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.
