Suicide - Frankie Teardrop

Album Suicide (Red Star,1977) Chart Pos: You must be joking!

This is an odd post seeing that I've never listened to this song the whole way though. I usually get to the four minute mark when Alan Vega begins let out a high pitched scream over the minimalist electro, 9 times out of ten this scares the bejesus out of me and i reach for the stop button. From what I've heard after this point the ten minute epic becomes more of a primal scream therapy session caught on tape rather than a fully fledged song. That said Suicide's debut album isn't a bad album in a Lou Reed goes electro way but bloody hell is it claustrophobic.
