THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS ‘Pretty In Pink’ Double 7 Inch Gatefold COMING SOON!

Celebrating 35 years since it’s original release, FUTURISMO present a tribute to one of the most iconic pop songs of all time;
THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS Pretty In Pink. As a heartfelt celebration to its enduring appeal this Double 7” gatefold release comes on limited colour vinyl and contains not only the Original Version but also the 86 Version that was re-recorded for, the classic John Hughes movie of the same name it inspired, as well as the hard to find and never before reissued Berlin Mix and Dub Version.

THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS’ were not the pithy end of pop music, but the cerebral end of the wedge, which is one of the many reasons Pretty in Pink transends fleeting appeal. The song was originally taken from their second album ‘Talk Talk Talk’ yet later re-recorded as the soundtrack for the aforementioned 1985 John Hughes film, scoring them a second hit for the song. Follow up albums ‘Forever Now’ and ‘Mirror Moves’ each continued to instil the bands trans-atlantic importance and US hit ’Midnight To Midnight’, although sighted as a creative disappointment for the band, also contained the re-recorded 86 version of Pretty In Pink, securing it’s position in the hearts of lovelorn, cynical and acerbic teenage romantics the world over.

ALAN VEGA ‘Self-Titled’ 1980 solo LP OUT NOW!

For the first time since it’s original release in 1980, we are proud to announce the reissue of the solo Self-Titled LP by ALAN VEGA, one half of electro punk legends Suicide. ALAN VEGA‘s Self-Titled LP is a piece of work drenched in the musical influences of his teenage years, and an album that welded an unexpected hit in the stand out opener ‘Jukebox Babe’, a track of frantic rockabilly delivery and sparse instrumentation that seduces the listener in sonics that owed little to the 50’s revival yet everything to the sensibilities of rock ’n’ roll futurism.

Units_ATDA Cover

Echoing the Suicide staple ‘Ghost Rider’ – itself a construct of repetitive rhythms and minimalist drones, punctuated by a classic vocal delivery that harnessed Gene Vincent, Elvis and the idols of Vega’s youth – ‘Jukebox Babe’ was the cornerstone to an artistic expression that ALAN VEGA continued to experiment with and implement throughout his solo Self-Titled LP and recordings beyond. With Suicide he and Martin Rev where responsible for the deconstruction of punk rock, a catalyst for the musical and aesthetic blueprints of what became post-punk, industrial rock and even synth pop. On his Self-Titled solo outing he takes a side step into the deconstruction of rock ’n’ roll itself.

Coming 12th May 2017, FUTURISMO present ALAN VEGA’s Self-Titled LP on 180g Limited Coloured Vinyl, in the choice of two colours ‘Rockin Fireball’ and ‘Vapid City’. Contained within a neon printed sleeve that utilize scans from the original Curtis Knapp negatives, is a huge A1 Screenprinted Poster, a Digital Download of all the tracks, and to top it off brand new Liner Notes by musician and friend HENRY ROLLINS.

Having sadly passed away in 2016 this release is a tribute to his incredible talents and total lack of artistic fear, for fans of ALAN VEGA and Suicide this out of print gem is essential!
