In 1981, Alan Vega had released his second solo LP under the title, Collison Drive. It forms part of the "play loud! (live) music series". The "play loud (live) music series" is based on three precepts: Alan Lomax's work as an archivist and chronicler, John Peel's BBC radio sessions, and the work of Direct Cinema pioneers, such as the Maysles Brothers, Leacock, Wildenhahn, Blank, and Pennebacker. play loud! aims to create an extensive archive of interesting popular music and culture that includes both material from the filmmakers' large amount of unreleased footage and material from other sources. Other artists in this series: Damo Suzuki, Lydia Lunch, Floating di Morel, Hans-Joachim Irmler, FM Einheit, Faust, Die Regierung, Limpe Fuchs, Guru Guru, Friedman + Liebezeit, Camera featuring Michael Rother and Dieter Moebius, and many more. Rockpalast (Rock Palace) is a German music television show that broadcasts live on German television station Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR). Rockpalast started in 1974 and continues to this day. Hundreds of rock, heavy metal and jazz bands have performed on Rockpalast. For this vinyl and DVD release play loud! has licensed the Alan Vega show from 1982. Credits: Alan Vega - vocals, harp, guitar; Mark Kuch - guitar; Sesu Coleman - drums; Larry Chaplan - bass. Remastering by Moritz Illner (duophonic). The vinyl LP comes with an eight-page booklet and a DVD, containing the entire live show (film I), which was recorded by German Public TV during Vega's 1982 'Collision Drive' tour. Also, on the DVD, the art exhibition "Alan Suicide: Collision Drive 2002" at Deitch Projects in New York (film II). It was Alan Vega's first exhibition after 18 years. Interestingly, both the Rockpalast show and the art exhibition carried the title Collision Drive. A term that maybe best describes Vega's art and music. 1982/2002/2022 DVD is NTSC, region-free.
