Pere Ubu are promoting their new album ‘Lady From Shanghai’.

They were the mid seventies proto punk band whose classic song, ‘Final Solution’, has always been a favourite. The band were a massive influence on Joy Division and post punk and have been in some semblance of existence since then touring and releasing records.

Pere Ubu is an experimental rock music group formed in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1975. Despite many long-term band members, singer David Thomas is the only constant. The group is named after Pere Ubu (“father Ubu”), the protagonist of Ubu Roi (“Ubu, the King”), a play by French writer Alfred Jarry. While Pere Ubu have never been widely popular, usually categorized as underground rock, they have a devoted following, have been hugely influential on several generations of avant-garde musicians and are a critically acclaimed American musical group.
