Career-Spanning Collection On Limited Edition Blood Red Vinyl 2LP!
Fully Remastered By Denis Blackham At Skye Mastering!
Extensive Liner Notes By Henry Rollins!
"Suicide was the band that refused to die. The concept was so powerful that it kept Vega and Rev on a sporadic collision course of stages and studios for over forty years." -Henry Rollins
Mute / BMG announce Surrender: A Collection by influential electronic-punk duo Suicide. This brand-new, remastered collection spans Alan Vega & Marty Rev's forty-year career and serves as an introduction to their raw, eclectic and inspiring catalog.
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 of Soft Cell, Depeche Mode and The Jesus And Mary Chain, whilst garnering fans in Nick Cave, Jim Thirlwell, M.I.A., Spiritualized, Lydia Lunch, Bobby Gillespie and Savages to name a few.
"Suicide made some of the coolest, most uncompromising music ever inflicted on our species. This gathering of songs is not a 'best of' nor is it a 'definitive' all-you-need-to-know compilation. It is an introduction that will hopefully compel you to explore the albums." -Henry Rollins
Presented as a limited edition double album on 140g blood red vinyl in an embossed outer and mirror-board inner gatefold, this unique package also 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, Vega's partner, Liz Lamere, and Rollins, includes tracks from their classic debut album, Suicide (1977), to their final outing, American Supreme (2002). The LP 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.
