Boomkat Product Review:
For the first time since it’s original release in 1980, Futurismo have put together this reissue of the first solo album by Alan Vega, one half of electro punk legends Suicide.
Well this is overdue: Alan Vega’s landmark solo debut is given the deluxe reissue treatment, giving a second lick of the cherry to a definitive opus from the late, great co-founder of Suicide who passed away in 2016.
It includes the timeless gem Jukebox baby, and we could end it there to be fair. But there’s also gold to found in the shuffling blues of Lonely, the sawdust stomp of Fireball and the jangling Ice Drummer, especially if you like your jeans or leather keks tight af and can’t help pouting at yourself in the mirror at every chance.
Below kelvin, baby.
