Terminal Jive is the ninth album by the American rock band Sparks and the second recorded with Giorgio Moroder. The album has a disco-vibe like its predecessor but featured fewer synthesizers, opting instead for more electric rock guitar, resulting in a new wave sound; the album was produced by Moroder and Harold Faltermeyer, the latter of whom is claimed to have produced the majority of the album. Sparks scored a hit single in France with "When I'm with You", which led to them staying in the country for a year promoting the album. Terminal Jive was not released in the US, it was not a success in the UK. However, it fared better in continental Europe; the lead single "When I'm with You" was a hit in France where it reached #16. The single hit the Top 20 in Australia, reaching #14; the second single from the album was "Young Girls", it too performed well in France. "Young Girls" was released with an extended remix on 12", an edited version on the 7" single, backed with "Just Because You Love Me".
French releases included "Rock'n' Roll People in a Disco World", since "Just Because You Love Me" had accompanied the release of "When I'm with You" in that territory already.

Stereo (1969 film)
Stereo is a 1969 Canadian film directed, produced and edited by David Cronenberg in his feature film debut. It stars Ronald Mlodzik, who appears in Cronenberg's Crimes of the Future and Rabid, it was Cronenberg's first feature-length effort, following his two short films and From the Drain. It is a brief feature film, with a running time of a little over one hour; the film has a 60%'fresh' rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film purports to be part of a "mosaic" of educational resources by the Canadian Academy of Erotic Enquiry, it documents an experiment by the unseen Dr. Luther Stringfellow. A young man in a black cloak is seen arriving at the Academy, where he joins a group of young volunteers who are being endowed with telepathic abilities which they are encouraged to develop through sexual exploration, it is hoped that telepathic groups, bonded in polymorphous sexual relationships, will form a stabilising replacement for the "obsolescent family unit". One girl develops a secondary personality in order to cope with her new state of consciousness, which ousts her original personality.
As the volunteers' abilities develop, the experimenters find themselves unable to control the progress of the experiment. They decide to separate the telepaths; the final sequence shows the young woman. The film was shot in black and white, silent because the Bolex camera Cronenberg was using made too much noise. A commentary, purportedly by various followers of Stringfellow's theories, parodying scientific and metaphysical jargon, was added later; the film was shot at Scarborough College. The film embodies several themes now common within Cronenberg's body of work; the exploration of new states of consciousness via sexual experimentation is a major theme in Shivers, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, M. Butterfly and Crash; the idea of telepathy induced by an unknown scientist recurs in Scanners, as does the image of one tormented telepath who uses an electric drill to pierce his own forehead in what Stereo's commentary refers to as "an act of considerable symbolic significance". The film has been included as a special feature in multiple releases of other Cronenberg films, including in standard definition on Blue Underground's Blu-ray release of Fast Company, in high definition on Criterion release of Scanners and in high definition on a bonus disc in Arrow Video's UK Blu-ray release of Videodrome, The bonus disc from Videodrome was released on its own as David Cronenberg's Early Works.

Soda Stereo was an Argentine rock band created in Buenos Aires in 1982 by the power trio made up of Gustavo Cerati, Héctor "Zeta" Bosio, Charly Alberti. They are considered one of the most influential and important Latin American bands of all time and a legend of Latin music, it achieved international success throughout the 1980s and 1990s, playing a pivotal role in the surfacing and dissemination of Latin and Ibero-American rock outside Argentina. They were the first Latin rock group to achieve success throughout Hispanic America. Soda was part of a renewal in Argentina's rock scene, coinciding with the return of democracy at the beginning of the 80s with its attending optimism and the birth of other history-making acts like Virus, Sumo, Los Abuelos de la Nada, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Los Enanitos Verdes, etc. Soda’s early sound was influenced by new wave bands such as the said Virus, the Police, Elvis Costello and post-punk bands such as Television; the band evolved into a heavier sounding alternative rock band drawing influences from classic rock, progressive rock, neo-psychedelia and electronic music with the albums Canción Animal and Sueño Stereo.
Soda Stereo has topped the all-time lists in their native Argentina, becoming one of the best-selling Argentinian bands of all time and setting landmarks in record sales and concert attendances. Throughout their 15-year career, the band sold over 17 million albums in Latin America alone – this number has since continued to rise following the separation of the band. After the band's separation, all three of its members found separate endeavours – Gustavo Cerati continued a successful solo career after the band's split, releasing four studio albums, while Zeta Bosio worked for a time as bassist for several underground groups and is now touring as a DJ. In 2010, Gustavo Cerati suffered a massive stroke while on tour for his Fuerza natural album and fell into a coma dying on 4 September 2014, thus sealing the official end for the band, whose status as one of the best rock bands of Argentina has grown more since its demise. In the summer of 1982 Gustavo Cerati, at 22 years of age, Hector Zeta Bosio, at 23 years of age, collided at Punta del Este, both studying advertising majors.
At the time, both men were part of rock bands, Cerati with his group Sauvage and Bosio with the Morgan, a band he shared with Sandra Baylac, Hugo Dop, Christian Hansen, Pablo Rodriguez, Charly Amato, Osvaldo Kaplan, Andres Calamaro. Cerati and Bosio, each drawn together by the other's musical tastes, established a friendship and a musical bond that encouraged them to start playing together. Cerati first joined Bosio's group The Morgan formed Stress with Charly Amato and drummer Pablo Guadalupe working on the project Erekto with bandmate Andres Calamaro. Both projects did not meet Cerati's expectations and both fell through. Meanwhile, Cerati's sister, Maria Laura Cerati, saw herself harassed by Carlos Ficicchia, a man she had met in River Plate, Argentina who called to ask her out, all advances of which she rejected. On one occasion, when Cerati answered the phone for his sister, he entered a deep musical conversation with Ficicchia, who mentioned that he was a drummer, the son of famous Argentine jazz drummer and songwriter Tito Alberti.
Interested in his talents after hearing him play and Bosio would ask him to join the band–if he would cut his hair. It was during this time that Ficicchia would adopt the stage name "Charly Alberti"; the band, after experimenting with multiple names settled on the name los Estereotipos, which referenced a song by the Specials which they enjoyed listening to. The band would record a demo under this name, with Richard Coleman on backing guitar, a short-lived member of the band, recruited to "beef up" the guitar sound; the songs recorded would include "Porque No Puedo Ser Del Jet Set?", which would become a hit single for the band on their debut studio album. Other songs recorded included "Dime Sebastian" and "Debo Soñar" by Ulises Butrón, in which Ulises Butrón played guitars and Daniel Melero played keyboards; the trio, regretting using cliches in their band name, would brainstorm random words and write them down, a university pastime for Cerati and Bosio–eventually coming up with Soda Stereo, thanks in part to Cerati's excessive soda consumption during band rehearsals.
The first show under Soda's new name occurred in December 1982, at Alfredo Lois birthday party and Bosio's university classmate. Lois would go on to become Soda's video director as well as stylistic guru. Shortly after this first show, Richard Coleman, fourth member, left the band on good terms, recognizing that the band sounded better without him. In July 1983 the now-trio made their debut at the Discothèque Airport in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Belgrano, Buenos Aires; the band
