Progrography

Romeo Void
Around 1980 a new wave of "alternative" artists flooded the market, some of whom stuck around (U2, Echo & The Bunnymen) and many of whom didn't (Classix Nouveaux, The Flying Lizards, Polyrock, etc.). Romeo Void lasted three albums, long enough to enjoy hits with "Never Say Never" and "A Girl In Trouble." The band was fronted by Deborah Iyall, a Rubenesque exception to a rule of would-be models (Deborah Harry, Joan Jett, Siouxsie Sioux) where women were concerned. The band played tight, twitchy music reminiscent of Talking Heads and Gang of Four, but were never seen as more than a novelty by most. Iyall released a solo album in 1985, Strange Language.
