Scientologist Goes Disco

Richard Yared – I Like You

This track is off the Success album by Richard Yared, recorded as a hommage to L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.

How to start to gradually free your immortal alien soul – the Thetan – from the empty shell that is your body on earth? The first steps are a series of tests with an E-Meter, an invaluable aid to measuring your mental state. These are followed by the offical Purification Rundown detoxification processes at one of the countless Churches and Missions around the world. After a contribution of approximately 250 000 American dollars you can then aim at the highest Thetan levels, offered at Scientology’s Advanced Organizations at Los Angeles, Sydney, East Grinstead and Copenhagen, for actual immortality and dancing in outer space with Tom Cruise, Isaac Hayes, John Travolta, Juliette Lewis and the fabulous Priscilla Presley! Having possibly been subjected to beatings, forced abortions and rape are by that time all forgotten, of course.

Plastic Stars

Cinema – Plastic Stars

There’s only one question you need to ask yourself before playing a record: Does this track bring people closer to Disco?

Shadows in a Disco

Superguitar – Shadows in a Disco

Impossible but apparently true – this adrenaline rocket of pure disco sound that explodes on contact has not been given a proper post here before. A snippet from the medley sequing together hits by the British band The Shadows got included ages ago in a mix, though.

The 7″ from 1977 is easy to get but the full long version combining the two sides only seems to exist inside a “Disco Sound” 3 album box out in in France.

Tangoul Dragustei

5T – Tangoul Dragustei

Doar Noi Doi

Vei Fi Mereu Mai Drag

Three more cuts from the 5T album, my personal fave of the month. Tangoul Dragustei is an improved version of Jinny and the Flamboyants “Cumparsita Dance” and check out the other two covers as well – familiar tunes spiked with strong acid.

California Gold long version

Marc Seaberg – California Gold album version

Size matters. If you like Marc’s seven which was posted here ages ago get the full twelve inches for a much more muscular experience. The 14:48 lp version from 1978 has long instrumental passages with twanging guitars and lots of wild west saloon ambiance, German style.

Eastern Doping

Way back in kindergarden, we were painting Misha, the mascot of ’80 Moscow Olympic Summer Games. I was allowed to finish mine at home, resulting in next days total disbelief of my nurse in my deepest affirmation I was helped by nobody. Nothing changed over the years, still the misjudged mastermind (or slick cheater?). Here is Italy’s homage to our furry friend.

Malvina and Veronika

Malvina & Veronika – Lazka Je Haluzka Ceresnova Opplavaj, Odid, Odcestuj

Off a 1977 album from Czechoslovakia containing two sides of medleys, with announcements and spoken engouragement typical of east block records of the era. The music is mostly horrific polkas but there are a couple of fine passages courtesy of Malvina and Veronika.

Eroticus

Claude Cédric – Eroticus

Instead of the expected moody seduction piece suggested by the title Monsieur Cédric delivers a fast zipping instrumental from 1978, with a flute and lots of Joie de Pénétrer.

Talking of which, now that we’re about to be bored by the ads to the sequel to the Fifty Shades of Grey film and seeing the book it is based on in shop windows everywhere, it’s time to revisit a sequel that’s genuinely stirring. Recently out on Corgi Books is the part deux of Pauline Réage’s – real name Anne Desclos – erotic classic The Story of O. Called “a pornographic book without a trace of obscenity” by Graham Greene and “a deeply moral homily” by J.G.Ballard, the first novel is an intricate fable with alternative beginnings and endings and an alluring air of stylistic abstraction.

The follow-up is called Return to the Chateau, originally published in 1969 as Retour á Roissy. Shorter but just as elegantly perverse as The Story of O, Return to the Chateau is a must-read for anyone into quality underground fiction with a bite. Here O accepts to be taken back to the luxurious castle she was trained in, again to submit to the sexual whims of a well heeled cast of libertines, including Sir Stephen and the very cruel lesbian Anne-Marie from part one. “O was surprised at how happy she was to find herself once again ensconced in the tight-fitting black corset. She had obeyed and inhaled deeply when Anne-Marie had to her to, while Monique tightened the laces. The corset came up to beneath her breasts, which an unobtrusive vertical stay kept separated and a narrow horizontal stay supported so firmly that they were projected foward, and seemed all the more fragile and free.

“Your breasts are really made for the riding crop, O” Anne-Marie noted. “Do you realize that?” “I know, O said, “but please, I beg you…”

Anne-Marie burts out laughing.

“Oh don’t worry, I’m not the one who makes that kind of decision. But if any of the clients should want to whip you, you can protest and beg until you’re blue in the face.”

There was also a film version called Story of O part 2 that unfortunately had zero to do with either the book or Just Jaeckin’s wonderful film based on the first novel.
