About Martin Rev

Beside fellow Brooklynite Alan Vega as Suicide, keyboardist Martin Rev has inspired a legion of musicians including fellow warehouse-dwelling experimentalists, chart-topping synth pop acts, mainstream rock artists, and producers of techno and house. Rev is known most for the minimalist and alternately brutal and sweet playing that graces the revered albums he made with Vega, but he has recorded periodically on his own and in various forms, with and without his legendary original partner. Among Rev's solo highlights are Martin Rev (1980), Clouds of Glory (1985), See Me Ridin' (1995), and Stigmata (2009), an elegant set dedicated to his late wife. ~ Andy Kellman
