Pere Ubu ‘Coed Jail!’ Songs From 1975-1982
Having completed their European tour, Pere Ubu return to the USA and Canada for ‘Coed Jail! v.1.1,’ performing songs from the two recent box set releases, ‘Architecture Of Language 1979-1982’ and ‘Elitism For The People 1975-1978’ (Fire Records),

Tracks from the inaugural ‘Modern Dance,’ through to what was described as “the scariest album ever recorded,” ‘New Picnic Time,’ will be performed in a fast moving set lasting 1½ hours.

Pere Ubu are David Thomas, Steven Mehlman (Drums), Michele Temple (Bass), Robert Wheeler (Synth and Theremin), and they will be joined by Gary Siperko (Rocket From The Tombs, Whiskey Daredevils, Mofos) on lead guitar
This isn’t a reunion. It isn’t a greatest hits tour.
“We don’t promote chaos, we preserve it,” Thomas explained. “Now more than ever - just like Nixon said - you need the sort of utterly gratuitous mess that only men of conviction can provide.”
Obnox - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The people say they want the truth. Let's take them at their word: The People want the Truth. LAMONT "BIM" THOMAS is the god(damn's honest) Truth. We all know the truth isn't always pretty, and rarely is it fun—but Thomas makes it sound like the best party you've ever been to which you've ever been invited. And make no mistake—everyone is invited. OBNOX is soul music for the bruised and battered; feel-good tunes for the righteously pissed-off masses; and a sonic salve for the neglected and ignored. Wiglet—Thomas's third full-length of 2015—is part two of Ever/Never's double-fisted Obnox-ious assault on your eardrums (following current triumph Know America). If possible, Wiglet is Thomas' most wigged-out offering yet. Condensed into a solid half-hour of fuzz, grease, sweat and fury, Wiglet is another entry into Thomas now-patented, and near-effortless, blend of punk (including garage, post and hardcore), soul and hip-hop—all with an ear worthy of a warped late '60s studio engineer.
