Mystery Supergroup Neon Horse Coming in May
The band first met their larger-than-life frontman back in the winter of 2005 at the recently closed nightclub Teddy’s inside the old Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. After an uncomfortable encounter involving Norman and a four-foot length of chain in his hand, the trio agreed to meet for what would be the first official band rehearsal. Two songs later the lineup was settled and Neon Horse was born. In the tradition of their humble beginnings, the members of Neon Horse prefer to leave their identities a mystery. With the exception of establishing Norman as the face of the group, the band simply wishes to be known as: Neon Horse.
Neon Horse exhibits a wide-ranging sound that takes the rock of disparate influences AC/DC, Oingo Boingo and the Stooges and partners it with the flare of Depeche Mode, Bauhaus and the Sisters of Mercy to create a sound all its own. The uniquely bizarre nature of its singer shines through on every track of the group's self-titled debut, especially on the album’s opening track “Cuckoo!” Eclectic and manic, this is a band that displays rock'n'roll in the purest form: an ever changing, mercurial and addictive continuation of Rock’s re-inventive nature.
The video for “Cuckoo!” will be released to the public in the coming weeks, with the album to follow on May 8th. While the band aims for anonymity, the video is reported to show some very familiar faces of the rock world. Will the video give away the identities of our cloaked heroes? Stay tuned...
