Obscure DIY post-punk synth-wave single from this Tampa, Florida, band who relocated in Boston.

There's some very no-wave sounding avant punk funk on here, the insanely scrambled &#34;Ellis Otivator Dub&#34; which -- with its spliced-up vocals, psychotic shards of electronic noise and piercing guitar over gut-pounding bass n spastic drums -- sounds like it could be off of <U>No New York</U> or a 99 Records release by Liquid Liquid or ESG or Bush Tetras.
<P>
And even more bizarre is the apparent inclusion four years before &#34;Close (to the Edit)&#34; of the same &#34;Hey!&#34; sample that The Art Of Noise used so famously in 1984, and The Prodigy later picked up for &#34;Firestarter&#34;. Find the mp3 and listen closely, at 1:19 for that exact same &#34;Hey!&#34;:
