Suicide - Suicide (first album 1977)

Hey everybody. Here is the stuff you can't miss. Another one brilliant gem. Absolute classic. Essential. Masterpiece. Here is the first Suicide album. Suicide is unique. Yes, I know that the "Silver Apples" was the first duo in that genre and they got their records earlier than Suicide, but they didn't have the punky spirit inside, and great image. Alan Vega is a truly shaman. He always was on psychedelic substances on his shows, just look at his eyes. And his voice, his manner, he got a giant strong charisma. I don't know english so good to desribe all that I want to say about Suicide music, so just listen it.

In 1977, a band called SUICIDE took nihilist minimalism further than punk would dare, aiming to scare your neighbours with nothing more than stark keyboards, a drum machine and whisper-shriek-yelp vocals. Being a fan of Ghost Rider the Marvel Comics hero, I of course took a liking to the sinister opening track that bears his name: "America, America is killing its youth" is not the stuff of Nicholas Cage blockbusters, however. This is repetitive, three-chord "new wave" stripped to its bones before new wave even existed. It lays the blueprint for industrial rock as well, though it doesn't so much rock as ominously sway, powered by creaky pistons instead of slaughterhouse guitars. The music brings to mind an eyeless, earless, armless genetically-engineered troglodyte being driven down a conveyor built by robotic hands. This is a New World D.A.F. you can't dance to, a subterranean STOOGES, beatnik poetry transmitted back in time through radio sometime after World War III, a Ballardian nightmare for your ears.- peacedogman.com

if you like this, aside from alan vega's solo work, (which is just stunning) there's a great recording he did with alex chilton and ben vaughn called cubist blues; if you don't have that, try to track it down---it's fantastic.

Loop does a great cover of Rocket USA

This album ist one of my favorites, a milestone for progressive electronical music. It stands (for me) in one line with the early Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, SPK, D.A.F. and 39 Clocks.

Thanks for sharing.

Afternoon, fill.

You mentioned the possibility of uploading The Second Album along with American Supreme? I would really appreciate the former, as it is impossible to find.
