Description

Colin Newman - Commercial Suicide

A masterpiece of refined electronic pop by Wire vocalist Newman, featuring excentric lyrics and surprising arrangements for chamber music ensemble, “Commercial Suicide” was recorded in collaboration with composer John Bonnar, Minimal Compact’s Malka Spigel and engineer/producer Gilles Martin. This edition includes “Interview”, an original track of 2x12-minute over which Colin Newman monologues ironically about himself and his music.

Reviews

“File under Genius, mad” (Sounds, UK, ‘87)

“You can place ‘Commercial Suicide’ alongside Robert Wyatt’s ‘Rock Bottom’ or Syd Barrett’s ‘The Madcap Laughs’ in your record collection... just like these elders, Colin Newman is an excentric, in the better sense of the term” (Rock & Folk, France, ‘86)

“One of the few Englishmen to whom I would give carte blanche to make pop.” (Melody Maker, UK, ‘87)

“If Colin Newman isn’t careful he’ll soon find himself horribly close to becoming popular” (Q, UK, ‘86)
