5.0 out of 5 stars as nutritious as beets w/out the aftertaste April 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The short version: Buy this now. Those who know, know. Thosewho stumble upon this biscuit are advised that David Thomas is theprovocateur behind Cleveland's finest, Pere Ubu.
On this disc, he teams with sympatico Danish "foreigners" to create a beautiful sonic landscape of longing, coffee, and persistent precipitation. God, that sounds stupid. Let me start over.
As much as I try not to let the wash of popular culture influence my reaction to individual acts of creativity, I gotta testify. Pick up Rolling Stone and you can see the dig in progress. Content-free radar blips (such as No Doubt) are rewarded for showing up and wearing the latest rubber pants. Elder rock statesman such as Lou Reed and Bob Dylan have their feet held to the fire for trying too hard or not trying hard enough. Meanwhile, tremendously-cool music like this is all but ignored. And I think I know why.
What, after all, would RS say about this? There is no hair style for context, no co-branded athletic wear to display on the tour banner. If they had to review it, they would be lost. They might even resort to mentioning longing, coffee, and persistent precipitation.

The recorded career of David Thomas may be readily divided into four main periods:
I. The first era of Pere Ubu from the mid-1970's to their 1983 breakup. From the Datapanik e.p. and the Modern Dance LP to Song of the Bailing Man, Thomas and his cohorts made masterpiece after masterpiece, mixing rock, fractured funk, blues, folk, and sound and noise sculptures to become the energized Captain Beefheart for the punk and post-punk era. Everything from this period is essential (and is conveniently collected in a nifty box set).
II. The David Thomas solo albums of the 1980's. I particularly like More Places Forever with its unique oboe/bass/drums line-up, and, in general, the music on all these records is very adventuresome, while the uniquely poetic world view of Thomas is brought to the fore. Great stuff, available on the import box set Monster.
III. The Pere Ubu reunion and Great Pop Experiment. Pere Ubu reunited in 1987 to make Tenement Year, one of its finest albums in its old, densely arranged, bizzaro-style, then made a conscious decision to "sell out" by trying its hand at a pop record while still maintaining the Ubu vision. The result was arguably their masterpiece, the wonderful Cloudland (which, if you ask on the right day, is my all-time favorite album--and, of course, it's out-of-print). David Thomas allowed his love of Brian Wilson to finally show through in the vocal choruses and shiny, happy melodies--while Pere Ubu (particularly synthesizer colorist Allen Ravenstine, who left the Ubu fold, alas, after this record) never sounded better as a band. And, yet, beneath the pop sheen, it still managed to be quintessentially Pere Ubu, all dark and weird and unsettling.
