Aural Exciters: My Boy Lollipop, Cristina's Drive My Car and Un PoupeƩ Qui fait Non, Kid Creole's In The Jungle, James White and The Blacks...that's kind of cool at the moment or what - are there any other hidden treasures from the vaults of the Ze label worth digging up/ordering from the Gemm or someplace, that would be good in a set aimed at 20-something mixed crowd? What about similar sounding stuff from other labels that have this artsy feeling to them?

Hi Jussi,

Ah... ZE, haven't thought of them for a while...
You gotta check out Don Armando's 2nd Avenue Rhumba Band's "Deputy of Love" as well as Aural Exciters' "Spooks in Space"...

Disco-on !

Yep, got the Spooks lp as well as the Deputy 12" - both good stuff. Ze was all about fashion/disco/new wave and that sound is essential to a good party isn't it, to demonstrate the music wasn't all about one seamless formula - not that there's anything wrong with an endless 128 -130 bpm medley of Cerrone, Costandinos and Midney, either, quite the contrary! But you know students, must do the avantgarde for that lot.

With August Darnell Jr. such a big part of this label, of course I love them. Simply fantastic. I have a lot of songs on their label, before they were released under a different label later on. Can you figure out which ones?

My favorite from ZE was:

"BUSTIN' OUT" - Nona Hendrix & Material

meet a few of my fav ZE Diva's




Image 'Jim on the move' and 'Fire' are great dancetracks, especially 'Fire' mixed by Tom Savarese. From the album 'Press Color'

Image

Lydia Lunch is one of my alltime favourite NYC NoWave babes....

Image

the album "Queen of Siam" is more cabaret/floorshow then dancefloor orientated but 'a cruise to the moon' is
a brilliant storming track that has always worked well at parties

Image


Image

not on ZE but equally brilliant NoWave danceclub-friendly tracks on this album...'electrique Sylvie' and 'juste besoin' are great for spinning at a party. Imagine the spasmic singing of David Byrne mixed with 'le french touch'...very funky and recommended; Modern Guy -une nouvelle vie. From France and on Dorian records

They got that SLUT look down don't they.
Those covers are intriguing, sexy and hot.
Are all those songs living up to the Pop art
covers? I expect they do!

they certainly do. The music on these albums is more poppy than really disco but danceable for sure. Lydia Lunch is definitely not pop but
fits snugly into the sort of set Jussi is referring to; hipster music that's good in a set aimed at 20-something mixed crowd
