Alan Bermowitz (June 23, 1938 – July 16, 2016), known professionally as Alan Vega, was an American vocalist and visual artist, primarily known for his work with the electronic protopunk duo Suicide.

FRANKIE TEARDROP: is a song by Suicide from the band's acclaimed first album Suicide, which was released in 1977. The song tells a story of a young father and poverty-stricken factory worker whose destitution drives him to insanity. One day, Frankie comes home from work, murders his wife and child, and then commits suicide. The narrative then continues to follow him into hell. The track received many reviews due to both its disturbing nature and for its political viewpoint.

MAX'S KANSAS CITY: was a nightclub and restaurant at 213 Park Avenue South, in New York City, which became a gathering spot for musicians, poets, artists and politicians in the 1960s and 1970s. Suicide performed and hang out there a lot. Alan Vega:” I just liked Max’s better anyway. It was on Park Avenue and 15th Street, and Warhol and Lou Reed and all those people had hung out there in the ’60s. Eventually I wormed my way in and finally got a gig there.”

1977: the band's first album, Suicide was released independently in 1977. Suicide's albums of the late 1970s and early 1980s have now become regarded as some of the most influential recordings of their time and helped shape the direction of indie rock, industrial music, and dance music.
