Title: Jawhol Yoko!
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"I was first introduced to these New Zealand shredders through the 267 Finland dudes. NZs finest rock the boat, baby, with some of the dirtiest surf rock from either side of the equator. This tape compiles live tracks and other odds and ends from barnacle encrusted clubs. Rock and Roll with tsunami force breaks everything in its path except for the party. Recent shred out on Foxy Digitalis and Last Visible Dog. Cover art by Thomas Bernard on transparent paper with totally hand made tape labels. In an edition of 50." - Arbor.

Title: Distorted Living
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Clayton Noone (aka CJA) has been cranking oddball noise out of Dunedin since before your mom even heard of the town. The same goes for Beth Dawson (aka Ducklingmonster) and Pat Kraus (aka Kraus), who co-founded this sci-fi-punk-astro-juggernaut back in 2001. They invited Clayton to join right away. Kraus left soon after, to be replaced by Jason Aldridge (aka ISO-12) and Sean Norling (aka Rocko Mandroid), although he still hangs around and his head actually pops up on this very LP. I guess the concept of distorted living has too strong a pull on his brain. Regardless of the fact that Clayton runs several labels, most notably the very long-lived Root Don Lonie for Cash, this appears to be only the second album-length vinyl offering Futurians have thus far done. There have been more than a few amazing cassettes and CDRs and lathes, but this is really only LP #2 (unless I am very confused). Not sure why more labels have not jumped onto the Futurians bandwagon over the last 17 years, but hey, we cant all have the wisdom of Spock. Distorted Living is a flat-out hoseload of cosmic gas from its first grunt til its last. Shorthanders will be tempted to describe it as Mu Mesons play Hawkwind or something. And while that is not completely off-base, it only captures certain aspects of the very specially spaced weirdness this band conveys. Knowing their visuals solely from their packaging and YouTube, I can only say that they look like theyd pass for great space hippies on a late period episode of the original Star Trek. And the way they compress the psychedelic thrust of their sonics makes one think this whole album may have been recorded in an air lock. One customer at the store, hearing the test pressing, asked Is that lasers? And while we made fun of him for not knowing that lasers are silent, later, as we listened more, we realized that if some sentient lasers decided to start a band it would probably sound a whole lot like Futurians. Which is the very nature of Distorted Living. Something, which if you are wise, you are about to experience first-hand. Welcome aboard." -Byron Coley.

Title: Hybrid Attack
Format: Cass
Label: Imvated
Country: Belgium
Price: $8.50
"(...)All the while, below the chaos, a damn good band is playing. The basslines routinely hook, the riffs drag cro-magnon-heavy, and savage, stoned Kraut-tinged beats blare. The structure eludes the standard song instead stumbling or sleeping, unconcerned or hostile to form but the punk inspiration remains. Of course, the punk ethos should lend itself to something like this: a recycling of broken machinery, a paean to obsolete machinery, a valorization of the left behind." Futurians is Kraus, Duckling, CJA, rocko,... etc!" - Imvated.

Title: Programmed
Format: LP
Label: Planam
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
Matt Middleton (Crude, The Aesthetics, Dirtlove): "The Futurians are a band that have soul. Their music, a pulsating, minimalist, primitivist, machinistic monster of a thing is at once fiction and fantasy, at once politics and hyper-reality. Theirs is an approach synthesizing elements of no-wave, new-wave, synth-rock, drone rock, doom rock, kraut-rock, Dunedin dirge, robot rock, riot grrllism, and calculator punk." Brad Rose: "Clayton Noone and his posse of Duckling Monster, ISO12, Rocko Mandroid, and Krauss have enough energy to light a small town for a year. Have enough energy to light a small town for a year." Full-color sleeve; Edition of 200.
