Futurecop! Rocks the World

futurecop!Highly recommended by all who come in contact with them, Futurecop! is taking over the world and quite rapidly at that.  Founded just over a year or so ago by Manchester’s Manzur Iqbal, the music is a sensation.  Iqbal teamed up with Peter Carrol and the two are touring everywhere you want to be, from the UK to Canada, through the end of March.   The inspiration behind futurecop! is the recreation of your favorite 80’s teen flicks.  Think of “The Goonies”, “The Breakfast Club”, and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.  Now take that feeling, add some electro-pop beats, and groove it out on the dance floor, which is exactly what we did January 24th at The Mercury Lounge.  Their 45 minute set had the entire audience shaking their tails.  Some from the crowd even joined the men on stage, some dressed as clowns, and all were merry.  If you missed them this time do not fret because they will be back on February 27th for a show at The Studio at Webster Hall.

An EP by the duo released January 5th entitled, The Unicorn and The Lost City of Alvograth, can be purchased on iTunes for under three dollars.  It’s time to spend that pocket change and revive your living room dance parties.
