Space Movin’

Candy Darling and the Viscounts – Space Movin’
(East World/Toshiba Emi 1978)

A Japanese pressing by an act named after a dead Warhol superstar. The origin of this release is hard to tell as most of the info written on the sleeve is not in English. The instrumental track is written by Lee Hazlewood – surely this can’t be the same guy who sang with Nancy Sinatra during the 60’s?

Ami-Amie

temps-de-vacances.JPG

J.-J. Debout & J.-D. Mercier – Ami-Amie (1978)

The OST of French film “Le Temps Des Vacances” ( about a 15 yrs old girl who takes her school teacher as her holiday lover)  has a ridiculous sleeve but inside there’s a piece of electro-lite disco that apparently got totally ignored when new, like so many interesting soundtrack tunes.

The track is credited to Jean-Jacques Debout and Jean-Daniel Mercier. Is the latter guy related to Frédéric Mercier, the man behind the fab Pacific album?

Dance Macabre

bomarzo.JPG

VC-People – Dance Macabre (1980)

Another one from Germany – a moody dark disco track of a krautrock LP “Mystery of Bomarzo“.

Recorded at Emulab Electronic Music Laboratory Munich, with synthesizers from Roland, Oberheim, Moog and Sequiental Circuits. Sequencers from Roland ABZ Zet-Electronics. Vocoder from Syntovox. Music computer from Fairlight using Fairlight’s Music-composition language. Sound-recording and mixing by Klaus Netzle and  Hans Mühlbauer. Digital informations have been used for sound-generation and as control-functions for analog systems. Sehr impressive, ja?

There’s another lesser dance tune “Moonless Night” but rest of the LP is basically crap, vocal tracks with an occult narrative of some sort.
