Neon Neon

Story by Jack Foley

NEON Neon – aka LA-based producer Boom Bip and Super Furry Animals main man Gruff Rhys – are fuelling up, wiping down their windshields and preparing to hit the highway for a convoy of new UK dates.

The shows are a chance to catch Rhys, Boom Bip and band performing songs from their highly ambitious, electro pop concept album Stainless Style.

The record is wholly inspired by the ultra colourful life of of automotive maverick John Delorean, a man who lived the American dream to the edge and beyon throughout the 70s and 80s.

The newly added dates follow Neon Neon’s international summer live shows (Glastonbury, Wireless..) and the nomination to The Mercury Music Prize for Album of the Year.

Here are full dates (all 2008):

29 – Koko, London

1 – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
7 – The Sage 2, Gateshead
9 – Ruby Lounge, Manchester
10 – Glee Club, Birmingham
