Neon Plastix ‘Awesome Moves’ – debut album May 2010

Neon Plastix release their long awaited debut LP “Awesome Moves” after taking one hell of a siesta. The album is chock full of electro tinged dancefloor pop, including On Fire, Gentlemen’s Gold and ten other future smashes. Album will be preceded by single Gentlemen’s Gold.

The band have achieved a cult following both in the UK, Europe and USA, despite having only released 2 singles to date (Neon Invasion/Prick Tease, On Fire/Dream), and secured deals along the way with E.A Games ‘Need For Speed’ and Sony Eriksson for use of their music. Neon Plastix have played multitudes of dates across Europe, even including a spot at Glastonbury, as well as touring with Late Of The Pier amongst others (who they also remixed). After they declared an inevitable hiatus whilst some members finished college courses and such, the band have woke up and rubbed their eyes, dusted themselves down and are ready to release their debut album “Awesome Moves”

“These new-wave songs force a grin regardless of gender. An impassioned and feel-good statement of intent” NME

“This one’s sure to go mental. Think pop-punk new wave disco floorfiller” Rough Trade

“Doesn’t it just conjure up the pungent whiff of hair gel and cheap fluorescent spirits?” Drowned In Sound

Blow Up presents Exclusive Blend Volume 1 sees Paul Tunkin, DJ & founder of Blow Up club, taking us on a journey deep into the vaults of the KPM music library. Originally released in 1996, the Blow Up Exclusive Blend series were one of the first commercial introductions to Music Library and the twilight world of the session man. Volume 1 features the cream of the KPM Music Library writers including Keith Mansfield, Alan Hawkshaw, Alan Parker and Johnny Pearson, From the pounding up-tempo of ‘Move, Move, Move’ through the Hammond-heavy ‘Beat Me ‘Til I’m Blue’ and ‘Rocky Mountain Runabout’ (versions of both featuring on the legendary Mohawks ‘The Champ’ album) to the sitar 60s club sound of ‘Delhi Discotheque’ and ‘Come here Calcutta’. Most of these tracks had never been commercially available before this release.

Blow Up presents Exclusive Blend Volume 2 sees Blow Up’s Paul Tunkin entering the vaults of De Wolfe, Amphonic and once again KPM. As with a bulk of Exclusive Blend 1, many of these tracks were receiving their first commercial airing on this album’s release. Originally released in 1997, the album also introduced James Clarke’s Wild Elephants to the world, which was later retitled ‘Blow Up A-Go-Go’ as a thankyou from the writer and became the title track for the successful V2 / Blow Up compilation ‘Blow Up A-Go-Go! Dancefloor Classics from The Legendary Blow Up Club’. This album includes tracks from many great music library theme writers including Keith Mansfield, Alan Hawkshaw, Syd Dale, and Alan Moorhouse.
