From the wreckage of roughly 20 nameless and faceless Los Angeles bands, Neon Horse arose as a collective of session musicians, home studio producers, waiters, and postal workers who found a commonality among themselves as background players in the big picture of the L.A. rock scene. After passing each other at dozens of shows – sometimes only to lend a hand with a busted chord or broken string, sometimes to keep an eye on the gear in the parking lot – and sharing countless tables for after hours war stories, the rather clichéd “inevitable” occurred and Neon Horse was formed. Citing influences broad in range – from the Rock of AC/DC, Oingo Boingo, and even the Stooges to the Sass of Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, and the Eurythmics – the band set out to make music they could play with a straight face. Eclectic and manic, Neon Horse is a band of Rock and Roll roots in the purest form: An ever changing, mercurial, addictive – and at times, slightly bizarre – continuation of Rock’s re-inventive nature. Neon Horse is back for their sophomore release entitled, "Haunted Horse: Songs of Love, Defiance and Delusion."

Horse rides again!| Posted March 17, 2011
After stumbling upon Neon Horse I was impressed to say the least with their debut, but if there was anything it lacked was depth in a spiritual tone, this was corrected with the release of Haunted Horse:Songs of Love, Defiance and Delusion. Now to be honest I wasn't expecting it (maybe because of the album title) however when I heard it I was blown away, song after song had deep lyrics. "Follow the Man" and "Some Folks" are just two that when heard blow you away with sound and message. Now before I make it out to sound nothing like the original, they're songs that beckon to the debut, "Cell-O-Phone","Chaing Gang, Bang Bang" are two that bring back the fun (if right choice of word) catchyness.
I highly recommend the album, Neon Horse is a refreshing sound from the mundane that alot of times we find Christian bands goin into. It's never a dull moment when listening to Neon Horse.
