The length is my biggest complaint. I wish it was longer!

Amazing album from one of the greatest American bands of all time.

I’m shallow enough to admit that I’m discouraged to learn that DT mostly performs sitting down nowadays. Well, why shouldn’t he sit down? I know he wasn’t exactly David Lee Roth but he had great grace & style as a front man. I wonder if he whittles a stick while he’s sitting down?

it's nice to see that people on social media are taking up the slack that's left by all the mags and free weeklies going belly up.
articles about Ubu's legacy and "return to form" seem a necessary part of the touring process for an act like that. I mean, a rabid cult only gets you so far. My best Ubu gigs have had a good number of looky-lous mixed in with the frothing faithful.

I enjoyed this David Thomas interview.

I'm of the opinion that he's pretty much full of shit but he does give a fun interview.
