It's a critically acclaimed concept album made in collaboration with Gruff Rhys about the 'colorful' life of playboy automobile impresario John Delorean...

NEW SOLO EP
Boom Bip is back with a super-hot new EP in which he develops some of the harder, faster electro themes that have appeared throughout his previous albums.
Punchy beats and lush melodies that are trademarks of Bip's sound remain steadfast, however the influences of perhaps even 80s Italo prog-soundtrackers such as Goblin creep into the uptempo synth lines and there's more than a hint of grimey percussive baseline to guarantee dancefloor action.

= BOOM BIP + GRUFF RHYS
Boom Bip & Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals fame first worked together on a track for Bip’s 2005 album ‘Blue Eyed in the Red Room’. Following huge support from fans, radio and press, Do's and the Dont's was released as a ltd 7”.
Both artists agreed that they should do a full album and busy schedules have finally permitted, however nobody guessed that a week in a London studio would build the foundations of a concept album based around the life of 80s automobile impresario John Delorean.
Moving from retro inspired drive-time pop to incredibly slick hip hop, Neon Neon are joined by a various guests including Fat Lip from The Pharcyde, Spank Rock and more TBC… join Neon Neon's MySpace for progress reports.

'BLUE EYED IN THE RED ROOM'
Boom Bip's latest album 'Blue Eyed in the Red Room' is out now. here are a couple of excerpts from reviews :
“starts out like the mellowest Sonic Youth album ever and culminates in a clear-eyed analysis of the mechanics of romance by US indie queen Nina Nastasia… maverick” **** Observer Music Monthly
“a canvas for his yearning, but seldom cloying harmonies… playing his own instruments has lent the sound more body and a rougher edge” The Wire
