This German Private recording from ’78 sounds and smells exactly as rare as it is. Could have been recorded in one of the guys bedroom or in the garage with a cheap drum kit and a Moog synthesizer. We will never know but we will dance our ass off to it with waving hands in the air!
German krautrock band Satin Whale composed the soundtrack for the 1978 movie “Die Faust in der Tasche (Fist in the pocket)”. Quite good record all the way through. Lot’s of synth action!
There’s been a lot of talk about this German private pressing the last couple of years, so i thought it was time to get it on Overfitting. Rumours said that only few copies exists and they originally was giving out at a concert as some kind of promo.
A side “Summer’s almost over” which i like the most is in some way more a rock tune. First time i heard it i couldn’t really understand the fuzz about it, but i got sucked into it’s vibe and it became very addictive.
Flip side is a real disco banger and if you’re into the more cheesy German style you will love this! Aren’t we all feeling as the king of the disco night sometimes? i know i am..
It doesn’t get much more disco than this German 7 inch flip side. At first you might be a bit unimpressed but after 1 min. the hook is stock and you don’t want it to stop.
2 very nice tunes from the German Kraut band Cogwheel or Coghweel as it’s spelled on the Slide-Projection 7 inch. The Latin Glass tune is from their ( as far as i know) only LP -Sightsound.
Atlantik 74 – My Love
is a german private hippie disco track with a kind of lo-fi feeling. It seems that this recording is made by some turkish immigrants, released on a small private label.
Ok, this track is not the most obscure disco gem, but sometimes my kitsch-camp taste comes out of the closet.
“King of Nightlife” is the b-side of “Buy Mi Bananas” 7″, released by CBS in 1979, by german Group Eyes On Fire (the same that in 1978, under name Eyes, released, as b-side of “Times are Changing” 7″, the nice track “Black Caravan”).
A-side is what it promises; a terrible (even for my taste) caribbean style track maybe good for a Carnival cruise ship party. I found “King of Nightlife” not so bad, and there is a small break in the middle, with male voice hypnotically repeating the title of the track.
Here it is!
Before settling for an airline, check that the films are satisfying and the pampering bag up to scratch. As they are bound to disappoint, fly with our sounds from Overfitting Disco instead as we definitely provide first class in-flight entertainment, more effectively than the latest Marvel superhero flick or Peppermint breath fresheners from Aveda.
This one has season tickets to my recordbag. I’ve played it a lot and still love it. Hypnotising and dreamy groove by the German Klinkhammer crew. If you’ve seen me dj’ing you will probably have danced to it. Look for it in the cheap crates
This is not that Philadelphian Q of “The Voice Of Q”, but German Q with sole LP of the same name (X Records, 1982) which costs from 100 € at Discogs.
Video is scenes from “Zabriskie Point” and it suits the song, its mood and anxiety quite well.
Sorry for the lack of posts on my end, but I’ve been terribly busy with Shampoo, our new upcoming webradio system. And it’s coming out really good.
This out-of-this-world EP was once for sale at the Cosmic Dudes’, then nothing… until now.
Comet – Cometen Zauber (1979)
Don’t ask me what Frodo and the Hobbits have to do with all of this, but it’s really good.
Of course, it’s now included in the radio database 🙂
Vintage communist disco from Eastern Europe. It starts with regular (but twisted) disco, passes through electronic wtf territories, and finally ends with unashamedly cheesy italo disco and synthpop.
Yes, I know, the mixing is either atrocious or non-existent, but most tracks were severely warped. I honestly did my best. Excessive sweating, and astronomically huge amounts of swear words were involved in my failed attempt at beatmatching everything.
