Review

Talk about prototypes. Futurisk are about as relevant to the development from punk to post to synth to New Wave as anything else you're likely to come across (this week at least). And yet after delivering a pair of sell out albums and generating quite the buzz around their live shows, just as soon as they came they vanished into the scuzzy ether circa 1984.

Gone but not forgotten thanks to astute heads at the Minimal Wave label, who clearly know a good thing when they see it, this collection showcases the strange mix of art, brute force, dancefloor, bar fight and hallucinogenic experience these Florida obscurities were all about. Before their time for sure, you can't help but also wonder if their bloody nosed synth sound would have stayed longer had they been born a few thousand miles closer to Europe, or at least in New York.
