It – Alan Vega
Well I've finally managed to get a copy of It, the final Alan Vega album. It (no pun intended!) doesn't seem to have had a UK release for some reason but my copy has now arrived all the way from the USA in delicious double vinyl form! It was a bit weird taking out of the packaging, knowing that this was Al's final release and though there will no doubt be all sorts of post-humous bits and pieces releases in the future, this would be the last time I experienced a proper new album from someone I have admired for so long. As for the content, well I'm almost two thirds of the way through it and I'm glad to report that, like the advance tracks suggested, this is Alan Vega being totally uncompromising until the very end as he screams and croons about the American flag, war and genocide like some mad Elvis impersonator in a David Lynch nightmare over almost industrial beats and backing. A great way for the great man to bow out.
