Music Box: Romeo Void

Romeo Void "Benefactor"

Best remembered for the quintessential '80s anti-love song, "Never Say Never," Romeo Void's sophomore album captured the band at its peak. Debora Iyall's intriguingly remote yet utterly intimate vocals and romance-free lyrics surrounded by Benjamin Bossi's lonely saxaphone provided the soundtrack for anyone who ever thought that love wasn't within their reach.

Kudos to WoundedBird for just getting the rights to this 24-year-old album for a first-time CD reissue of the album, which includes the 1981 EP "Never Say Never" as a bonus.

Especially: "Undercover Kept," "Orange" and "Flashflood" (and the uncut "Never Say Never," of course)
