Disco Death

This single is a perfect representation of the Post-Punk-Nu-Disco era of the late 70's and early 80's. Here, ex-Rotten John Lydon and his Public Image Limited band turn disco patterns into punky distorded funk

P.I.L. - Death Disco

and their video from Top Of The Pops

and this track is a cover track of Public Image Limited's "Death Disco". The New Beat version has strong & slower beats. This belgian electronic mood has also basslines of TB 303 and weird effects. The original one had elements of disco bass and punk rock, with lyrics like "Seen it in your eyes", a paradox about what the eyes show and the words cannot say...

Arbeid Adelt! - Disco Death

and here's a live version of the same song
