Robody – Dr. Youwzy (1984)
Thanks to Def Momentum.
|From the same authors as the amazing Jerusalem.|
This one delivers all its magic once slowed down from 45 to 33 RPM. Check out when the main chorus loop comes in.
White Door – In Heaven (1983)
I can only advise you to check out their one and only album, Windows, it is really worth it.
There is an alternative version of this Québecois tune and this time sung in English (the main chorus that goes like “Si tu sais compter ne compte pas sur moi” is now replaced by “If you can count don’t count on me boy”). The radio database contains both versions, the English one is courtesy of Blackberrie.
Phreek – Weekend (1976)
That’s a fact: he was a real show man. R.I.P. (biography)
It must be one of the best soulful disco songs ever!
The anthem! (more…)
(the live performance video is still available HERE
It contains samples (more…)
“Space Is The Place” is the second LP, released in 1985. Not the most known but it is wicked too. Let’s jam on it!
Tracks like Galactica (and the short guitar riff ala Robot Rock) and In The Black Hole (with its Kano-like sound) put an instant smile on my face…
I’m sure you will appreciate the wicked twists and turns on Galaxy: an album from the Rockets, and released in 1980.
Rockets – Galactica
Rockets – Mecanic Bionic
Rockets – Synthetic Man
Rockets – One More Mission
Rockets – Universal Band
Rockets – Prophecy
Rockets – In The Black Hole
Rockets – In The Galaxy
Rockets – Medley
I know Kundalini is not that keen on this kind of italo stuff but I also know that he needs to put some cheese on his pastas 😉
Anyway, I’ve selected it because I dig the melodic patterns (typical of that era) and maybe this thick accent, additionally.
