Eleanor Rigby

stillUranium – Eleanor Rigby

Played this at -8 on Friday. Familiar melody with pounding bass and insanely loud effects caused a few curios questions.

I Cugini Di Campagna

I Cugini Di Campagna – I Suoi Consigli

I Cugini Di Campagna – Come To Canterbury

Even though these guys are folk rockers Disco requirements are met in their “I Suoi Consigli”. The Canterbury tune is the theme from Canterbury Proibiti, one of the low budget softcore sex comedies made to cash in on the success of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s bawdy Canterbury Tales in 1972. Sort of danceable too, in a vaguely barefoot hippie-ish manner.

Slim Line

Slim Line - You can dance, you can do it (Part 1)
“Thou shalt not forget the real classics”

I first heard this song in a Loud-E mix nearly a decade (yikes) ago, but recently dug it out again and thought it deserved to be re-highlighted. The sample below is from the 7″, but the 12″ has longer versions with a nice long breakdown part, so I recommend you purchase that one if you wanna really stay slim.

Gui-tico

Gold

Another Tico-Tico cover, this time in duelling guitar disco style. Found it on an old AMIGA compilation, in Istanbul of all places. Reminds me of Guitar Twins – Amorada.

Valdorado

FrankValdorHi

Two songs from the prolific and slightly menacing (though generally uninteresting) hornblower Frank Valdor. Tico Tico should be known to most, but comes here in a nice version. Batida do Samba might just be Frankie’s best song.

Kleeblatt Pt. 2

G.E.S

Another great tune on same LP like yesterdays Familie Silly post and as much Disco as you can get from any East German outfit. Apart from two exceptions, all lyrics on this LP are written by Kurt Demmler, with about 10000 songs reliable workhorse of the republic, who committed suicide in 2009 due to pedophilia charge. If the vocals are not your tea, an instrumental version can be found under a different moniker.

Nick The Chopper

cfdBarış Manço – Nick The Chopper

Whoever Nick The Chopper was, he must have lived an utterly miserable life. Strange campfire groove was later discofied on a rare c-cassette release. This is a more common 7″ version.

Wer tanzt Boogie?

schuldisco

DDR 1980. A young ambitious band releases their first songs along with two other young ambitious bands within the Kleeblatt series on Amiga, where else. The same group should become within a few years one of the most beloved East German Super Combos. Here, the former accompanying text:

In its current form “Familie Silly” has existed since the spring of 1978. Versatile use of keyboards and vocal harmonies characterize the band’s sound, which is based on Funky and Rock. The musicians played before any of these “Phoenix”, the “College Formation”, the Gerd Michaelis Chor as well as in the Horst Krüger Band. “Familie Silly” so far produced 10 tracks for radio. Guest appearances in various European countries, including three times in Romania.

Pure dynamite.

Visit Venus – Strassen Kaempfert

Dj Steve Mak from Hong Kong knows his elegant lounge beats and it was he who brought this smooth Bert Kaempfert-inspired take on Space’s Magic Fly to my attention.

Music flows warmly like artifical sunlight thru the Farfisa 200 machine into your head. We have two cover versions here, played with that instrument. One Possessed is actually Michael Sembello’s Maniac.

Ballerino & Miseria

gran

Los Campesinos – Ballerino

Los Campesinos – Miseria

Italy 1975. Miseria is a strange version of A Far L’Amore Comincia Tu, the Raffaella Carra tune heard during the party scenes of the excellent and visually extremely luscious La Grande Bellezza (2013) by Paolo Sorrentino, from which the image is from. The a-side Ballerino is the definitive take on Georgie Dann’s Campesino, one of the all-time package holiday disco classics.

The Laughing Policeman

Laughing Policeman

New World Symphony – Theme From The Laughing Policeman

The theme from a San Francisco-set police action film from 1973, the kind they just cannot manage anymore. The recent A Walk Among the Tombstones with Liam Neeson tried it’s best but while not a failure by any means, it still wasn’t bleak, grimy and brutal enough.
