Urbanus - The Scratchin' Zwaantjes (1984, BE, scratch/fun) 
Wednesday, December 5, 2007, 06:21 PM - Music, - BE, English
Around 1983 scratching was a hype. Every artist who was old fashioned had now the chance to become modern again by making a scratch hit. You could expect a record to make this movement a bit ridiculous and at the same time making some money. Kris Kastaar did this, using samples of the popular Belgian comedian Urbanus, who also made the cover.

Transvolta - Disco-Computer (1978, BE, electronic/disco)

This was the prediction of the Groovebox.
Nice mechanic disco tune with vocoder.
Transvolta actually is Dan Lacksman of Belgium band Telex.
Telex represented Belgium for the 1980 Eurovision Song Contest and immediately the organisation made a problem about the use of the vocoder.
This fuzz caused Telex not to use it. Instead of that they made a very lame show, ridiculing the glitter acts (Telex used confetti out of their pockets)



B-side is an extension of the same song.
