Neon Hearts Short Info

Neon Hearts got together in mid 1977 at the height of Punk. A bunch of snarling young bucks from Wolverhampton, they were inspired by the raw energy and excitement of the time. There were record deals, an album, 3 singles, splits and relaunches, iffy attempts to commercialise them, and so on. The original line-up called it a day 35 years ago, only Paul Raven made a career in the industry, going on to Killing Joke and Ministry, among others before tragically passing away in 2007.

With their new EP "Dangerous Planet", and a new album in production, due early 2015, Neon Hearts recently toured Japan to meet a demand which has extraordinarily and completely independently sprung up, as part of Japan's style and niche-obsessive youth culture. So much so that a tribute CD was released in 2011 with 9 different bands recording their favourite Neon Hearts songs.

The band now includes original members Tone Dial (Vocals), Keith Allen (Drums) and Martin Ratcliffe (Guitar) with Ed Bol (Bass) bringing a style reminiscent of Raven but with his own edge. The live set comprises a healthy mix of the old songs and a few new tunes to add some spice.
