When David Thomas idiosyncratically wails his asymmetrical way around "Ubu Dance Party," you sense a forced smile atop the group's thumping noise. Pere Ubu put down the ideas of which others could only dream. Thomas articulates his personal pain in jagged verbal shapes, while art wrestles pop into submission. DUB HOUSING, wrapped in a dark and uninviting sleeve, is named after the ambience of terraced homes in Baltimore. It's that sort of record.
What the critics say...
Alternative Press (10/99, pp.105-6) - 5 out of 5 - "...Ubu were some of the most danceable freaks in all of post-punk America...if David Thomas' caterwaul and Allen Ravenstine's mind-altering keyboard riffs don't get you leaping around...you're not really alive and you never were..."
