The Joy Of Disco: The history of a revolution

The Joy Of Disco &  The Joy Of Sex  

BBC has brought one of the best music documentations I´ve ever seen!

A special treat this Sunday for all our disco-fan readers outside the UK, The Joy Of Disco is a BBC documentary about that much derided music genre that seemed to come out of nowhere to change the world in the late 70s. I’ve seen a lot of documentaries about disco, and this is undoubtedly one of the best.

All up to the (seemingly inevitable) racist and homophobic “Disco Sucks” backlash. That put paid to the faddishness of the genre, but ultimately, by driving it back underground to the gay and black clubs that spawned it, helped make it stronger than ever and actually did very little to kill the sheer joy of the music itself.
