Limited edition of 3000, 6CD set. Audio verité recordings (mastered by the incomparable Denis Blackham) of Suicide playing live from September 1977 to August 1978. These recordings cover most of their early shows at CBGBs and Max's Kansas City, plus their first-ever tour across Europe and the UK, these being their dates outside the USA. As you will hear, a crucial year in Suicide's development as both musicians and performers and their mission to stretch the label of punk rock to the very limit. The package includes a 40-page booklet of Suicide & Red Star Records memorabilia (including very rare Red Star press releases) from the personal archives of Howard Thompson, the A&R man that signed Suicide to UK label Bronze Records. Only the infamous 23 Minutes Over Brussels has been legally released before. From soundcheck and post-gig snippets to crowd noise to a radio advertisement for Our Price Record Stores, these recordings are raw and real. From the liner notes: "This set of recordings are not for the faint hearted, nor is it the ideal place to start for those first time listeners seeking an easy entry into the dark and decidedly queasy world of Alan Vega and Marty Rev's proto-futuristic, low- tech sci-fi musical that they launched on a mostly uncaring world as music group Suicide. Howard Thompson's archive was originally made purely for his personal reference based on a joyless recognition that he was right there seeing history in the making. We've presented the gigs in the order they happened, all the better to hear how the Suicide live experience develops. If you want homogenized, sanitized, tweaked and combed, P.C.'d 'punk,' put this baby back on eBay and sell it for profit to one who maybe really wants the use of these leather black skrying mirrors." --Paul Smith, Blastfirstpetite (2008)
