I think I should take this opportunity and ask you who is 'Body Power'?
Please explain a little bit confuzed situation with your band, different
voices in the studio then it is on live stage.... How much frustrated
was the situation that you have been singing songs only on live apearance
and some other singer sang in the studio? Something similar was going
on with Den Harrow.
I guess I could
already know your answer on the following question, but don't you think
that producer has the full rights to choose vocals and do with his songs
whatever he wants? It seems that it was stlye of many Italian producers?!
Did you choose
the name of the band or someone else? Did you have something to say to
the audience with that name?
What can you say
about song 'Nothing'?

the photo session for the cover of „Fire“

|That's mean that song has been released two years later, for Out Records. Would you tell the reason why you needed two years to release it? And how you got in contact with the guys who worked on the song: Laurent Gelmetti, Fillipo Renzi. I would like to hear more history of this song please.|
No, we were not needed 2 years 'cause I have written this song at the end of 1984 and at the end of 1985 we recorded.('Nothing' was published in january 1986). When I wrote this song I thought was nice, fun but I thought we wanted something better. Then, one day, while I spoke with our producer Filippo Renzi he told me he wanted for u a song with a winning refrain and if I had some ideas. So I thought to make him feel the master on which I had recorded „nothing“ and he said to me: "it's fantastic".
Albert One is
one of the guys involved in the song 'Nothing'. Could you tell me something
about him and your work with him please?
about 'Nothing'. It is mixed in Factory Sound Studio in Verona, owned
by Mauro Farina. Have you perhaps met him during 80's?
On the 'Nothing'
cover we can see two guys. Which one is you?
How you met Mark
Song 'It's A Life'
followed and this is song where you are credited as producer? Tell me
about that song please?
"Cover of 'It's A Life' by Tokyo Records"
how you got into music bussiness?
Have you been
working with some other italo disco artists during 80's?
Do you have some
unrealsed 80's songs?
Are they italo
disco style or... Do you regret they are not published and would be possible
to release them today?!
Have you been
singing backing vocals in any italo song perhaps?
How would you
describe italo disco age and especially going around to perform live?!
a cover of 'Eagles' song „I Can't Tell You Why“ with the name 'Body Power', but without Mark Taylor. This is the last 'Body Power' record. After this I changed the name and in 1995 I published Logical U feat. Paul Bizz – 'Let Me Fly Higher'
In 1997 my first record for a major Paul Bizz feat. Cindy Ree – 'Tout Petit La Planete' a cover of the famous song of 'Plastic Bertrand'. This song was published by EMI .
In 1998 Logical U - Touch Me, a very beautiful song published in a Disco mix with on side A, a remix by Bum Bum Club. 'Bum Bum Club' was the most important dance remixers of the second half of 90's.
In 1999 Logical U feat. Carol – 'True Love' another beautiful (for me) song. Have you heard this song on 'Youtube' ?
In 2000 Logical U – Love Again with on side A a remix by Roland Brant.
In 2001 I decided to change the name again and I published an important song for 'Virgin Records': The Bumba Victims – 'Sexy Eyes'. This song was inserted in two italian great compilations (250.000 copies) 'Hit Mania Dance Champions 2001' and 'Virgin All The Hits Now 2001'. Most of these songs are inserted in various complation in these years: '80 Remix', 'Italia Network Juke Box Dance Attack', 'Mega Hits Dance Compilation', 'Lap Dance Compilation', 'I Love Disco Diamonds' and more.
Yes, I heared song
'True Love', with Carol. Pure italo dance and sounds pretty happy song. Who
is Carol and how you met her?
Carol is a graet singer, she sang in piano bars and like a chorist in studio recorded and we has been recommended. Obviously Carol is a fantasy name.
Paul, what are you doing
Today I'm working for a DVD company, and collaborate with a studio recording of a friend. We did some songs like a new song for 'Logical U' called 'Blowin' Away' this is an unrealeased song. A cover of 'Daddy Cool' a famous song of Boney M. And more.
Can you share with us
your music plans for near future? I guess if they are some, they are not including
recording song in the 80's style?! Or maybe you do....?
In this moment I don't know but i think everything it's possible.
Do you have something
to say about anything important for your music and I did not include it in my
No , I think you are very good at asking questions and interview is complete.
But I might a question about music: Paul Bizz, what kind of music you prefer?
I love hard rock and metal music and my favorite band are the kiss
Do you have any message
for your fans?
A big greeting to all of my fans know that even today there are people who remember 'Nothing' and others songs is for me cause of great pride. And is nice to think, in my small, to have given something to music. God bless you.
I want to thank to my italo friend Kimmo Parviainen for his great kindness!
