A legendary band given to great games of antagonism, Pere Ubu helped shape what would come to be known as “post-punk” with an arty, noisy, scattered sound cooked up in Cleveland. It wasn’t exactly a hotbed of canonical rock back then, but the city’s cast-off industrial core would mean a lot in later years. That was in the ’70s; Pere Ubu returned in 2006 with Why I Hate Women, that maybe—just maybe—drew on the hostile streak that curmudgeonly bandleader David Thomas has made a career of. That may continue on the group's upcoming album, tentatively titled Lady From Shanghai. Expect some new material here.
