BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
The Gay Club scene has always been heavily linked with the development of electronic, dance music and independent music making/distribution. “Male Stripper” by Man 2 Man (feat Man Parrish) was a small club hit that went huge back in 1986! Hi-NRG was the chosen genre and although hailing from New York the record was put out in England on Bolts records. The band was originally 2 brothers, Miki and Paul Zone. Miki died suddenly of spinal meningitis on New Years Eve 1986. After Miki’s death, Paul changed the name of the group to Man To Man. Paul continued recording, and “Energy Is Eurobeat” was a minor hit. On the B – side you get a cover of Grace Jones’s “I Need A Man” and a remix of “Male Stripper,” amusingly tagged, “A Julie Batten Bitchy Production recorded in her bedroom on a teasmaid”.
