Berlin’s Punk artist duo Cherie (Vocals & Visuals) and Nackt (Vocals & Sound) are Warren Suicide.
[audio:xxx-xxx.mp3]Warren Suicide were founded as an Electro Trio in Berlin in 2003. Nackt and then band member Fremdkörper were looking for a sound, a character while Cherie was drawing a strange figure on a piece of paper in front of her.
Warren appears with the words “Hello, hello, my name is Warren Suicide”. It’s a small face, the outlines slightly contorted, a slender figure, asexual, thin arms and legs. It smiled carefully, the teeth looking like those of a fish, the eyes with the look of a new-born baby, but wide open.

Ever since then, life, music, art and Warren have existed alongside each other and the anarchistic comic character has been their spiritual guru ever since, an essence which motivates the band – Warren Suicide lies somewhere between the imaginable and the apprehended.
Since his first groundbreaking album releases, Markus Popp aka “oval” continues to be one of the most prolific and influential forces in contemporary electronic music – a laptop legend and true visionary of digital audio.
With an undeniable instinct for the pleasantly irritating, the drastic and the dreamy, Popp pioneered “glitch” and “clicks & cuts” – inspiring and provoking a new generation of music producers to this day.
The new oval sound is a celebration of a new level of skill & sensibility in contemporary music: handcrafted polyrhythmic phrases, riffs and structures, bristling with tiny resonances & detail – adding up to timeless tunes which are effortlessly traversing rhythms, scales and harmonies.
