Hollywood 7

05_Flatbed_1 - NOVEMBER

Alides Hidding – Hollywood 7

Can it be – no Hollywood 7 here at the Overfitting blog until now? High time for this tremendous Dutch disco drama from 1980, about the Omaha Beauty Queen who journeyed to Hollywood to seek fame and fortune in the Film Business. Only the cruel Fates of Tinseltown failed to recognize her talent and so, alone and disillusioned, she was soon forced to change gears and pursue a career in prostitution.

Mr. Money

Model in Yellow Striped Caftan and Pants

Barrabas – Mr Money

Barrabas – Casanova

Get the evening under way with a splash of Cava, a tapas board and natty sonic accessorizing from this trusted Spanish band. The cuts are from their 1972 album Power.

L’Orchestre Electronique – Bladerunner

L’Orchestre Electronique – Westway

L’Orchestre Electronique – Oxygene

The 80s: black on black, John Woo heroic bloodshed films and lots of synthesizer music like this. Westway was already included in my birthday mix.

Midnight Horror

mdhBox 20th – Midnight Horror

Party is peaking. Fingers desperately seeking for another trusty banger. Moment of hesitation. Sure it mixes nicely and has a driving bassline. But can I drop something this sleazy for the unsuspected dancers trying to reach enlightenment or better still, each other? I’m afraid I can. Wild, loud and dangerous disco sounds tonight at Blanko, Turku.

Compravendita

magnum

Magnum – Compravendita

Easy listening warhorses occasionally get it right, either accidentally or after having decided enough schlager is enough. Here’s a gritty 1979 midtempo track by Alberto Salerno and Angelo Valsiglio, more known for their contributions to the careers of people like who Ornella Vanoni and Julio Iglesias. Interestingly Angelo Valsiglio’s cv also includes the ghastly/hilarious Buone Vacanze by Ilona Staller.

Insh’Allah

chr1

Mike Batt – Insh’Allah

And from behind Yuhua Ben and Z’Ab twenty maidens appeared, carrying large plates of Sikbaj made with vingar; from the tribe of Fazara seven pots of Fattoush with mint, cucumber, olive oil, garlic, and onions from IbnZuqqa; rice puddings; mint tea; Quwarmah Al Dajaj with nutmegs and dates and cooked in Khudr Almazad juice of rather startling green color; orange blossom Khafeh; roasted and salted broad beans; sole fillets poached in fish stock and lime and garnished with shellfish and served under a rich buttery sauce as teached by the great Naswad Asaf ud-Dowlah; elephants milk; eight hundred sparrows killed by the the falcon of Quraysh Abd al-Rahman, who escaped by his cunning the spearheads of the lances and the blades of the swords of Appasid Al-Mansur, after wandering solitary through the deserts; four camels stuffed with sheep, chicken, fish, rice, lemons, honey and eggs; lamb cooked by man who was the son of a cook, wise, honest and pleasant; fish produced by the same hand and with equal sagacity in it’s preparation; and Yhua Ben cried it to be neverending.

‘Na Sera ‘E Maggio

Sea-Beach-Birds-Seagull-Sunset

Giancarlo Chiaramello – ‘Na Sera ‘E Maggio

From the ’78 Italian LP “Naples pop dimension”. This entire album is just incredible. Full on orchestra disco with lots of synth tweaking and not by anybody, but the synth genius behind the Automat LP, Mario Maggi. I’m not even sure if i find this track the best. “Tu Ca Nun Chiagne” is also banging or the slow one on the b side I Te Vurria Vasa!… if you don’t have this one, go get it!

Itchikdana

al-buraq-5

I remember way way back, always finding the Sherry 12″ “Let’s Go Wild” at fleamarkets. I bought it at least twice, hoping it was any good. It wasn’t, and still isn’t, but this track from the LP is an excellent little piece of orientalism.

İsyanimi Bír Sen Anla

özdemir

Özdemir sounds like he could really use a glass of water, but nevertheless pulls off a nice riviera-disco style on this one. No relation to Tayyip (I think)

Laser Beam

tumblr_m2dnw9CqGe1qzzmvco1_500

Let’s grab another stone cold Italian killer from the disco fridge. This record was purchased on a Danish fleamarket a few years back, and until Carlo told me otherwise, I thought it only existed on Pinnacle Records UK. Most of the LP is pretty bad, but Laser Beam really stands out…to put it mildly. Also used in me & Nixxon’s latest OD B-Day mix.

Elisan’s Song

A-2050593-1294167638.jpeg

This song by the relatively unknown Franco Del Moro falls solidly into the overfitting-italo subcategory, and was perhaps a tribute to his girlfriend at the time? Or his dog? Or parrot?

This was the second of a series of releases on his own private label FDM (his initials). It is also by far the best and most balanced of his productions, that tend to either be too “experimental” or too bland.

Higher And Higher

strobe clubDanny Taylor – Higher And Higher

In the night you often end up building sets around records with strange indefinable presence. I’m looking forward to see if the hard to please disco freaks will approve this Belgian b-side.

Dance The Boxer

John-Conteh-BW-500

John Conteh – Dance The Boxer

John Conteh is a Light Heavyweight World Champion boxer from GB. He also had celebrity status and everything that came with it: fast cars, heavy partying and yes! studio time to record a kickass disco seven in 1975. His younger brother Mike also put one out two years later called Jump The Gun which isn’t half bad either.

Nicht Schummeln, Liebling!

Chris Doerk und Frank Schöbel – Wenn Wir Wollen, Dann Geht’s Los

Chris Doerk – Die Sonne Kommt Immer Wieder

Two in-my-opinion totally irresistible 1974 DDR tunes aus dem DEFA-film Nicht Schummeln, Liebling! / No Cheating, Darling! It’s a football comedy with highly spirited dance scenes performed by tanned girls in miniskirts and white knee-length vinyl boots and boys who are shirtless or wear funky garage workwear stained with motor oil. Super Atmo, super Laune, super Party, supergeil, Super Urlaub, super Wetter, super Sommer, supergeil!

Sticky: Overfitting Disco 7 Report

od7bp-841831156473173

Gypsy Spirit

gsPendulum – Gypsy Spirit

Kitschy but catchy tune with all too many words. Thanks to the bounding bass I’ve almost played it out loud. Recorded from a Canadian DJ 45 with thicker labels and longer mixes.
