Pere Ubu – Free White (2012)

Scroll down to content

Pere Ubu made some of the darkest and most creative music of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Thirty five years after its release, The Modern Dance would easily make my top 10 of all time. We hear the word “industrial” bandied about to describe music — The Modern Dance exemplified that genre. Wordsmith and singer David Thomas and his ever-changing band members have made more than a dozen albums worth hearing since then. And now they’re back with a new song, “Free White,” from a new album, Lady From Shanghai, due in January. It’s good to know that singular, defining sound still haunts this band. [Source]
