Album Review

Punk bands, of course, were not meant to last, and even if Romeo Void, with their dance beats and warm sax sound, as well as a distinctive lead singer with a gift for soundbite lyrics, seemed to have more commercial potential than most, their five-year, three-album existence was long enough to make some noise, make some compromises, and make it out alive. This 15-song, 65-minute compilation is notable not only for the signature songs — "White Sweater," "Myself to Myself," "A Girl in Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing)," and, especially, "Never Say Never" — but also for revealing the range of a band that seemed at the time mostly a backdrop for Debora Iyall. Romeo Void were a band, and from the evidence of this set, a good one, too.

The raw brass of Debora Iyall is best evidenced in "Never Say Never" and the omitted song "Your Life Is A Lie", a terrible oversight. She was never subtle lyrically but always entertaining and sometimes raw.

The unforgettable chorus of their best-known song, 1981's "Never Say Never," the phrase on its own makes the song sound like some kind of shock-value novelty, and indeed, that's probably how many people remember it. Yet a careful listen to the...
