*GREEN VINYL REPRESS VERSION* Mannequin Records is really proud to present the 12ï¿½ï¿½ 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 7ï¿½ï¿½ single, and subsequently reprinted in 1984 as a 12ï¿½ï¿½ 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 ï¿½a 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.ï¿½
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 Commandoï¿½, 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!
