Review: Derry groove enthusiasts Queen & Disco don't release as much as you'd like them to. But when they do, it's always worth a spin. Here we find them in full edit mode with two great selections; first up the big bassline licks on the strong strut factor of King Tutt's "You've Got Me Hung Up". Famously one of the rarest disco records on the planet (having changed hands for over 1000 quid in the past), the Q&D boys pay full respect with their upbeat take. Flip to the B and say hello to "No Goodbyes", a big old loopy disco jam that thrusts Curtis' famous falsettos slap bang in the centre of the dance. You won't want to say goodbye to this 12". Don't leave it so long next time Queen & Disco!
Review: Derry boys Queen & Disco return for a third outing on their eponymous label, serving up two gently straightened out edits tweaked for peak-time plays. On the A-side you'll find the rising strings, rich orchestration and celebratory vocals of "Let's Go All The Way", a guitar solo-laden disco bumper tailor made for party-starting fun. Arguably even better is "Just Be Yourself", a high-octane disco thumper that's a little more loopy and house-friendly in construction. It sits somewhere between the thumping loop jams of Soundstream, the riotously camp thrust of Sylvester, and the "drum machine added" edit thrills of Boogie Cafe boss man Jimmy The Twin.
