Pere Ubu - One Man Drives While the Other Man Screams - Live, Vol. 2



If there is a narrative thread to the eclectic art/punk mosaic that constitutes Pere Ubu, it is the vocal musings of legendary front man David Thomas. Throughout the long history of the band from it’s proto-rise out of the back water industrial malaise of Cleveland Ohio in the mid seventies to later incarnations that included avante garde luminaries like Chris Cutler and Captain Beefhart refuge Eric Drew Feldman, Thomas has formed a synaptic core that drives the band’s creative peregrinations.

Now Morphius records, in conjunction with Hearpen are proud to release a true document of Thomas’ genius as an extemporaneous performer and inventive vocalist One Man Drives While The Other Man Screams. Originally released on Rough Trade records in 1989, the disc features high quality live recordings spanning the band’s most prodigious period from 1978 through 1981, including sets at the infamous Electric Ballroom in London, England, the legendary mistake in Cleveland and the University of Heidelberg.

Thomas’ performance drives the record, an outer limits via aerialist sweep of vocalizing that All Music Guide called "positively manic". Burning through Ubu classics like Dub Housing and Codex, Thomas adds spontaneously sweeping arrangements to now classic material as the band sticks to the loose but aggregate teleology that characterizes Pere Ubu at it’s best. Rounded out with quality cuts like Caligari’s Mirror and Ubu Dance Party, this record co-mingles all the vibrant colors of the Ubu's legendary creativity with the over arching brush strokes of David Thomas’ performance artist turned rock vocalist, a rich and textured sonic diary of a genius.
