Suicide Vinyl, CD & tapes by Suicide at Norman Records

Suicide were a purring machine running on nothing more than broken synthesizers, primitive drum machines, lyric detailing the lives of those on the edge, and on-stage violence. An angry, scuzzy, aggressive outfit born of New York's mean streets, thei...read more »

Suicide
Ghost Riders

In which terrifying proto electronic duo Suicide are captured live and in concert in 1981. It was originally released in 1986 on ROIR who have re-issued it for your nighttime terrors. They blast through such churns as Ghost Rider, Dream Baby Dream and tears, the live performance electrifying even more their all electronic sound. 

Suicide
Half Alive

ROIR have kindly vinylized this collection of live recordings and home studio demos by frightening electronic duo Suicide. It was originally released on cassette only in 1981 and although a CD was eventually manufactured it has never seen the light of day on vinyl. Mostly demos with a couple of live tracks tacked on this is a nice companion to their relatively few studio albums.   

Suicide
Suicide

The 1977 debut by Alan Vega and Martin Rev is a conceptual and sonic assault. Vega’s pithy lyrics and echoed rockabilly vocals over Rev’s seething, primitive beatbox and fuzzed-up synths are a simple and devastatingly effective combination. Ghost Rider and Rocket USA is a killer double whammy to open the album. Frankie Teardrop makes your neck hair stand up, and Springsteen fave Cheree calms you down again.

Martin Rev
Cheyenne

Long overdue re-issue of Cheyenne, the third solo album from Suicide’s Martin Rev. Although it was released in 1991, its origins went all the way back to the recording of Alan Vega / Martin Rev eleven years previously. Infusing the street-level immediacy of Suicide’s proto-electro-punk with pastoral pop-inspired sounds, Cheyenne is a lost gem. 

Martin Rev
Clouds of Glory

As one half of electro-punk pioneers Suicide, Martin Rev was responsible for some of the most influential and significant music of the late Seventies and early Eighties. Less well-known, however, is his solo career, something that this re-issue of 1985’s contemplative Clouds of Glory (Rev’s second outing) seeks to put right.

Alan Vega
Alan Vega

As one half of electro-punk pioneers Suicide, Alan Vega deconstructed punk and was central to the birth of post-punk, new wave and most that followed. On the side he worked on his solo efforts, focusing more on rock and roll and rockabilly, stripping it and pulling it apart. Not re-pressed since the 1980s, comes with a huge A1 screen-printed poster and notes from Henry Rollins.

Suicide
First Rehearsal Tapes

Check out this chunk of alternative music history: Suicide’s first ever rehearsal, captured on tape in 1977 as Alan Vega and Martin Rev were just starting up their legendary dirty NYC synth-punk project. These formative recordings contain quite a lot of what was to come in embryonic form, so you really gotta hear it. Reissued to vinyl by Superior Viaduct.

Martin Rev
Demolition 9

Ninth solo album from the Suicide legend that is Martin Rev! Demolition 9 is a very varied suite made up of thirty-four short tracks, an approach that allows Rev to explore stacks of different sounds and moods. It's like a shattered tour through the wild mind of Rev, veering from slamming percussion to moody ambience to much else besides. Demolition 9 is out on Atlas Realisations.

Suicide
Alan Vega Martin Rev

The follow-up to Suicide's 1977's legendary eponymous trail blazer. 'Alan Vega Martin Rev' (named after the two members of Suicide, in case that isn't obvious) was originally released in 1980 and produced by Cars frontman Ric Ocasek. A lighter and fluffier animal than its predecessor, but still bearing a healthy kick of venom. Reissued on vinyl.

Suicide
Cheree

Cheree is an entirely crucial tune by the legendary Suicide. Martin Rev’s relentless synths pound on while Alan Vega’s breathy moans croon his love for the titular Cheree. Released as a single, with non-album track ‘I Remember’ on the b-side, on tasty red vinyl. On Superior Viaduct.

Suicide
Dream Baby Dream

I had absolutely no idea that 'Dream Baby Dream' didn't appear on any Suicide full length album. This is the first time in fact that this classic song has been re-issued on 7".  For the uninitiated Suicide kind of sound like Elvis Presley singing over a Trio backing track and this simple song is wonderfully effective.

Martin Rev
Martin Rev

Reissue of ex-Suicide member Martin Rev's self-titled debut. Rev shows his lighter and darker sides on these synth heavy reverberators. The krautrockian drum machines are juxtaposed by his doomy meanderings, assisted by some soft melodic loops to create a real sense of space and depth. This vinyl LP is getting the reissue treatment from Superior Viaduct.
