Disco Beach Party 2 (cheesy!)



So I got to post what I find in the bin, right? I was sensitive that maybe people were thinking I was on some new rave 90's come back bandwagon. So maybe I am, but I still posted this cassette because the absolute biggest without question bold caps you can't debate theme of now (and maybe the last 10 years) is IRONY! Feel free to contradict me, but I have an argument for everyone. It's all irony now. Along with some surrealism.

The very bad but amusing N-N-Nineteen Not Out was apparently the first project of Rory Bremner, parodying, of course, the excellent Nineteen by Paul Hardcastle which perhaps took itself a tad seriously being before the era of irony. My favorite track on here is The Clapping Song. And I almost did not include The Tweets in this post because even I do find it very annoying.

Side A

1 - The Tweets - Birdie Song
2 - Shirley Ellis - The Clapping Song
3 - Divine - Twistin' the Night Away
4 - Rustie Lee - My Toot Toot
5 - Goombay Dance Band - Seven Tears
6 - Sylvia - Viva Espana
7 - Jonathan King - Una Paloma Blanca
8 - The Commentators - N-N-Nineteen Not Out

Side B

1 - Evelyn Thomas - High Energy
2 - David Christie - Saddle Up
3 - Len Barry - 1-2-3
4 - Racey - Some Girls
5 - Anita Ward - Ring My Bell
6 - Imagination - Body Talk
7 - Kelly Marie - Feels Like I'm In Love

Dalston - 'nuff respect by the way....

I can't believe that no-one has spotted the truly frightening thing about this post - this is Disco Beach Party 2. That means there was a Disco Beach Party 1, and someone allowed a second one to happen. And how on earth did Racey make it on there? They seem to be the antithesis of the three words, "Disco", "Beach" and "Party". Er....discuss.

Tracklisting from hell!

(I've just downloaded 3 tracks, have another on vinyl and another on CD - my taste in music must be shit. Or wuld I get away with 'eclectic'?)

Sorry for the speedy follow-up comment, but ... listen to Evelyn Thomas's High Energy - one of the tracks I downloaded to listen to for old time's sake - and tell me this wasn't an influence on New Order's Blue Monday (they were big fans of Hi-NRG!)
