Various : No Disco
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a robot. Playing cowbell...
Italian collective SHADO calls it 'No Disco' and this compilation illustrates how modern dancefloor adventurers like !!! and Midnight Mike share an avant-garde aesthetic with an earlier generation of post-punk disco divas such as Lizzy Mercier Descloux and, erm, Foetus. They're not the first to put together a compilation like this, of course, but 'No Disco' is a cut above.
