Yeah, the reason i said i'll have to wait, is because i am operating on some of the slowest internet in greater Australia (and if you live here, you know that this is amazingly slow).
What Glass Candy record/s is/are good?
I'll try and find some links now and post them up here, but it will take a few minutes.
Out of the Italo Disco which i've listened to (and i haven't listened to a whole lot) the stuff i like the most would be from:
There are a lot of single tracks but random acts that i have on my comp that i dig also, once i have some speed up, i can probably upload a compilation of them.
The only reason i got into Alexander Robotnick was because i went to see him live when he randomly came here. A friend of mine got into a heated electro argument with some faggit electro nerd that night, which ended in electro violence.
A current group who recently released an album who capture the Italo Disco vibe are Fare Soldi. I'll post some stuff of theirs in a second.
Italo Disco, i think, is often too over the top and ridiculous for some people.
Personally, it doesn't bother me, but i can see how the vocals especially can seem really cheesy.
For instance, Modern Talking's 'You're My Heart, You're My Soul' is one of my favourite Italo tracks, but i can definitely understand why some people would dismiss it as a novelty track.
uh...i need some more of that and the cube and kano stuff whenever it's convenient
i owe you rep on the marathon youtube post
as far as glass candy, the best tracks that i've heard are from the 'beat box' album...they even have a cover of kraftwerk's 'computer love' that of course doesn't compare favorably to the original, but it's fairly nice imo
