Number One! And although it's unlistenable, Suicide's signature song is, for my money, one of rock's great masterpieces. Contemporary "Horrorcore" artists armed with unthinkably sophisticated technology and wads of cash have never even grazed the unspeakable horror Alan Vega and Marty Rev captured with a mic, a toy organ and a broken drum box. Whether it's that scream or the sound collage of shifting static and tinkling jack-in-the-box that Rev uses to portray Frankie's descent into Hell, there's just nothing like it in the world.
Nick Hornby described this as something you'd only ever want to listen to once, whereas Bruce Springsteen considered this to be one of the most amazing records he'd ever heard. With that in mind its not difficult to work out where his 'inhuman screams' on State Trooper emanated from.
Its that terrifying, I couldn't not jam it.
