Algebra Suicide boys in bed




Algebra Suicide "boys in bed"

This wasn't trying to "be music", but was simply avant garde poetry with musical background accompaniment. She was a beautiful genius, lads! Think of Patti Smith with a saucier smile.

A poetry-music duo from Chicago that were together from 1983 to 1993. From Trouser Press [Ira Robbins] -

Of the many vocalist/instrumentalist duos to emerge in and around the new wave, this Chicago team was quite unique, a fascinating marriage of Don Hedeker's music and Lydia Tomkiw's poetry.

Over the course of its career, Algebra Suicide flirted with pop forms and occasionally shared stylistic ground with both Laurie Anderson and the Velvet Underground but never wavered from its own individual path.

THE CARS hello again Andy Warhol mix



The Cars "Hello Again" (1984)

Banned from MTV. Directed by Andy Warhol.


The music's not really "punk", more new wave disco sludge, but the director and the attitude is pure punk rebellion.
