“Pere Ubu is not now nor has it ever been a viable commercial venture. We won’t sleep on floors, we won’t tour endlessly and we’re embarrassed by self-promotion. Add to that a laissez-faire attitude to the mechanics of career advancement and a demanding artistic agenda and you’ve got a recipe for real failure. That has been our one significant success to this date: we are the longest-lasting, most disastrous commercial outfit to ever appear in rock ‘n’ roll. No one can come close to matching our loss to longevity ratio.” – David Thomas

Pere Ubu es desde 1.978 y con varias interrupciones durante el camino, el proyecto musical de David Thomas. Con motivo de su imminente gira española, Sing Swan Songs repasa su trayectoria desde su primer LP, The Modern Dance, hasta el publicado este mismo año, Carnival of Souls.
