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. 

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.

Martin Rev
Stigmata

Suicide synth-hero Martin Rev treated the world to this solo album back in 2009. And you might be surprised by how it sounds: none of that Suicide pummel here. Instead, Stigmata is a set of seemingly religiously-inspired pieces for synthetic orchestra: the sound of some strange future space-church perhaps? This curious work is reissued on Blast First Petite.

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.
