Pere Ubu – The Modern Dance (1977)

Scroll down to content

Music critic Piero Scaruffi names The Modern Dance as the 7th greatest rock album of all time. Reviewing the album, he writes that “their sound starts out from the spirit of old-style garage-rock, but distorts it with harmonic and rhythmic grotesquery. The surreal lyrics and the student humour attenuate the dramatic force of the performance, but at the same time increase the feeling of collective madness, of resigned fatalism, of ineluctable slavery.”
