Product description

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
