Suicide CommandoNo More
Mannequin Records is really proud to present the 12'' reissue of No More - Suicide Commando, one of the most influential singles that ever reach the underground surface in the past 35 years.
Originally released in 1981 as a 7'' single, and subsequently reprinted in 1984 as a 12'' Single with a different tracklist on the B-Side, the single was in the following years spreading internationally regardless of genres and scenes.
Optimo (UK) describes it as '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.'
No More were founded by Andy A. Schwarz (vocals, guitar, bass), Tina Sanudakura (synthesizers), Christian Darc (drums, vocals) and Thomas Welz (bass, vocals) in Kiel, a seaside town in the northern part of Germany. The 7" EP "Too Late" was the first release in 1980 and was recorded in a small laundry-room with a 4-track TEAC (the EP was reviewed in the German SOUNDS-magazine as "strangely, archaic music, brute sound that seems to be recorded with a purposely damaged 4-track"). After the departure of Thomas Welz at the end of 1980, No More worked as a trio until the end of 1983. During that period the band recorded the song "Suicide Commando', basically their biggest success. In the 1990s the song entered the Techno- and Electroscene, when it was remixed by DJ Hell and Echopark (Moguai & Torsten Stenzel).
A minimal electro classic, highly recommended!
