Futurisk & ‘Lonely Streets’ Remix 12 Featuring Chris Carter & More

This one in via Minimal Wave's Cititrax sublabel. You might remember Veronica Vasica's Minimal Wave label from this previous psot.

"The Futurisk ‘Lonely Streets Remixes’ includes remixes by four of the band’s biggest fans, each of whom have a sound as iconic as the band themselves: Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Prince Language (DFA, Editions Disco) and Complexxion from the UK."

The release comes out April 28. You can find more info on takako here. The following is the original track from 1982 followed by some live performances of Futurisk. Moog Liberation gets the post here vs. C.

Update: SoundCloud and new, alternate video below.

"FUTURISK was a pioneering synth-punk group that recorded and performed in the pre-midi era of the early 1980s. As of yet, the Player Piano EP has not been reissued, but you can pick up a copy of a live performance of "Meteoright" at on The Found Tapes LP. The audio for this video was taken from a 24bit/96kHz vinyl rip. Highly recommended.
