THE FUTURIANS (NZ) + MORE TBA
The Futurians (NZ)
After 20 years of distorting Aotearoa New Zealand, and with a googolplex of recorded releases, THE FUTURIANS are headed to Europe! A delicious scuzzoid blend of futura-punk noise, in fine.
Their music has been described as drawing influence from punk, trash experimental, noise, no wave, new wave, disco, lo-fi, art, dirges, riot grrrl, drone and space rock.
The reviews have tried to capture their essence accordingly: "torn-down semi-punk skiffle", "the sound of gay robots disco dancing and crushing everything underfoot", “taser-war stomp, overamped”, "moto-beat wiggy-fuzz-workout", "as raw as a skinned knee", "armed with nuclear weapons of sonic dust", “pure mayhem”, "the remnants of space debris raining down on the green hills of New Zealand", a "lo-fi art-rock nightmare", and "bent punk wizardry"

Good Read: Review Distorted Living (FeedingTube Records, FTR 309)
“They manage to reference and update the New Zealand avant-garde punk of the past with their own future primitive vision. I’m thinking of Xpressway and early Flying Nun but colliding head-on with Phillip K Dick and B-Movie Sci-Fi from the 1970s.”
Glenn Donaldson - Pink Skulls and Jewelled Antler Record Labels
“The Futurians are one of New Zealand's most enduring creative ensembles, having pursued their unique approach to musical exploration for the best part of twenty years. The individual musicians in the band are innovators of the highest order, each sustaining successful individual careers as creative musicians and visual artists alongside their work with the band.”
Dan Beban – Pyramid Club / Orchestra of Spheres
"The best punk band on the fucken planet."
