    I play Fehlfarben - Ein Jahr (es geht voran) almost every time and it works great. I'd love more stuff like that. I'm pretty sure it's the disco BWOO that does it.

    I love this song and video but it clears the floor. I'm sure they must have better danceable songs.

    The Disco Not Disco compilations might also be helpful in sussing out some key tracks, as a starting point.

    I feel like a lot of this stuff (especially at the fringes of the genre) has the potential to be floor-clearing if not handled just so.

    Another obvious one:

    Age of Chance - Kiss

    Sorry, but they don't allow embedding for this clip.

    A lot of this kind of stuff is getting the re-edit treatment at the moment so it's worth checking new release disco/edit at Juno or where ever.


  • i didn't realize that the material joint has been posted earlier. sorry.

    Let Loose is a crazy tune!
    Played it out a few years ago, last tune of the night. Sounded crazy in a club.
    Sadly the doormen had thrown all customers out of the dance floor area at that point.

    That Set the Tone stuff is pretty great; I was not aware of it before!

    More Byrne-related stuff:

    Yeah, My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts ought to be a post-punk set text. Incredible record, and an enormous musical influence on the band I was in at the time.

    Since it's bump-a-favourite-thread day, some additional reading;

    OMG. I just typed "post punk" into the search function and this was the first thread. IN the old forum I would have got every thread that contains the letter "p" of some random shit.

    yeah. and the Our Lips are Sealed 12" has a great remix sung in Urdu.

    This one was actually reissued on vinyl recently, so you won't have to drop a mint to get a hold of it.

    I'm kind of wondering if some of Suicide's stuff like "Diamonds, Fur Coat, Champagne" might work at a night like this. Might be worth a shot.

    12" version of this is great and easy to find. (needs to be pitched up a little IMO)

    Though it's not really in the same genre, this thread reminded me of this one:

    I used to listen to this all the time, around the same time when I was big into punk/hardcore, etc. Couldn't find the flipside on Youtube, which is a shame.
