about

New four disc box set includes ‘Why I Luv Women’, ‘Long Live Père Ubu!’, ‘Lady From Shanghai’ & ‘Carnival Of Souls’

Rewriting the history of music, Pere Ubu continue to confound convention and shift personnel. The next box set in Fire Records’ reissue series, ‘Nuke The Whales’ houses 4 LPs originally released between 2006 and 2014 – ‘Why I LUV Women’, ‘Carnival Of Souls’, ‘Lady Of Shanghai’ and ‘Long Live Pere Ubu!’. ‘Nuke The Whales,’ is a nod of respect to a couple in Cleveland who would daub such messages over the big news stations’ advertising boards.
“Very few bands display such dedication to constant self-reinvention as Pere Ubu” The Quietus

Three albums have been remixed by David Thomas in 2021 with 'Carnival Of Souls' being remastered; the renamed ‘Why I LUV Women ’originally released on Glitterhouse in 2006 bore the line “This is an irony-free recording”, it gains its first vinyl release. David Thomas says "I did an album of love songs. I studied the question of why I love women and I was concerned of people not accessing the deeper level on the songs, so I threw in the Jim Thompson-esque title to throw people off - or on to - the scent. It ended up in garbage bins in radio stations despite a full explanatory press release. You need me to spell it out? I spell it out for you on this release.”

And ‘Lady From Shanghai’, their Fire debut for Fire in 2013. Originally released on the 35th anniversary of the group's debut, ‘The Modern Dance’, a latter day re-evaluation of the unprompted dance genre.

And its follow up ‘Carnival Of Souls’, a haunting “underscore’ to a tale of alienation, it “combines metallic percussion, spare guitars and David Thomas' muttered vocals into something rustic and rickety, yet threatening at a moment's notice.” AllMusic

The Pere Ubu project was supposed to be an end, not a beginning. Assembled in August 1975 to be the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young of the Cleveland music underground, the plan was to record one, maybe two singles and exist no more. Within months, however, those first self-produced records were being snapped up in worldwide. ... more
