Track Of The Day #564: Pere Ubu – Golden Surf II

untitled (2)


This is well up our street. Preview teaser taster track from the mighty Pere Ubu whose forthcoming ‘Carnival of Souls’ set is due soon on Fire Records. ‘Golden Surf II’ is frankly so off radar and unhinged that it might catch long term Ubu devotees totally off guard for this honey is loose ‘n’ wired and finds Thomas and Co channelling some warped Beefheartian parallel universe immersed in abstraction and no wave nuances intent on turning your listening space on its head and your normality axis to cock eyed amid a gloriously feral and fractured slab of demented Dadaist boogie. Which by rights ought to have you eagerly counting down the days until the albums release date.
