Escort: In Studio

Friday, March 14, 2014

For years, disco has suffered from a bit of a bad rap. But a few bands have lately taken the glitter and four-on-the-floor beat and turned it into a full scale revival. Brooklyn’s 15+ member band known as Escort led the charge a few years back with the single “Starlight.” Now, they’ve released a brand new, self-titled full length. They join us live in the studio to share their disco fever.

This segment originally aired on Jan. 30, 2012.

that's just BS. to call this derivative, is derivative. in that case, all rock and roll is derivative of the blues.

Great as a disco parody band. Otherwise, totally derivative.

Was listening to "Cocaine Blues" on the way home from work. I can see this song being big this summer!

who cares if it sounds like something else. how many classical music pieces don't follow a structure, that is more or less a patttern or pre-set?! c'mon now!

I respect their talent but hate their taste. Disco still sucks to me. It always will, I suspect.

Now this second song sounds like Donna Summer/Brooklyn Dreams and Georgio Moroder - "Sunset People."

I'm not sure if Information Society used the Knife, a fork, a bottle and cork line but I love the reference. Whatever its from. Always a mystery to me. Referencing the highly New York-Centric band Information Society is cool to me. I think Larry Levan would be proud of this New York of Escort.

One reason why disco endures: it's FUN. Great music that makes you want to dance. People love it. End of story.

WONDERFUL! And that's a sh--t hot drummer, rock solid like you need to be for this music. My greatest compliments.
