Disco is no longer a dirty word - in fact it's now an accepted predecessor to punk. Without bumping to the former, we might not have pogoed to the latter. Get on the floor and move to Mission Of Burma, Public Image Ltd., Funkadelic, Sweet Cream, The Tubes, the Vortex OST, Cookie Monster & Larry Levan, The Future, Tarwater, Calvin Harris and Robert Fripp & David Byrne!

"Saint Stephen will remain, all he's lost he shall regain"

RFW

* Saint Stephen, "a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 6:6), was one of the Church's first seven deacons. He was appointed by the leaders of the Church to distribute food and other necessities to the poor in the growing Christian community in Jerusalem, thereby giving the apostles more time for their public ministry of proclamation (Acts 6:2-5).
