Neon was one of the most active bands in the 80s Italian new wave scene. The band was born first as a duo at the end of the 70-s, a part of Florence-s underground culture, they soon stood out for their Kraftwerk inspired synth sound, which made their style a unique 80s specimen, together with a new/romantic and post/punk thought similar to bands like Joy Division, Ultravox and Human League. In 1980, the band got off to an electronic start with the single @Information of death@, and later, through several lineup changes, they managed to synthetize a mix of obsessive electro sounds, obscure atmospheres and original pop melodies which reached full form in later works like My Blues is You *1983(, Dark Age *1984(, and Red Light *1986(. Those three classic 80s darkwave 12"s are to be reissued by Spittle in limited editions of 500 copies. Aside from the Rituals album *also available from Spittle(, these are the finest examples of work from one of the 80s Italian scene's finest groups.
