Pere Ubu - Song Of The Bailing Man


On this date in 1982, Pere Ubu released their fifth studio album, Song Of The Bailing Man. There were no singles released from the album (this was typical of the band). The Cleveland avant-garde/proto punk band formed when Rocket From The Tombs disbanded. Dave Thomas and Peter Laughner formed Pere Ubu while fellow Rocket From The Tombs band members, Cheetah Chrome and Johnny Blitz, formed The Dead Boys. Pere Ubu continues to release music.
