Career, um, Suicide?

Pitchfork are reporting that Suicide are on the point of releasing a lumbering comeback album, which is worrying. Sure, it doesn't have to be a pile of poop, and not every reactivated punk turns in a performance that smacks more of bottom line than headthrills (we've always been happy with the Buzzcocks now, and when Kurt dragged the Raincoats out of retirement it added to their ouevre rather than damaged their reputation) but we hope they'll look at those pictures of a pissy, beer-soaked Johnny Rotten and think again. There's a dignity in back catalogue that doesn't often survive Clear Channel friendly reunion tours.
