Ode aan the cult band to rule all cult bands. Dat laatste is althans waar Nobakht de lezer van probeert te overtuigen. En Suicide is wel degelijk een van de meest unieke en kleurrijke bands uit de muziekgeschiedenis. Ze waren op en top New Yorks en beïnvloed door bands als The Velvet Underground en The Silver Apples begonnen ze rond 1970 reeds uit te pakken met hun radicale electro/rock-’n-roll-experimenten.

A quick read, solid information on a legendary band. My only qualm is I wish it delved more into the human element, instead of just "the work."

However, the chronology was fantastic, and perhaps conveyed humanity would have tainted their mystique. Recommended.

My favorite electronic punk band, never got the recognition they deserved. They were pioneers (and put on an amazing live show.)
