Aside form being a poignant and startling presence on our charts, the Mannequin label is doing plenty of justice to Italy's industrial past. Throughout the last few years, label head Alessandro Adriani has resurfaced a whole heap of incredible music from the European peninsula, and this single by the shady Flo & Andrew is a perfect example of that. Released in 1981, "Take Suicide" is a deranged pic of music, like a cavernous wave of distorted sonics and technoid power beats, it truly makes us wonder what these two dudes were smoking back in the early 80s! On the flip, things turn even weirder thanks to the ominous bleeps and sonics of "To Committ Suicide", followed by a sublime porterhouse number called "Japanese Girls". The synths on the latter are particularly reminiscent of Mr Fingers' best output. A touch of class, and an excellent reissue. 5 stars.
