NO MORE - Release A Video For Their 1981 Hit

German cult band No More released an official video of their original hit "Suicide Commando" from 1981. No More became known through the genre-busting indie-classic "Suicide Commando", a title that since its appearance in 1981 has not only been included in numerous compilations but was also placed again and again in the limelight in remixes by DJ Hell, Vitalic and Echopark. So the song remains to this day an essential part of many DJ sets, from darkwave to electroclash, from EBM to post punk, from electronica to indie rock. The band today combines unusual electronic instruments, such as the theremin and "the green circle", with analogue sounds and create musically and visually impressive post-punk-kraut-electronica combination.
The Playground magazine from London (UK) described them with next words: "These guys are, quite literally, legends. Original contemporaries of Kraftwerk, they released their seminal single Suicide Commando in 1981, the same year that Kraftwerk released their what is commonly regarded as their last great album Computer World. The big K's influence on No More's dark brand of electronica is clear, but with "Suicide Commando", No More also managed to intelligently and subtly add punk to the mix. It's always impressive when a band go full circle and have the presence of mind to use the music of those they've influenced to re-invigorate their own sound." Watch the video below. Link
