the latest album is finished....it's titled Protocol and set to be released on the 20th of March 2006 on the Planet Mu label....12 tracks of electronic fragmented fury and beauty and the rants of a weird and wondrous list of collaborators including lydia lunch, alan vega from suicide, terry edwards, dalek and more.....sleeve and booklet art has been done by that special fella franko b.....

I wasn't really into the first Uniform album, but with Vega and Lydia Lunch involved I'm pretty sure I'll end up snagging it.

Suicide is featured in a documentary titled "Punk: Attitude" directed by Don Letts. It has some short interviews of Martin Rev and brief live footage of them playing "Radiation" and another song which I can't remember at the moment. Rev's still using an organ and Vega hits the mic into his face a few times, so I'm guessing it's from the 70's.

new VVV album [Jul. 6th, 2005|02:37 pm]

VVV: Resurrection River
MEGO 075CD

Taken from Forced Exposure:
This is the follow up to the 1998 VVV album Endless, which was released by Mute. Recorded over three years ago, this monumental meeting finally sees release on Mego. Resurrection River documents the May 2002 meeting of Suicide member and electronic pioneer Alan Vega with sine-wave surfers Pan Sonic (Finlanders Mika Vainio and Ilpo Väisänen). Together, the three are a trembling triumvirate of sound. The work, nine tracks in all, is named after the river in Alaska, a river created by the power of glaciers. It's no coincidence, perhaps, that the work itself is as glacial as Vega's howlingly human intonation giving way to the heavy influence of Vainio's pointillism and Väisänen's devotion to decay. This is post-techno sound art colliding with and amplified by endless throbs of voltage. A tribute to electromotive force from three standard-bearers of noise collage. Of course, such a release can only be credited to Mego, the Austrian label that brought you the Endless Summer of Fennesz, the sound experiments of Jim O'Rourke, Tujiko Noriko and another summit-like collaboration: Ghost Orchid from Zeena Parkins and Ikue Mori. After immersing yourself in this remarkable recording, VVV might well stand for Veni, Vidi, Vici. They came, they saw, they blew out your bass cones. All tracks by Alan Vega, Mika Vainio, Ilpo Väisänen; Recorded at 6/8 Studios, New York, May 2002.

"stay alive" [Jun. 16th, 2005|03:36 pm]

There's a song that Suicide has been closing out their recent gigs with, known as "Stay Alive," "Staying Alive" and "Friday Night Fever." I absolutely love that track and I don't think I can wait much longer for a studio version. Therefore, I'm asking if anyone has a MP3 copy of the song (perhaps from one of the live shows) that they might be able to provide me with. I don't use Soulseek or any of the file sharing programs, but I'd accept it via email without a problem.

Thanks in advance!

Martin Rev - Mari [Jun. 7th, 2005|04:09 pm]

Hey, does anyone have an mp3 of the track "Mari", done by Martin Rev around 1980, I think, when he was doing solo stuff? It's the first track on this album:

The new Raveonettes album, "Pretty in Black", is now out. Martin Rev appears on three of the tracks...

Another featured player on the album is Martin Rev, keyboardist for one of Sune's favorite bands, the pioneering electro proto-punk duo Suicide, who plays on "Uncertain Times," "You Say You Lie," and "Here Comes Mary." "He brought over all his sound modules and we hooked them up to my Midi keyboard, which he almost totally destroyed in a creative frenzy," Sune says.

Here's a pic of the group with Marty taken from their MySpace profile:

hi all. i'm about done half way through the suicide book, and so far i'm not too happy with the material. no doubt it says alot about the coming-about of the band... but i really want to find out more about their gears, am i asking too much or people out there are having the same opinion?

by the way, thanks for the info on the drum machines. those old organ rhythm machines are hard to run into... my search continues.
