Electric Eyes – White Camels

Electric Eyes – They’re On Their Way Again

Electric Eyes – The Journey To The Other Side

Electric Eyes – Spider

Ominous tracks from the 1983 Warning album. In the picture, the main protagonist in the severe Studio Ghibli (!) shocker The Giant Warrior God Appears In Tokyo. This apocalyptic vision reduces all similarily themed Hollywood efforts into insignificance.

Katty Line – Adriano

FLYER DEL PRIMADONNA,MILANO,1979_n

Take your Fiorucci t-shirt, and come with me, we will do a nice tour of Milan. I have a special time machine that can take us back to 1980, and i assure i know where to bring you… Such exotic places as Primadonna, No Ties and La Nuova Idea are the best gay clubs in town; fashion is not yet the first  business here, but people love to party in the craziest and sometimes home-made attires. Leather men, punks, “Fioruccini” types create a wonderful mix, especially at La Nuova Idea, where often “luna park-style” disco pumps from the speakers. Now the French chanteuse Katty Line is singing her new disco hit Adriano, written and produced in Italy by Phil Sun (name under which hides the great Miro/Mario Baldoni). It’s only midnight, time machine will wait us outside. NOW DANCE!

Track is side-a of a 7″ issued in 1980 by Radio Records. Side-b is  Viens track, a bit slower, but nice too.

Pinkies – God’s Fingers

“And when Joshua heard the noise, he said to Moses, “There is a noise in the camp.” But Moses said: “It is not the noise of the shout of victory, nor the noise of the cry of defeat, but it is the sound of a bass drum I hear, off a record made in France in 1976, on Philips label.” (Exodus 24:18)

Rocky’s Filj ‎– Astrocar

Astrocar

Fast Italian pop rock track dated 1979, by the progressive rock group Rocky’s Filj, which had its name derived from the singer Rocky Rossi. This single was a come back attempt by the group, after some years of stop, due to the detention of one of the members for driving without licence. The label is Shirak, same of some Italian disco classics as Love Filters LP by Chrissy G., and 7″ with Got To Be and Too Many Lovers by Ben Norman, among others.

Mållbergarna – Caravan

Discofied who knows how many times but still, this one from Sweden could well be among the best of the lot, or what do you think? If you don’t agree you’ll surely appreciate the eye candy attached. There’s been plenty of it in the blog this year, with hot vocalists, actors and musicians making us swoon throughout 2015. Now take a look at the Mållbergarna!

Delhi Disco

9NFstlt

Peter Moss, the Sharon producer, made this 1981 tune which actually sounds more Turkish than Indian. It took a few listens for it to sink in, but then it also stayed there.

Hitparade

hqdefault

Strange and sluggish glam tune, with a basic but nice synth and drummachine touch. Probably a floor clearer, but then again, once in a while you need a record that works like that. It definitely doesn’t make you think hitparade.

And yes, it is running on the proper speed.

Pyar Karnevale

pyar

Asha Bhosle – Pyar Karnevale

“Its rising is not bright
nor its setting dark

Unceasing, continuous
Branching out in roots innumerable
Forever sending forth the serpent coil
of living things
Mysterious as the formless existence
to which it returns

Twisting back
Beyond mind

We say only that it is form from the formless
Life from spiral void”

—Prehistoric Prayers by Timothy Leary

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.

Aimer D’Amour (Instrumental)

aimerMalibu Limousine – Aimer D’amour (Instrumental)

My beloved 12″ copy sounds overtly happy at original speed and as happiness has been so last season for ages, you better slow it down for the right mood. The vocal side was already featured in here, but to my ears it’s all about the “instrumental” on the flip.

Orchestra Ezio Landini ‎– Make Up Jour Self

Yes, that’s how it’s spelled on the cover of this little italian piece of sunshine. They did try to fix the mistake though on the label and almost got it right with “Make up your self”. Released on the small Edizione Discografica Borgatti label
