With Noise Rock in the mind and Electronica as the new fascinating source of inspiration ne:o was founded in the year 2004 in Dresden, Germany as a quartet first. With easiness, passion and being nerds the four started to get into sounds and beats to create their specific songs.
Soon they had enough material for the first two releases "ne:omuzic" (2004) und "musikkritik" (2005) which both came out on the netlabel tonatom. In this time ne:o played a few nice concerts as well.
From 2006 to 2008 the band hid away in the rehearsal room to work on their third album, which was released in early 2009 on aaahh-records with the title "illoj". Meanwhile a quintet, the band break up surprisingly at the end of the same year. Later in 2011 a live album was published on both above-mentioned labels together called "direkt". It's based on the recording of the band's very last concert.
The first 3 releases were released on CD (part-way very nice and handmade digipaks) as well. You can still get copies.
