I think you get the message.
but i love The Modern Dance massively. and Terminal Tower is pretty amazing as well.
not explored past that early stuff though
is that all you've got on Pere Ubu?
I despair of you lot sometimes
Data Panik from the Year 3000. I have that, and like it. Less despondant?
is that the 5 track EP or the boxset?
the EP makes up the first half of Terminal Tower and contains some stone cold classics. agreed?
I highly recommend their first two albums if you like it
Its the EP. Its good stuff, though I wasn't too sure where to go from there with them really.
Cabaret Voltaire: decent or not? I'm really into them.
one of those groups i've been meaning to check out for ages. what would you recommend as their best album?
I'd say the Mix Up album, its awesome. I've heard a fair bit of their other stuff, which is also great, but this one is really dark and hypnotic sounding.
Red Mecca and Voice Of America are also worth hearing.
are excellent in my book. Richard H Kirk's solo stuff is also excellent. Chris Watson's solo feild recordings are rather special too.
Modern Dance and like it lots. I really should get some more stuff. Has anyone heard the new album?
Do you like Rocket from the Tombs? Some of the blokes from PU plus Peter Laughner.
they're pretty hard to get hold of. i do know Laughner was on some of the earlier Pere Ubu singles, and his guitar playing on them is excellent, more punky shredding than the subsequent guitarist
i've not heard the newest album either, but it is supposed to be quite good. i don't really want to jump in at the end when theres so much previous stuff i haven't explored though
I'm pretty much the same in regard to the newer stuff. I feel like I've barely listened to their back catalogue.
As for RFTT. If you see this album http://tinyurl.com/yvkrjm then I highly recommend getting it.
that looks really good. stooges covers, early versions of Pere Ubu songs.. think i'm gonna have to get myself a copy
'dub housing' and 'modern dance' in equal measures. Woo!
Early stuff is all excellent and I'm a fan of their middle period 'pop' stuff like Worlds In Collision too.
There's a great Cabaret Voltaire compilation HERE http://www.amazon.co.uk/Original-Sound-Sheffield-Voltaire-1978-1982/dp/B00006IX2X
