Biography

Suicide is an American electronic protopunk musical duo, intermittently active since 1970 and composed of vocalist Alan Vega and Martin Rev on synthesizers and drum machines. They are an early synthesizer/vocal musical duo.

Never widely popular amongst the general public, Suicide are highly influential: critic Wilson Neate argues that Suicide "would prove as influential as The Clash. The synthpop, techno, and industrial dance sounds of the 1980s and 1990s, and now the new New Wave of electroclash, all gesture back to that foundational album."

In a November 1970 flyer the band was the first ever to use the phrase "punk music" to advertise a concert.
