Disco Dick (AKA Christian D’Or) has become a household name around these parts by now, mostly because of his catchy nu-disco hit Hot Pants, which Jussi reviewed here. But did you know that he is but the latest in a long line of Dicks, and that there was even a Disco Dick before him? Well, now that particular X-file can finally be opened. The original Disco Dick operated in the LA underworld during the late 1970’s, and while there is no evidence that he actually wore hotpants, he was rumored to be a bit of a nasty character.
Now we are just waiting for the current Disco Dick to hook up with the former, so they can release some new dirt together. In the meantime, you can sample this obscure 1979 detective-disco tune with horror elements, below.
