The Handsome Man On His Chopper

lmlbtssc-98836368

Les Marylènes – Le beau tétard sur son cigare (1978)

Ok, it’s not disco. But it displays a four-to-the-floor beat, an electronic bassline, and it was composed by Les Martin Circus.

Bangkok At Night

bayern

Steffi Vinjak – Bangkok At Night

Germany 1976. An aural flashback to the days of the theatrically presented softcore sex film, a cultural phenomenon almost totally wiped out from the face of the earth. Softcore is still being shown in some Asian countries like Japan but the rest of us no longer get to experience the collective embarrasment of having been lured into paying money for something that does not deliver – like are we really this desperate here, trying to get our rocks off watching flabby, badly simulated sex scenes? Jesus christ, there’s somebody jerking off to this at the back! Still, there were things flickering up on those screens that made it all worthwhile, like the outré costumes and the ridiculous sets. Then of course there was the music. “Drei Bayern in Bangkok/Ding Dong” had a typical not-exactly-good but still captivating score by Gerhard Heinz, the guy behind Jerry&Lola’s “Love Love Love”. Check the overblown sub-Shirley Bassey vocals of Steffi Vinjak, here belting out the theme song.

“Drei Bayern in Bangkok” focused on 3 women from the Oberbayern part of Germany getting into “funny” and “sexy” adventures in Thailand. The film premiered in Austria and West Germany in 1976, and went on to be shown at least in Sweden, the USA, Finland (with the title “Bangkok, Paradise of Soft Asses”) and Portugal. In England it was shown in a severely cut version, and in Italy it was optimistically called “Porno Holidays”.

I haven’t had time yet to see if the film is available on dvd.

A Lotta Limbo

limbo1

Billy Strange – A Lotta Limbo

An essential album-side long percussion jam. Billy Strange was an all-around cool songwriter-guitarist-arranger etc who worked with Aretha Frankin and Elvis Presley and wrote the impressive protodisco track DeSade in 1969.

The limbo is a dance originating from the 50’s. It’s still being done in package holiday destinations, especially around the Caribbean. The dancer leans backward and advances under a horizontal pole without touching it. If the pole or the person falls, she or he is out of the game. Needless to say, this causes slipped disks and other severe back problems to last the rest of your life.

Life

Sweet Company – Life

Italy 1976. One of my most popular records. It’s been played and played, accidentally dropped on filthy floors in clubs, people have spilled beer on it, djs have tried to steal it, and it always works.
