Football

299903947850633978Bruce Smeaton – Football

Recorded from a cult fave soundtrack (Australia, 1975). I’ve no idea what the film looks like. Most likely it has something to dada with football. Long term exposure to this ethereal masterpiece evokes slightly provocative images shot by that Bourdin Guy. My reel stops constantly at the girl into blue. This kind of soundscape is best enjoyed in the early morning hours when content is not the most defining factor in conversation. After countless hours of talk everything you hear and say becomes equally interesting and it’s even perfectly acceptable to drop a line from T.S. Eliot without sounding pretentious.

“At the still point of the turning world.
Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards;
At the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement.
And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered.
Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline.
Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”

Unfortunately all mornings come to an end and you must allow yourself to sleep before the next morning.

Nirvana

2998709786987697The Biddu Orchestra – Nirvana

Recent studies in experimental psychology indicate that exposing your aural senses to Biddu’s Nirvana can help you to slow your brain waves to reach the Theta state. Those who have slowed the record about 4% on their turntables have reached the desired state of mind much sooner than those listening at the original speed.

Lucifer

luciferCricha – Lucifer

Cricha – Lucifer (Instrumental)

Utterly questionable sleeve art usually raises expectations to the highest level. Drop the needle and your ears will be fulfilled with hard hitting drums, wicked synth bleeps, irresistible guitar riff and most likely lyrics to match (my Belgium is not good enough to understand the deeper meanings). Clips are pitched down a bit and you definitely need two copies to make it last long enough.

Christian d’Or & Vinnie Who

Christian d’Or & Vinnie Who – Bijoux

Coming on like a Helmut Newton photograph in sonic form the new Christian d’Or production is equal measures elegance and decadence. The sleazy meatrack beats and raunchy vocals of the previous release Hot Pants, credited to Disco Dick, have been replaced by smooth grooves and seductive, shivering voices. If the 3 minute rush of Hot Pants was all about the Back Room, this one takes us to The Boudoir with slow slidings of pleasure leading to sultry breaks and beyond. Perfect home listening as well as discothéque music. Play in your salon, contemplate the lyrics, then go out and Strip Nude For Your Dj.

Santo

Santo – Chief’s Death

Santo – Snake

I’ve been playing the Snake track from ´82 for quite some time and wondered who this Santo guy is. Is he American? The sound is not quite American but the record is. It wasn’t before i got the Chiefs Dead on the Italian Cigogna label I (think) I solved the puzzle. He’s Italian-American and was the same guy who made the very famous sleepwalk track with his partner Johnny. Anyway he knows how to work that Hawaiian guitar sound and did an excellent job with these two disco tracks. The Chief’s Death track is from the ’79 Apocalypse Now movie.

La Ragazzina

la ragazzina

 

Immense Nico Fidenco cult soundtrack for the Mario Imperoli 1974 movie “La Ragazzina”. The very first movie starring her beautiness Gloria Guida. These are the main songs of the soundtrack, an incredibly rare and pricey CAM LP, but there was also an (even rarer) 45, with these two tracks. Possibly these are non-disco tracks, but you can foresee  some elements later to be used in a lot of disco productions.

Burano and his Gypsie Caravan – Good Time Girl

When this girl enter the room everyone will have a good time. Lots of sound bending and other kinds of synth freakout on this French moog monster from ’73.
