Neon - Rituals (Expanded Edition) CD

Neon are undoubtedly one of the most influential and enduring bands of the Italian New Wave. From the beginning, the band's music was perfectly aligned with continental trends--integrating the attitude of early post-punk with certain types of electronic music that had timidly begun popping up on the club circuit, and an aesthetic that was a cross between late romanticism and decadentism. After a string of 12"s (five altogether) and a 7", the band finally released their first LP, "Rituals" in 1985 for KinderGarten. This crucial album, which unquestionably represented the band's Creative Peak, has now been re-released by Spittle not merely for the sake of the album itself, but also as part of a wider campaign to document the Italian New Wave scene. The 8 tracks that make up this digitally remastered reissue (with 3 extra 12" versions) represent one of the most original possible journeys into the Italian underground. Obsessively rhythmic, like a pagan ritual, with the vagueness and asperity of primordial rock and roll and an inkling of late seventies / early eighties electronica!
