Kubuki Disco!  

Not much to say other than that I am glad this exists. This is a very campy and very driving disco tune that was produced by cheesemeister Michael Lloyd. Lifted from the internet:
"*(Mitsuyo "Mie" Nemoto, Keko "Kei" Masuda) Known as "Pink Lady", these two female Japanese rock singers were introduced to American television via this comedy variety hour [Pink Lady and Jeff]. Mie & Kei may have been popular in Japan, but their U.S. debut quickly fizzled out. One reason the series disappeared: the stars spoke very little English and had to be guided through the program sketches by American comedian Jeff Altman."

    I'm so down you're down with this. I'm a big fan of Japanese music and disco, and this happens to be Pink Lady's only successful combination of the two (in my opinion). I picked up the 12" with the extended mix and try to play it out as much as possible, but it's usually too fast to bring in the mix...

    Anyway, in case you didn't already know, Pink Lady are like one of the most popular female duos in Japanese pop history.....and most of their music is awful. But thanks for posting this gem!

    Hello, Beat Electric... could you post "Deeply" from this album? I know it's a soundtrack for a movie called "Happy". Thanks in advance!!
