Default Suicide

I'm suprised there is no thread about these two dudes yet...They've influenced a hell of alot of people but, it seems they're not as popular as I thought. I have all of their early work but, I haven't heard any their later albums.

I know them by Ghost Rider, which is a pretty creative track. I might try to get an album of their's soon.

They were big influences on Jesus & Mary Chain (so I've read), who were the fore-runners to distortion-y pop like shoegaze. For that, they're great. But to be honest, their celebrated Ghost Riders album just isn't that great to me. It is listenable, but doesn't wow me.

you can hear their influence all over the early Mary Chain albums. The dark and dangerous vibe and atmosphere. Lovely.

Suicide are alright.

Wouldn't call them that innovative , Silver Apples were doing pretty much the same sort of thing a decade earlier.I think what Suicide did was come around at the right time when people were looking for the next extreme thing on from punk.

Speaking of which, I don't think there is a thread about the Silver Apples yet.

Suicide's 1st album is swell, but their second is a little too pop-oriented for my taste. The remainder of their discography is a giant forgettable mess...
