Pere Ubu (US)
Pere Ubu will introduce their new album, 20 Years In A Montana Missile Silo: The MonkeyNet Tour.
40 years since the release of their groundbreaking debut album, ‘The Modern Dance’, Pere Ubu continue to steer an idiosyncratic course in the world of popular music.
Pere Ubu will deliver an hour-long set of new songs, peppered with a number of tracks from previous albums and with David Thomas’s infamous narratives in-between. On the choice of tour name, Mr Thomas says: ‘An infinite number of monkeys clicking on an infinite number of links will yield nothing but an infinite number of bananas’. Straight up the Avantgardistic State’s strasse, we say. Pere Ubu’s sound is as driving and as widescreen and illuminating as classics like 30 Seconds of Tokyo and Misery Goat.
We dont promote chaos, we preserve it!
WORM is told that: ‘Pere Ubu’s latest album is perhaps the most extensive orchestration of the band so far, with 9 professional musicians coming together to produce ’20 Years In A Montana Missile Silo.’ Following on from the success of their last album, Carnival Of Souls, from which two tracks were used in cult TV show American Horror Story, it is the latest in an extensive collection of albums that span the bands 40+ year history. For this latest album, Kristof Hahn (Swans), joins the band on all tracks.’
