|Suicide’s landmark self-titled LP was originally released
in 1977, seven years after the group’s initial conception as
part of the performance art scene on the Lower East Side.
It is hard to overstate the importance of the seven tracks on
Suicide, which paved the way for punk, industrial, hip hop,
noise and beyond.
“Ghost Rider” accelerates with brutal anguish and desire
for everything rock ’n’ roll. Martin Rev’s utterly singular
“instrument” pounds out a synthetic soundscape, while
Alan Vega’s over-saturated vocals obsess over motorcycle
getaways. “Rocket U.S.A.” distills the duo’s dynamic
power down to a ghostly pulse, while the psycho-drama of
“Frankie Teardrop” (Bruce Springsteen’s all-time favorite
song) delves even further into cinematic storytelling and,
at the same time, clears the room at the end of the night.
Superior Viaduct is honored to present Suicide—restored
from the original mixes, fully sanctioned by the band
and with liner notes by Thurston Moore. If there can be a
quintessential New York band, it is without a doubt Suicide
