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.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 28th November 2017
For those who hero worship NIN, Ministry, the early '80's electronic era, Suicide are major pioneers, along with German experimentalists Can and the always funny but incredibly genius work of The Residents. One complaint is this album has only really four new songs, those being "Diamonds...", "Fast Money Music", "Be Bop Kid" and "Super Subway Comedian" (all likeable tracks for me, especially Super Subway Comedian).
The rest are all reworkings of older songs, done at least once before in one form or the other, live or demo material.
