Viva la resistance!

This is not your daddy's disco...

Early Stereolab, with their song "French Disko", when they still rocked. This was after Mary Hansen joined the band to sing counterpoint to Laetitia Sadier but before they went completely 60's-style euro-pop. Do look up the lyrics for this song, which read like margin notes in a book of French philosophy found in the "foreign languages" section of a used book store, roughly translated into English by Ms. Sadier. Only in France could such a thing be called "disko" :).
