BiographyAs the quieter half of the extremely influential late '70s electronic, proto-Industrial duo, Suicide, Martin Rev's job was to provide the droning, hiccuping beats and textured backdrops for his partner Alan Vega's animated rantings and onstage abusiveness. When the band split, Vega went on to pursue minor successes with stripped down electro-Rockabilly and two-note rock, while Rev's solo records continued with Suicide's sweet, childlike melodies and simple lyrics over desolate, monotone, minimalist electronics. As the cycle of Suicide's influence comes full circle again, Martin Rev and Alan Vega have regrouped as Suicide, recording and performing with the likes of Spiritualized and like-minded Pan Sonic.
