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...view item »

Alan Vega & A.R.E. Weapons
See Tha Light / War

The ever-amusing ARE Weapons have finally gone and achieved what seemed to be the purpose of their existance by recording with Alan Vega on this single sided 12" from Blast First Petite. In fairness they've provided him with a decent track to groan his graveyard Elvisisms all over on 'See Tha Light'; a slow beat, sci-fi effects and chimey, tre...view item »

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, ...view item »


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...view item »

Alan Vega, Alex Chilton, Ben Vaughn
Cubist Blues

Alex Chilton (Big Star), Alan Vega (Suicide) and Ben Vaughn (er, mostly solo) made only one album together, intensely improvising together. The result, Cubist Blues, is a darkly atmospheric trip, sounding not quite like anything else. Originally release...view item »

Live at Trans Musicales, Rennes, France, 7th December 1996

Alex Chilton (Big Star), Alan Vega (Suicide) and Ben Vaughn (er, mostly solo) made only one album together, intensely improvising together. The result, Cubist Blues, is a darkly atmospheric trip: Live At Trans Musicales  is the document of...view item »

Alan Vega / The Vacant Lots
Split Single No. 4

This is the fourth in the "Split Single Series" from Fuzz Club Records featuring rock and roll legends paired with new up and coming acts. This 10" comes in an edition of just 400 copies.  So here is legendary Suicide man Alan Vega with Vermont lo-fi psychsters The Vacant Lots. This is Vega's first recording in quite some time ...view item »

Klaxons/Alan Vega/No Bra
Sweetheart/Speedway/Super Subway Comedian

I thought The Klaxons had disappeard off the face of the planet but here they are covering Suicide's 'Sweetheart'. How I feel about this I really dont know. The Alan Vega style vocal trembling comes across as a bit forced. I guess their trying to be faithfull to the original but it comes across a bit karaoke to me. I think I'd have prefered them ju...view item »

Peaches/ Effi Briest/ Alan Vega
Jonny / Universe / No

I'm probably not the best person to be reviewing this as i've never made much time for Suicide and don't really know the tunes presented here. Peaches cover of 'Jonny' is pretty stripped back and to the point with just the original bass line and the whispered vocal left in tact. It only lasts a minute or so but it's kinda cheeky so i'll let it s...view item »

Marc Hurtado & Alan Vega

Sniper is a 2010 collaboration between Etant Donnes man Marc Hurtado and the legendary Alan Vega, crooner-in-chief of Suicide. And Lydia Lunch even adds vocals on one of the track. The results are not far off an updated Suicide, with ...view item »

Gavin Friday & Dave Ball / Thomas Brinkmann / Alan Vega
Ghostrider / Diamonds, Furcoats, Champagne / Puss On The Time Warp

Oh it's another one of these. Gavin Friday (Virgin Prunes) & Dave Ball (Soft Cell) do a very faithful version of 'Ghostrider'... Too faithful some might say. I guess they beef it up a decent amount but it seems a tad pointless to my ears. I saw Kompakt vet Thomas Brinkmann at Primavera the other year but unfortunately his set was blighted by...view item »

Sunn O))) & Pansonic/Alan Vega/Stephen Burroughs
Che /13 Crosses, 16 Blazin' Skulls / Goodbye Dear

I must confess to being disappointed by the latest Blast First Suicide 10". On paper the prospect of Sunn O)) and Pan Sonic collaborating and doing a cover of 'Che' is the sort of thing that makes me get extremely exited. The Sunn O)) lineup here is Joe Preston on vocals, Stephen O'malley, Greg Anderson, Steve Morre on Hammond, Rex Ritter on Moo...view item »

Bruce Springsteen / Alan Vega
Dream Baby Dream

Bruce Springsteen is large. Larger than life. The boss. He's massive. He's also the only person alive that could posibly make a song by NY sleaze terrorists Suicide schmaltzy. Yes, Brucie Bonus spearheads the first in this quite exciting range of celebratory 10"s on Blast First Petite to say happy mofo beeday to Alan Vega who's managed to get ...view item »

Sunn O))) & Pansonic/Alan Vega/Stephen Burroughs
Jukebox Buddha

The JUKEBOX BUDDHA compilation CD on Staubgold is a compilation of tunes made by clever electronic types with their buddha machines. I don't know about you but I came to the conclusion the other week that the buddha machines were a nice idea, but in practice they're a cheap tinny piece of tat with dreadful distorted sound.
