The Futurians

Hailing from Dunedin, NZ, The Futurians are the greatest sci-fi / punk / futurist / primitive / experimental band to ever plug in, turn on & blast off. The group has seen a string of line-up changes over the years, but at its core lie Ducking Monster (It Hurts, Rise of the City Cat Cult, etc.), CJA (Armpit, Wolfskull, Claypipe, City of Tales comics, many more…), Rocko Mandroid (Dick The Phone, Wolfskull, etc.) and ISO12 (Psychic Sidekick, Wolfskull, etc.). The band has released an insane amount of music since their inception in the early oughts, mostly limited offerings for Clayton Noone’s Root Don Lonie for Cash imprint.
