Pop Combo

It appears that ol' wacky Dave Thomas is finally loosening up his strangle hold on Pere Ubu videos going out on the inner tubes. Here's a cut from that always impressive David Sanborn show, "Night Music".

Nearly Ubu's most commercial "hit", here's their 1989 release, "Breath".

My favorite all-time quote, for which I don't have a reference is..."Pere Ubu will be looked back on as the most important group to have come out of America in the last decade and a half. Either that or they will be entirely forgotten".

Wow - great quality on that video, too. Got to see Thomas a few years back here in PDX w/ the re-formed Rocket From the Tombs. He hobbled out on his cane but still put on a great, great show.
