The Long, Strange Trip Of Pere Ubu

Jim Sullivan, The Boston Globe, 16 September 1988

DAVID THOMAS, lead singer-lyricist of Pere Ubu, on his group's long, strange trip: "The original Pere Ubu had been very much like piling in a Jack Kerouac car, heading cross-country with your foot to the floor, screaming all the while as fast as you could till you finally hit the beach in California and you were done."
