Here's a handsome box of the first four singles, all in their original sleeves (that ought to take the teeth out of the bogus collector's market!). Singer David Thomas originally released these on his own Hearthan label (later Hearpen) from 1975-1977, pressing about 3,000 copies. Of the four, "Final Solution" is still the enduring classic, though "30 Seconds Over Tokyo" is wild, insidious, diseased music. These singles seem as commendably out there and forward thinking now as they did back then and, along with the band's first LP, The Modern Dance, capture Pere Ubu at its best. ~ Jack Rabid
