The Units (3)

The Units were an Albany, New York punk rock band. They formed circa 1979 and consisted of Val Haynes, Steve Cohen, Todd Nelson, Doug White, and Al Kash.
They released a single in December 1979 called "Japan / I am Sorry." It was advertised in the December 1979 issue of Trouser Press, one month after the San Francisco Units advertised their 4 song EP.
Due to the name conflict, the Albany Units tried to lay a cease and desist order on the San Francisco Units. It was proven that the San Francisco Units put out their EP first, but some concessions were made. The 7", "Warm Moving Bodies," lists "S.F. Units" on the label.
