I finally got around to upgrading the blog from an outdated Movable Type installation to the much cooler and easier-to-use Wordpress. Dig the cool theme?
Eclectic British reissue label Finders Keepers has just released the first-ever English language compilation of 70’s Hungarian sexpot Sarolta Zalatnay. The US release is slated for April 24.
Crate-digging DJs from the UK and elsewhere have long coveted rare vinyl copies of Sarolta’s early work — as well as that of other 70s Hungarian funk rock bands such as Locomotiv GT, Skorpio and Omega — for their funky, wide-open breaks and Sarolta’s searing vocals, which are reminiscent of Janis Joplin.
A notorious celebrity in her native country, Zalatnay recently served a two-year sentence for fraud, and in 2001 posed nude in Hungarian Playboy — the oldest woman ever to do so.
