Coming to turntables for the first time - UNITS unreleased 2nd album! Animals They Dream About, co-produced by legendary musician/producer Bill Nelson, also of Be-Bop Deluxe fame.

Shelved since 1982 due to label issues at the time, UNITS unreleased follow up to the the classic Digital Stimulation finally sees the light of day, taking their 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 80's progressed some of the synth textures present on Animals They Dream About would become commonplace, but 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’.

Coming 27th May 2016 for a Worldwide release FUTURISMO present this rare unreleased LP on 180g Limited Edition coloured vinyl - ‘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 by Scott Ryser and hidden musical extras...this is your chance to grab a piece of electronic history that was almost lost forever.
