The Neo-Boys, who came from the ashes of Portland's first all-girl punk
band (Formica and the Bitches) had two proper records in their day:
A self-titled 7"  on Greg Sage's Trap Records in  1981, and the Crumbling
Myths LP on Joe Records in 1982. They also had a couple of songs on the
classic early PDX punk comp 10/29/79, a live LP that also included the
Wipers, and the amazing female-fronted Sado-Nation. The EP in particular
is killer.

Life During Wartime, a weekly PDX punk radio show did a Neo Boys special a
few years ago, which you can still download on the Maximum Rocknroll radio
page: http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/radio/specials/NeoBoys.mp3 -- This
show is completely amazing for either a longtime Neo Boys fan or a
newcomer to the band—it has tons and tons of information about the band, a
great recent interview with bandmembers, as well as lots of music. MRR
also published a print compendium to this interview in issue #262.

As far as I know, there is no CD or vinyl reissue of this band's material
(like their is with Sado-Nation--their dicography CD is totally
essential!). Hopefully there will be soon, as the records are pretty tough
to find.
