Music Consumption: Pere Ubu
03/26/1998 Pere Ubu: Pennsylvania

Datapanik in the Year Zero by Pere Ubu

Still New Picnic Time and The Art of Walking. The perfect soundtrack for living in the Rust Belt.

I was introduced to Pere Ubu's music when I was an annoying adolescent going to the Pittsburgh Filmmakers independent film nights.

The program director would play extraordinarily hip music before the films, and I remember how riveted I was when I first heard "Laughing" from The Modern Dance.

The new CD, "Pennsylvania", will be released in the US and Canada in a few days.
