Lydia Lunch/Suicide - Frankie Teardrop (Suicide Covers series)

Here's a nice wee feelgood track to stick on if you're ever feeling down in the dumps. Ho ho ho...

"I would be humiliated if I found out that anything I did actually became a commercial success, and so far, so good."

No need to worry here, hen. What to say about Lydia Lunch? She was in with Suicide back in the day, and has worked with a whole host of other alternative types since then. Not to mention her movie career and spoken word antics. Aye, an autobiography worth reading, I'd reckon.

On the flipside is a rare 1976 demo, entitled Frankie Teardrop, The Detective Meets The Space Alien. It's an epic 13 minutes long, so you could stick it on while relaxing in a hot bath maybe, just hide the razor blades.

Here's the lyrics in case you fancy singing along...

Thank You for posting these Suicide covers !!! I tried to get them once but the vinyl was sold out =( Frankie is a favorite of mine also, I was in a band once that was nothing like Suicide but we would play Frankie Teardrop right before we went on to see the reaction of the crowd... Always a fun sight =)
