Konk
The Magic Force of Konk 1981-1988

KONK (their capitalisation) were a sort of post-punk band that played the clubs of New York and elsewhere in the early 80s. I say sorta post-punk because their sound encompassed hip-hop, jazz and latin music and created a wall of kinetic rhythms for hip clubbers of the era to dance to. This 3LP box set is the ultimate collection of their work and comes on three different flavours of vinyl. Bound to appeal to fans of ESG, James Chance, Liquid Liquid and LCD Soundsystem. 

Devo
Smooth Noodle Maps

Devo’s 8th album, Smooth Noodle Maps, was originally released in 1990. It received a lukewarm reception from critics and fans initially, but time has been kind and it is now a fan favourite. It includes a version of Bonnie Dobson’s Morning Dew, which was also famously covered by The Grateful Dead. Devo were never a band to do things in a normal way, and that has continued into their reissue program. It is being released on three different coloured vinyl versions and CD.

James White and The Blacks
Sax Maniac (Redux)

James Chance, hiding in plain sight here. James White And The Blacks is basically Chance and his Contortions minus keyboard player Adele Bertei. Their fantastically-titled 1982 LP Sax Maniac is another piece of no-wave wackiness from Chance, all ESG basslines and James Brown horn licks. This Redux reissue from Futurismo contains a bonus cut which features Arto Lindsay.

Devo
Total Devo

Total Devo was originally released in 1988 and universally panned by critics. Devo were playing a joke, however, but their mocking of the state of pop music only backfired. As time has passed, it has become a more common belief that Total Devo was just completely misunderstood. Time for reappraisal, then, This is a super-limited multi format release for the album's 30th anniversary offering three colours of vinyl LP (when they’re gone, they’re gone) with poster, postcards and liner notes and a double CD with poster and liner notes on Futurismo.

Alan Vega
Alan Vega

As one half of electro-punk pioneers Suicide, Alan Vega deconstructed punk and was central to the birth of post-punk, new wave and most that followed. On the side he worked on his solo efforts, focusing more on rock and roll and rockabilly, stripping it and pulling it apart. Not re-pressed since the 1980s, comes with a huge A1 screen-printed poster and notes from Henry Rollins.

Martini Ranch
Holy Cow

Here’s one that might be news to you. As a tribute to the passing of Bill Paxton Futurismo have unearthed his avant-synth-pop project Martini Ranch, from 1986-1988 he worked with Andrew Todd, and also featured members of The B52’s and Devo. The reissue comes with a DVD featuring two music videos directed by James Cameron and Rocky Schenck.

The Psychedelic Furs
Pretty In Pink

Limited pink vinyl reissue of the absolutely classic 80's anthem 'Pretty In Pink' as heard in the John Hughes Movie of the same name, release your inner Molly Ringwald with this lush gatefold double 7" complete with liner notes, colour inner sleeves and a photographic art postcard.     

Suburban Lawns
Suburban Lawns

Cult favourite Suburban Lawns have their 1980 debut album reissued by Futurismo. Suburban Lawns is a wonderful thing, a tight, rubbery, bouncing example of an underground new wave / post-punk group in their creative prime. Available as a CD, or as Green Sprinkler or Silver Flying Saucer coloured 180g vinyl.

Our Daughter’s Wedding
Moving Windows

Reincarnated onto vinyl and CD from Futurismo, is Moving Windows - the 1980's brainchild of highly underrated American synth-punks Our Daughters Wedding. Produced by big hitters David Spradley (Funkadelic) and Colin Thurston (Duran Duran, Iggy Pop), this reissued version fires the trio into the 21st century.

Units
Animals They Dream About

Archival labels are great: not only do they reissue much-loved releases from days gone by, but sometimes they even give old records their first release! Animals They Dream About, the planned second album of Units, was never previously issued: a huge shame as it positively bristles with synth-punk energy. History has been righted here! Cheers Futurismo.

Devo
EZ Listening Muzak

Futurismo repress this compilation of muzak covers Devo recorded of their own songs and sold via their fan club. This bizarre material pushes the witty, eccentric and utterly unique Devo sound in an even more extreme direction. EZ Listening Muzak comes with a wealth of wacky Devo merchandise and although it is available as a CD boxset, the vinyl LP set comes in antique walnut or lava lamp colour!
