Suicide's Martin Rev Performs with M.I.A. on Letterman

via davegrohlsfreshpots on YouTube:

When M.I.A.'s new single "Born Free" came out, many music geeks were impressed that she used a sample of NYC's pioneering electro rockers Suicide. Last night on Letterman, she was joined onstage by none other than Martin Rev himself. Can't say I care for the song too much (I think she still hasn't topped her debut, "Arular"), but I have to give her a big thumbs up for acknowledging the influence, especially when probably only about three people watching it probably know who Martin Rev is.
