Suicide - Surrender CD/2LP
A brand new collection from influential electronic-punk duo Suicide.
This remastered collection spans Alan Vega and Marty Rev’s forty year career and serves as an introduction to their raw, eclectic and inspiring catalogue. Although the band barely received any credit during their career, Suicide are cited as one of the most inspirational bands of the 1970s, influencing the likes Soft Cell, Depeche Mode and The Jesus And Mary Chain, whilst garnering fans in Nick Cave, Jim Thirlwell (Foetus), M.I.A., Spiritualized, Lydia Lunch, Bobby Gillespie and Savages to name a few.
The package contains a set of brand new, extensive and extraordinary liner notes by long serving fan / collaborator and NYC stalwart Henry Rollins.
The tracklisting, collated by Marty Rev, Liz Lamere and Henry Rollins, includes tracks from their classic debut album, "Suicide" (1977), to their final outing, "American Supreme"(2002). It also features two brand new, unheard tracks Girl (Unreleased Version) and Frankie Teardrop (First Version).
The package has been full remastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering.
