Biography

A five-piece band based in
London, and influenced by Berlin-period
Bowie,The Velvet Underground,Neu,Cluster, Can.
Neu Electric comprised Dee
Sebastian (v, real name Derek Morris), Steve
Jadd (gtr, real name Steve Parry), Steve
James Sherlock (sax/clar), Nick Hunt (b) and
Barry Della/Deller (d). Having quickly
attracted a reasonable following on the
synth-dominated London circuit, the group
self-financed the single Lust of Berlin, which was recorded

early in the spring of 1979 and privately
issued in May through the SGS plant on Synesthesia. Housed in a nice picture
cover designed by Nick Wilkinson, the
7” offers LUST OF BERLIN and DISTRACTIONS
two original compositions which
deserve investigation from collectors of
experimental New Wave. The group would
issue a 1980 EP on the Synesthesia imprint
(tracks: COVER GIRL / PRACTICALLY
ISOLATE // CONVERSE OF TAPES /
HAND) in a similar vein, using the slightly
altered (and even more KrautRock flavoured)
moniker Neu Electrikk, as well as
contributing a different recording of LUST OF BERLIN to the
Synth-Pop compilation THE SOME BIZZARE
ALBUM. After the group’s break-up,
Sherlock played with The The and Marc &
The Mambas, while Steve Parry formed
Hwyl Nofio, a group who continued the
sonic experiments first explored with Neu
Electric.
