"If there is a narrative thread to the eclectic art/punk mosaic that constitutes Pere Ubu, it is the vocal musings of legendary front man David Thomas. Throughout the long history of the band from it's proto-rise out of the back water industrial malaise of Cleveland Ohio in the mid seventies to later incarnations that included avant garde luminaries like Chris Cutler and Captain Beefheart refuge Eric Drew Feldman, Thomas has formed a synaptic core that drives the band's creative peregrinations. Originally released on Rough Trade records in 1989, the disc features high quality live recordings spanning the band's most prodigious period from 1978 through 1981. Burning through Ubu classics like 'Dub Housing' and 'Codex', Thomas adds spontaneously sweeping arrangements to now classic material as the band sticks to the loose but aggregate teleology that characterizes Pere Ubu at it's best."
