The Creatures – Solar Eclipse (Disco Mix) (Italy 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 21st August 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Great American Eclipse 2014

Today in North America we celebrate a rare astronomical event the Total Solar Eclipse. This is the First Total Solar Eclipse in USA Since 1979. This is the first total eclipse of the Sun visible from the contiguous United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) since February 26, 1979. The last time a total eclipse was visible from coast to coast was on June 8, 1918.. As many Americans put on their eclipse glasses or make home-made viewing stations I thought it would be fun to post this for those who will make this cosmic celebration an event. If the eclipse bug has truly bitten you, then you won’t be able to wait until the next North American total solar eclipse in 2024.

 

“Solar Eclipse” is song by Italian band The Creatures not to ne confused with the British band of the same name. The Italo Disco band is one of the lost meteors of the 1980s. The Creatures consists of members Mario Flores and Maurizio Sangineto. “Solar Eclipse” was taken from the album “Illusion” released in 1985.

Pet Shop Boys – Paninaro (Italy 12″ Ltd. Edition)

Posted by DjPaulT on 1st February 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

Originally posted September 25, 2012

Limited Edition Italy-only 12″. 5000 copies exist.

“Paninaro” is a song by English synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. Originally a B-side to the 1986 single “Suburbia”, it was released as a limited-edition single in Italy during the same year. “Paninaro” was produced by the band themselves, and is the first track which features Chris Lowe on lead vocals, although he speaks the lyrics, rather than sings them.

While all 7″ and 12″ releases of “Suburbia” contained only the 7″ version of “Paninaro”, the 12″ version was featured on “Disco: The Remix Album”. Another remix by Ian Levine was done, but only appears as the second track from the Italian 12″ single.

“Paninaro” was written entirely by Chris Lowe, and was originally based on an idea brought forth by Tom Watkins, who later removed himself from the project. The Paninari is the name of a 1980s Italian youth subculture known as the paninari; derived from the word panino, Italian for sandwich, they were known for congregating in restaurants serving sandwiches and in the first US-style fast food restaurants, as well as their preference for designer clothing and 1980s pop music such as the New Romantic music of Duran Duran. Neil Tennant has said that they were drawn to the concept due to having shared those preferences.

The band wanted to remove Versace from the lyrics because Vercase was not really a designer favoured by the Paninari, but it was edited out of every version except the 12″

There was in fact a video shot for ‘Paninaro’, even though it wasn’t a bonafide single. It featured shots taken around Milan and fed through a digital imaging processor to give it a pixelated feel. It was released originally on the “Television” video compilation and again on the “Pop Art” DVD.

“Paninaro” was remixed and released a second time in 1995 as “Paninaro 95” in conjunction with the b-sides compilation “Alternative”.
