Band On The Wall, 2013

by Pere Ubu

  • Streaming + Download

    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    The Lady From Shanghai Tour saw Pere Ubu tour as a six piece band travelling across Europe. This gig from Band On The Wall, Manchester, April 18 2013, is everything that the band set out to achieve with the songs from their new album. David Thomas is on fine form with narratives between the songs that create an 'alternative reality' of the world as we know it - where Pere Ubu are global sensations and Jon Bon Jovi plays Holiday Inn Lounges in Jersey. And don't even ask what happened to Madonna...
    Glimpse this alternative reality on this recording. There are two bonus tracks from the encore when you download.
