Duracel, Den Haag
The discourse around Italo disco has sadly never done any kind of justice to the music itself. That said, having seen the Guardian carry a typically woeful feature on the essential online music station Intergalactic FM today, I had a ferret around the IFM site looking for something worth reading. This list, "Italo Hammers: 10 Bad-Boy Gems of Italian Disco" is a useful article for any neophytes looking for a way in to the genre. Maybe mainstream music journalists might think to research something similar for themselves in the future.
These related photos are great too, if you enjoy looking at guys surrounded by keyboards and records.
