You dancing? God's asking
For Liz Hoggard, in The Observer, disco's debauched birthplace was not New York, but Lichfield. There, drinking dandelion and burdock in a community hall under the watchful eyes of Mormons trying to reach out to the local youth, she found her soul

When people think about the birth of disco, they imagine Bianca Jagger riding into Studio 54 on a white stallion; Andy Warhol and Halston bitching about hemlines; wondrous willowy girls in green eye shadow and feather boas.
Not a Mormon disco in the West Midlands.
