Pere Ubu: Dub Housing 12
THE MODERN DANCE was Pere Ubu's debut and 1978's great leap forward in the wake of punk and its lesser descendents. As such, DUB HOUSING, 10 months its junior, was always going to have a hard act to follow. At heart an avant-garde troupe with an overbearing sense of alienation about them, Ubu resisted the hooks that earned THE MODERN DANCE so many of its plaudits. DUB HOUSING rode along on Tony Maimone's fluid bass work on "I Will Wait" and "Navvy," periodically breaking down into ordered chaos. You can almost hear the fragile building bricks tumble on "Thriller!"When David Thomas idiosyncratically wails his asymmetrical way around "Ubu Dance Party," you sense a forced smile atop the group's thumping noise. Pere Ubu put down the ideas of which others could only dream. Thomas articulates his personal pain in jagged verbal shapes, while art wrestles pop into submission. DUB HOUSING, wrapped in a dark and uninviting sleeve, is named after the ambience of terraced homes in Baltimore. It's that sort of record.
