Limited 180gm colored vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered 35th Anniversary edition of this 1980 album from the San Francisco post-punk/electronic pioneers. Inspired by punk in ideology, though not necessarily in sound, San Francisco's Units were a young breed of dystopic visionaries art space prodigies and trash culture futurists set on reshaping sound for a new age. Equally as influenced by experimental cinema, performance art and Brechtian street theater as they were the music of Suicide and Devo, Units offered a glorious glimpse into how and what pop music could be. Their influence has stretching all the way through synthpunk and new wave pop into the most contemporary electro musicians. Originally released in 1980, Digital Stimulation was Units true calling card and masterpiece. Containing the now famous opener 'High Pressure Days', this is a time capsule brought up from the dawn of the digi-age; all metronomical rhythms, wry lines and ice-cold delivery... part of a lineage that includes Neu!, Tubeway Army, 'Being Boiled'-era Human League and Cabaret Voltaire, making this a vital recording for anyone interested in electronic music at all - past or present. Its relevance reinstated by the recent remixes and coverage by contemporary musicians including Erol Alkan, Health and Todd Terje... and with original copies selling at extortionate prices this is a rerelease that's long overdue. Comes with new stylized artwork, metallic ink sleeve, rare imagery, hidden tracks and a huge fold-out double sided poster containing brand new liner notes by Scott Ryser.
