Space Factory – Space Dance
Determined, severely minimalistic bleeps from France, 1978. I’ll be discussing this kind of forgotten sounds during my interview for the Swedish television on the 20th. They are filming in London, Frankfurt and Stockholm, and the program will apparently be sold to all of Europe. Keep your eyes open. – Of course, I’ll be promoting Overfitting at every given change.

Babe

gloria-guidagloria-guida1gloria-guida2

Crazy Colours Orchestra – Babe

Italy, the seventies. The one woman epitomizing Babe-ness in that country during the era was Gloria Guida. The stunningly beautiful actress starred in cheesy soft core comedies like “L’Infirmiera Di Notte” (Night Nurse), as well as in gritty dramas like Fernando Di Leo’s shocking “Avere Vent’Anni/To Be Twenty”, both in 1978 and both available on dvd. Gloria also belts out a disco tune called “Musica E” during the grand dance competition finale of the former film.  Was there ever a soundtrack album?
