einzelgaenger moroder

Great to learn that Giorgio (Hansjörg) Moroder will be awarded for his soundtrack work at the next Ghent film festival; Herr Moroder will receive the World Soundtrack Lifetime Achievement Award 2011 on 2011-10-22. The night before, there will be a Moroder party at the Vooruit (organised by Goodlife & avenue L). Let’s hope der Moroder will come and perform Chasein a similar way as he did on German (ARD) tv in 1979:

eros & psychedelic vinyls


Some saucy leftovers from the previous post just to bring a great series of books to your attention that bear wonderful faux anglais titles that only the French can come up with (cf. how they spelt pin’s back in the nineties) … I’m pretty sure the Ohio Players will be featured in Eros vinylsbut I wonder whether that particular volume has a raunchy Eurodisco sleeves section too … So far, the Collection musiqueby éditions Stéphane Bachès also includes books on vinyls yéyé, pochettes chanson française, bande dessinée (BD) or comics style sleeves, prog gatefolds, mainstream rock lp covers, and psychedelic psleeves. (There’s been a whole number of books on that topic before, of uneven quality, most notably theClassic Album Covers Of The 60sby Storm Thorgersson of Hipgnosis.)
