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 best band you've never heard
A little old punk band from the 80's- this compilation runs the band from punk roots to big label artist with most of the highlights. But if you like this the bands' major album "Instincts" is a must have. Iyall wrote "a Girl in Trouble" in response to "Billie Jean" which ruled the 1983 airwaves. It is a fabulous song, and the entire cd kicks it.
okay compilation but incomplete
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.
