Frantique – Getting Serious (1979)

In the late 1970’s, an all American girl group Frantique had a huge disco hit with “Strut Your Funky Stuff”. Little did anyone know that this was David Christie’s “band”. David (under the alias of James Bolden) co-wrote, produced and arranged the band’s self-titled album together with Jack Robinson and Vivienne Savoie Robinson. David was also the engineer on the entire album; he played the bass, guitar, keyboards, and synthesisers throughout. He even sang backing vocals on some tracks including “Getting Serious”.

This missed disco gem from Frantique was released as a single from their album in 1979. Enjoy this great track!
