The Units in Weird Angle

by f-stop Fitzgerald

Published in 1982.

Never mind the hardware, The Units and Chrome Dinette are synth-bands that are firmly rooted in rock basics. Behind the Prophet Vs, are well-wrought dance tunes that are not as pretentious or overtly serious as some of their heavy-handed English counterparts. Even those who shy away from bleep-and-click rock can find something to like in both bands, such as their wry lyrics and admirable maintenance of live percussion versus the now-popular click-track.
