this information helps you
Suicide, American Supreme (2002, Rhapsody)
Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel, various tracks (MySpace)
Indian Jewelry, Totaled (out today)
American Supreme is not Suicide at its best. It hits me like Alan Vega was skulking around his loft nursing the idea that he created rap music and that a couple speed freaks in the vicinity egged this on: You did create rap music! and so Martin Rev was awakened from his hibernation chamber and summoned to make something now, theoretically for 2002's now, except that the only calendar in the loft was a Wax Trax calender from 1989, resulting with something that comes across as De La Soulless. And in that light, it's kind cool.
♫ Suicide, "Power Au Go Go" (Rhapsody)
Duet for Theremin & Lap Steel played in New Orleans last night. I didn't go. I realize this information helps you not at all now.
Natalie Elliot did a fine review of the Indian Jewelry record at the Oxford American site, spurring on this whole Suicide attack, and if you clicked on that site to open this page and then click on here to open theirs, you might tear the space-time continuum and that will only make Suicide do another record, so keep that in mind.
♫ Suicide, "Child It's a New World" (Rhapsody)
