A Neon Rome - New Heroin LP
I think this album was requested some time ago by Roman Empire. Finally found a copy as it doesn't turn up for sale alot.
A Neon Rome was from Toronto, Canada and existed from 1984 to 1987.
First I didn't have any info but a biography can be found on Punk History Canada.
An interesting fact is that their sound was inspired by playing a record of Psychic TV on the wrong speed. Also the band didn't have real songs so most of the tracks on this album were jams.
There is a second album recorded 'All The Children Are In' but I guess this was never released.
Singer Neal became disillusioned with all the success and took a vow of silence.
The 'New Heroin' album was released in Canada on Fringe Product but my copy is the French pressing on New Rose.
