Back in the late 70's my partner Chris and I were running a little indie label in San Francisco called 415 Records. One of the bands that seemed to be doing something unique and interesting was an electronic trio called The Units. Their music was dubbed electropunk or synthpunk and we released their first album, Digital Stimulation in 1980. More recently the band leader, Scott Ryser has been remixing some of the songs for a compilation coming out on an indie label based in Portland, Oregon. You can find more information on their website, or by reading contemporary articles by Michael Snyder or Susan Klein.
Let's keep this discussion about the music and beats and not try to take it in a political direction. Lucas and I did the video especially for ya.
