I would not try to buy you all something here.. or say this group has invented something or was the roots of some disco flavour electronic & house music today...but.. still... everytime I hear songs like "212 North 12th" think... they were in some ways.. in sound... ahead of their time somehow...

(remind me too some stuff like "Munich Machine" among others, of course)
