“Dragster” by Amazing Bingo Band – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
The Amazing Bingo Band is Silvano Silvi and Alan Taylor – their one disco project is an Italo-disco track from 1979 titled “Dragster”. It was a familiar sound which always reminded me of Peter Jacques Band with the electronic fill and heavy percussion. It was the move from traditional big production disco to the stripped down high energy appeal of the early 80s.
I have taken the 12” of “Dragster” and created a Disco Video Mix taking scenes from the 1964 film “The Lively Set” starring James Darren, Pamela Tiffin and Doug McClure. The story of a young mechanic who designs the first jet powered auto and uses it in the Tri-State Endurance Run. It is a dragsters dream and ends with not only a trophy, but the ‘girl’ also, played Pamela Tiffin.
The film was directed by Jack Arnold
