mp3s - Moving Units

The Moving Units have generated some serious buzz for some months now with their Dangerous Dreams LP. They're another one of those snazzy new 80's dance-y new wave throwback bands. Are we getting bored of these indie dance-rock image bands influenced by Duran Duran, Talking Heads, Gary Numan, and/or Devo yet?

Nope, not yet. Not when they sound good, and these guys can flat out play. Maybe in the next six months, they'll all blend into the same heap of clutter, like a decaying pile of dead disco, only to be miraculously resurrected by hip kids in another 20 years.

I love them. They really rock the place live. They made me dance like a total whore at one of their shows.

Hans, with undeniably good taste, as usual, unsurprisingly. It's the live show that really matters, isn't it? When it's good, we should all do the Whoredance, which is waaaay better than the Riverdance, and a hell of a lot easier.
