Living Room Concert.. on December 10th in Farmington, Utah, near Salt Lake City.. The host can be reached at.. twrentz@gmail.. to make RSVPs and learn about suggested donations and directions.. Interviewer: Why was there no bass player for the 'Visions of the Moon' tour in Italy the UK?.. DT: Circumstances forced a range of scenarios.. At the same time I became obsessed with the new material we had been developing since July following the 'Carnival of Souls' performance.. The LFS project, as I have noted elsewhere, was the culmination of a 20 year project designed to integrate improvisation into the compositional process in a particular way.. The new material suggested the beginning of a new long-term project and I was anxious to get on with it rather than repeat LFS in the UK and Italy.. This suggested a 'shock troops' orientation for the Pere Ubu line-up since much of the performance would be improvised from night to night as ideas were explored.. Having both a drummer and a bass player in the band would constrain the process.. Bass players and drummers have a foolish notion that they should play together and it's hard to shake them from their convictions.. I went with a drummer - Michele had not been involved with the 'Carnival of Souls' because of scheduling conflicts but Steve had.. We are now working on bringing in Michele in a particular way reminiscent of the Chinese Whispers method.. WE HATE DAYS OFF, part 2.. The last 'We Hate Days Off' appeal resulted in a very special evening in Troyes, France.. We are now offering another Pere Ubu Living Room Concert opportunity Dec 15/16 for locations south of Portland and north of San Francisco.. Imagine the possibilities - David Thomas himself rummaging thru your frigerator.. Contact directors@ubuprojex.. net.. Dates for the West Coast tour of Lady From Shanghai have been announced on the.. Update 8/21/13: Visa Rejected.. Ubu Projex, the art and business directorate of the American band Pere Ubu, can confirm that notice has been received this weekend from the United States Customs Immigration Service (USCIS) rejecting the visa petition for British band members Keith Moliné and Graham Dowdall (aka Gagarin).. The sole grounds for rejection is the band's refusal to seek approval from the American Federation of Musicians (AFM).. "The AFM are the antagonists in this affair," band leader David Thomas said.. "They have no business telling me who can and who cannot be in the band.. ".. Details can be found in previous press releases,.. www.. ubuprojex.. net/press/ubuvisa.. pdf.. Cleveland guitarist Dave Cintron will join the band for the September US tour and provisions are in place for Moliné and Dowdall to link remotely for one of the songs in the set.. There has been much disbelief and incredulity about this not-uncommon example of the obstacles international bands now face when seeking to tour the US.. "The whole process has been going on since May, with several delays and absurd complexities," Thomas said.. "The Cintron version will be magnificent, I have no doubt.. If I cannot put a band together without government interference and without a pat on the head from the AFM, like a grateful dog, then so be it.. I have no interest in frittering my life away with campaigning.. "We will proceed with our music.. Nothing will be announced from the stage.. We won't be writing 'protest' songs or haranguing audiences.. "There are visions and ideas to pursue.. There's too little time to waste it on fighting stupidity.. In the words of the MGM lion,..

Following on from.. press release dated 8/11/13.. , Pere Ubu announce revised line-up and revolutionary remote performance from the two British group members.. Pere Ubu has added Cleveland guitar maestro Dave Cintron to the lineup for its September tour of the eastern USA and Canada.. Mr.. Cintron substitutes for British guitarist Keith Moliné, who is unable to enter the US due to the visa approval process delays, ongoing since May.. The group's second synthesizer, Gagarin, is also unable to join the band on tour, but plans are in progress to produce a remote performance live from their homes in London, by way of a complex  ...   on Geo Records..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: How Ubu Projex operates,.. how Pere Ubu functions.. What outsiders need to know:.. Press Photo Protocols.. Live Recording Permission, YouTube Bootlegs.. Licenses, cover versions film synch rights.. In-Stores.. Press Tours.. Benefit Concerts.. Sending tapes to the band.. Trivia Questions.. What insiders need to know:.. Leaving The Tour.. Studio Accounts.. Insurance.. Games Driving.. Per Diems.. Tour accounts procedures.. Penny/Pound Principle.. Crossing The Line.. Availability questions of Ubu Time.. What tour managers, promoters bands need to know:.. Basics.. Rock Rituals: Time support bands.. Stage Lights.. Introduction.. Some years ago we were touring with a popular young group.. They were friends.. One day I was talking to the leader about this that, passing the time, and we got around to the internal workings of our respective bands.. "You guys got a reputation for being democratic, you know, a communal group of equals and all that," I said.. "I got this reputation for being an unreasonable dictator.. So I suppose you vote on things, hunh?".. "Sure," Mr.. F said.. Me:.. "You're a four piece.. What happens when there's a tie?".. F:.. "I've got two votes.. "So the only way you get outvoted is if all three of the others stand together?".. "I suppose but if that happens we do what I want anyway.. The project basis of.. is described in.. The Story of Ubu.. Pere Ubu doesn't vote unless the outcome will be unanimous.. Opinions are polled and if anyone is likely to dissent a vote is deferred and nothing happens.. In practice we operate by consensus.. This has had disastrous commercial consequences.. It means that we sometimes don't do anything.. (When the situation becomes intolerable the only solution is to disband and reformat.. ) Over time a series of precedents has been established.. These protocols embody principles that have been accepted and are the basis for future decisions.. In this byzantine world even the simplest equation has unimaginable repercussions.. On the.. (from the English expression, "In for a penny, in for a pound.. "), for example, hangs everything Ubu.. Band meetings are rare events.. They usually have apocalyptic consequences.. Hence, the rarity.. When a band meeting is called everyone knows there's trouble coming.. In Ubu's history there have been only three or four of them.. Ubu is organized so as to minimize the need for conversation - no, so as to eliminate as far as possible.. any.. conversation.. This has evolved for two reasons: (1) David doesn't like talking; and, (2) in the early days it became clear to us that if you feel the need to yak on about something (specifically, art) then odds are you don't know what the hell you're talking about.. (This was carried to extremes by a long-time manager who would send emails to his assistant, sitting next to him, along the lines of, "Next time you go down to the kitchen bring me a coffee please.. ").. David Thomas is the day-to-day Project Director.. He proceeds down a course with greater or lessor band consultation, depending on circumstances.. As long as more of his decisions are reasonable than fewer then the band allows him to proceed.. (Historically, this has also been because he is the only band member ever to be in possession of the Nuclear Button.. ) One of the Project Director's responsibilities is to see to it that the Rules are maintained.. On tour the Project Director acts as Tour Manager.. Other duties are assigned to band members.. Guiding principle: the more you do a good job the more responsibility you get assigned.. Sometimes a band member will perform several functions.. These are:.. Promoter Liaison / Trouble-shooter.. : get paid, arrange for any unresolved rider issues, solve problems that involve the show with a cool head.. Pioneer.. : jump out of the truck at a moment's notice and find out what the hell is going on, i.. e.. where we are, where load-in is, etc.. Archivist.. : collect and preserve stuff.. Set-List.. : make sure there are set lists drawn up for each show and distributed.. The Nice Guy.. : talk to people.. nicely, pretending to be interested.. Merch Assistant.. : help David sell merchandise from the front of the stage, watch his back.. Enforcer.. : the less said about this the better.. Opposite of The Nice Guy.. Principle to keep in mind: Good Cop / Bad Cop.. The Penny/Pound Principle is our E=MC.. 2.. Think about this nightmare world:.. Once a principle has been accepted it becomes a rule the status quo.. The status quo is operative until it is changed by vote.. We don't vote if any one person doesn't want to vote.. The Rules serve to counterbalance the awesome inertia of the organization.. Ubu Projex operates on a Silence is Acceptance principle.. Members are informed.. If there are no objections the Project Director proceeds.. This allows for a member to Not Agree while also Not Disagreeing.. This is an invaluable organizational tool.. Somehow we muddle through.. So, yes, Pere Ubu operates by Rule.. And, no, Pere Ubu is NOT a democracy.. We are, if anything, a Republic.. In Pere Ubu you are responsible for yourself.. We are a collection of moderately responsible adults who choose to work together as independent agents, pooling our talents and sharing in the rewards of whatever our talents are worth in the marketplace.. We are all independent contractors.. No one is an employee.. This goes for crew band management.. For other miscellaneous.. Guiding Light.. principles click.. Taking Pictures Press Protocol.. Pere Ubu won't have its picture taken for press or promotional purposes.. anywhere in public.. , i.. anywhere that civilians can see us getting our picture taken.. We prefer studios or out of the way locations.. It is a shameful thing for a man to pose for a picture and we seek to hide our shame from the public.. Photographers, note: we will not run or jump or do anything.. Don't ask.. Don't think you can wear us down.. Many have tried.. We do NOT relax.. Photos may be taken freely and without restriction during concerts by professionals or fans, with flashes or without flashes, for fun or for no fun.. We don't care as long as you stay off the stage and don't bother others.. We reserve the right to be totally and absolutely arbitrary.. It is our art.. 3.. Please note that David Thomas, when performing in one of his solo groups, should not be described as.. ex-Pere Ubu.. or.. formerly of Pere Ubu.. He does not blink in and out of existence.. This seems to be a very hard concept for writers to come to grips with but he remains a member of Pere Ubu while playing with the pale boys, buying groceries or taking a bath.. 4.. Mr Thomas is happy to do written interviews via.. as long as it's understood that anything interesting will be posted at the web site.. In-person, face to face interviews can be arranged-- contact the.. Directors.. of Ubu Projex.. 5.. Please print our web site address:.. net.. 6.. For press tour requirements.. see below.. Live Recording Permission Bootlegs.. To find the procedures involved in recording a cover version of an Ubu song, see.. For private, archival, radio, etc.. recordings you need to get our written approval.. Check with.. concerning the procedure.. You need to sign a letter of agreement that guarantees the following:.. In the case of a sound recording you will give us a DAT digital copy of the master on the night.. In the case of a video recording you will give us a copy in an agreed format.. We can do what we like with these copies, including commercial release in which you can have no financial interest.. We will need to know: (1) the name of the station or network; (2) the recording method; and (3) the intended broadcast date and time.. You can have no commercial rights.. We have the absolute right of veto.. No costs charged to us.. We reserve the right to be absolutely arbitrary.. We trust the following: VPRO (Holland), Couleur 3 Radio (Switzerland) and Danish Broadcasting Corporation (solely on the basis of the King of Denmark's defense of the jews in WWII).. Others will be treated with suspicion.. How do you feel about audience recording for personal home use?.. We will not give permission for that sort of recording.. We will not make any attempt to discourage it or stop it.. We will not ask the venue to act and we will not act ourselves.. usually.. If we see mic stands going up and some elaborate rig in place, or if we don't feel good about any aspect of the situation, we will act to put a stop to it.. Discreet and respectful people have no worries.. If you do record a show we expect you to send us a good quality copy.. Asking to patch into the soundboard gets a curt, dismissive "no" and will get you banned from recording.. Putting up mics around the soundboard achieves the same end.. Bugging our soundman for any reason gets the same.. I recently had posted the Rocket from the Tombs Jack Slack Lp, on Ebay and was threatened with legal action by your agent for doing so.. I purchased this record legally in Canada over 10 years ago and believe I had every right to post and sell this record.. I will attach below the emails from your agent.. I removed the record for sale to prevent any possible infringement on your rights.. Please let me know your position on this matter.. The album you refer to is an illegal bootleg.. Regardless of whether or not it's been bought in good faith, there is no such thing as legal ownership of stolen property.. Go out and buy a stolen necklace in good faith.. See what happens.. If someone sells a legal copy of a copyrighted work that is a perfectly sound and normal transaction.. It is the foundation of all commerce.. There is, however, no such thing as legal ownership of stolen property.. There are no circumstances of law anywhere on the planet I dare say that allow for legal ownership of something stolen.. Clearly this incident may seem like an unfair situation from your end but, on the other hand, if you're honest about it, you probably knew it was a bootleg when you bought it.. A bootleg is stolen property.. Of course everyone has bootlegs and we're pretty loose about this when it comes to fans trading bootlegs with each other privately.. It seems to me that going on eBay is the equivalent of being indiscreet.. As you note, not being discreet calls down the hammer.. The reason for this "don't ask, don't tell" policy is that we have no problem with fans doing what fans do but if you allow public exploitation of your work to go unpunished then you devalue it.. By entering into a commercial transaction you have left the safe confines of fandom wherein the discreet non-commercial trading or exchange of bootlegs, for example, would be overlooked.. We are not seeking to strip you of your bootleg and if you return to the safe confines of fandom then you will slip beneath our vision and that will be the end of the story.. In the marketplace, however, you are expected to play by the rules.. Smog Veil, the legally licensed copyright holder of the RFTT recordings, has a right, and as far as we're concerned, a duty, to protect their investment - an investment that has been distributed to all the musicians and writers of the recordings.. Jack Slack, it might be noted, has never paid anyone anything.. We have our eye on the person behind Jack Slack.. He has been warned.. So my question to you is, What do you want from me? I am sympathetic.. But I also play by the rules.. And I play by them even when they don't go in my favor-- which like yourself probably seems like much of the time.. On the subject of YouTube.. Responses to Fan Enquiries.. For the latest see.. Our position on fan usage of bootlegs is very clear.. We are happy for fans to do what fans do.. Some of us are, or used to be, fans.. To our undying shame there is an Ubu musician who trolls Russian web sites for Yes bootlegs.. To repeat, as long as you do not enter the marketplace we are happy.. None of the submitters asked our permission to upload to the site.. If they had we may or may not have given permission depending on quality of recording and quality of performance.. And on any number of intangibles.. "We reserve the right to be arbitrary - it is our art.. We are not interested in self-promotion if the cost is loss of editorship.. Recordings of live events are not accurate reproductions of the event.. The concert experience cannot be captured on tape.. It is a gestalt of innumerable real-life sensations that fill each moment as it goes by and then are lost forever in the time stream.. We almost always choose bootleg style recordings in preference to mobile multi-track recordings when we compile live records.. But the operative word is "choose.. " WE choose.. We are uniquely and solely qualified to be the editors of our own work.. We have paid the price.. In regard to YouTube, we were not asked.. We did not choose.. The fans of Pere Ubu do not own us.. Their money does not buy us.. It buys our productivity - we determine our productivity.. Without control of our productivity we abdicate our uniqueness.. We owe nothing to our fans but the determination to maintain the quality, vision and uniqueness of our productivity.. (But, to be truly accurate, we do not owe our fans even that - we owe ourselves.. ) Otherwise then why don't you just send us a monthly check because we are who we are? Of course not.. It's a one way street.. The bus runs one way.. You can get on the bus or not.. But if you get on the bus you can't then tell the driver to go by the mini-mart on Payne.. What is particularly galling is the law in this matter.. As you discovered we own the copyright and any posting of our material violates that copyright unless it is licensed.. When we discover a violation we inform YouTube and they promptly remove the material.. However, the law is written in such a way that should the same material be posted after a week, or weeks (I'm unsure of the time frame), YouTube is legally permitted to host the new posting until they are AGAIN notified of the violation - even though it may be the same material.. You can imagine then that for a small company of artists like ourselves this becomes a matter of constantly policing the site.. It becomes a significant waste of time and energy.. And it constitutes what I would call a form of harassment.. Though not legally.. So here we are, two different parties viewing the law from two different angles, both frustrated by the same law.. It is our stated policy that if you ask permission to post we will consider it after you supply us with a 1:1 digital copy of the material.. I do not know what you posted.. I have no interest in viewing these clips and more to the point, I simply don't have the time.. In our current state of irritation we must now consider changing our policy.. If we license some material and refuse license to other material it means that we will have to spend even more time and effort weeding out what is permitted and what is not.. At the moment we can send a notification saying that everything they have is in violation.. It's irritating but still simple.. If we permit some and refuse others then the process becomes even more time-consuming..  ...   novel Catch 22 for a full understanding of the principles involved.. Leaving the tour causes anxiety whatever happens and potential loss for the tour if something goes wrong.. We will not discourage the activity but it becomes your problem in all facets.. Band policy is that each person is responsible for his/her own equipment, period.. This policy is not arbitrary but has deep roots in the structure of the organization, why we do things, etc.. Along the way, we introduced a "Strings Skins Supplement" where tour budgets or recording budgets will wear it.. It is a supplement at a flat rate.. It is not meant to cover the cost or to be a reimbursement.. It is a distribution to all members to aid in the cost of supplies.. Per diems for studio rehearsal sessions: For out-of-towners per diems are at the base rate, for in-towners they are at half the base rate.. 1) Insurance for instruments personal belongings is the sole responsibility of the individual.. THIS PROVISION HAS BEEN SUSPENDED (8/25/6).. Ubu Projex will arrange this for anyone who wants it at a competitive rate on the Ubu Projex company policy.. This is outside the tour budget.. The cost of insurance will be deducted from monies due you.. If you are not insured and someone half inches your instrument in darkest Bavaria it is your hard luck and Ubu Projex is not bound to help out.. The same applies to road damage and the like (ie: the crew are to do their best to look after the gear but if your instrument isn't properly cased it's at your risk).. Irreplaceable gear should always be secured overnight.. It is your responsibility to confirm that this is the case.. 2) When possible, Travel Insurance supplement will be paid based on the rate for a year's cover as available in the UK.. The amount paid will be pro-rated according to the number of weeks an individual works on Ubu tour recording projex in a calendar year versus the total number of Ubu work weeks scheduled in that calendar year.. It is your responsibility to arrange your own travel insurance, to cover sickness and accident, etc.. If you're not insured and you fall ill on tour then you're solely responsible for any medical costs and extra travel costs, etc.. All games are based on The Price Is Right rules.. All traffic tickets for moving violations are the sole responsibility of the driver.. Parking tickets are the sole responsibility of the driver unless he is simply following orders.. Small Town Cop Override:.. You are driving thru the no man's land between Croatia and Serbia.. You are stopped by a Croatian Police road check who insist you passed another vehicle on a bridge which is a very serious offense in Croatia according to the Traffic Code brandished in your face.. You look back.. There is nothing that a reasonable person would define as a "bridge.. " You look ahead.. You see the UN checkpoint and the fact that this is the last chance they have to punish you for wanting to go to Serbia.. Ruling: Driver is not responsible.. Tour Accounts Procedures.. dated 11/13/88, amended 09/07/95 7/3/97 8/25/6.. PAYMENTS.. In principle, as a goal, roadie/soundman per diems will be paid by the week in advance each Sunday.. Payment of roadie/soundman wages on a regular weekly basis is the goal.. Sunday will be payday for the week passed.. Cash flow undoubtedly will determine the practicality of this plan.. Payment of advances on salary, if weekly wage payments are up to date, will be paid only if it's convenient for Accounts.. Floats are to be reconciled weekly.. Per diems for band members will be paid regularly if cash flow permits.. Band members are expected, however, to be self-financing for the first few dates of the tour and should equip themselves with sufficient funds and currency to manage their own financial needs for several days.. DEPARTURES.. Each person is responsible for his own hotel 'extras' (personal telephone charges, room service, etc.. ), including any bills normally reimbursed from Accounts.. Extras should be paid at least 30 minutes before departure time to allow the Road Manager to settle up the group's hotel account with a minimum of confusion.. If the bus departure time from the hotel is set for 9 am this means that all musicians road personnel should on the bus for that time.. Paying extras, eating breakfast, all things must be accomplished before that time.. When flying with the entire band equipment, check-in times at the airport are as follows: no later than two hours for international flights, and 90 minutes for domestic flights.. It is the individual's responsibility to know departure times and showtimes.. REIMBURSEMENTS.. A single invoice must not demand reimbursement from more than one project and each demand must be clearly identified as to which project it's being directed.. Receipts must be submitted.. It is the responsibility of the individual to obtain receipts.. You will not be reimbursed without one.. ON TOUR.. In cases where record companies are paying tour support wages then payment is based on a seven day week.. Partial weeks are paid according to the formula: x/7 multiplied by the weekly fee.. The first day of the first week begins the authorized day of departure from place of residence.. The last day of the last full or partial week paid is the day of return to place of residence according to the Tour Schedule.. If a musician or road technician leaves the tour all travel/hotel costs incurred by that individual during such time are the sole responsibility of that individual.. This includes any all costs incurred because of unexpected changes in the tour itinerary, cancellations, breakdowns, etc.. Leaving the tour means the making of independent travel or accommodation plans.. See the specific protocol.. If a musician or road technician joins an Ubu tour from another tour, or leaves an Ubu tour for another tour, then only half the relevant travel costs are payable by Ubu Projex.. The same principle applies to recording sessions.. In no case will Ubu Projex pay travel costs exceeding the amount it would have paid had such individual traveled to or from his place of residence.. For the purposes of Ubu Accounts a person is allowed only one place of residence.. Each tour has a Budget Currency.. (As a rule, the English pound is the currency for Europe and the dollar for the USA.. ) Tours are budgeted using Budget Exchange Rates for foreign currency conversions to the Budget Currency.. The Exchange Rate is the rate at which foreign currency is actually converted to Budget Currency.. It is related to the Tourist Rate.. The Bank Rate is the real value of the currency as determined by international money markets.. The Budget Exchange Rate is based on the Exchange Rate but it is set on a best-guess basis at the time the tour budget is worked out.. It is the rate at which crew or musicians who are working on a fee-basis agree to be paid regardless of what happens to the Bank Rate or Exchange Rate.. Where possible wages are paid in the Home Currency of the recipient.. Home Currency payments are always made using the Bank Rate.. Per diem payments are made using the tourist rate.. Wages paid on the road in foreign currencies are at the Budget Exchange Rate.. The Tour Accountant is not responsible for providing local currencies for personal needs.. This is the sole responsibility of the individual.. From time to time he may offer the service as a matter of convenience.. Ubu Projex will happily convert pounds to $s at the best possible rate (it's always better to do this in London and not in the US!) on the last day of the tour - but it is your responsibility to co-ordinate this with UP.. Very important: Avoid exchanging any foreign currency in the US.. Avoid having excesses of non pounds (francs and marks etc) as you lose on the exchange rate if you convert in London to $s.. Most coins are NOT exchangeable.. Often the best idea is to exchange pocket money at borders.. This is the only guaranteed place to exchange coins.. Avoid double exchanges.. If you're on the German side of the German-Danish border and you want to exchange krone for Belgian francs then the border bank will first exchange it to dmarks and then the dmarks to Belgian francs, taking a commission each time.. Addendum dated 09/08/95.. At 12:32 pm 9/7/95, MR STEVEN A MEHLMAN wrote:.. what are floats?.. A float is a chunk of money put into someone's care for the purpose of paying expenses.. For example: two vehicles.. Tour manager in one, road crew or band member in the other, each has a float to take care of expenses.. At the end of a period of time, accounts are settled.. Receipts and balance of cash handed over.. you mentioned cabs, are we really to be reimbursed.. for cabs?.. If you are instructed to take a cab for the purposes of the tour, then, yes.. Personal use for convenience, no.. what can we be reimbursed.. for?.. Authorized expenses that involve the function of the tour is the short answer.. A PD protocol question:.. Band member travels to a show a few days before show and returns a few days after show, under his/her own steam, as they have friends to stay with in that town.. Do we pay them a PD for only the day of the show? Or do we pay them for their travel days, equal to the other band members?.. If he's going to the town just because of our show then he should be paid per diems for the working time plus 2 travel days - staying over for tourism or any nonwork reason is irrelevant.. If he's combining the trip with other work then he should be paid ONE travel day per diem and NOT TWO and the cost of his work permit should be split between the two works (though if he wouldn't have got a work permit for his other work then I don't think we should charge him a share of the work permit costs).. Quote from DIRECTOR'S MEETING January 6 1990:.. The Penny/Pound Principle is the non-negotiable bottom line.. If an Ubu musician, partner or not, expects equal footing with other Ubu musicians he must be prepared to take the good with the bad.. If he expects to be offered any all Ubu work he must make himself exclusively available for any all Ubu work.. Once an Ubu musician, partner or not, makes himself unavailable for Ubu work he is liable to be replaced with no guarantee or assured expectation of reinstatement.. A band member "crosses the line" when he/she threatens the integrity of the band because of an attitude or course of action.. When a member crosses the line they become poison in the system that must be purged immediately.. One Rule is non-negotiable and inviolate:.. The Penny/Pound Principle.. Letter dated JAN 15 1990.. Ubu was reformed on a project year basis.. (A project year is longer than 12 months.. ) A project year is determined by an lp lifetime which in practice seems to begin with the actual studio recording (the point at which money comes due from a record company) and end with the last required group work in support of the lp.. During a project year a band member keeps himself available for Ubu work.. At the end of a project year a member can choose to not re-up.. In practice, members consult with the.. of Ubu Projex so far as possible mutually agreed schedules are arrived at.. It has been clearly stated accepted that the onus is with the individual member to clear his schedule with the.. of Ubu Projex before committing to personal work.. If necessary, members are left out of sub-projects when scheduling conflicts arise the promotional or business opportunity available is judged to be too important to pass up.. No expense for the production of.. tour itineraries.. is reimbursable beyond basic printing on ordinary paper, basic binding (if staples won't do), and postage.. No color or fancy stuff will be reimbursed.. We're not children to be amused by bright colors.. Pre-paid.. phone cards.. are not reimburseable.. You must have a watch, pocket or wrist.. Truck Time is official tour time.. The truck is our only friend.. The way on is the way off.. If circumstance require that we have to walk onto the stage from the audience we will walk off the stage thru the audience.. We will not hide in a cupboard off-stage waiting on the silly encore ritual.. All musicians should be in the dressing room 30 minutes before showtime.. Road manager announces stage clear at which point Ubus do final instrument checks and then report back to the dressing room.. 5 minute marks start at 15 minutes to show.. Soundman reports Good to go at 3 minutes to show and leaves with an encouraging word.. Road manager reports Good to go at the 90 second mark and disappears.. Musicians gather at stage entry point at 30 seconds to show.. Rituals.. Pere Ubu shows up.. on time.. We expect everyone else to be on time.. No, no.. wait, we're not anywhere near that reasonable.. ahead.. of time.. If you show up ON TIME you're already late as far as we're concerned.. The sole function of an.. opening act.. is to start on time and to stop on time.. Period.. Do NOT book Pere Ubu unless you agree to this.. When Pere Ubu is an opening act we start on time, we stop on time, and we don't do an encore.. We don't expect to get a soundcheck and we don't expect to get to do a full show.. Those are the rules by which rock music functions.. Do not try to change them.. You are not a musician and you have no rights in this matter.. Mr Thomas in particular is very sensitive to time.. If Ubu is appearing in a festival, or in a non-headline capacity, we will NOT do an encore no matter what unless the duly-authorized stage manager tells us face to face.. In the past this has led to upset when we have refused to go out again without this specific authorization.. We play by the rules beyond the point of sanity.. We expect others to do the same.. Lights.. We are always happy when the lights are simply set, focused, turned on and left alone during the show.. Overhead lights should be focused on the center mic and bass player positions.. We need to read notes.. Mr Thomas does not like flashing lights.. Light scenes can shift but avoid flashing.. No smoke-machines are to be used during our performance.. Lighting should be theatrical rather than rockist.. We are interested in atmosphere, mood, drama, energy, subtlety, imagination-- not rock cliche.. Please do not use patterned gobos.. Mr Thomas finds patterned light routines to be particularly offensive.. Lights should be carefully focused on Mr Thomas and the band not directed at the audience.. Please try to avoid EXCESSIVE backlighting.. Lights must never fade to black between songs.. Light comes mostly from above not from below.. A handy tip to keep in mind is that the sun is up.. As for giveaways that's up to you.. I never like them cuz I hate giving stuff away so it depends on whether the promotional advantage is worth promoting a welfare-state mentality within the populace of the USA.. That's a decision I leave to you.. along with its karmic load.. Long ago we determined what trivia questions are to be used for Pere Ubu giveaways.. Choose one:.. Name two of General Lee's corps commanders at Gettysburg.. Quote one of Henry David Thoreau's aphorisms.. Name the author of this line: "Then I saw the Congo, creeping through the black, cutting through the forest with a golden track..

    Descriptive info: This Page:.. Ubu Projex Special Products.. Interviewers, Please Note:.. Before formulating your questions please go to the list of.. FAQs.. and read the relevant FAQ(s).. If nothing else, read the.. Most Frequently Asked Questions.. FAQ.. Note to the publicist:.. "I really do feel bad not doing a good interview but there was.. nothing.. to work with in it.. Thank you for asking how to make things better.. I don't like doing interviews at the venue before shows and I.. hate.. doing them afterwards - I am exhausted.. If you tell me it's important I will but at a show I am there to do the show and then meet members of the audience, not have my time stolen by pop culture functionaries.. The purpose of doing interviews around a tour is to sell tickets.. An interview on the day of the show clearly does not accomplish that so I see no point to it.. (The interview will presumably sell albums, of course, but it will sell as many if I do it before or after the tour.. ) I don't care if the mag is a sloppy fanzine, an inconsequential blog or the New York Times - it's all the same to me.. as long as it's interesting.. I prefer email but I am fine doing them over the phone.. In person is fine but I'm not traveling up to London, period - unless you tell me it's important to waste that amount of time and money.. I am good at interviews if the interviewer puts any amount of effort into preparing, or even if he just asks good questions off the top of his head.. I will not talk any more about the `70s or the 'industrial wastelands' of Cleveland or 'duh, what was it like.. ' I simply can't force myself to smile and go thru it.. I've worked long and hard on the website.. Everything I will ever say is there.. I am delighted if an interviewer has researched and asks actual follow-on questions.. Here's the truth: I'm an old man facing the end of his life.. I can't be bothered with crap any more.. I'll talk at length, entertaining, being insightful - all of it - but don't approach me like I'm a fluffy pop wannabe.. and don't make me do all the work.. Forty years ago I too was a music journalist.. I know the game.. Bottom line: I have expressed my thoughts on the subject..

Written and compiled by Pere Ubu founder David Thomas, MIRROR MAN is a hybrid of neo-Beat opera and tent meeting testimony.. It is an oratorio.. Or maybe it is theatre vague.. Or a rogue opera.. Or a song-cycle of "haunted" geographical presences.. Or a roll call of voices retrieved from all those ghost towns that lie just over the horizon..

David Thomas presents a journey through the ghost towns of America.. Along  ...   the face of a neon land, trailing clouds of dust and dogs.. The story goes Somewhere and ends Nowhere.. It represents a different kind of writing; a form that went into a state of metamorphosis before the time of Homer, emerging from its chrysalis in 1877 as a new creation.. A hundred years of maturation followed.. The writing is become hieroglyphic.. David Thomas writes according to the unique narrative architecture that has evolved over the century since Edison invented the phonograph/microphone, and over the decades since Ike Turner recorded 'Rocket 88' in 1951.. This is a poetry book that doesn't look like a poetry book.. It's a novel that doesn't look like a novel.. It's a story that doesn't look like a story.. It's a film that doesn't look like a film.. It's a song that doesn't sound out loud.. Rock and roll makes you pay attention.. It reveals ghosts.. It reveals ghost towns..

  • Title: City Desk / Farm Report
    Descriptive info: City Desk / Farm Report.. Blue Jet Corp, catalog: EML-101 and EML-200.. 12" vinyl singles cut at 45RPM.. Released Feb 11 2013.. Limited to 500 copies each.. Farm Report (#EML-101):.. Sunrise in Milan 5:51.. Twilight With Crickets 2:56.. City Desk (#EML-200):.. A Nocturne 4:39.. A Morning Mood 4:43.. In the spring of 2012, Allen Ravenstine and Robert Wheeler travelled to historic Grant Avenue Studio in Hamilton, Ontario, to appear in.. I Dream of Wires.. , a film documentary about the role of modular synthesizers in electronic music.. Canadian Filmmaker Robert Fantinatto dedicated 20 minutes to an interview with the two pioneers of industrial electronics, and their choice of the unique EML Electrocomp synthesizer as a performance instrument in Pere Ubu.. Allen Ravenstine was a composer, patron and pioneer of the burgeoning Cleveland arts scene in the early 1970's.. As synthesist with Pere Ubu, playing the EML-200 and later the EML-101, he earned international acclaim for his inspired use of industrial sound before retiring from popular music in the late 1980's.. His approach to live performance - rejecting the traditional tonal keyboard for an intuitive wash of modulated noise - has been much imitated but rarely equaled.. Robert Wheeler (of Home Garden) joined Pere Ubu in 1994, playing the EML-101 and  ...   York City.. Perhaps because the two had never played together before, the recordings that followed have a magical quality; a voyage of mutual discovery in a genre that they had pioneered a decade apart.. At points one or the other musician would leave the room, letting the antique synthesizer fill in his parts until he returned.. Engineer Bob Doidge described the experience as watching "four hands attached to one body.. " It was virtually impossible to discern where Ravenstine began and Wheeler ended.. Two days of tape were edited into bookend albums of hypnotizing music.. A double cd release is planned for the near future.. Scraps and sound effects from the sessions were assembled to create a pair of eccentric singles, released on audiophile vinyl.. "This project is the work of two friends with mutual respect and a profound shared intelligence," Wheeler said.. "Electronic meditations, musique d'ameublement, imaginary landscapes; there are dozens of ways of describing the end result of this remarkable collaboration.. The fact is that you have probably never heard anything quite like it.. The descriptors, 'City Desk' and 'Farm Report,' were drawn from the signature lines of their personal correspondence; an in-joke referencing the not-so-great divide between Gramercy Park and the Homer Page Farm in Milan, Ohio..
