Martin Rev
Martin Rev (R.O.I.R. USA)

By: Alex Steininger

Suicide's Martin Rev, one of the most influential artists of the past three decades, and a man that, along with Alan Vega, helped shape everything from punk to new wave, comes to life on his solo debut.

Originally released on Charles Ball's Lust/Unlust label in 1979, RIOR USA is re-releasing it with 5 bonus tracks (including three exclusive, unreleased tracks). A journey through the experimental, the pre-new wave, latter-end of punk, and burgeoning industrial, Martin Rev is a wickedly psychedelic, mesmerizing concoction of space, combining a mind-fucking core with an unimaginable, imagery-inducing shell. I'll give it a B+.
