Escape

Magnetic System – Escape

Bixio-Frizzi-Tempera ost 45 sounds fast and furious even when pitched down a lot. Godzilla from the a-side has been one of my all time faves ever since it was featured here back in 2009.

Disco-Phase

The spring is here soon which most importantly means that you can go camping in non-breathing polyester fashions and pass out anywhere in the forest without freezing to death.

Ugler i mosen

gnags

Gnags – Ugler i mosen

Funny enough i’ve discovered this record through the Stockholm based dj, Johan Ressle. And even funnier was i couldn’t connect the language when i first heard it. I was sure it was some weird swedish record. To my big surprise it wasn’t. It was from my own small kingdom Denmark. A Danish record sung in Danish. And not by some secret 70s rock band. No, it’s by one of the most famous 70s and 80s danish pop bands, Gnags. And to be honest, a band i really disliked. Another fine example of why you shouldn’t be judgemental when searching for good tracks. Gnags just moved up the latter in my musical perception.
The title Ugler i mosen (Owls in the swamp) is a danish figure of speech of something being fishy.

Snoopy

Rod Hunter – Snoopy

’72 track from the French Moog Mania record on Decca. Snoopy is probably some classic like Telstar and Apache but it’s not known to me anyway. Let’s go cosmic!

Pyar Karnevale

pyar

Asha Bhosle – Pyar Karnevale

“Its rising is not bright
nor its setting dark

Unceasing, continuous
Branching out in roots innumerable
Forever sending forth the serpent coil
of living things
Mysterious as the formless existence
to which it returns

Twisting back
Beyond mind

We say only that it is form from the formless
Life from spiral void”

—Prehistoric Prayers by Timothy Leary

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

China

china 1China – China

5.53 a.m. Despite the overwhelming fatigue sleeping is out of question. Sunrise in May is simply too precious to be missed. Perhaps gentle airy cigarettes on the balcony? China 12″ roaring at 108 bpm? Of course not. The people next door would probably mind. Be quiet. Don’t smoke. The downsides of overtly safe urban housing. Would it be too late for a drive to archipelago to find abandoned buildings?

Take Off ’77 Part II

take off 2Crazy Boom Sisters – Take Off ’77 Part 2

Wonder why it doesn’t read 33 rpm + 8% on the label, because then this innocent looking 7″ transforms into a cosmic monster. Apparently models in the picture have found the rare 12″ version.

Special message to all who are Disco

bday2015_1

Ben Thomas – Sooleymon

Midnight Movers Unltd – Follow The Wind pt 1.

Face it. You’re no saint so indulge to the max in your vices at least once a year. In the evening of 16th of January A.D. 2015, give in to gluttony, lust and greed and celebrate with us all that is excessive, over-the-top and brilliant in the music we love, for hours and hours. Italo, funk, disco and beyond. Rare tracks and anthems. It’ll all be there to really wallow in, from exotic, sophisticated hothouse flowers to indescribable, sick sonic funghi from hell. From deep powerful vocals by mighty Divas to the flimsiest sighs from young girls who look like they’re sixteen but act like they’re twenty-one. No holds barred. Top tunes from a top lineup. The event will be re-broadcast on the 17th in case it’ll all become too much for you – though of course too much of a good thing is the best thing ever.
