Pere Ubu Biography

Smash the Hegemony of Dance. Stand still.

The new Pere Ubu album, 'Lady From Shanghai,' is scheduled for release in January 2013, the thirty-fifth anniversary of the group's debut ('The Modern Dance').

"The dancer is the puppet of the dance," says singer David Thomas. "It's long past time somebody puts an end to this abomination. 'Lady From Shanghai' has fixed the problem.

"What is the problem? Dance encourages the body to move without permission."

'Lady From Shanghai' is an album of dance music... fixed.
