The Units are a defunct, early electronic music/punk rock/New Wave/synthpunk band founded in San Francisco in 1978 and active until 1984. One of America’s first electronic New Wave bands, they are widely cited (along with The Screamers from L.A.) as pioneers of a genre now known as “synthpunk.” The Units were notable for their use of synthesizers in place of guitars, and multimedia performances featuring multiple projections of satirical, instructional films critical of conformity and consumerism.
The single “A Girl Like You” was remixed by Ivan Ivan for the US 12″ single release.
