Topic: The Units
I tuned into to a friends radio show on resonance fm the other week and his guest on the show played an absolute ripper of a track by the units called "high pressure days".
After listening to it for ages on youtube i ended up buying the new collection cd - History of the Units (The Early Years 1977-1983)). - Its pretty much been the soundtrack to my trips to and from work for the last week. They remind me of the screamers in parts as well as devo. I dont know anything about old synth punk like this apart from a screamers lp i downloaded but you can tell they had a big influence on bands like digital leather and some of the other jay reatard related bands.
Anyone know much about this guff? any other good bands old and new that do the synth punk thang?
in the mean time, if youve not heard them, check out high pressure days - www.youtube.com/watch?v=isI3ihO4Z3I
