***“'A rehearsal tape by Suicide in 1975, The Units 4-song 7″ on 9 August 1979, Pere Ubu’s 'My Dark Ages' (October 1979) with Alan Ravenstine on EML synthesizer (re-released on Rough Trade 049 on a 7″ in 1980) and the first demo session by The Screamers with Pat Garrett on 7 July 1977 are candidates for the earliest synthpunk recording.' This is how the start of the synthpunk history section on wikipedia begins. When The Units self released the mentioned 7″ back in 1979 it was clear that it was a fresh new sound. Over at FDH we discovered The Units back in the early 2000′s and have been obsessed with all of their output. We are thrilled to announce that for the first time since 1979 this EP will become available in the 7″ format once again. This initial repress is limited to 500 copies. All copies are hard stamped covers to retain the original look and feel. In addition all copies will include a download of the EP as well as a download of a unreleased 9 song live set recorded at The Deaf Club in 1979.”
