SUICIDE’S Dream Baby Dream – The Unlikely Anthem of 2016

About 100 minutes into Adam Curtis’s latest documentary, HyperNormalisation, there’s a montage of movie scenes in which skyscrapers are blown up by bad guys, crumbling into themselves as people leap from flaming top-storey windows. All of these films, Curtis tells us, were made before 9/11. As the strangely prophetic scenes keep coming, Suicide’s Dream Baby Dream drones in the background.

Older Than My Old Man Now is the title track of the twenty-second studio album by American singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III, released on April 17, 2012 on 2nd Story Sound Records.Described as “a gleefully morbid summing up of [Wainwright’s] life in which he ponders childhood, family history, aging and death,” the album is produced by High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project (2009) collaborator Dick Connette, and features contributions from each of Wainwright’s children.

Upon the album’s release, Wainwright noted, “When you’re sixty-five, everything seems to be somewhat in the rear-view, or at least in the side-view. Well, not everything, and hopefully your windshield wipers are still working.”…….. Continued…..

Frankie Teardrop by Suicide, The Most Terrifying Song Ever

Frankie Zero Hour
Frankie Teardrop by Suicide

Alan Vega, who died Saturday July 16, 2016 at the age of 78, was a New York City-based visual artist who loved extremes, especially the confrontational rock & roll of the Stooges, the roaring drones of composer La Monte Young, and the beat-driven electronic art of Silver Apples. These influences all converged in “Frankie Teardrop,” a nihilist fable by his group Suicide. It was the ultimate expression of his proto-punk vision and one of the most terrifying songs ever recorded. Lou Reed once said he wished he’d written it.

Bruce Springsteen called shocking tune “one of the most amazing records … I ever heard”
