Strut Records was there first. ‘Disco Not Disco’ preceded the punk funk explosion by a good two years.” Resident Advisor. As part of the label’s 20th Anniversary, Strut present the first repress of the seminal ‘Disco Not Disco’ compilation since its original release in 2000, compiled by Joey Negro and Sean P. Forward-thinking and open-minded New York clubs like Paradise Garage and The Loft form the inspiration for the album as rock, reggae and disco merge into one blistering soundscape. Tracks include Yoko Ono's paranoid ‘Walking On Thin Ice’, Arthur Russell outings as Dinosaur and Loose Joints and the Sly & Robbie-produced ‘Spasticus Autisticus’ by Ian Dury through to Steve Miller Band's epic ‘Macho City’. A perfect snapshot of a period when the unlikeliest acts got busy with the hi-hats and turned up the bass.
