NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #319 ~ 08-13-22]

Pictured: The Aural Exciters.

With Ze Records on a roll—“It was my best period creatively,” reminisces [ZE president Michael] Zilkha. “I felt like I was on autopilot” — Rob Partridge, a promoter in Island’s London office, came up with the idea that the label should release a compilation album. Containing six cuts from Material with Nona Hendryx, Was (Not Was), Cristina, Gichy Dan, Don Armando’s 2nd Ave Rhumba Band, and Coati Mundi, the result captured the strange coherence that underscored the label’s aesthetic of mayhem. Titled Seize the Beat (Dance Ze Dance) in the United States and Mutant Disco: A Subtle Discolation of the Norm in the United Kingdom, the result flaunted its miscreant credentials. “I used to say ‘a subtle dislocation of the norm,’ and they turned it into ‘discolation of the norm,’ ” remembers Zilkha. Interviewed by the New York Times in June, August Darnell flew the flag on intercultural transformation. “To me, the beauty of music is its possibilities for mutation. And that mutation represents a larger ideal: global coexistence.”

— Tim Lawrence, Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor 1980-1983
