Patrick Gibson (ne Francfort) was French musician. He was the drummer of the Gibson Brothers.
Their disco was not my type of disco … but hey … as I often say … you can’t argue with popular.
To his credit, Patrick seemed to have played the drums on the recently deceased Manu Dibango album Manu 76 (1976).
Patrick was in his sixties. Seeing recent photos of the trio seems to confirm that covid and obesity are bad company.
The Gibson Brothers were managed by Jean Kluger (born 1937) and Daniel Vangarde (born 1947). Vangarde’s real name is Bangalter and he is the father of Thomas.
Cristina was an American singer who belongs to the entourage of August Darnell and ZE Records.
By extension she was part of the whole ‘artistic disco’ stable of Patrick Adams, Arthur Russell, Larry Levan and Bob Blank.
You might also call the field she was active in self-conscious or tongue-in-cheek disco or sarcastic disco.
Too many words, I stop here.
