Various Artists -Sit On This / No Smoking On The Moon / Magicke [Massive reissue !!
Massive reissue of these signature and much loved weirdo, disco-not-disco (but disco) cut-up cuts from the Bastedos camp. The likes of Young Marco, Horse Meat Disco, Soul Clap and Wax'o Paradiso have all been rinsing this EP, sky rocketing Discogs prices well up to £75 a piece. The painstaking editing for these bombs comes from Bastedos themselves, A.M. and Last Waltz. Side A brings us 'Sit On This', a rolling, chugging, clapping, marimba-ing (!) disco workout in the vein of Material, edited by Bastedos. It pulls you along through a peaky peak time vocal, a sexed up guitar break, and some chopped-up chanting, all the way to its inevitable hands in the air Piano finale. Side B first provides us with AM's edit, 'No Smoking On The Moon' and it's celestial choral stylings. Soft synths and tough bass play with each other beneath B-Movie FX and ecclesiastic organs. The sound of a space age disco cult... from the past. Finishing off the record is Last Waltz's 'Magicke', the extended soundtrack to the opening of the gates of hell. Shuffling go-go perc, syncopated drums and fuzzed out chords play out under Satan's saxophone, before giving way to a damned (damned fuzzy that is) guitar, sounding out the call of Cthulu.
