Product Notes

Limited 180 gm white vinyl LP pressing including digital download. Contained within a neon printed jacket that utilizes scans from the original Curtis Knapp negatives, is a huge A1 screen-printed poster and brand new liner notes by musician and friend Henry Rollins. For the first time since it's original release in 1980, Futurismo are proud to announce the reissue of the first solo self-titled LP by Alan Vega, one half of electro punk legends Suicide. Alan Vega's self-titled LP is a piece of work drenched in the musical influences of his teenage years, and an album that welded an unexpected hit in the stand out opener 'Jukebox Babe', a track of frantic rockabilly delivery and sparse instrumentation that seduces the listener by sculpting a sound that owed little to the 50's revival yet everything to the sensibilities of rock 'n' roll futurism. Echoing the Suicide staple 'Ghost Rider' - itself a construct of repetitive rhythms and minimalist drones, punctuated by a classic vocal delivery that harnessed Gene Vincent, Elvis and the idols of Vega's youth - 'Jukebox Babe' was the cornerstone to an artistic expression that Alan Vega continued to experiment with and implement throughout his solo self-titled LP and recordings beyond. With Suicide he and Martin Rev where responsible for the deconstruction of punk rock, a catalyst for the musical and aesthetic blueprints of what became post-punk, industrial rock and even synth pop. On his self-titled solo outing he takes a side step into the deconstruction of rock 'n' roll itself.
