Paging Giorgio!

All hail Giorgio Moroder. The man with the fakest real moustache, the man with the highest amount of good (and bad) songs ever and of course, ARAWA's unofficial mascot and prom king ('77-present). I thought I knew everything about the man (underwear size, lunchmeat preferences) until yesterday when I came upon this amazing single. In 1978, on a lone 7" under the pseudonym The Beepers, Giorgio crafted two kitschy vocoded songs bridging the gap between his past sugary pop-rockin self and his future, as a sequencer brained computer disco overlord. Proving once again the man can be truly ridiculous and absolutely fucking awesome. Simultaneously.

The Beepers- Love Trap
The Beepers- Love Is You

Wow, this is dope! I never heard of this before. Is this an American pressing/hard to find?
