Neon Christ


Neon Christ were a band from Atlanta, Georgia that released one ten-song self-titled 7" in 1984 and a double 7" (containing 8 songs from the first single, their song "Ashes To Ashes" from the PEACE compilation and 3 unreleased tracks) in 1990. The members went on to other bands that I don't know that much about (including Gardens Of and The Go Devils) but the oddest tidbit I've found is that guitar player William Kip Duvall went on to co-write the #1 (??) hit "I Know" for Dionne Farris (of Arrested Development). Currently he works with Comes With The Fall and lives in Los Angeles. These songs from the double seven inch show how the band can switch it up from total thrash to more melodic material (and Ashes To Ashes is still a monster of a song).

Nice post.
I guess these guys got back together and did a one-off show in Atlanta back in mid november of last year.
I missed the show by one day while on the road...damn.

There are photos posted of the reunion if anyone wants to check them out at www.spontaneous.com/neonchrist.html
I think it also talks about it being a benefit show, etc.

I would love to hear all of their stuff. Wonder why it never was reissued on CD?!

Does anybody have the Neon Christ song Savior from some tape only comp from Atlanta from the late 80's (or maybe early 90's)?

Possible Neon Christ show in January '06? Stay tuned. You can expect a steady stream of material to filter out over the next year.

Kip Duvall was in B'LAST! (SantaCruz)
for a short time. He has a song credit
on one of their LP's.It Makes sense since he was a fan of Greg Ginn and played a clear Dan Armstrong guitar.
