King Boxer

King Boxer-02

Chen Yung Yu – Tian Xia Di Yi Quan

Delirious battering rams for the senses, the best of the Shaw Brothers kung fu epics were a huge influence on the art of Pierre&Gilles. It’s all there in the likes of King Boxer/The Five Fingers of Death (Tian Xia Di Yi Quan, 1972), The New One-Armed Swordsman and The Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan – check the glittering surfaces, the candyfloss colors, the decorous compositions and the golden skin tones of the good guys.

Musically, the themes were a mad mix of Morricone-y melodies, burning hot beats and crazy arrangements. Disco was one leap away.

Vecchio’s Raptus

raptus

Michele Del Vecchio – Raptus

As yet, we do not have Overfitting Disco Awards, an event that could be recognized as the preeminent multi-cultural awards show from the outsider point of view. The awards could celebrate the accomplishments of the less ordinary in the fields of music, literature and film and also honor individuals or groups who promote or promoted disco-ness through creative endeavors. Listeners could vote on the winners.

The disco artist of the year – Madonna? Never, she was always all about money and generally being a cow. I could well imagine Michele Del Vecchio getting quite a few votes with this 1979 track, though.

Amicus Gaudété

gaudete

Amicus – Gaudété

Music education supporters advocate the importance of exposing young people to a variety of instruments, choral arrangements, and styles of music to enhance their educational experience and foster their academic, social, and emotional growth. Ulla is currently learning music theory and participating in her school band playing works of religious nature, such as Gaudété. This is a piece published in 1582 as a part of the Piae Cantiones, a collection of sacred Finnish/Swedish songs.

Classic European

HELP

Classic European

Two thirds of the men in our test group rated eurodisco as their favorite. It’s shaped exactly right (to allow more movement) and is lubricated inside and out. Testers said it flexed well and the action lasted a long time.

Our eurodisco provides lasting pleasure for both you and your partner(s) with warm, tingling sensations that allow for the highest possible level of sensitivity.

Too obvious? It sure kicks like a triple espresso! Pointless remarks on Laverda Jotas: They look cooler on blue backgrounds and stripped nude for the café races.

One Man Ain’t Enough

Jabara – One Man Ain’t Enough

Jabara is Paul Jabara of course and this is his first recording, made in 1975. The vinyl is in terrible condition but perhaps the hiss and the scratches only add to the questionable charm of the thing?

Catalina

Cusco – Catalina

Cusco – Alcatraz

Not only were they the biggest fashion crime of the 80s, the Decade That Taste Forgot, they were the biggest fashion crime ever. Anyone who was alive during that era cannot repress the mortifying memory of the Catalina jacket. Did you own one? If so your sin cannot be washed away.

The jackets were already around during the sixties when they may have been novel and sporty with nylon mesh vents to stop the wearer from overheating. During the early 80s, with the advent of the Jogging Chic, the jackets made an unwelcome comeback in satin or any cheaper variant. Worn with baggy blue jeans, or worse, with hideous gym trousers in retina-searing neon colors, they made the decade pure hell from beginning to end. In fact, the Catalinas persisted well into the 90s and you can see them even today, especially in Germany and Russia.

The actual music is great and obviously wasn’t made with the hellish jackets in mind. The titles refer to tourist spots in California. Still, chances are you’ll spot potbellied men in Catalina jackets there, too.

Beranek – Dra Til Hælvete

Beranek

I really have to thank my “disco-friend” Italocarlito for having let me know of this record few days ago, as the A-side of it (track Dra Til Hælvete), has been remixed recently by two world-famous DJs and, maybe, i would have been able to find it at a much higher price, in the future. Dra Til Hælvete (literally Go To Hell) was released as a 7″ in 1981, by Norwegian label Mind Expanding Records, with lyrics, music, and interpretation by Beranek (Espen Beranek Holm, born 1960), a comedian and musician quite well-known in Norway, where he hosts the still running weekly radio satire show Hallo i uken, and for being a frequent presence on TV show Løvebakken (a version of comedy panel game show If I Ruled the World). In the early 1980s he also hosted a pop-show on NRK radio, called Happy Hour. The present track talks about a man cruising the streets searching for drugs, but short of money, fells prey of the dealer and heroin, and goes to hell. The controversial lyrics made this song banned by many radio stations, making it a sort of cult among Scandinavian DJs. It was in fact  repressed in Sweden too, after it reached the number 1 in Norwegian records chart, and there is even a 12″ version, not on label. Ah….track of B-side is Balls & Calls, which i like less, and tells that all men are fixated with….men balls.

Light Flight

iddsmodelpicMagical Ring – Light Flight

Many cars are considerably faster, make sexier noises and have better proportions than a Citroën DS, but if you want to float in peace on almost any kind of road texture, then there’s no better choice than a DS (or CX). In case looks are not that important then any vintage Citroën with hydropneumatic suspension will do the magic. Soundscape best matched with cosmic French libraries. Magical Ring long play is also available as a cassette. Please remember that home taping is not killing music, the greedy dealers are.

The Five Blackies

Pitter-quer-DW-Politik-Space

The Five Blackies – Summer’s Almost Over

The Five Blackies – Disco Nights

There’s been a lot of talk about this German private pressing the last couple of years, so i thought it was time to get it on Overfitting. Rumours said that only few copies exists and they originally was giving out at a concert as some kind of promo.
A side “Summer’s almost over” which i like the most is in some way more a rock tune. First time i heard it i couldn’t really understand the fuzz about it, but i got sucked into it’s vibe and it became very addictive.
Flip side is a real disco banger and if you’re into the more cheesy German style you will love this! Aren’t we all feeling as the king of the disco night sometimes? i know i am..

Schwul

Warmer Sudwind – Schwul

Warmer Sudwind – Der Schwule Markt

Having problems pronouncing German words like “Ficken” and “Bumsen” and “Arschloch”? The main reason behind our mispronunciations is that, when we speak, we’re not used to pressing our lips as tightly shut as Germans are. Another tip is to always break down a long word like
Fünfhundertfünfundfünfzig,
which means five hundred fifty-five. Shorter words are easier, plus there are a lot of anglicisez words like Fisting.

The record was made in 1977 and contains two funky danceable tracks. The upper image is the inner sleeve. Had to modify it a bit with the yellow squares as this is a smut-free blog for the whole family.
