  • R.I.P. Alan Vega



    a true original



    glad I saw them at least once, I stood next to Andrew Weatherall whilst watching the show and Meg of The White Stripes was at the after show party



    always had a bit of soft spot for RCOTJ too

    Big news! R.I.P I've been digging on the album made with Alex Chilton that was re-released last year. The live version of the album is probably better with Vega's freestyling.

      Crikey I had no idea he was so old, that first 'Suicide' album is top. RIP.

        Saw Suicide supporting The Clash in '78 and they were so good - too good for the Neanderthal element of the crowd who gave them dogs abuse all evening. Too edgy and confrontational. The Clash seemed quite tame and dull in comparison. Went out and bought their debut that weekend. Terrific and influential. RIP.

          I saw them on that tour, but they got a terrible reception, as did most acts that the Clash valiantly put on as support acts.

            I was surprised (and secretly delighted) at how bad a reception they got at ATP a few years ago. Something confrontational seemed to make half the audience really angry. Great gig for sure. And that debut album is one of the greatest ever,
            Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.
