More than 30 years ago ‘Bizarre Unit’ released their timeless and highly collected classic single ‘Dancing/Away from the Screaming Car’. Now for the first time ever, Bizarre Unit and VOD-Records have uncovered the lost treasure trove of their surviving recordings. These unique recordings have been digitally transferred, edited and carefully restored from the ¼-Reel-Recordings and Cassettes. Embedded crackling and background noise from the original surviving Acetates have been carefully processed to achieve the best possible sound reproduction.
The result is an audio collection consisting of a 20-Track Double-LP and a 5-Track EP with almost 100 minutes of 'A Strange Functional System'
Apart from their only single-release the 20-Track-Double-Lp contains their previously unreleased second single ‘Frozen Wastelands of Alaska / Lovers in Paris’ and their amazing first demo session containing 5 Tracks which have only recently surfaced from 1980 as well as 1979/80-Rehearsal and Demo-Tracks.
The 5-Track 12" EP features alternative versions of the Tracks from the Double-Lp. E.g. ‘Hot Like a Lizard“, ‘Ladytron’, ‘Not Saying Anymore’ and ‘Reinstate Domination’ plus the exclusive EP-Track ‘Wave my Hands and Say Hello’.
Paul Nova who is well known for his all time Minimal Synth/Wave-Classic album ‘Trees Without Leaves’, co-wrote and produced all the songs on this fascinating collection.
‘A Strange Functional System’ will prove to be an important release, that will satisfy every serious fan of early 80’s Wave and Minimal/Synth. Giving us a valuable insight into the unique talent and musical originality of ‘Bizarre Unit', and the musical beginnings of Paul Nova
