Mon Ami Sico

Sico et Cloé ‎– Mon Ami Sico

Cute French Space Disco. It is fun just to imagine that Rah Band plays for pre-adolescent children. This Production’s name is “Corporation Robotique Internationale”. What a nice name!

Feeling Dizzy

It seems centuries have passed since my last post in this blog. But the disco bug has never left me … and my wallet. Among the records i found this winter, there is one that i think deserves to be posted here. It is a French 7″ of 1980, produced by Jean Lahcene, under the name of Roll-Mops. It contains the songs Cosmic Trip on A-side, and Feeling Dizzy on B-side. But, it’s the second that, i think, deserves more attention. The voice is of Serge Lamy, who in 1982 would have recorded the 7″ containing the song Ça Tourne, a spicy pop funk with latin veins. In short, enjoy!

Chaos

paris chaosQuartz – Chaos

One of those all too common disco tracks everyone has and that’s why I’ve never dared to play it in public. Kinda sad thinking how good it sounds hearing it over and over again while watching rain dancing on my windowsill. Might sound the part at the parties on 120 db at 6.17 a.m. In the picture something horribly chaotic, but disturbingly peaceful at the same time. Library books floating on the streets of Paris after the catastrophic floods in 1910.

Rocket Men – Rocket Man

Rocket Man.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My favourite weapon is a rocket carrying perfumed hearts which spread sexual desire and love all around. Exactly the same depicted in the sleeve from the Disc’Az label 7″ “Rocket Man”, by French project Rocket Men, issued in 1974. The vocal version is on b-side, but i absolutely prefer the instrumental one, on a-side. Rocket Men are no else than the later called Rockets, and this track already has the space-influenced characteristics of the group. It is not an obscure disco track naturally, but i think it deserves to be posted.

Bubble Bubble

Underwater

Yan Tregger – Bubble Bubble

How to seduce a mermaid? The obvious choice would be to play this into the ocean. There’s lots of waterproof equipment available just for that. Very experimental piece by Yan Tregger. France ’74

Break of Dawn

Christopher Laird – Break of Dawn

There’s been some references on the blog to this track. It was also featured in the great guest mix by Geoffrey LaRue. Christopher Laird is the man behind The Bumpers. Writer of black jack’s Nag Nag and probably a lot more. The 7 inch is the most common find, but there’s a 12 inch promo out there -so watch out! France ’79

Good Time Girl

Burano and his Gypsie Caravan – Good Time Girl

When this girl enter the room everyone will have a good time. Lots of sound bending and other kinds of synth freakout on this French moog monster from ’73.

Colours of summer

amazeing_sunset_by_murraymullet-d36hbzr

Summertime is near, which of course means holidays, parties and festivals. But sometimes its also great to just lie in the grass with your strawhat on, while gazing at some ancient monuments or the sun setting over the ocean…and listening to tunes like this.

Legs O’ Feelin

papasoul

1977 Power funk soul from France, the package is complete with appropriate moanings and a picture sleeve with a black guy (?) in a deliciously terrible leather suit, that sure hits me like a cannonball.

Roots

 

roots

Leo Carrier productions are still relatively underrated among disco freaks. Leo teamed often with fellow Gilbert di Nino, for monikers such as Paradise/New Paradise/Love Affair as well as the only known disco excursion of miss Claudia Cardinale. Before prices skyrocket I highly suggest you grab this one, as the sample really doesn’t give justice to the whole track and the full LP is a masterpiece from beginning to end. An epitomy of what disco should be to me. Big dressing tip for the guests of the next disco party: attire must be the one depicted in the image. A leopard statue in the setting is the golden ticket of course.
