4Ever Songs: Bee Gees “You Should Be Dancing”

You Should Be Dancing” is a song by the Bee Gees, from the album Children of the World, released in 1976. It hit No. 1 for one week on the American Billboard  and in September the same year, reached No. 5 on the U.K. Singles Charts. It is also one of six songs performed by the Bee Gees included in the Saturday Night Fever movie soundtrack which came out a year later.

Best covers: Tropical Fuck Storm ‘Stayin’ Alive’

A year ago, Tropical Fuck Storm have teased fans with an acerbic drip-feed of 7” singles, cover tracks and unhinged music videos, culminating in their recently released debut album A Laughing Death in Meatspace. TFS is a phoenix of sorts; rising from the ashes of The Drones to form a supergroup consisting of Gareth Liddiard (The Drones), Fiona Kitschin (The Drones), Erica Dunn (Mod Con, Harmony) and Lauren Hammel (High Tension).

One of this covers is Bee Gees’ ‘Stayin’ Alive’. With tongues firmly in cheeks, ‘Stayin’ Alive’ works as a cheeky reflection of the internet’s world wide wreckage depicted in ‘Rubber Bullies’ as the embattled narrator of ‘Stayin’ Alive’ struggles to find purpose in a world constantly tasered by a digital stream of moral pollution.

Hit of the week: Bangkok “Maya Girls”

Bangkok és la capital de Tailanda, però d’ençà fa poc és també el nom d’una banda francesa que acaba de publicar el seu disc de debut “Jungle of Mania”. Aquest trio traspua talent i originalitat per tot arreu. Barthélémy i Melchior passaren la seva infantesa recorrent el món com membres d’un cor i com solistes d’òpera. Antoine és un amant de les sonoritats africanes. El seu so és molt eclèctic i ells reconeixen influències que van des de Pink Floyd als Bee Gees i de Supertramp a l’E.L.O. El seu primer vídeo “Maya Girls” ha estat rodat a Nàpols, una de les poques ciutats que, segons ells, es manté pura.
