Recorded in the first two months of 1975 at Rockfield studios (with some sessions also taking place at SARM studios in London), Futurama was the second album by Be Bop Deluxe and the first to feature the line-up of Bill Nelson, Charlie Tumahai and Simon Fox. Produced by Roy Thomas Baker, Futurama was an album of immense musical creativity and represented a huge leap forward in creative terms for both the band and Bill Nelson.
