Can hardcore punk still be wild and free? On their debut record, the Bay Area's NEON breaks through the doldrums of modern life and modern punk to answer emphatically, ecstatically: YES OH YES. Ten perfect punk songs with unhinged guitar parts and caustic vocals decrying the dreariness of a world in grey. Silkscreened and hand-glued OBIs and gorgeous risographed four-color insert make this something beautiful to hold onto in these ugly times. This is liberation punk in full color. Limited to 400. Ugly girl music / NEON is life. LP out now on Square One Again Records: squareoneagain.storenvy.com/products/29058262-neon-12
released November 13, 2019
Recorded by Capt Tripps Ballsington at High Command in Olympia, WA. Mastered by Amy Dragon at Telegraph Audio. Art by NEON. Hard copy comes with silkscreened obi and risographed four color insert printed at Oddities Prints in Kansas City, MO. Thanks to Golnar.
