Well, "Aqua Boogie (A Psycoalphadiscobetbioaquadooloop)" wasn't disco, but Nile & 'Nard have gone on record saying they hated disco when they started out, and only used it to get famous. They just happened to be good at it. After all, they started out as rockers. I'm sure that, at some point along the line, they took a liking to it, but notice that starting around 1981, Chic abandoned disco for straight R&B. The "Take It Off" album has to be my second favorite Chic album. Too bad it basically bombed, compared to what the band was used to selling. And, of course, it would have to come at the time when R&B was blacklisted for it's close association with disco. But, notice how Nile 'Nard moved toward rock in the 80s? Robert Palmer, David Bowie, INXS, Rod Stewart? They never left the dance scene, though. They produced tons of dance records on their own with Madonna, Sister Sledge, Missing Persons, their own solo albums, and Duran Duran.
