Alan Vega (born June 23, 1938, Brooklyn, New York, USA - died July 16, 2016) was an American musician, vocalist and sculptor and one half of the seminal electronic duo Suicide. He began his career as a visual artist, gaining notoriety for his "light sculptures" eventually Vega opened his own lower Manhattan gallery space, which he dubbed the Project of Living Artists.

Complete your Alan Vega collection. This a strange album. It is like Alan Vega pays tribute to the rock pionneers. See new liners notes by Henry Rollins for this. Another look is on this is to refer to Henry Flynt works : not only Alan Vega wanted to pay just a tribute but he also wanted to record what was a rock sound now forgotten.

Alan Vega (Boruch Alan Bermowitz, June 23, 1938 – July 16, 2016) was an American vocalist and visual artist, primarily known for his work with the electronic protopunk duo Suicide. Alan Bermowitz was raised in a Jewish household in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.

Vocalist Alan Vega wasn’t as involved in the instrumentals as in their previous album. He stayed away from the musical part of the record to concentrate on the lyrics and vocals. Pushed by their label, ZE Records, the album took a pop approach to the Suicide formula presented in their debut. The rough edges that characterized the band were replaced with a modern, disco sound. This departure from the style they were known for was acknowledged by Martin, saying that the album didn’t truly reflect what Suicide was about

Alan Vega used his first solo album to distance himself from the music made by his pioneering synth-punk duo Suicide. Lonely" is Vega's homage to "Heartbreak Hotel," and it's as full of yelps and pleading as the original, as Vega does his best Elvis impression

This a strange album. It is like Alan Vega pays tribute to the rock pionneers. See new liners notes by Henry Rollins for this. Another look is on this is to refer to Henry Flynt works : not only Alan Vega wanted to pay just a tribute but he also wanted to record what was a rock sound now forgotten. Let's call it musicology... Listen carefully love cry or even bye bye bayou for that. Both ways are a master work.

I have the Orange vinyl version. Sounds clear and powerful. Fantastic! I appreciate that they have used the original negatives for the artwork, but i wish they would have just reproduced the original cover exactly how as it was. Their messing about has resulted in listing track 2 and 3 in reverse order on the back cover. They could have just used the extra images and text for the inner sleeve instead of 'Redux'. Having said that, the poster is awesome! Single (wider to accommodate poster) cover = not gate-fold.Same problem with the 'Suburban Lawns' re-release by this label. Music sounds great but should have reproduced the original cover; especially when it's the first ever re-release after the original. It is also over-priced compared to most other new releases... not sure how this can be justified.
