Fall in Berlin

Berlin was cold and foggy, but it was good to hang out with friends, listen to some music, and eat out all the time.

Cosmique

Been buying lots of records lately, mostly from the web (thanks discogs, for emptying my wallet), and also brought lots back from San Francisco. Working from home, listening to banging disco, that’s what life is all about!

Bumblebee Unlimited – Space Shuttle Ride

San Francisco has been banging! And busy!
Enjoying the last leg of my little work-ation, and so far it’s been great. Loving the weather (at least 20°C every day), the people (hi Airbnb HQ!), the food (did anyone say Bi-rite ice cream?).
Coming back with a bag full of records, woo-hoo!

Black Devil Disco Club – I Regret The Flower Power

Drum Roll


Hello weekend!
We are off to Bordeaux and Arcachon for the next 10 days and it should be banging. Can’t wait for oysters and white wine dinners.

It was 2003

That year I took kind of a break in my studies and decided to fuck everything off and go to NYC. Nah not really, I wasn’t that wild.
I had to organise a internship for my BA and thought that the Brooklyn Museum would be much cooler than some obscure London gallery.

So I went. And stayed a little bit less than 3 months. I didn’t know a single soul there so it was like a real adventure and I was quite content to be on my own to be honest.
Sometimes I love that, the feeling of being in a completely foreing city where you know absolutely no-one, and no-one knows you.

Anyway it was fun, I went to a lot of gigs, (mostly by blagging my way into them): LCD Soundsystem, Peaches, Rapture, Les Savy Fav etc…
It was already the sunset of electroclash and I remember dancing at Lux with Larry Tee djing to an empty room.

Me at 20, looking fresh

The two records that stuck with this period for me are the Gravy Train and Numbers albums. Both of them are actually pieces of shit when you think about it, but I listened to them so much on my discman (gee what does that even look like?) that I still hold a dear affection for them.
Although the Numbers one is maybe a tad superior in quality, and technically they don’t sound the same at all, both have stupid lyrics, crazy drums and heavy keyboards, and damn I actually love that combo.
Because the choreographies and outfits were so insane, at the time I would have sold mother and father to be an extra member of Gravy Train.

“A nectar and tonic? Make it double!”

Kinda obsessed with these reworks of the Bumblebee Unlimited’s “Ladybug”. Love the John Morales one.

Kinda Random but Totally Cult in My Record Collection #1

….
Los Microwaves “Life After Breakfast”

I came upon this record a bit out of the blue when it was recommended to me by my favourite ebay seller (a coldwave, synth, disco genius!) and since then I’ve loved it, it’s so crazy and stupid but so good at the same time. Enjoy.
