Neon Judgement - 1981 - Suffering (tape) (BE)
The Neon Judgement was a Belgian new wave band.
The band was started in Leuven in 1981 by Dirk Da Davo and TB Frank.
The band briefly stopped performing in 1998, but reformed in 2004 and started playing live again to promote a series of remixes and rereleases of their material. The touring continues into 2006, with the band promising on their homepage that, "Live, The Neon Judgement will continue to give art terrorism a good name, finding new ways of marrying noise and beauty, machines and magic."
Nowadays Dirk Da Davo is also active in the side project Neon Electronics, for which he started his own record label Dancedelic-D and he both reworks old classics and composes new material. Both Neon Electronics and the original band have also joined Belgian community Je m'en fish.
Out on September 10 via Pias is The Neon Judgement's Redbox. The release comes after the success of the 100% vintage "Box" 2cd released back in October 2005. The Redbox audio work mainly contains the band's work during the second part of the 80s. This time the cd gets flavored with remix work from such acts as David Carretta (Awful Day rmx), Blackstrobe (13.13 rmx), Lifelike (Miss Brown rmx) and Helmut Kraft (Chinese black rmx). The Redbox release also holds a brand new recording, namely a cover version of "Heroes" (David Bowie/Brian Eno). The song will be released as a cd single around the end of August. In related news the band will perform its first full album ever (the entire album 1981-1984 in the same running order as on the album) exclusively on September 21, 2007 in the Brussels (Belgium) venue Ancienne Belgique.
Back in November, 2005, the Belgian duo The Neon Judgement did a show at the Machina Festival at the Broadway Club in São Paulo. Machine Festival celebrated the first eight years of the site FiberOnline and the launch of the label Fiber Records. The event gathered about 1.300 people. Fiber Records released the DVD "The Neon Judgement – Live at Machina Festival" in 200 including the whole concert or 13 songs.
