Last night, he made good on that promise by unveiling an interview clip with Suicide’s Alan Vega, who died on Saturday at the age of 78. Vega was in town with Suicide as they were on tour with the Cars, and either before or after a local stop at the Paradise he attended a Punkt Data gallery showing at the Boston Architectural Center. Boston’s Oedipus tracked him down, and got Vega to chat for a live remote of his Demi Mode show for WTBS.
“Alan shares his stories of touring with the Clash in Europe, being punched out by skinheads, and tear gassed in Belgium,” Crocker writes. “All in a days work of artist who put it all on the line whether you liked it or not. RIP Alan Vega.”
