No.39 x 2010
When the fourth installment of the crate diggers bible for the 21st century (Claremont 56 stellar compliation series Originals) came out last year, confusion struck those eager to hit the shops when it became evident that the balearic brits behind volume 4 (Matthew Burgess & Jolyon Green) had for some reason misspelled or distorted the name of this Swedish new wave group. The credits stated them as Diggy Tal & The Invaders, leading many diggers astray on their quest for this bass heavy bomb of a track.
Lucky for us here on home turf then that we had a head start in spotting this in the bargain bins of our local dealers.
Most of the album is crappy new wave rock with some stiff synthesizers thrown in for show. This track however stands out among the rest, partly for its straight up disco funk groove and possibly for its detour route all the way to Hollywood for a remix by studio wizard Rusty Garner.
