A couple weeks ago Ken Vulsion of Honey Sound System was telling the boyfriend and I about meeting John Hedges, aka Johnny Disco, the founder of Megatone Records, which itself was home to artists like Sylvester and Patrick Cowley. Mr. Disco recently moved to Palm Springs and bequeathed over 2000 classic disco singles, along with three boxes of stuff that included unreleased tracks still on the original tapes, to the HSS crew.
This Sunday the HSS boys are setting the wayback machine for 1978 and hosting a party at the former home of the Sutro Baths, where they hope to revive some of the hedonistic glory of Hedges' days as resident DJ at the Mineshaft club. Of course disco drives me crazy, but if there's a crew that I trust to make it work for even a grump like me, it would be these guys.
