Pere Ubu - The Modern Dance

SKU 39-FIRR360.2
After a number of very good self-released 45's, Pere Ubu found themselves signed to a hip 'new wave' subsidiary of a major label (Blank Records - which only lasted two albums) for this, the premier release on Blank. I saw their tour for this album at Bethesda's rather tiny Psychedelly in 1978. They were great; I wasn't very familiar with them at all, so my main memories were of David Thomas' nervous/poet stage presence and Allen Raventine's great noisy non-keyboard synth work. This recording, from 1976 and 1977 really sounds like nothing else under the sun, and this was even more so at the time!
