Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
In 2015 Futurismo brought you the first ever reissue of UNITS 1980 electronic cult classic Digital Stimulation. This year Futurismo bring you something by the UNITS never ever released before. Coming to turntables for the first time – UNITS unreleased second album Animals They Dream About, co-produced by legendary musician/producer Bill Nelson, also of Be-Bop Deluxe fame.
Shelved since 1982 due to label issues at the time, UNITS unreleased sophomore LP finally sees the light of day for all to hear. Whilst Digital Stimulation forged a sound now known as synthpunk, this time San Francisco's UNITS take things in a slightly more synthpop/new wave direction. At this point a four piece, UNITS still employed the live components and arch observation that were a key to their contemporary punk tinged electro sound, whilst embracing a greater sense of mood and melody. As the '80s progressed some of the synth textures present on Animals They Dream About would become commonplace, but the UNITS were doing it way back in 1981 for the recording of this lost synth gem, making their second LP something of a testament to what could have been, had it not been for the cruel mistress that is the ‘music biz'.
Futurismo is pleased to present this rare unreleased LP on limited edition colored 180-gram vinyl. Salvaged and remastered, this release also contains new artwork, unseen images, a huge poster, liner notes and hidden musical extras...this is your chance to grab a piece of electronic history that was almost lost forever!
