(Hearpen Records) GUEST REVIEW by RUSS FORSTER
I lost track of the great Pere Ubu sometime in the early ‘90s, when they started to sound depressingly more like a band influenced by R.E.M. than a band influencing them. But this CD is a great re-introduction for me to what always made PU great: bizarre humor, unusual instrumentation, great writing, and general beautiful dada organized chaos. Not likely to hit any dance floors soon, but good for putting the headphones on and enveloping yourself with. “Head Music,” anyone?
