Locomotive Breath

cat gang challengerCat Gang – Locomotive Breath

That bass kicks like a 528 Hemi with mechanical roller cam and individual throttle bodies. So who cares about a luggage rack option or painfully pretensions poses, when can just move on. Please do remember to check an even more equally impressive version Jussi posted about 3 billion years ago.

Karate

One of trendiest soviet song of season 1982-83: underground disco-rock smash “Karate” from “Leysya Pesnya” (“Flow Song”) group.

The song has never been officially released. This version is taken from bootleged live performance (1982).

Still I’m Sad

First there were The Yardbirds with 1965’s “Still I’m Sad” – 1st goth song ever (as some believe).

Boney M. made its heartfelt version in 1977.

But we took hairy & marasmic hard-rock cover made by Ritchie Blackmore’s hand (1975). Fantastic cowbell work turns it into sparkling funk-rock stick of dynamite.

Great Battle

Everyone saw classic rasta-movie “Rockers” or, at least, this snippet with a battle between Soul Music and Roots Rock Reggae:

A name of the winning song isn’t much interesting for visitors of this blog (just in case, this is The Jays and  Ranking Trevor’s “Queen Majesty”).

Second place is taken by acid-disco track (in style of Horse Meat Disco) “Get On Up (Get On Down)” (1978) of Roundtree:

Photochrome

I had spotted this little gem in a SpAceLex’s DJ set, but I couldn’t find it anywhere for sale… until I recently discovered that it had been bootlegged by Amplified Orchestra.

So here’s the full length vocal version (over 7 min. long):

Cento – Photochrome (Part 1) (Amplified Orchestra Bootleg)

The instrumental track should be uploaded to the webradio very soon.

Мими Иванова и Старт – Диско ракета

Obscure Balkanton release from 1979 (extremely rare in Western Europe anyway), but surprisingly, parts of the record label’s back catalogue are now digitally available for download at places like Amazon: look for the Anglicized reference Mimi Ivanova and “Start” (or “Home”?) – Disco Raketa + Disco Vek

Sven Grünberg (“The Dead Mountaineer Hotel” OST)

Euphoric space-rock theme of Estonian electronic musician Sven Grünberg (in nowadays he is a director of Buddhism Institute in Tallinn).

This film (1979, Tallinn-film, Estonia) is based on sci-fi novel of Strugatsky brothers (soviet writers duo) and primarily curious as an example of estonian representation of west-europian capitalistic life-style: cosmic music, scandinavian interiors, bald-headed women-robots and, well… of course, sex.

The Handsome Man On His Chopper

Les Marylènes – Le beau tétard sur son cigare (1978)

Ok, it’s not disco. But it displays a four-to-the-floor beat, an electronic bassline, and it was composed by Les Martin Circus.
