Inspired by the early works of electronic music pioneers such as The Normal, Fad Gadget, Gary Numan, Soft Cell and others, NEONGRAU delivers with his first full length album ‘spam n space’ on das drehmoment records the ideal soundtrack for urban catwalks and cult b-movies.
With a respectful nod to the past and a wary eye on the future, NEONGRAU sways to an ice cool, minority groove. While in the cut-up tradition of William Burroughs and in line with the nightmarish visions of David Cronenberg’s Videodrome – both, music and lyrics are the result of a dangerous flirtation with technology.
Intent on fucking up the grey masses by appropriating text from the daily deluge of spam-mails and by lovingly dissecting the rotten heart of daytime talk shows, NEONGRAU combines ultra exotic old school sounds with biting sarcasm – responding with venom to the banal, paranoia-inducing marketing slogans and empty headed drivel that creep unnoticed into our everyday lives via television and the internet.
Fixing the accelerated decline of popular culture with a benevolent stare – NEONGRAU surfs the radio waves like a modern day High Plains Drifter, producing hymns for slackers and fashion victims alike.
