No More




No More


25 years "Suicide Commando"

From early (No)Wave to Dark/Gothic Underground, from EBM via Techno to Electroclash - and back again!

In 1981, the german band NO MORE landet an underground hit with SUICIDE COMMANDO, which in the following years spread internationally like a virus regardless of genre and scene.

Whether in the New Yorker Limelight or in an indie disco in the Ruhrgebiet, at the Love Parade in Berlin or the Parisian in-shop Colette, whether in a techno club in Tokyo or at the Sonar Festival in Barcelona:
SUICIDE COMMANDO was played everywhere and reached a status that made the title interesting for prominent remixers.
Not in the least thanks to the interpretation by DJ Hell or Echopark (Torsten Stenzel, Moguai), SUICIDE COMMANDO is as topical today as it was 25 years ago.

"A song that refuses to die. A couple of years after these Germans recorded this it spread like a virus to become a cult classic. The virus is still spreading to this day."
Optimo, UK (www.optimo.co.uk)

Hi from Toronto,

I appreciate all the great music you post, many thanks. Just wondering... I can't get any of the three songs in the Suicide Commando folder to open or play. Any suggestions?

Cheers,

Robert

I think I figured out the probkem... the three tracks in the No More-Suicide Commando 12" 1984-Germany folder are password protected, which is why they can't open.
