How deep is your love?

Paris Review on the history and influence of the BeeGees, with some bonus pop psychology.

The radio station I listened to in high school, KISW in Seattle ("if it's too loud, you're too old"), had a nightly feature called "Disco Destruction" in which they would play a disco song at varying speeds and overlaid with the sounds of chain saws and wolves howling. After a minute or so, the DJ would drag the needle across the remainder of the record and immediately transit into some head-banging hard rock song. Good times.

Note to younger readers: the needle refers to the bit of the record player that came into contact with the vinyl record.
