More Mucho Macho

posted by on September 10 at 11:36 AM

Do you love the Italian disco group Macho as much as me? Is so, I will treat you to another classic cut, “You Got Me Running” from their 1980 album Roll. First off, I’ll just say that as a whole, I don’t think this record even stands up to there classic 1978 debut I’m A Man. That being said the record has a couple of classic tracks including “You Got Me Running”, as well as “Got To Make A Move” and “Montreal”. You can tell that as the 1970’s were ending and disco as a genre was somewhat dying out, as far as in the mainstream, Macho, which consists of Mauro Malavasi along with co-producer Celso Valli, where experimenting with there sound, using a lot more distorted and gritty guitar riffs. However, not all was lost, as the album cut’s of both “You Got Me Running” and “Got To Make A Move” have become two of my many favorite tracks by the group. Even though I think the record is a considerable drop-off from their debut, I still think the record contains some lesser known hidden gems worth owning.
