Go Nightclubbing's SUICIDE LIVE (1980)

Video artists Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong, in the pre-MTV days from 1977-80, spent their nights documenting New York’s nascent punk and no wave scenes. Armed with portapak cameras, they shot now legendary shows and on-camera interviews, including this amazing Suicide performance.

Conventional wisdom tells us that punk began in ‘75 or ‘76. Not for Suicide, a punk band since 1970. Innovators Alan Vega and Martin Rev put forth the model for the synth duos that went on to dominate the ‘80s – but with their own unmatched style and legendary use of drum machines, organs, and synths.
