First part of a new Space Disco show - but rather than the previous shows mostly covering the prime of late 70s Italo Disco and Space Disco, this goes into what happened next, aka Close Encounter of The Third Gender - Where No Man Has Gone Before Without A Whistle And a Glow Stick (And Some Poppers). Aliens, orgies, polysexual, glamorous, dramatic, synthetic, futuristic, camp, dayglow and pumping, what's not to like?
So it's disco, space disco, hi-nrg, electro, experimental funk hybrids into Chicago House - what kept the space beats (and space beast) alive into the 1980s. The first part covers mostly the disco and Hi-NRG era, with occasional forays into very early house music...
Both shows are dedicated to those we've lost: Ron Hardy (DJ at the Muzic Box, first person to play acid house), Sylvester (the Black Angel), Patrick Cowley (synth pioneer) and Arthur Russell (future jazz/funk/disco alien).
P.S. It was Giorgio Moroder's birthday yesterday - happy birthday Giorgio!

A really long show since I've not done one for a while, and a quite a ranty/angry/noisy one putting the world to wrong.
Photo is one I took near Staines, as part of my recent riverwalks which I've started for the year (well did until it started raining!) glitched around by me.
