Rock and roll litter.

In June last year, super chic designers Hervé and Paul of Cabine released Disko Cabine. A compilation filled with great tracks by some of their über talented acquaintances. This means nothing more than Felix Kubin, Stereo Total, Stereolab, Cobra Killer, Jeans Team, Elli Medeiros, Brigitte Fontaine, Jacno and many more all regrouped on this dream-come-true cd.

The track i am putting here is from the magnifique feline bass grinder Electronicat Another distorted take on rockabilly by the cat with Japanese vocals delivered by Koneko aka Miss Le Bomb.

Electronicat feat. Koneko - Keiren (awoooo mix)

You can count on me to play this fabulous track on Friday at Zoobizarre for another weekly Flaky Disco. DJ We Are Ortiz will sail with me behind the turntables for the occasion.

Indie booty.

It's the new trend. Vegans with vegetable oil fueled low riders riding across town with silk-screenened 24" and subwoofers that would scare Lil' Flip. Following this new tradition, Camouflage Nights gave grinding a new face on their Make Mine Records 7" released in late 2005. Those guys arise from Toronto and used the services of very famous Canadians (Buck 65 and Feist) on this 2 tracks single that made me dance for the past few weeks. You can check out the "Myspace meets American Apparel meets Britney-Spears-Slave-For-You-Video" videoclip here. But I strongly suggest you listen the track only, it does it better for me :

Sunday centaur.

Nothing makes me happier than disco that sounds like it was made for a science documentary. Just like Hipnosis, that's exactly what the Donna Laser Orchestra delivers. There's not much information on this early 80s italo disco outfit but when you close your eyes while listening to their sound... you can see yourself dancing on Saturn's rings with cyber centaurs and space vikings.

Now keep your eyes closed and imagine, emerging from the vapors, a silver David Bowie joining your crew. Of course, your cyber friends and you make a circle around him and he starts pulling the slickest disco moves.

Flaky Disco : Le Blog.

Ok. So we have been dancing for a while now and as you can see, we are getting pretty good at it. Flaky Disco is our club night at Zoobizarre, but we felt the urge to bring the good news outside of the dancefloor straight to your home. So like zillion other blogs, we're going to post music we like and make stupid comments and geeky references.

And now for a blast from the past, back in 1980 with a 15 year old Alexander Hacke. Before he discovered he could make music with random objects from the hardware store and joined Einststürzende Neubauten, Hacke started his career with P1/E.

P1/E - 49 Seconds Romance Disco Remix

This is definitely a classic of the NDW. You can get your hand on this rare gem with the amazing Berlin Super 80 DVD/CD compilation (there is also a vinyl version available).

And ... wawawou! This Friday January 13th 2006, Flaky Disco will have a very special guest : DJ We Are Ortiz from We Are Wolves will join me in Zoobizarre's dj booth. Of course, it's a rendez vous.
