Win a pair of tickets to Neon Neon‘s first Dublin headline gig in 5 years, this Thursday in The Button Factory.
Recorded in Wales, California and Italy, Praxis Makes Perfect follows Neon Neon’s 2008, Mercury-shortlisted debut, Stainless Style; a concept album based on the life of roguish motoring mogul John DeLorean. Guests on this sequel include two previous Neon Neon co-conspirators in Josh Klinghoffer of Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Cardiff’s Cate Le Bon, plus Italian pop sensation Sabrina Salerno and actress Asia Argento. Salerno–best known for her multi-million selling 80s anthem Boys (Summertime Love)–duets with Rhys on Shopping (I Like To), a celebration of Feltrinelli’s commercial savvy and retail empire. Argento’s various vocal contributions include a reading from Carlo Feltrinelli’s Senior Service biography of his father–the book that provided the initial inspiration for Praxis Makes Perfect–on poignant curtain closer Ciao Feltrinelli.
