Why are there so many hot women in a gay band's video?

This is freaking AWESOME! I had no idea disco polo even existed, but I'm hooked line and sinker! It's lika a blast from the past (the nineties), yet so very now! Today! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY, I'm off to listen to some Toples!

Time to re-forget Poland.

Thanks sos - i'm surprised the boys lead singer has time to make records, with his constant driving around.

Disco Polo is best enjoyed at a kind of open air party called a Festyn - I can't find a you tube link to do this justice, but having been to napalm death concerts and the scottish new years - the festyn was considerably more hardcore than either !

To jest swietna muzyka! Spaniale!

Seriously guys... just give it 3-4 hours for 2-3 weeks, you'll see what I mean...

So it'll be about 3 years before one could get in on the ground floor of Emo Polo, yeah?

Bang on, thats about the time you need to go from hate to love with disco polo : )

I can't help but think that I've heard about this Disco Polo somewhere before, sgt.serenity.

Despite having only watched the first video, I can now say with no small degree of certainty that Poland is the birthplace of the mook. Were I to turn to my dictionary, I know that I would find a portrait of the lead singer--in full wifebeater/black-belt-with-white-pants regalia--illustrating the definition of the term.

There is no mook shortage here, but I don't think you can credit us with inventing them. Crap culture--especially clothing styles and manners of posturing--tends to flow this way from US and UK cities.

Yeah, it looks like you actually listen to this stuff, sergeant. Head injury? Brother-in-law in the business?

pracowity, you're likely right. At first, I felt like an archaeologist who's found the source of a language's script. But, after viewing the second video, I began thinking that this was just another manifestation of International Mook Culture. The search continues.

Actually, I probably should've just said "Boys boys boys!"

Hoo Hah!

Like my friend says above - repeated exposure to disco polo results in some kind of conversion.
posted by sgt.serenity at 2:14 PM on December 28, 2007


Nope. I listened for the past year, and still refrained from an FPP on disco polo.

Eastern European Countryside homemade dance pop. Got it. Next?

I would have been considerably more cheered up if the songs weren't so horribly infested with Auto-Tune.
