Zodiac – Zodiac

When Space came out with their synth-heavy disco hit, Magic Fly, it inspired some Soviet musicians to make space-disco of their own. Zodiac (or Zodiaks) was a band formed in the music academy of the Latvian Soviet Socialist Republic. Their first album, Disco Alliance, sold millions of copies behind the Iron Curtain in the 1980s on the Melodia label. Strikingly, the album cover was mainly in English, which was unheard of for a Soviet act and only made it more desirable at the time. This eponymous track comes with video footage from a Soviet science fiction film, which was added by the uploader to Youtube. Both sound and vision are gems.
