Retro to retro

Picture the scene: you're stepping out in black plimsolls, white terry towelling socks and super faded skinny jeans. You're wearing a tight white tee with a small faded denim jacket, hoodie and a navvy's woollen hat. Your hair is buzz cut to a number one, short back 'n' sides and with a wavy quiff tucked onto the hat save for a sexy kiss curl poking out. It's the early 80s and your world smells of Kouros aftershave and Pickled Onion Monster Munch.

With the marvelous Ashes to Ashes on TV (see pic above and vid below) and analogue synths being de rigeur, everything's gone retro (again) for a few weeks and I luvs it.

I Lust U - Neon Neon
- Gruff Rhys (CandyLion album) and dance meister Boom Bip.

Divine - Sebastian Tellier (zShare)
- The French Eurovision entry (!!) from the house music leg end (produced by a Daft Punk).

Number One - Pacific! (zShare)
- See my previous post about these Swedish hipsters.

Pump - Palermo Disko Machine (zShare)
- From the I Ragazzi dell 1982 EP from last year. Some bumping nonsense from drug-fucked Sicilians "And I can't hold myself when the DJ's pumping up the volume like THIS!"

Don't Go (12" Mix) - Yazoo (zShare)
- The genuine article.

BONZA post here mister. I love that Sebastian Tellier track; I'm guessing you were as surprised as I that it's representing France in EV too eh? It's all a little bit cool really.
