There was at least one Bostella song a hit in Holland, by Johnny & Rijk. I will spare you that record. Over the years I stumbled on several records that supposedly were Bostella’s, but not very many, and most of them were horrible. But one day I found this 45 by Perez Pillar:
The song on the A-side is a run of the mill Bostella, but on the B-side is this Bostella express:
Because I like the song, I just did a little search for info on the Bostella.
On this site is said that that the dance was created by a mafia dance teacher, Killer Joe Piro, in the fifties in New York. But Wikipedia tells me that it was a French journalist, Yvan Honore Bostel, who came up with the Bostella in 1965 in Paris. Meer kon ik niet vinden. When I typed in “Perez Pilar” in the Google search engine, I only found links to Pillars and Perezes that I have no interest in, so I added “Bostella” to the name and found this!!!
When this happens again, I think it is time to end this blog.
