NEXT I play various tracks by suicide, the band whom i was lucky enough to be out front sound engineer for a brief but dazzling spell in the very early eiighties
Suicide is an American electronic protopunk musical duo, intermittently active since 1970 and composed of vocalist Alan Vega and Martin Rev on synthesizers and drum machines. They are an early synthesizer/vocal musical duo.
Never widely popular amongst the general public, Suicide are highly influential: critic Wilson Neate argues that Suicide “would prove as influential as The Clash. The synthpop, techno, and industrial dance sounds of the ’80s and ’90s, and now the new New Wave of electroclash, all gesture back to that foundational album.”
