Locomotive Breath

cat gang challengerCat Gang – Locomotive Breath

That bass kicks like a 528 Hemi with mechanical roller cam and individual throttle bodies. So who cares about a luggage rack option or painfully pretensions poses, when can just move on. Please do remember to check an even more equally impressive version Jussi posted about 3 billion years ago.

Mondgesicht

mondgesichtOrchester Ambros Seelos – Mondgesicht

Is there anything more beautiful than late August with these dark, warm and damp nights filled with tempting tobacco smoke. The great strange dream called summer is slowly fading away. As the overtly quoted On The Road phrase goes: “We were all delighted, we all realized we were leaving confusion and nonsense behind and performing our one and noble function of the time, move“.

Octagon

onyxOnyx – Octagon

Der Alte was a childhood favorite for many drop-out teens like me. Mostly because there was nothing else available on Finnish television. Even thought I watched too many episodes, I can’t remember this cosmic moment from the episode “Kalt wie Diamant” (Germany, 1983).

Emerald Forest

emerald

Junior Homlich – Emerald Forest End Titles / Eagle Break

John Boorman, the director of Point Blank, Zardoz and Deliverance, goes soft with a heavily didactic film about a father seeking his son in the Amazon jungle. Instead of encounters with gutmunching cannibals the film is concerned with the earth’s ecological balance, preserving the life of the rain forest and yes, the process of growing up to be a man.

The music works, though.

Azteca

azteca

Zorro – Azteca

Austrian space disco from an (to me anyway) unknown artist. This could very well look like a small private pressing, but the label (Rst records) have released too many records for it to qualify as private. A big surprise however is that it’s from ’86. I would have guessed 77/78 if i didn’t knew better. Anyway it’s a really cool track

(I Like) Sado-Music

sado

Sandy Samuel – (I like) Sado-Music

I didn’t even know it was a genre. But now that i know, i like it too!
Sandy Samuel kicks off a terrifying groovy track with an insisting chanting of how much she likes to whip the shit out of you. The drumming is also kind of fascinating. Don’t know if the drummer didn’t wanted a click to play along or maybe he just thought tightness was overrated. In that case i agree (on this tune anyway). You can hear the full version on my latest mix

Müzik ve Ben

Claire Evren – Müzik ve Ben

To my surprise Vomatron didn’t post this one. So let me introduce this Turkish/French disco wonder from ’81. To my knowledge Claire was a Turkish singer living in France. The track is produced in France, but only released on the turkish Öncü label (the one that looks like a redbull logo). The lyrics are in french except the chorus which is turkish. What a blend!

Disco General – Adiano To Proskefali

Ah, Greece, the birthplace of western civilization! The epic tragedies, the poetry, the history. The philosphers, the Olympics, the anal sex. Here’s a 1980 Creek tune, the title of which could have something to do with any of those things.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle

Sapan-Jagmohan – Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Bollywood tune from the ’83 album Pratibha . I find the vocals very charming on this one, contrary to my girlfriend who absolutely hate them. In that case an instrumental is also to be found on the album.

Someone Switched Me On

on

Usha – Someone Switched Me On

It’s the mighty Usha Uthup from India of course, here delivering an early eighties tune typically and totally out of sync with the zeitgeist of it’s era. This one comes on like something out of the psychedelic sixties, with added seventies disco vibe. Which, naturally, is a perfect combination.
