Neon Christ (Alice In Chains, Etc.) Reveal Details For “1984” Record Store Day Release

Neon Christ, the band featuring William DuVall (Alice In Chains, etc.), Jimmy Demer (Gardens Of.., Accidents), Danny Lankford (Gardens Of.., Accidents) and Randy DuTeau (Gardens Of..), will be reissuing a deluxe remastered edition of their 1984 sessions on vinyl as part of Record Store Day (June 12). The effort will also be available digitally on Bandcamp. Non-Record Store formats are also being planned for a later date via Southern Lord.

“1984” Track Listing:

01. “Parental Suppression”
02. “The Draft Song”
03. “Winding”
04. “Bad Influence”
05. “Neon Christ”
06. “We Mean Business”
07. “Yoof”
08. “It’s Mine”
09. “Doom”
10. “After”
11. “The Knife That Cuts So Deep”
12. “Ashes To Ashes”
13. “Blind Patriot”
14. “The Death They’ll Give You”

Side one of “1984” features Neon Christ’s original seven-inch EP, while side two features four tracks from another session that same year. DuVall commented:

“The studio I went to in Nashville to remaster the audio is called Welcome To 1979, aptly named because it’s like entering a time warp in the best possible way.

It’s becoming increasingly rare and miraculous to find a facility anywhere in the world that can do all-analogue audio mastering for vinyl LPs. What’s additionally amazing (for all my fellow audio nerds out there) is that Welcome To 1979 also does lacquer plating right there on-site. I know of no other place in America that does recording, mixing, mastering, lacquer cutting, and lacquer plating all under one roof. As if that’s not enough, they also manufacture and refurbish tape machines. Pretty incredible.

Remastering the 1984 Neon Christ recordings has been very enlightening and fulfilling. I hadn’t listened to that music in a studio atmosphere since back when it was originally recorded. It was nice hanging out with those kids again. I was sixteen writing those songs.

Neon Christ is quintessential youth music from a tumultuous time, both in our own lives and in the world at large. It documents the birth of a new music and culture that would influence everything that came afterward. We loved being a part of that emerging scene. We’re even more proud now of the contributions we and so many of our friends made. The energy and emotions we captured remain timeless.

I had planned to do a proper Neon Christ reissue through my label, DVL Recordings, this year. It must have been the right time because, as soon as I’d made up my mind to do it, Greg from Southern Lord reached out about doing exactly the same thing. I suggested we join forces. I admire what the Southern Lord label has achieved. Suffice it to say, all of us in Neon Christ are extremely honoured that there’s any interest at all in what we did so many years ago.”
