Re-issue, originally released on Intuition label. Remastered sound, slightly different tracklisting and all New artwork. Elegant digipak in a limited edition of 500. Neon was one of the most active band in 80's Italian new wave time, marking Italian music history. The band, which was born first as a duo at the end of the 70's in Florence's underground culture, soon stands out for its Kraftwerk- and new wave icons' synth, which made their style an unique 80's cultural dream's specimen, together with a new romantic and post punk touch of bands like Joy Division, Ultravox or The Human League. In 1980, the band got off to an electronic start with the 7 single «Information of death», and later, through several line up changes, it achieves to synthesize a mix of obsessive electro sounds, obscure atmospheres and quite original pop melodies which take shapes in later works like «Tapes of Darkness» (1981), «Obsession» (1981), «My Blues is You» (1983), «Dark Age» (1984); in 1985 «Rituals» sanctioned Neon as the best Italian new wave band of that year and Neon have become cult all over the European Wave scene. This CD is a definitive Best of collection by this influential band, and also includes their very first single Information of Death, to which also FM (Pankow) contributed an important part. Released on Other Voices and available November 1st, 2010.<
