Funky Jungle

bgfj6516691-918716931367

Black Gorilla – Funky Jungle (1976)

Friendly tip: If the record is priced too high (and it currently is) then either try to find Sweet Promise – Funky Jungle or El Currante – Jungle Fever, it’s the same track except that fewer people care about these two latter bands.

My Name Is Kosmolok

kosmolokmni846818-8681776811718812The Kosmolok musical company (Was it a real musical or just a studio project? I do really hope it never happened on stage)

Kosmolok – My Name is… (1980)

That’s a pity, it’s the only decent track from this double-LP: Happy Birthday Rock ‘N’ Roll. The rest is plain garbage.

Roma Imperial Rock

Riz Ortolani – Roma Imperial Rock (1984)

From the movie I guerrieri dell’anno 2072. The LOUD Simmons drums (or whatever) are frankly a bit too much.

Take me down

F.A.T. – Take Me Down (Dub) (1985)

An obscure release from Greece surely inspired as much by italo disco as prog rock. I love the guitar riffs, the dark bassline and the deep wave like a choir.
