Brash, excessive, aggressive, flashy, compulsive, humorous, enthusiastic, uninhibited, extravagant, vulgar, funky, thrusting, jazzy, energetic, ostentatious, neurotic, exuberant, dramatic – American disco can be like that. Check it out here. Long versions, of course.
It’s summertime, and many of you have of course already booked your tickets for this years cruiseship vacation. Just make sure you don’t read too many of the stories on Kendall Carver’s website, or watch the movie Death Cruise from 1974, then you’ll be fine. Instead, get warmed up with this one, produced by the crew behind Jumbo.

We are 30 meters deep, then 60 meters –
Guess what? It’s another one of those records that you’ve tossed aside countless times, while digging at flea markets. With one of the worst band names ever, you are once more forgiven for doing so. But this one is a pretty serious jam and can be picked up for a few cents, just about anytime you feel like it.
There’s absolutely no need for stereos in an Instant Motion Cheetah. But what to listen in the garage when you need to adjust the valves before you can rev it safely to 8000 rpm? Super Dream GT-2000 makes your right foot itch.
Pure sexploitation stuff here! A man has been taken by a spaceship, and had the craziest, sleaziest sex with a horny female E.T. The fun seems to have ended too fast, as the man after a while finds himself in the same street where he was taken, trying to convince a policeman about the truth of what happened to him. Bad idea! The handcuffs are immediate, and the extraterrestrial sex just a distant memory… This is Star Whores, baby!
Star Whores is a track taken from a curious LP, titled Porno Disco, issued by USA based Party Records Company label, in 1978. All the tracks in this LP deal with sex, and there is a strong connection between this item and US porn industry of the period, as it was recorded in Van Nuys, California, the “Mecca” of 70s sex based entertainment in West Coast. The style is afunk-disco which is quite far from my tastes, anyhow i think is a quite interesting piece of recent sex history.
For your pleasure, here are the titles of all tracks:
A1 – Soda Crackers
A2 – I Wanna Do It Again
A3 – Star Whores
A4 – Super Fucker
B1 – Working At The Whore House
B2 – If It Has a Pussy
B3 – Go Down Moses
B4 – Disco Dick

Tunes poured from the Holy Grail of Finnish disco, the 1978 album by Fredi. Tähtien Taa translates as To Beyond The Stars, Se Outoa On (a version of Magic Fly, check the repeated chanting of the original title near the end of the clip) as It’s Strange, and Syntinen Yö as The Sinful Night:”…I can sense the degredation, she dances and blasphemes, coaxing my vices out into the open…”
The immortal Touch a Touch a Touch a Touch Me is here of course in a stunning dancefloor friendly 1975 version, along with other numbers huge at each Annual Transylvanian Convention as well as on the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania.
