Boy That Sounds Swell

During the marathon day of shooting this weekend, I finished the Greil Marcus book. Nice long chapter on Dave Thomas and Pere Ubu, whose work I don't know nearly as well as I might. I do have a copy of Dub Housing which I like quite a bit. I know this band is legendary and all, but I still don't think they get their due, Marcuses and his ilk aside. Here's the lead track from Dub Housing, "Navvy." The two chimes at the top of the chorus get me every time. And there's something a little Malkmusy about the guitar intro. Enjoy.

Treat yourself.
