Suicide - Shadazz

This is electronic, synth band SUICIDE made up of Alan Vega and Martin Rev. Active since 1971 the duo prove that synths and drum machines have been around a lot longer than this whole 'chillwave' genre leads the 'downloading' era to believe. Their 1977 self-titled; a melange of 'lofi' electro synth-pop laid the foundation for the music of today.

And these guys did it good!

Have a feeling Ariel Rosenberg may be a fan.

Back in 2008 UK's The Horrors covered this exact song. Not bad. But not better. Check it here.

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.

Ye Faithful
