Here are some early Suicide demos from the ROIR-released Half Alive (1981). There's also some live stuff on it, with some real prime examples of Alan Vega screaming like a crazy, but I like the demos cause they're prettier. And that's how i'm feeling. Most of these turned up on the first or second albums as similarly named but differently produced songs, and all except for "Dreams" were recorded at their home studio.

I just saw The Wicker Man (1973) recently, and it was the best movie I've seen all year, maypoles and sexy rituals and masked pagans oh my. I read somewhere that Paul Giovanni wrote the entire score in a week, which is rad since it's pretty much a masterpiece.
It's a shame that an awful remake of this film was made last year with Nick Cage (boo). Some of the most popular videos on YouTube right now are mash-ups of the lamest scenes from the remake with everyone ragging on what a douche Nick Cage is in the comments. Ha. But everyone should see the original and forget about the remake. Here is some music from the movie - I wasn't able to download one or two of my favorites, so when I do I'll add them to the post.
