For the first time in quite a while I'm really enjoying my nights out in Sydney! This Friday the 30th is going to be amazing - Picnic are taking over La Campana/GOODGOD to host Dicky Trisco, the marvelous man behind Disco Deviance, resident at Autodisco, and co-runner of Maxi Discs with Pete Herbert. Here are the deets. So excited for this!! I've got a few double passes to dish out, so if you're keen to come along just email a response to one of these brain benders:
1. Using 1000 words or less please give a comprehensive explanation of the theory of imaginary time, popularised by Stephen Hawking, without using the letters 'e' or 's'.
2. I don't care, just give me your name and you will probably win.
OK COOL. Got some stunners to post now, I highly recommend grabbing all these records if you can! Eric Duncan's C.O.M.B.I. edits series have all been sensational and this latest one is no exception. This one is ultra proper powerful dancing disco - can anyone help me with the original? Would love to know what it is. Lots of quality stomping to be done to this record.

Picked up this incredible Bim Marx & Master Khan white label as well: 4 tracks of superb edits, I really can't recommend getting this record enough! This one is groovy spring disco, soulful and full of motivational messages to help remind you on the dancefloor that 'you gotta be strong' and everything will be ok. Very reassuring, thank you anonymous disco artist.

This classic song totally rules. This version recently got released on East End Music. Patrick Adams is a god. This remix appears to have made very few changes to the original. That is all.

I only bought this Beatconductor 12 for his edit of Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2 but ended up enjoying the B-sides even more. The vocals in this song are just so totally irresistible, I doubt I've ever heard better bop shoowup-ing in my life. I guess without them the song would be quite tedious but I seriously can't stop tapping my feet the whole way through this tune. The Floyd edit is great too, this single is a definite winner.
