“In a time when everyone who isn’t Crookers is claiming to be a “disco act”, there is an insurmountable wash of pretenders. Adelaide trio The Swiss, however, are a legit live disco band who’s existence is based on entirely on flavour and good times rather than the Cobra Snake and fitted caps.”
I was at Fopp (in Covent Garden) earlier today and I had one of those ‘I’m trying super hard not to dance to whatever it is they’re playing on the stereo’ moments, but I gave up and started doing a bit of shuffling around the DVD isle. After overcoming my shyness and asking the hot Fopp person what it was they were playing, I was told it was Disco Discharge: Mondo Disco. There’s some Boney M, Liquid Gold and Space alongside Andy Williams and Passengers. Disco works best when mixed properly, and this is definitely one of the better disco compilations around. None of the super famous numbers, but it’ll make your groove shake.
