Disco Students – S/T 7″

What the fuck shall I write? I’m not a reviewer. I listen to music and I play music. Reviewer is someone who listen to music and make up words that most of the time fail to describe the music or to get you and idea of how it sounds. There’s very very few times I’ve encountered a review that I’ve read then bought the record and agreed that “yeah I know what you mean”. 

Here’s Disco Students. South Africa House is great. Kafkaesque is great. They got a sound of their own. A member later went on to play bass in Marillion. Disco Students have a website: http://www.discostudents.com. You click the link. It will open a new window. Click the News section to read some funny shit about a compilation they where on: “The portents looked promising: the album was favourably reviewed in Sounds and they were promised a review in NME. But when they went up to the NME offices with a couple of thugs hired from the Ugly Model Agency, and confronted Tony Parsons, they freaked, failed to see the funny side, and the LP was subsequently blackballed! (clearly, the Spirit of Punk was too much for the fearless NME!!).
