Stil: EBM, Italo disco
Label: Dark Star
B1 Disco, Baby, Sunshine
I first came in contact with Spartak during a drive from Gothenburg to Örebro. Me and a friend were on our way to a gig, and had forgotten to bring any music with us. Thankfully we picked up another friend halfways that brought some CD:s with him. One of the CD:s we were listening to was swiss band Spartak, and theiralbum Survival of the fittest.
The album had some cool electronic music, though it was musically very schizofrenic, with styles ranging from EBM to disco to electronic folk music. One of the songs that stuck in my memory was the song Downwards. So I was really pleased when I found that one on vinyl.
This 12" maxi is a great reduction of the album. Downwards is the pounding EBM song and Disco, Baby, Sunshine represents the (italo) disco. The song i also also a fun homage to Donna Summers / Giorgio Moroders classic I feel love. Volkstanz is a mostly weird, with it's fiddles and lyrics in... finnish???
I got my copy through Discogs, and paid 5.56 €.
