Historical hoax project, released by American label “Italians Do It Better” in 2009 but marketed as a repress of a rare italo-disco record from 1984:
“While digging for rare italo disco vinyls in the archives of a now defunct radio station, a friend found this reel dated 1984. All we could find on the internet are traces of a mysterious promo pressing (that’s where we got all the credits from) on legendary Il Discotto label”. This apparently ultra rare 12″ – a an authentic looking 12″ record was created, photographed and posted to internet forums – made collectors nervous for a while, until the truth was eventually out: “Robot Are Un-American” was in fact a retro song created for the soundtrack of indie movie “The Boy With The Sun In His Eyes” by Todd Verow and James Derek Dwyer.
