Playing tracks by
Bruce Springsteen and Alan Vega.
One of my heroes have died, Alan Vega did not just play in one of the worlds best bands ever in form of Suicide. He also inspire me when I started to make lo-fi experimental music, I was 25 and thought I started late, but when finding out Vega was over 30 and still continued to create music and art up to his death. I was also attracted to both Vega and Revs approach to music, where they constantly broke every rule and where in my eyes the true punks! They took inspiration from everything from Elvis, Roy Orbinson to Techno and Noise, and their second album still sounds timeless and will always be one of the top five albums of all time.
So how to start a mix with music connected to Vega, well I choose a track which Vega is not even on, its not even a cover (which there will be in the mix) its probably a hommage to him, but that is not even for sure. Then the mix follows with music from Alan Vega solocareer, Suicide and collaborations, some covers and remixes. Enjoy! R.I.P Vega!!!
