Alan Vega (1938-2016) born in Brooklyn was an American musician, vocalist and sculptor and half of the 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. Suicide disbanded in 1980, and both Vega and Rev undertook solo careers.




About the record

For Saturn Strip, Suicide frontman Alan Vega signed to a major (his first) and decided to escape the “art punk ghetto”. Except a disco cover “Every 1’s a Winner”, all the songs are in a four-minute pop format instead of his work on Suicide extended art pieces. All that changes brings a great album, about it, some people said that it is his best career album. 

Pour le LP Saturn Strip, Alan Vega (le chanteur de Suicide) signe sur une major et décide d’échapper à la tendance “art punk ghetto”. Hormis la reprise disco “Every 1’s a Winner”, toutes les chansons sont dans un format pop d’environ quatre minutes, contrairement à son travail pour les longues plages de Suicide. Tous ces changements en font un superbe album, un des meilleurs de sa carrière.
