 Village People – The Artist/s

Village People is an American disco group known for its on-stage costumes and suggestive lyrics in their music. The group was originally formed by French producers Jacques Morali, Henri Belolo and lead singer Victor Willis following the release of the debut album Village People, which targeted disco’s large gay audience. The group’s name refers to Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, with its reputation as a gay neighbourhood. The characters were a symbolic group of American masculinity and macho gay-fantasy personas. The group quickly became popular and moved into the mainstream, scoring several disco and dance hits internationally, including the hit singles “Macho Man”, “In the Navy”, “Go West”, and “Y.M.C.A.”, which was their biggest hit.

In The Navy – The Song

‘In The Navy’ is a song by American disco group Village People. It was released as the first single from their fourth studio album, Go West (1979). After the enormous commercial success of their 1978 hit “Y.M.C.A.”, which unexpectedly became the unofficial hymn and powerful advertising tool for the YMCA, the group took on another national institution, the United States Navy. The Navy contacted group manager Henri Belolo to use the song in a recruiting advertising campaign for television and radio. Belolo gave the rights for free on the condition that the Navy help them shoot the music video. Less than a month later, the Village group arrived at Naval Base San Diego where the Navy provided them with access to film on the deck of the berthed frigate USS Reasoner; in the end, the Navy did not use the video, choosing to remain with the traditional “Anchors Aweigh”.

The Sailor – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a sailor wearing a service uniform of the period.
