Lex Records presents ‘Praxis Makes Perfect’, the sophomore collaborative album from Boom Bip and Gruff Rhys (of Super Furry Animals) under the moniker Neon Neon.
‘Praxis Makes Perfect’ is the follow-up to ‘Stainless Style’, the 2008 Mercury Music Prize nominated concept album about the life of Motor City magnate John Delorean.
‘Praxis Makes Perfect’ continues the aesthetic of slick drivetime retro pop songs, and comes complete with a concept: the amazing true story of billionaire Italian publishing high roller Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, who led a secret life as a communist guerilla.
‘Praxis Makes Perfect’ includes contributions from Cate Le Bon, Josh Klinghoffer (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Sabrina Salemo (Boys Boys Boys) and Asia Argento.
The limited edition 2CD book bound format includes a 4 track bonus disc, ‘Years Of Lead EP’. The additional tracks draw heavily on Berlin-era Bowie for inspiration, providing a contrast to the upbeat retro pop of the album. Only 500 copies of the limited CD available for USA.
