Label: Blast First
Format: CD

intro

Unnerving first album in ten years from New York's pioneers of electro punk, Suicide


The first album in 10 years from the granddaddies of splattersynthcore. The music is noticeably less oppressive than the one-note synapse-shredders of Alan Vega and Martin Rev’s late seventies oeuvre. There’s no 'Frankie Teardrop'-style gouge in reality, but you do get Vega snarling “And the nightmare came, and the nightmare came…Cos he fucked her! Cos her fucked her!” amidst a litany of dead beat poet mantras, over music written for cyanide-capsule commercials. Suicide are now regarded as a slightly quaint anarcho-anachronism, but listening to this stuff still makes you feel like your skin is being unpicked thread by thread.
