David Thomas; the frontman and founder of Pere Ubu has within the last hour declared he has ‘quit music’ – the announcement was made via his Facebook Profile
Thomas made the simple declaration “I quit music. Goodbye.” – this followed an earlier announcement stating “The US Government does not believe Pere Ubu is an internationally recognized, world class band so they will not allow us to tour in America.”
LTW has approached both Pere Ubu’s and David Thomas’ PR agents but at this time we are yet to gain a reply, or further detail.
Pere Ubu have been at the forefront of inventive music since their inception some 35yrs ago – only in January 2013 they continued to challenge even the bands most ardent listeners when the released the dance album ‘Lady From Shanghai’ (LTW Review)
