UNITS ‘Animals They Dream About’ unreleased 1982 LP/CD is OUT NOW!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

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 released before!! Coming to turntables for the first time, UNITS unreleased 2nd album – Animals They Dream About, co-produced by legendary musician/producer Bill Nelson.

Shelved since 1982 due to label issues at the time, UNITS unreleased sophomore LP Animals They Dream About finally sees the light of day for all to hear, taking the bands synthpunk sound 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 Eighties progressed some of the synth textures present here would become commonplace, but the UNITS were doing it back in 81 for the recording of this lost synth gem, making their 2nd LP something of a testament to what could have been had it not been for the cruel mistress that is the ‘music biz’.

OUT NOW for a Worldwide release FUTURISMO present this rare unreleased LP on 180g limited edition coloured vinyl – in your choice of ‘Wild DNA’ or ‘Concrete Zoo’, as well as a Digipak CD version. 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.
