Dillon’s Downtown


Dillon’s Downtown

Dillon’s Downtown was an enormous upmarket disco in the corner of West 5th Street and South Grand Avenue in Los Angeles. The venue, a converted hotel with a ballroom and meeting areas, had three floors with slightly different music in each. The main space throbbed with a mix of popular hustle beats, anthemic big-room bass, sleek ’n’ shiny synths, strings, cosmic arps, grand pianos, huge FX and Epic Drama. The crowd was somewhat dressy but they certainly danced. Going up the stairs from the main hall to the smaller rooms you would see people teaching each other the latest moves in the lounges. The too-tired-to-move-anymore were slumped on the carpeting, rubbing their feet or leaning silently against the walls.

Apart from the intro the music in the mix contains big hits played at the club during the second week of June 1978. Check the final track I Wanna Dance by Marathon, an El Bimbo on speed kind of frantic pounder from Pete Bellotte & co. Quite a tune.

Manolo, Un Poquito Mas


Manolo Gas & Tinto Band Bang – Quizas Quizas Quizas


This version by the much-in-demand Manolo Gas does not that much differ from the rest of the disco remakes of standards that were massively popular in 1976 – until he starts to throw in peculiar synth noises.

“1976” has more tunes from the period in question, most with the then-current latin hustle feel. For an alternative vibe also much in evidence on the floors in 1976 check out Brass Construction’s monster hit Movin’- you need to know it so you don’t get humiliated when the title turns up in conversation.

“Melissa realized they were heading out of Manhattan. “Where are you taking me?” she demanded. “Home to meet mother?” Her perfume and the rustling of her tighs as she turned to check his reaction were sharp intrusions in the quietly purring Rolls. “No,” Larry drawled, driving steadily. “Not to mother. Just to a big, comfortable place. My summer house. As you already know I happen to be a terrific cook.”
He sounded like a kid. Melissa’s eyes were blazing. “Stop the car. I am taking the subway downtown, to Busby’s. I am going disco dancing like I told you. Without you. And Larry dear, it’s just as well, as your dancing is as bad as your cooking.”

Jacqueline Cole: Deadly Devotions (1975).

Primitive Desire


Primitive Desire

Tracks extremely hot six or seven years ago when this recording was made during a gig. Contains long versions of Eastbound Expressway’s fierce Primitive Desire, Delicate Jan by Azoto, Johnny Guitar by Slang and the anthemic Dream Machine by Disco Dream and the Androids – which absolutely has to be heard in full – plus some Discocross and a bit of Yma Sumac.

Tracks include Djamel Allam: Akin I Lbhar (Au-delà Des Mers), B.E.F: The Secret Life of Arabia, Richard Strange and the Engine Room: Damascus, Ande Popp: Mondo Popp, plus misacellaneous bits and pieces from people like Bernard Lavilliers.

Studio One Los Angeles Mix

studio one

Studio One, Los Angeles Mix

Sounds played thirty seven years ago, the week of April the 18th to 23th 1977 at Studio One disco at 652 North LaPeer Drive in West Hollywood Los Angeles. According to Vince Aletti’s book, dj Paul Dougan listed the German record Jungle People by Soulful Dynamics as one of the hottest tracks. Also popular in clubs that week and included in the mix: the brilliant disco exotica number O Ba Ba by D.C LaRue, the seven minute version of Ritchie Family’s Lady Luck, the non-remixed original version of Kings of Clubs by The Chocolats, the David Todd remix of Faith, Hope & Charity’s You’re My Peace Of Mind, etc.

They used vinyls only in 1977 just like we do now at Overfitting Disco, of course.

Night People Mix (Times Square, October 1976)


Night People Mix

The 3rd in the series based on the club lists in Vince Aletti’s book The Disco Files. The time is October 1976, the music tracks like Night People by Fantastic Four that were introduced at discos earlier as promos and imports. Now out commercially, the records are being pumped thru radios all over, in cars, stores, cocktail bars, hair salons, especially in New York.

The heart of New York is awash with the sound. Talking about Times Square area, the neon-lit urban jungle of blocks around Broadway and Seventh & Eight Avenue, stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Massage parlours, fast food joints, cinemas showing grotesque exploitation and porn films 24 hours a day, every day of the year. People pushing and shoving, loitering around doorways, pimps, pushers, prostitutes, junkies and alcoholics everywhere. Weird smells, smoke, deafening noise, sirens, screams, disco music.

This rich undergrowth of American culture is all gone now, nothing remains of the once vibrant, dangerous and exciting scene. All the cinemas are either gone or transformed and the filth is all cleaned up. Where once films like Rump Humpers or Trap Them And Kill Them lured in the curious or the homeless the latest Pixar animations now play for whole families. Everything is destroyed forever.

The Story is best told in Tales Of Times Square by Josh Alan Friedman, out by Feral House Books as an expanded edition:
“A six-foot-tall black hooker in a blond wig comes strutting down Eighth Avenue. “Wanna go out?” she asks to businessmen walking by. No response. “Looking for a date?”. No-one acknowledges her presence. She stands more aggressively in the middle of the sidewalk, grabbing pedestrians. “Wanna date, honey? Lookin for some sex? Wanna good time? How ‘bout a suck and fuck?”. Everybody just brushes her aside. She feels desperate and screams “DON’T NO ONE WANNA PAY FOR MAH PUSSY?”.

You get to go to Platos’s Retreat, live shows offering couples on stage, greasy restaurants, whorehouses, strip clubs plus all the grindhouses and pornies like The Harem on 249 West: “A double bill of second-run porn is showing, Titillation and Never Enough. Two long, narrow rows of seats are occupied by black transvestites, pre-op transsexuals, subway toilet queens, and confused Japanese tourists. Night and day, they live here for five bucks. Not one empty seat. Ghastly, open-mouthed faces lie unconscious, others are smoking, wheezing, spitting, festering in the warmth of each other’s disease.”

I so want to go back to Times Square but can’t. We still have the music, though.
