this is the legendary machine 'there but for the grace of god go i'- well known and loved by all the Legendary Children. nearly 3 decades on( released in 1979) it is still instantly recognizable on a dance floor of those who have any sense of dance music and it's history and close association with teh ghey.
kid creole et al were staples of the 70's/80s new york music scene-darnell produced miss kitten precursor cristina ('is that all there is' and 'disco clone'. siouxsie used the former - playing cristina's banned version at the end of all her shows in the later half of the 90's.). they appear as oddly named disco bands here and there- my very favorite being don armando's 2nd avenue rhumba band- "deputy of love". if you don't know if you've got teh ghey or not, you do if you like this song-( and saturday night fever had horrible music that pales next to real disco like deputy of love but it is still a good film.)(" are you gonna be a nice girl... or a pig?")
endicott by kid creole. i am always surprised at the people who know and love this song. darnell definitely has his minnie the moocher moves down. that's andy hernandez in the kiddie pool.
