Final Unit (tape, Final Records 001, 198?), Ego Produkties (tape, Final Records 005, 198?)
Two tape releases of a highly obscure nature. According to the cassette catalogus there is another release on this label, which I don't have. Final Unit was real band with Aad (vocals, percussion), Henri (drums, syn. drums), Jan (bass), Guido (guitar, syn drums) and Rob (synth, vocals, rhythm box). It lists phone numbers in The Hague, but it was recorded at Nieuw Nyevelt in Wassenaar, the same place as used by Ensemble Pittoresque. The b-side is a live recordings which I couldn't properly index. Besides the titles, it says 'recorded in the living room' for the Ego Produkties release, but I wouldn't be surprised if this was some kind of off-shoot from Final Unit. Both of them are pretty decent releases of rock combining with electronics, though not really synth punk.
