Britain really took the Disco boom to it's heart. But what home-grown disco acts were there?

I don't mean early 80s rare groove or any of that. I am talking 76-78 proper disco hitmakers.

The Bee Gees don't count, for reasons I will explain as soon as I come up with them.

I've just been having a Gibson Brothers conversation. They were British weren't they ?

Did The Real Thing count as disco?

Tina Charles?

Rod Temperton (who???) wrote lyrics for Michael Jackson, George Benson, etc.

The Gibson Brothers were from Martinique.

And anyone who says Liquid Gold, dies.

Music, too. Bit of a genius.

Glaswegian she was. Not that I'm claiming her or anything.

Besides, she was more synth pop than late 70s disco.

Were Heatwave British?

And British disco didn't end in 1978. Acts like Imagination and Phil Fearon & Galaxy produced some bona fide disco classics after the boom went bust in the US. And Junior Giscombe produced one.

Heatwave were Anglo-American. Somehow I like the fact that Rod Temperton, who write all those funky tunes for Michael Jackson, was from Cleethorpes.

I don't see Imagination or Galaxy as 'disco' - they (especially the latter) sounded more like anaemic Eighties mullet-soul to me (ie one costume change away from Five Star).

There was also Linx in the 80s, before David whatsname became a Fame Academy coach.
