Fittingly, clubs like New York's Paradise Garage form the inspiration for Disco (Not Disco), a line-up of bizarre crossover dance records from the city's halcyon past. Back in the late 1970s, the Garage's much-loved DJ, Larry Levan, was notoriously open in his tastes, thinking nothing of mixing rock, reggae and disco into one blistering soundscape. Here, the spirit of that eclecticism lives on, uniting leftfield funk cuts with a number of unholy period pieces. When you consider that Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice" opens this collection, be prepared to digest all manner of discofied esoterica; from the unlikely Sly & Robbie-produced "Spasticus/Autisticus" by Ian Dury through to Steve Miller Band's (yep, you read it right) "Macho City". Post-punk of course, everyone wanted a bite of the dance-floor cherry and there are some choice examples here from a period when the unlikeliest acts got busy with the hi-hats and turned up the bass.--Paul Tierney

disco not disco contains some of the true New York underground disco classics. The record is put together by joey negro and sean p. Straight away on the first track we have no other then Yoko Ono, making almost beautiful noise along side with some pretty funky beats. The record contains a number of truly wicked tunes includings loose joints - tell you (today), and ian dury - Spasticus autisticus. Within the hour you will be truly converted to DISCO, but with not a mention of abba. Also worth checking out are the sleeve notes, an intresting piece of underground disco history. This is record must be heard 6 disco stars....

If you're down with the history of popular dance music, this is a pretty seminal collection of some of the oddities and classics that made their way into deejay record crates back in the day; it's almost worth the price alone to hear Liquid Liquid's "Cavern" again - the bassline launched a million feet at Danceteria and the Peppermint Lounge (this is post-Studio 54 and pre-Area, kids), and spawned imitators aplenty. And who would've imagined that Steve Miller would've set bodies movin'?! Put this one on at your next party and freak some heads with your all-knowing koolness!
