Futurisk Player Piano LP South Florida Electronic Ultra Mint Condition
Futurisk (stylized as FUTURISK) was an electronic electropunk group based out of Lighthouse Point that recorded and performed live in the late 1970s and early 1980s in South Florida, and are believed to be the first electropop/electropunk band in the American South.
They initially had two 7 inch vinyl releases on Clark Humphrey Records; The Sound of Futurism 1980/Army Now (1980) and Player Piano EP (1982), the latter of which was rediscovered in 2002 by LCD Soundsystem frontman and DFA Records co-founder/producer James Murphy when he happened across it in a NYC record store. Murphy subsequently released a Futurisk track, Push Me Pull You,Part 2 on a DFA mix CD through the Paris fashion-house Colette in 2003, titled Collette No. 5 , sparking a renewed interest in Futurisk's music. In 2010 the NYC based label Minimal Wave released a 30th anniversary retrospective full length vinyl of Futurisk's works titled Player Piano LP and received positive reviews in the press.

At the band's request, the question "Who is the real Clark Humphrey?" is stamped in the run-out groove of side 1 of every copy of this pressing.
On this pressing, the stated versions of "Army Now" are reversed from the track list, hence; *band A3- " Army Now ('82) " * & * band B5 -"Army Now" * are misnamed as eachother wherein the version " Army Now ('82) " band B5 plays it and vice-versa. Most digital version were corrected.
