The Group – “Technology” 12″

This is the last of the interesting batch of 1980s 12″ records I bought the other day over at Vortex. It was a shot in the dark, but turned out to be a pretty decent one, with three versions of the song “Technology” filling the grooves with some good, funky bass driven electronica. Released in 1983, it definitely fits into that slightly darker new wave sound from the era, and the remixes transform it into a very danceable number.

The Group look to have been pretty short-lived, putting out just one LP (1984s I Hear I See I Learn) and a small handful of singles. Decent stuff, though, and this gives me one more reason to dig around in the 12″ sections when I’m out digging.
