Armed with portapak cameras, they shot now legendary shows and on-camera interviews, including this amazing Suicide performance. Conventional wisdom tells us that punk began in '75 or '76. Not for Suicide, a punk band since 1970. Innovators Alan Vega and Martin Rev put forth the model for the synth duos that went on to dominate the '80s - but with their own unmatched style and legendary use of drum machines, organs, and synths. Travel back in time with us for this SUICIDE LIVE show, which will be introduced by Martin Rev!
