Utterly unique and marvelous, yet sorely unloved, Pere Ubu were and are a musical movement unto themselves. 

A double-banger this week as Graeme and music critic Grant Smithies dissect perhaps the band’s greatest peaks, their first 2 albums released in 1978, The Modern Dance and Dub Housing. 

Extended pieces from Graeme’s interview with Ubu’s David Thomas will feature as well.

Listen to the full audio with Grant Smithies above.

Weekend Variety Wireless with Graeme Hill, 8pm - midnight Saturdays and Sundays, on RadioLIVE and streaming live to the Rova app on Android and iPhone.
