captain torkive - gayrock (disco mix 12").mp3

killer and ultra rare pre-electronic italo record from 1980 mixed by tony carrasco (klein & m.b.o., plastic mode, moonbase...) with semi talking/semi-singing piriceless lyric parts and some glam ascendancies. the singer tried to describe the glam-era in his way with an funny heavy italian/english accent, unbelievable. ok so i hope, you belong to gayrock, gayrock, gayrock!

note: pic is from the 7" not from my 12".


the saucer people hat gesagt…

Man, I nearly fell off my chair when I heard this! You have given my jaded, cyncial heart a new lease of life, this is freakin' bonkers Italo genius with shades of an almost French derangement a la JP Massiera...contender for post of the year me thinks not only for the song but the rarity factor.

There is not even a Discogs entry for this 12 Inch disco mix! Only the 7 Inch makes it with no copies for sale with only three owning it and five having it - makes me think this is one of those closely guarded DJ weapons that are guarded closely but every now and then one escapes into wider consciouness....better look out for a copy before Dallum goes and sticks it in a mix....or am I too late ;)

PS> tell us about the flipside, just the title "Cupsicum Jam" alone makes me want to grow a beard, what were Tony Carrasco (no-one mentioned Moonbase!) & Valerio Liboni taking that day!?

Spill the beans about 'Cupsicum Jam'! Is it any good?!

Also shame on all the people who downloaded this uber-rarity without leaving so much as a thank-you...when you weigh all the time and effort it took to bring you this MP3 against the fact all you have to do is sit in your chair and press download, a simple freakin' thank you doesn't seem too much does it?
