About This Release
This limited double A-side 'Prick Tease' / 'Neon Invasion' released on limited 7-inch, limited CDs (both formats 1000 only) and download, is the debut single from New-Wave ElectroPop five-piece Neon Plastix. Hailing from Doncaster, they've taken over their home town with an explosion of sound, playing their take on influences ranging from Devo, Talking Heads, U2, Japan, to The Rapture, The Faint, Hall and Oates: the list is endless. And when they're not painting your ear canals with musical vibrations, they're running their very own club night CLUB PLASTIX at The Boiler Rooms in Doncaster.
At the time of release the single gained support from Steve Lamacq on Radio 1 and Silent Dave on Virgin Xtreme. Since then they've been playing up and down the UK along the way bagging supports for The Kooks, White Rose Movement, The Infadels, Klaxons, Robots in Disguise, Test-Icicles, The Duels, The Blood Arm, Good Shoes, Howling Bells, Clor, and The Young Knives. They've played launch parties for Vice Magazine in both Antwerp and Amsterdam, taken in the Barfly venues around the UK as well as a Club NME headline slot at London's KOKO.
