Suicide, “Ghost Rider” (Live, 1977/1978)

We can see it: Liars, Peaches, Primal Scream, and Nick Cave are all big fans of Suicide — the 70s art/synth-punk duo fronted by Alan Vega and Marin Rev. But Bruce Springsteen? That’s a new one on us. Indeed all of these artists — including the Boss — as well as Vincent Gallo, the Horrors, Spiritualized, and many more, will pay tribute to the no-wave legends on limited edition 10″ singles, to be released in year-long installments, starting this July. Here, we bring you live Suicide, screaming and whooping their way through their classic “Ghost Rider.” With Rev engaged in some bizarre interpretive dance amongst the always-badass-looking Vega’s haunted keyboards and minimal drum machine beats, we encourage you to watch, listen, and ponder how Bruce went from getting into this to writing “Born in the USA.” — Ryan Allen
