Product Description

The definitive, authorized biography of Suicide, the most iconic band of the New York punk explosion

New York City-based punk duo Suicide, though often feared and spurned for their anarchic and taboo-busting sound, inspired the major musical movements of the 1970s. In Dream Baby Dream, author Kris Needs chronicles Suicide’s roller coaster career from its formative days in avant-garde performance art through present day, chronicling their first album,their violent UK tour supporting The Clash in 1978, and the duo’s subsequent recordings, performances, and solo careers,supported with firsthand interviews by its founders, singer and artist Alan Vega and maverick instrumentalist Martin Rev.

Kris Needs is a former New Music Entertainment journalist and Zigzag editor. He has written several rock biographies about Blondie, George Clinton, Primal Scream, and The Clash. He is a regular contributor to Record Collector and Mojo.
