I Like Plastic

plastic

Marsha Raven – I Like Plastic

Plastic was big already during the sixties but people first started wearing clothes made from black trash bags during 1976 in Great Britain. This happened both in discos and punk places. Girls could simply just cut three holes into a bag, add a belt and the outfit was ready. Guys had to spend more time, especially when they wanted to impress with plastic trousers.

Marsha Raven’s record was made in 1982 when new wave fashions again embraced the handy and cheap material.

Louis

Chris Bergman – Louis

This 1977 track from France has to be about Louis Quatorze, right? In the picture the king as seen in the Ken Russell masterpiece The Devils, out now on dvd/blueray in it’s original British theatrical version. Now, when are we going to get the uncut director’s cut as a legit realese, with the Rape Of Christ sequence intact?

Speed Cross

speed crossThunder – Speed Cross

Speed Cross (Italy, 1980) was a really hot single some years ago. Ladies with vintage a MV-Agusta are always hot. Speed Cross movie seems to be about dirt bikes. Fun for sure, but not my kind of fun.

Lost In Love

lost in love pictureEvelyn Smith – Lost In Love

Evelyn Smith (Canada, 1982) singing about the most powerful, most dangerous and most addicting drug you can ever taste. Not my usual sound, but that classic bassline can still do wonders on the floor.

La Camarque

nice2

At La Camarque

The mythical La Camarque disco in the Cour Saleya flower market in Nice opened in 1977. For well over ten years the rhythms, colourful clientele and wild dancing on raised podiums created a fantasy that fulfilled every image and expectation of La Grand Vie on the Riviera. This is where I heard the astonishing Marcia Baila by Les Rita Mitsouko for the first time during the summer of 1985.

Eros Never Stops Dreaming

sleeping psycheDrahcir Ztiworoh – Eros Never Stops Dreaming

In the picture: Psyche at sleep… The myth of Psyche and Eros is way too complicated to be explained in here. To find it out check your library, go to therapy or get a life. The track obviously is not disco, but sure is a great opener to your next psychedelic disco set (France, 1981).

Who is to blame?

Valery Leontiev “Kto Vinovat?”
Sadly the song was never released on vinyl or CD, and exists only as a TV spot (1982).
