Back with more Disco. I don’t know much about the music from Hungary to be honest, been there on vacation one time as a little kid and that’s it.
The only obvious thing for me is the fact that Hungary was one of the more “open” countries in the eastern block, they invited alot of big western bands (Queen for example) to play concerts infront of huge audiences (in the hundred thousands), they had a formula one grand prix from 1986 on (behind the iron curtain !) and they were the first to open the borders to austria in 1989, making it possible for thousands of people from other eastern block countries to “go west”.
However, back to the record, its Disco as I said, not entirely my cup of tea because it’s a typical record from the time when the shift from the 70s-sound to the 80s-sound took place, also alot of those tracks are too slow and boring for me, with one huge exception: B3 – “Discokece”, which is incredibly arranged. First the instrumental part and when the break with the vocals kicks in I get goosebumps, every time. Great track.
Also I found two great vids of that time from that band on youtube, have fun
Neoton Family (apparently also spelled Newton Family or Neoton Familia) have a website with a discography, but as always you can just try google to get some more information or to look on gemm.com for this record
