A bizarre digitised treat in the form of this Europcar promotional 7" from 1983. It was produced in Belgium by Micro. Not sure who they were - possibly Messers J. Ventura, J. Lardot and J. Puertas who claim the writing credits. According to Discogs, J. Lardot was a member of Tormentor, a Belgian heavy metal band from Brussels active in the 1980's. As for J. Puertas, he could also be from Tormentor but could be the keyboardist on Dutch band The Machines' 'Dots & Dashes' LP, also from 1983. The Machines link seems most unlikely, probably dubious linking by a Discog contributor.

The 10 cents invested in this curio were well spent. Resplendent with a sublimely catchy chorus and a steady motorik funky groove replete with bad multi-lingual rapping, a peach of a catchy chorus finished off with customer service fuelled outro just to ram the message home. They are the super service people after all.

There's also an Italian 7" and 12" pressing with the 12" apparently contaning a Disco mix. Maybe the record was a huge smash in the Italian clubs in 1983! Anyway, it's huge smash around The Trappists HQ - so much so that we've done a little re-edit. Head here or here to listen & download or here to watch the video.

Download the original single's quirky delights below. 320 kbps mp3's ripped from the 7".
