Suicide (Alan Vega and Martin Rev)
Suicide is an American electronic musical duo, intermittently active since 1970 and composed of vocalist Alan Vega and Martin Rev on synthesizers and drum machines. The group's music made use of repetitive electronic instrumentation and primitive drum machines, and their early performances were confrontational and often ended in violence.
Suicide was among the first to use the phrase punk music in an advertisement for a concert in 1970. Though never widely popular among the general public, they have been recognized as among the most influential acts of their era: Rolling Stone called them "an unmeasurable influence on the industrial dance, noise, techno, ambient, and electronic scenes of the 1980s and 1990s."
