Alan Vega died the other day, and I'm not really going to dwell on it. I appreciate his groundbreaking work as half of Suicide (the other half being Martin Rev), but sometimes you just have to be in the mood, and tonight I'm not. So here's a few Vega related things, including "Frankie Teardrop", because every band has it's "Free Bird". There's a couple live things too, from 2009, and a couple writings found, you know, not here. The photo above of a young Vega was found on the site of his ex-wife, Mariette Bermowitz.
