Options February 26, 2020: Hi-Waisted Modernists #065 - The New Saturday Night


On June 7th 1976 journalist Nik Cohn wrote a piece called "Tribal Rites for the New Saturday Night" for New York magazine - a piece that became the "Saturday Night Fever". On today's Hi-Waisted Modernists with DJ GeorgyGirl we crank up the library disco tunes and tell the original story. You should be dancing. Yeah.

3 pm to 4 pm EST/8 pm to 9 pm GMT

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh, I know all about that working from home gig ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hopefully everyone is strutting their stuff out there on the dancefloor. Yowza! Yowza! Yowza! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm notsoKWYET:

I'm dancing in my seat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm notsoKWYET:

This track has a bit of the vibe of the Japanese City Pop i've been listening to lately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The good old chair bop :-)
Avatar 3:09pm worldsworstrecords:

How are you, NSK? All good?

The Abramo Allione catalogue is stunning, it really is :-)
Avatar 3:12pm Martinibomb:

@notsoKWYET I love all that J city pop stuff -- Tatsuro Yamashita etc... Ursula 1000 also has a taste for that here as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK - there's an old LHT on Mixcloud where I played a bunch of the J-Funk stuff from the early 80s :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm notsoKWYET:

Sorry... Canada... it's legal here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

When in any country other than the UK!!! I could do with a jazz ciggie ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's a total of 8 stunning albums in today's show
Avatar 3:17pm worldsworstrecords:

Bugger that... I'm off to get a cup of tea ;-)
Avatar 3:17pm Sem:

Along for some high-wasted excitement, but it seems notsoKWYET beat me to the punch(bow.)
Hiya, djGG, and modernists, revisionists, vivasectionists, and just plain schists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Sem! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Although I suppose if we were getting into the atmosphere of today's theme we'd be disappearing to the loo and rolling up money at this point. LOL.
Avatar 3:19pm Mr Fab:

Dang, this is better than a lot of "real" disco.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - good, isn't it? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've been planning this show for a while and looking forward to it mightily! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm notsoKWYET:

Brian Bennett rules...such a tasteful drummer, among other things
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK - agreed! :-)
Avatar 3:24pm worldsworstrecords:

I'll second that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm notsoKWYET:

Daryl... will you second that emotion?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm notsoKWYET:

Smokey Robinson tix went on sale today for Toronto JAzz Festival
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm notsoKWYET:

I just don't think I can shell out $120 or it....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

$120????? He'd need to come to my house for that
Avatar 3:26pm worldsworstrecords:

Lol!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

AND make me a cup of tea lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm notsoKWYET:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm notsoKWYET:

that one bass line was kinda like I feel love but with crazy drumming over top of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Session men knew their onions, that's for sure :-)
Avatar 3:29pm worldsworstrecords:

...ans session women ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@WWR - I have no tea! The service around here is appalling today! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@WWR - and session women :-)
Avatar 3:29pm worldsworstrecords:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

God, I love this music :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm notsoKWYET:

GG - you remember I told you met someone on the bus in Toronto who was looking through records and he was a big fan of your show? I went to this chill vinyl night last night, and he was just going on about Sheena's Jungle Room
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@NSK - fabulous!!! I was so pleased when you told me that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm notsoKWYET:

He's apparently a big fan of the show Cannibal Stew
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

He clearly has excellent taste ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm notsoKWYET:

He played Les Baxter's Jewerls of The Sea to a group of young kids... so yea... good taste lol
Avatar 3:39pm Mr Fab:

a toy piano on that last one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - was it? That's bloody brilliant :-)
Avatar 3:42pm worldsworstrecords:

Another cracker of a show, GG... truly inspired
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - thank you, lovely. That means so much to me coming from you :-) xx
Avatar 3:42pm Domenic:

Guess were all listening to Disco for Lent!
Avatar 3:43pm worldsworstrecords:

:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I apologise profoundly and unreservedly to any of my lovely Modernists who hail from the New York area for my shocking attempt at an accent ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Dom - it's always disco time! :-)
Avatar 3:43pm Mr Fab:

@notsoKWYET that's cool about our big fan in Toronto. Did you get his name? Does he hang on the chat? Come out, Toronto fan, wherever you are!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm notsoKWYET:

i don't think he chats but listens a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I believe he knows Otis as well :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm notsoKWYET:

he had won an auction of 45s and had triple wide box on the bus --- going through them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

…music to do my taxes by…
Avatar 3:46pm Sem:

I still find the odd shirt w/ eye-poking long and pointy collars. Oh, the 70s, a decade of questionable men's apparel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Granny!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Sem - you should ask Otis about his leisure suit collection ;-)
Avatar 3:48pm Mr Fab:

yeah Sem, they say fashions come and go, but leisure suits have never, WILL never come back.
Avatar 3:48pm Sem:

Pictures, he must show pictures!
Avatar 3:49pm Mr Fab:

Sounds like a button or bumper sticker: "Ask Me About My Leisure Suit Collection."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LOL!
Avatar 3:51pm Sem:

Leisure suits, rumpus rooms, recreational drugs, a regular Dionysian romp. And let us not forget the sexual revolution...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Martinibomb is on after me with Medium Cool!
www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Sem - The 'Lude Years :-)
Avatar 3:54pm Sem:

Haha, if only we had better memories about the lewd years, how mortified would one be?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm notsoKWYET:

I vote for a 'only songs led by soprano sax' show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And the best part about Nick Cohn's article? Not a single word of it was true. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

He'd just arrived from the UK, was tasked to write an article about the disco scene about which he knew nothing, so wrote about Northern Soul music (which he did know) and replaced the words "northern soul" with "disco". And the rest is history ;-)
Avatar 3:57pm worldsworstrecords:

That's nuts, isnt it?
Avatar 3:57pm Martinibomb:

Thanks fo the link post you always beat me to it every time GG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you all for listening! Hope you've had fun :-)
I'll be back on Friday with a four hour Flange special! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@WWR - he was terrified of getting fired ;-)
@MB - Quick Draw Georgy! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Just printed out my 2019 WFMU tax receipt and am ready to empty my wallet into this bottomless pit of freeform nonsense once more!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):
