Pere Ubu - Birdies

First off, I have to give credit to Carl at Zoilus for introducing this video to me. Zoilus is probably one of the smartest, and creative music blogs on the net right. If he were ever to start posting mp3s, I seriously might consider quitting. Everything.

That said, I've never been a huge fan of Pere Ubu. They've always been of those bands who are too big, and too productive to become a fan of so late in the game. If only I had grown up a decade earlier. This video showcases a fascinating view of the band performing live from the documentary Urgh! A Music War. It's amazing how David Thomas is able to look like a disgruntled accountant, a madman, and a comedian at the same time. His performance alone has driven me to search out this documentary, or see them live in concert. Alas, Pere Ubu are releasing a new album next month. Live dates? Who knows? Word on the street: no.
