Having just released their debit album Ragged Gold this week (25 June), Toronto duo The Magic - brothers Geordie and Evan Gordon, have been 'pulling some moves' to celebrate. And this is their sound track, a Playlist of weirdo disco. Have a listen via the player below, or the Youtube clips where music publishing has failed us...
Dee D Jackson - Automatic Lover
"This song is pretty corny, but I love the production, and the thought of rescuing Dee Dee from the cold, loveless future."
Claudja Barry - Boogie Woogie Dancing Shoes
This former member of Boney M, and Canadian born beauty struck gold with this disco masterpiece! Production by her husband Jürgen S. Korduletsch, the synth hook is infectious!"
Mistral - Starship 109
"Everything from the axe wielding Siberian Space Lords to the model landing craft make this the best video ever. I can't find anything about this group but they seem pretty Eastern European."
Donna Summer - I Feel Love
"Someone has put the audio from the album version under this clip, and it is out of sync, but you have to watch Donna's performance, it is mesmerizing and super sexy. She does the best Robot dance I have ever seen. RIP."
Space- Carry On, Turn Me On
"French Electro-Space band break into the disco mainstream here with vocals by Madeline Bell, a back-up singer for Donna Summer, whom she rips off a bit in the moaning solo. I want to replicate this set in my living room, minus the dancers."
Vanessa - Upside Down
"This blatant Olivia Newton-John Physical rip-off is 100 times sexier, I think due to Vanessa's voice and hair."
Arabesque - Hello Mr Monkey
"Hello Mr Monkey, you should have been a clown! Don't know what or who they are talking about but these German Super-babes slay it!"
Rockets - On The Road Sgain
"Somebody please tell me who these space-masters are? They take the Canned Heat/Floyd Jones blues classic and blast it into the future! I guess even spacemen get the blues."
Amii Stewart - Knock on Wood
"Sweet Eddie Floyd cover!"
Cherry Laine - Catch The Cat
"Riding high on Rasputin fever, Cherry Laine hits us with Catch The Cat. I was searching for innuendo in the lyrics, but I think it is really about a runaway cat."
Dee-Dee I Put a Spell on You
"Screaming Jay Hawkins minus the screaming, plus cocaine, bubbles and bodysuits equal this downtempo disco jam."
