I'd like to thank Chris, and Bruce, from the great My Lifes A Jigsaw Blog for the info here. Originally called Acropolis,The Neat hailed from leeds in 1978. This was their lone 45, and was recorded in April 79, 1000 copies sold. They broke up in the early 80's, although the nucleus of the band metamorphosed in to Zed warren six, who released a 45 on mjb records.
Sadly, David Parkinson, who played synths, wrote and produced the great Powerpop classic "Hormones In Action", died on August the 17th, 2010. Before his involvement with The Neat, David had a band called the "Sneakers", who released one single. He was also involved with bands such as; the "Mirror Boys", and "Zoo Boutique" which featured Davids then wife Emmie and a solo single released on the Ariola label under the name "Cuba". David eventually gave up music for teaching.
This information was emailed to me by Davids good freind, Chris Marshall, who at the time was in the process of getting a tribute together for the Bradford newspaper, The Telegraph and Argus, on Sept. 9th.
