"Alan Vega and Martin Rev are two of the greatest artists on the New York music scene. In solo or with Suicide, they were at the origin of contemporary musical styles like electro and punk. Without them, no Nine Inch Nails, New Order, Depeche Mode, Radiohead, Aphex Twin or Daft Punk. Rolling Stone Magazine ranks Suicide's first album in its list of the 500 greatest records of all time. Alan Vega 'One of the great revolutionary voices in rock & roll' --Bruce Springsteen. Marc Hurtado is a French director, the only one to have been able to follow and film Alan Vega for years. As a musician, he played with Christophe, Genesis P-Orridge, Gaby Deldago (DAF), Lydia Lunch. He also produced one of Vega's latest albums: Sniper. This boxset presents the entirety of these 5 unreleased films.
