KISS ME , MONSTER (Bésame Monstruo) - "Sexodelic Disco Party" - (1969)

The subtlety of fake innocence was over by 1969, and it was time for a new era of debauchery. They were known as Dance Clubs or the dreaded Discos!

In the movie "Kiss Me, Monster", the joint was jumpin' and the music was raw and pumpin', just one big sweaty rave-up, not like some square uptown city disco. Maybe Jerry van Rooyen did the music, and it doesn't swing like any of Dan White's work, so I think this band is just some local guys that Jesus Franco picked up somewhere, and they are jammin'!!!!

The scene might be a disco-type club, but the music is pure hardcore funk to the bone!

I'm not really even sure why this fairly long scene is in this movie, but, do you care? Me neither! It makes as much sense as anything else in this film! Just Turn It Up Already!!!

Jump, Shout, And Shake It All About!

Believe it or not, much of the jazz music found in Jesus franco films is now available on CD! Go to Amazon, type in "Jesus Franco," and you'll pull up a phantasmagoria of plastic jazz greats!
