David Thomas says 'To my way of thinking, the new album is The James Gang teaming up with Tangerine Dream. Or something like that. The Chinese Whispers methodology we worked on the last two albums, now that everyone has gotten comfortable with it, has been replaced by the Dark Room. Put a bunch of musicians in a lightless room and by feeling one small section of an unknown object have them figure what it must be.
New Pere Ubu, their 20th album, release date set (September 29, 2017), pre-order tomorrow.
Kristof Hahn - as in SWANS! - in this Ubu iteration. Don't know if he's playing guitar or lap-steel guitar. Hoping both.
Have I ever mentioned I like Pere Ubu?
