Suicide – Fast Money Music

• “Fast Money Music” set to a picture of the reissue album cover. Thanks to 0.96574812.

8.9 “Excellent Electronica from the USA”

From their album “Suicide: Alan Vega · Martin Rev” (Island Records ILPS-7007), released in 1980.

Sonically, the second Suicide record was a tad more polished, and so lost some of the disturbing lo-fi allure which had been so affecting on the debut.

Still, that is a relative complaint for there was much to cherish all the same, I give you exhibit A.

On “Fast Money Music”, Martin Rev’s in yer face manic loops combined with the nervous energy of Alan Vega’s vocal delivery is vintage Suicide.

Alan Vega… 1938 to 2016… still alive in endless time and endless art.
