Black Devil : Disco Club EP

The hottest new sound of, um, 1978

In a great week for acts whose names start with Black - is Black the new The? - this bizarre disco epic, one of the most talked-about records in ages, would've been Single Of The Week had it not originally come out in 1978 on a tiny French label. Rescued from obscurity by [a][/a]'s Rephlex crew - one of whom found it in a car boot sale for 20p - and destined for the charts, 'Disco Club' is actually four richly melodic avant-funk tracks that bleed into one another, backed by a succulent remix by Luke Vibert in his Kerrier District guise. Had 'Timing, Forget The Timing' and 'One To Choose' been written yesterday they'd be considered cutting-edge, but the fact that these deliciously experimental oddities were made way back when by two French sound scientists only adds to their unique, seductive

charm.
