Martin Rev & Alan Vega

of Suicide, synth-punk visionaries & proto-punk hooligans, in front of the Neue Welt, Berlin, on June 30th, 1978, as captured by Bob Gruen.

This was shot a couple of weeks after their infamous Brussels gig that ended in bedlam, one of the most extreme and confrontational moments ever recorded in punk history, compared perhaps only to Iggy & The Stooges’ notorious ‘Metallic KO’ 1974 performance. The duo were on a European Tour, initially supporting Elvis Costello & The Attractions and later on The Clash, when they met with an extremely hostile reception from the audience in Brussels, by a part of it who were getting impatient to see Elvis Costello and didn’t get Suicide’s performance. As soon as “Frankie Teardrop” began, the booing started, chairs were thrown on stage and someone even grabbed Alan Vega’s microphone amidst whistles and cheers
but these two New Yorkers were tough motherfuckers, who weren’t going to be intimidated (you can listen here for the specific excerpt)
.

Alan Vega’s primal scream is heard, while all hell breaks loose:

SHUT THE FUCK UP! THIS IS ABOUT FRANKIEEE!

Elvis Costello, furious at the crowd’s treatment of the band,
played an extremely short set

with no encore, a decision that turned the gig into a full scale riot, with the police storming in to clear the place.This mythical rock ’n’ roll moment was captured on tape and released as an official bootleg
called
“21½ Minutes In Berlin/23 Minutes In Brussels”.

Same shit also went down during their Netherlands gigs a few days later and when the band toured with The Clash that same summer, Alan Vega was physically attacked several times,
getting his nose busted or having an axe thrown right by his head, but for Suicide that was just a way of life.
