Suicide

Suicide is an American duo that was one component of the late 1970's punk scene on the Lower East Side of New York City, USA. The band consists of Alan Vega and Martin Rev, who used farfisa organs, synthesizers, and drum machines to create their trademark sound. While widely unconsidered and largely disliked during their beginnings, their 1977 self-titled album is considered to be one of the most influential albums of the punk movement and has influenced countless others, including R.E.M.. The grander influence of Suicide's electronic primitivism can be heard in the later music movements of synth pop, techno, and industrial music.
