    'No one out-bootlegs Pere Ubu's bootlegs.' (Irony-freeTM)

    This was the night BEFORE the 'Urgh! A Music War' gig, which was to become one of the most widely publicized nights in Ubu's history. This lead-up gig was recorded at the Fox Warfield Theater. David Thomas says that this show was better than the one that went into the record books. He says of it, "It was vibrant and more energized." Mayo Thompson makes his first live tape appearance to date, as part of The Art Of Walking tour.
    This show was bootlegged and marketed by unknowns who have never paid Pere Ubu a cent of their proceeds or approached us as a mark of respect. So, Mr Thomas has personally mastered the original tape - Pere Ubu's own recording of the concert that has sat on a shelf all these decades.
    We have made it cheaper than the other guys - we checked. Bonus item is page concerning 'Urgh!' from the official scrapbook. You can purchase full scrapbook on bandcamp from the merch page.
