Dream Baby Dream by Suicide
When I first saw the lineup for this year's Catskills edition of the All Tomorrow's Parties festival, all my excitement centered on one thing: the prospect of seeing the near-mythical NYC duo Suicide perform their (your-favorite-superlative-here) first album on the bizarre spaceship stage in the corrugated metal galaxy that is the famed Stardust Ballroom at Kutsher's Resort. Such glory having come to pass, we're thrilled that Alan Vega and Martin Rev have consented to our sharing two tracks from their set with you.
Suicide were in a playful mood for this show, with Martin Rev
gleefully pounding tonal fist-clusters on his synths, and Alan Vega
doing a slow menacing prowl in his track suit and twitching along to
his every echo-laden howl and yelp. -Scott Williams / WFMU Oct 2009
