Neon (4)

Profile:
Neon formed in early 1978 and were from County Durham and they really did sound like no other band at that time. Originally coming from the remains of a band called The Hephalumps they weren't going to be your bog standard 1234 merchants. However as Tim Jones recalls "We were immediately labelled punk from our first gig so that's what we thought we were although in retrospect there were so many other influences that eventually became known as New Wave." and he accurately describes their sound as "progressive punk.... Fast and furious guitar riffs." I'll add weird time signatures verging on jazz to that! Live their "playing jerks with danceable tension" opined Phil Sutcliffe in Sounds to complete the description of their sound.
