Black Mercedes

Skorpio – Black Mercedes

Mr. Eddy says his 450 SEL 6.9 has 1400 hp. I wouldn’t dare to doubt that. I wish Mr. Lynch had included this Skorpio track in Lost Highway.

Rhodas

El Sueño De Hyparco – Rhodas

Floating at 90 bpm. Feels more like being a bit too drunk to move away from the sofa than imagine perfect beaches in Ródos.

Macchinismo E Nostalgia

Recht Herzlich – Macchinismo E Nostalgia

Impossible catchy 80’s wave for these lonely, cold, dark autumn evenings. Plays well with Fumio: Heart Beat.

Ecoute Le Son Du Soleil (Instrumental)

Yannick Chevalier ‎– Ecoute Le Son Du Soleil (Instrumental)

In 1984 we didn’t have recordings from actual sounds of the sun, but what a lovely idea to imagine it sounding like an addicting disco instrumental.

Nuori Inka

Jarmo Juhani – Nuori inka

Cultural appropriation, Finland, 1981. Shameless stealing and intentional misinterpretation or intertextual homage? Nuori Inka means young Inka in Finnish. Inka is a name for 6215 females and less than 5 males according to the Population Register Center. In this case Nuori Inka is not a mere mortal human being, but a homeless ghost of a young Inca-being referring to the destruction of the Inca culture. Kudos to dj Mikko Mattlar for pointing out this one and dj Piitu for handing me a copy. The record wasn’t a huge success in 1981, but it’s been a pleasure to see the reactions on the dancefloors of 2017!

Are They Really Gonna… ?

Matterhorn Project – Are They Really Gonna… ?

As a kid I had a questionable privilege to watch numerous nuclear war documentaries at the prime time. A Generation experience with dramatic effects on how to view the world. I played a lot of peace and love themed records last weekend and had this one cued to slow things down, but the porter had to obey the rules and end the party in time. What a pity. I felt we could have easily danced for hours more.

Safari

Isabel Patton – Safari

Isabel Patton, la mujer de la tierra caliente! Born Isabel Paton, this Spanish woman was a flaming Diva of the highest order to rival Lyda Zamora, Charo and even Bibi Andersen herself. Fame for the torrid bombshell arrived in 1972 with the ballad Sin Tener Nada Que Ocultar and several hits followed. Soy Una Dama (1977) was a superior version of Sorry I’m A Lady but the real blast arrived in 1983 with this tour de force, an exceptional achievement of epic propotions melting down all surfaces.

New Wave Sequence

Sauveur Mallia – New Wave Sequence

Checking my  1980s Tele Music library for the forthcoming gigs. Matching test bed for this 1983 track would be a Citroën BX 19 DIGIT at 180 km/h. Unfortunately all these vinyls mean I’ve to settle for a lesser Citroën, but yes, it seems to work at high speeds so into the bag it goes.

Guest mix: Geoffrey LaRue

DETROIT, the home of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, the birthplace of Motown and techno. Unexpectedly there’s dark and dangerous disco throbbing there too, as can be heard in this  mix from Detroit dj Geoffrey LaRue. Now, strip to your underwear and take a trip to (Ho)Motor City.

Sodom

Reinhard Lakomy – Sodom

The Sodomites were destroyed for wickedness which had prompted the Lord to send Angels to the city to investigate, and because the people of Sodom had tried to rape the investigating Angels many times, and because the men of Sodom had tried to engage in homosexual intercourse with the Angels 471 times, and because of inhospitable treatment of visitors sent from the Lord.

Everybody Needs It

Orient Express – Everebody Needs It

“I long for those rare moments when I shiver with the rush of altered consciousness. In an ephemeral blast of time’s breath, it’s like the universe reveals itself and there is a mutual recognition of all things. But as quick as it manifests it slams shut it’s window, only leaving the essence like some intoxicating perfume that remains after someone has left the room.” – Stendhal.
