An Australian disco pioneer in the ’70s, now a huge dancefloor star again, we talk to the legendary dance music figure Alston.

Those sweating in the clubs to Alston’s ARIA Top 20 album Don’t Funk With Me and the ‘Soul Sounds’ and ‘Don’t Know Why’ singles in Australia, the UK, Europe, and his birth country of Sri Lanka, probably weren’t born when he had his first hit ‘Disco Lady’.

We talk to the kind king of disco and the latest club hero about decades in the business, being seen with Prime Ministers and pop stars, his devotion to cricket, and a chaotic show onboard the warship that ended up disposing of Osama Bin Laden’s body. It’s been a crazy ride.
