I Need You Tonight

r-1051158-1188222291.jpg

Punkin Machine – I Need You Tonight (1981)

This tune is produced by J. Cucuzzella (better known for his work with Suzy Q) and written with S. Panzera and G. D’Orazio.

The background of Punkin Machine was more rock, punk and new-wave but they found then another direction with those producers when they release this single and also “Stand Me Up“.

Black Holes

I wonder if Stephen Hawking has ever listened to some Space Disco. Amanda Lear could have taught him a couple of quantum tricks for sure.

Feel Alright

Komiko – Feel Alright (1982)
(Listen to the full track)

Not much to say about this song except it is a groovy thang! Beautiful soul chant, bassline and a few effects full of funkyness produced by Gary R. Turnier (from Gary’s Gang) and the influent Darryl Payne.

Superman

Strings and flangers: the ultimate combination. Another very fine tune from the great period of Disco.

Volcano & Wind

eveningfire.jpg

Beppe Loda and Francesco Boscolo are back.

I still don’t know if these are brand new records or some kind of unreleased material from the 80s. Anyway, it is as lovely as I was first expecting from the duo (even if my favourite is still Basic, by far).

Egotrya – Volcano (2007)
Egotrya – Wind (B. Loda Version) (2007)

Memory Control One – Counter (B. Loda Elettro Monster Version).mp3 (2007)

As maybe you’ve already noticed, it appears that it’s not the original Egotrya line-up (the one from the 80s) but only Boscolo behind the synthesisers, with a little help from Loda on both sides of the record.

Disco Alien

nostromo.jpg A Disco cash-in version of the Jerry Goldsmith‘s original score.
Released the same year as the movie, in 1979.

The long and creepy soundscapes have been removed in favour of plain 4/4 beats. Not memorable but somewhat fun (in a sense).
