The band is Neon Neon and their (only) album is called Stainless Style. Neon Neon seems to be a one time project between Gruff Rhys (from Super Furry Animals) and a guy called Boom Bib (don’t know anything about him).
Stainless Style is loosely based on the life of auto exec John DeLorean. John was known as the force behind the Pontiac GTO, the Firebird and the DeLorean DMC-12 that was made famous by the Back to the Future movie. An article about the rise and fall of John DeLorean can be found here and his Wikipedia page here. His story is quite interesting.
Anyways, I bought Stainless Style a couple of months ago and am enjoying it very much. I’m a 80’s music fan, and Stainless Style feels like it could have had several hits during that decade.
My favorites are:
- I Told Her On Alderaan
- Dream Cars
- Michael Douglas
