Great early Pere Ubu. It's like the Modern Dance but "Live". Good recording and a real feel for what this all meant at the time. For me this recording beats most of the live releases that have been put out over the years. I do give a glowing review as i still think the Modern Dance is up there amongst the greats.

Remarkable recording of those decisive early years combining the modern dance with the about to be even weirder elements spying through the cracks.
Recorded in 1978; what took them so long? It contains some of the highlights of the 1970's in clear pristine stereo blasting through the speakers pulling you into the steamy sweaty gig in Longhorn and where some of the strange parts of the era were played out on April Fools Day. Here began the Modern Dance with the driving drums pushing the songs in another direction away form the album.
