ALAN VEGA [Suicide]


It wasn't until the 1990s and early 2000s, when the synthesis of punk and electronica really came to full flower, that the influence of Alan Vega and his pioneering minimal-electro act, Suicide, was truly evident.
Suicide emerged in the late '70s as part of the CBGB's punk scene, but their experimental, synth-based sound leaned more toward the future (presaging post-punk, new wave, electronica, and dance rock).
After the dissolution of Suicide, Vega continued as a solo artist.
STATION (2007) shows that Vega hasn't mellowed with age.
As sonically adventurous as anything he's released, STATION blends spoken-word performance, pulsing electronic beats, industrial textures, and elements of trance, disco, avant garde, and psychedelia.
