest in raï music.

Disco Guitars

LeBaron Disco-Go – Disco Guitars

Anita – Lady Bump

Track one is the elusive LeBaron track missing from the database until now, made in Finland in 1980.

Track two confirms that Anita made a disco record. Anita who? Anita the girl who was my one-time babysitter when I was a small child, that’s who. She lived almost next door to us and came over when my parents went off to night clubs or generally out wherever. The vivacious and full-bodied girl soon decided to become a singer and proceeded to record a massive local hit called Sormet Pois! (No Fingering!). Naturally, to promote the sleazy song she posed topless in the then best selling tabloid magazine, holding her boobs in her hands for all to see. An instant success, she was gradually transformed into a national institution and remains a popular schlager act today.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Neil Norman – Raiders Of The Lost Ark

Discofication of the film theme, worthy of attracting attention especially because of the most legendary of all exotica maestros Les Baxter himself was involved in the arrangement. Here is where you’ll get to Marvel at the magnficence of his productions: http://www.lesbaxter.com/

Into The Ozone

D.C LaRue – Into The Ozone

Lou Christie, a guest vocalist on this excellent D.C LaRue track from his 1981 Star Baby album, sings he does not want to go into the ozone. The last time I was there Sandra Bullock was zigzagging around using a fire extinguisher in sharp clear resolution and delivering a deliriously mawkish monoloque to a dead child. Obviously the ozone is no place to go.

Francois Villon

Francois Villon

Max Hansen – Einmal Möcht Ich Keine Sorgen Haben

Francois Villon (1431-1461) was an all around hellraiser, bon vivant and one of the most admired French poets. His often suggestive rhymes got the club treatment during the late 1980s, first by Culture Beat & Jo Van Nelson with Der Erdbeermund and immediately after by Lyric Expedition & Romy Haag with Susse Kirschen. Both are here and belong to the classic Berlin cabaret tradition, originally pioneered by acts like Marlene Dietrich and Max Hansen after WW1.

There is a time and a place for everything however tacky and kitschy, so here’s some horribly overblown interpretations of Broadway show tunes from 1982.

Dilemma

md-41186861718681618

Moderne – Dilemma (1981)

Not everything ending with “wave” as a musical genre has to be desperate and gloomy. It’s just a tad melancholic and chilly here, as expected.
