The Futurians!

whacked-out and crazy dunedin punk band based around beth duckling and the highly prolific clayton noone:

beth/duckling was looking for a new band so she hooked up with kraus. they had both been in the band the murdering monsters, and they dragged me in. kraus played drums and made noise tapes, duckling sang and played casio tone and i just wrecked a guitar. this was about ad2000-2001. soon after, we did our first cd-r “blastov!” kraus left and in came rocko on drums and the amazing iso12 on korg synth. we have also had interim members like stefan neville, and antony milton played a space-y game onstage once.rn- clayton noone: taken from this interview with brad rose

a review of their debut cdr, exterminate:

another release from the jewelled antler sub-label, this time from new zealand’s the futurians. this is a total mindfuck of an album. from the tazer-war stomp of “may i take a message?” to the noisy screaming of “titatatantronic,” the futurians don’t give a fuck what anyone thinks. noisecore or artcore, it doesn’t matter. this is what punk rock used to be about; this is just doing whatever the hell flows through you. press record and go. “engine” moans like a buzzsaw, and “orbit” even features some more “melodic” moments, though its eventually consumed by feedback and drums. “dog” crawls along slowly like a horse dragging its rider through thick mud. this is my favorite pink skulls release so far. it’s just fucked.rnbr, foxy digitalis online cd reviews

in late 2004 the futurians started their own side-label, specification as a spin-off from noone’s root don lonie for cash, quickly releasing a handful of new cd-r releases, including a split with horror magnet.
