Romeo Void

Romeo Void is a band I was aware of ("Never Say Never"), but never really thought twice about. At some point I picked up a cassette compilation titled Warm, In Your Coat at a thrift shop, but I never got around to listening to it until recently, when it became a random grab on my way out the door one day. Yes, old-fashioned cassette tapes still get played in my Toyota. Anyway, I was delightfully surprised to learn that I love Romeo Void. They are a bit darker than I had remembered, almost a bit goth. In fact, this track, thier very first single - "White Sweater"(1981) - reminds me a bit of an old Siouxsie and the Banshees gem or something. Deborah Iyall's stream-of-conciousness lyrics and semi-detached vocals glow nicely atop a mess of chugging dry new wave guitar. An enjoyable post-punk stomper complete with Psych Furs sax. Nice one - another lost classic.

If you like "Warm in your coat" you should check out other available albums which are fantastic. http://www.cduniverse.com/search/xx/music/artist/Romeo+Void/a/Romeo+Void.htm

I have an EP with Not Safe and a few other obscure tracks. Brilliant stuff!
