Love Queen on Ketamine

Barbarella – Queen of Love

Queen of Love by Barbarella (aka Eva Mango) was always interesting but try the 1980 track slowed down as if on horse tranquilizer.

Jon-Wite Group – Autumn Leaves

A 1975 disco version of Autumn Leaves – another one of them – doesn’t groan under deep melancholia.

Jesahel – more of her

jesahel

Paul Mauriat – Jesahel

Yesterday’s youthful revolutionaries turn to today’s businessmen – but not always. Occasionally, Paul did the opposite.

Лето без тебя как зима (1979)

From what I could understand, back in 1979, Mother Russia decided to eulogize some of its major architectonic achievements through some funky disco tunes in a small konzert-film. Mikhail Boyarskiy and some friends constituted the guest appearance. One of the sweet soft disco tunes involved concerned Mikhail cruising around some beautifully desertic architectonic landscapes. What the song is about, I really couldn’t tell, but this guy sure is a  stylish motherfunker.

Soul Dontac

Exif_JPEG_PICTURE

Valentine Kaneko – b-side

Valentine Kaneko – Soul Dontac

The Soul Dontac is a Japanese disco dance – the flip of the sleeve of the 7″ has a tiny illustration of a simple series of moves: step back with your right foot, step back with your left foot, step to the right side with the right, step to the right side with the left, shake your hips, jump into the start position. To make sure you get it right there’s also something like 1400 words on how to perform the thing. It’s highly unlikely that anyone ever did the Soul Dontac in public, though.

The real action is once again on the b-side.

Adults Only / Solo Per Adulti

Maria Sole – Bestia

Maria Sole – Regné Gnené Gnené

Maria Sole – Sono A Far Pipi

Even though all records here are from our own collections – we never download anything – the views expressed in them do not necessarily reflect the views of the bloggers. Still, we must bring even the most potentailly offensive tracks to your attention. It is our duty to report and to serve.

Maria Sole aka Mara Vittoria Solinas is an Italian singer, actress and a performance artist, along the lines of Barbara Markay whose “It’s Allrite to Fuck All Nite” was posted here earlier. Whereas Barbara promoted light carefree sexuality, Maria had a far weirder agenda. Regné Gnené Gnené is apparently harmless family entertainment but Bestia should be approached with caution. The records are from 1979, as is the tune about peeing.

Voodoo Ju ju Obsession

K. Pythacunthapuserectus – Voodoo Ju Ju Obsession

One the top five names for a disco act. Importantly however, the K. Pythacunthapuserectus track from France doesn’t disappoint voodoo-wise, either.

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.

Katty Line – Adriano

God’s Fingers

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)
