Adventures In Good Listening

My favorite late night driving music.
Pere Ubu, for me, could best be described as if David Lynch had a house band.

"I don't care if you never listen to another Pere Ubu record. It's not important. What is important is that you hear this record, as it is marvelous to hear. There are too many ideas here, crafted to perfection, to avoid. Not one swelling guitar riff is uninteresting. No electronic intersection is wasted...." DecoyMusic, Ben Rice
Blue Velvet, from Why I Hate Women (2006)

Suicide, a two man band light years ahead of their time.
"... I never heard anything avant-garde. To me it was just New York City Blues." -Alan Vega 1980
Rocket U.S.A, Suicide (1977)
