Belle Epoque - Bamalama (disco witches)

I'm so happy I found this video which is the mix of short TV appearances of Belle Epoque performing Bamalama, put over the original 12" audio recording. So I can present both - sound and vision at one go. French trio led by Evelyne Lenton is a good example of disco with an alternative attitude. Truly innovative band with rock'n'roll influences that used electronics along with classical instruments. The lyrics are almost inappropriate to the disco times: You blow your mind using cocaine, let me blow mine using this big chain. Great track combining dance and psychedelia. I wish there were more like it. I can do nothing though but shout BAMA LAMA..
