Commercial Suicide is the fourth studio album by English musician Colin Newman, released in 1986 by record label Crammed. Fact called it an unmitigated delight: a complex, consoling, literate pop classic going on to rank it the 69th best album of the 1980s. From the album Commercial Suicide Crammed Discs 1986.

At a time when it seems like any two-bit album recorded in the 1980s is being revived and reissued and afforded classic status, its particularly vexing that Colin Newmans Commercial Suicide hasnt enjoyed similar treatment. Dont get me wrong: this solo album by the Wire stalwart isnt all that obscure, and it sold decently upon release, certainly more so than its droll title would suggest. Following the first dissolution of Wire in 1980, Newman signed to Beggars Banquet for his first solo album, A-Z, a suite of puckish pop-punk that had its moments, but more often felt like lukewarm Wire leftovers.

Winenama
As a huge Wire fan I had slowly gotten into the solo projects of the three artistic members of the group, especially Gilbert and Lewis's end with Dome, He Said, and, ummm, Gilbert.

Anyway, as much as I love A-Z, when I got Commercial Suicide I just could not get into it no matter how hard I tried. Having heard about its orchestral concept beforehand--an idea that I felt was pretty gimmicky to begin with--is enough to show Newman's out of ideas. Thinking on this albums brings to mind the other cliched material he's released, the 'Fish' album, a Drum & Bass album, and the pretentious Githead project. Colin Newman is a great musician, but he doesn't give himself enough creative room when he attempts to be different just for the sake of being so. Take the title itself; it just shows that he's trying his hardest to pretend not to care which reveals just the opposite.

The music on this album is flowery pop/orchestral work that sends shivers down my spine (and not good ones). I don't blame him for trying something new, since this more positive sound was already being heard on Not To it's not all that surprising to hear again, but this is just too much. His lyricism, which is almost always strong, fails miserably here as well.

The only redeeming quality about this remaster, for me at least, are the bonus 'interview' sections. Even though I think these pieces of work are rather self-indulgent themselves, especially since he's not even being interviewed, just talking about himself, the music in the background is really interesting to listen to, and the dub is even better. Still, the bonus material is not enough to hold my interest for long.
