MARTIN REV clouds of glory (US,1985, reissued1996)

1985 New Rose vinyl edition front cover

Martin Rev, the half of the legendary SUICIDE, recorded the material of this album 1981-84 at NY, with Marty Thau. No ALAN VEGA singing here, so don`t expect that rock and roll feeling SUICIDE uniquely created some years before without using(!) rock `n` roll instruments. Anyway these electronic excursions don`t miss much of the genuine anticomformist spirit of Martin, and they may interest funs of SUICIDE, or lovers of analog electronics, or followers of 80`s dark paths.
Clouds of Glory was 2nd Rev`s solo album and released first by French New Rose label in 1985. Reissued 1996 by RED STAR MUSIC with a new cover, including also the extra track "Island" from 1987.
