"How Stupid Mr. Bates" is a groover of an instrumental from the 1982 'BRIMSTONE AND TREACLE' motion picture soundtrack. The film starred Sting, who composed most of the music for the soundtrack, earning himself the 1984 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for the 'BRIMSTONE AND TREACLE' title track.

More Sting and an edit of German composer, conductor, and keyboard player Eberhard Schoener's 1992 single "Why Don't You Answer ?" from Mindless Boogie 18: 'WHY DON'T YOU DUB ?' Passed right over this for the edit of "King Of Hollywood" by the Eagles but now I can't get the Rove Dogs Eberhard Schoener edit off my player.

Loving the oddly euphoric Krautrock-infused disco from the 'HyBoLT' EP by Cologne 4-piece Von Spar, out on Italic Records.

Hailing from the same quadrant of the cosmic-disco as Studio, Fontän are Johan Melin and Jesper Jarold who first got my attention last year with a gorgeous rework of "Early Morning" by A Mountain Of One. "... You Too" is from the duo's first full-length 'WINTERHWILA', and it's fifty-five minutes of just the sweetest psych-rock-disco I've heard since A Mountain Of One's 'INSTITUTE OF JOY'.

"Storm" is from the 2008 Popnoname 'SURROUNDED BY WEATHER' LP, also on Cologne's Italic Records, a label I've taken a great interest in lately. Italic's main interest 'is to give repetitive dance music the direction of pop.' Pop ? This is techno to break your heart.
