Pere Ubu (US) 

Pere Ubu's latest album is perhaps the most extensive orchestration of the band so far, with 9 professional musicians coming together to produce '20 Years In A Montana Missile Silo.' Following on from the success of their last album, ‘Carnival Of Souls,’ from which two tracks were used in cult TV show ‘American Horror Story,’ it is the latest in an extensive collection of albums that span the band’s 40+ year history. For this latest album, Kristof Hahn (Swans), joins the band on all tracks. 

In 1975, the Pere Ubu project was supposed to be an end, not a beginning. Assembled to be the Crosby Stills Nash & Young of the Cleveland music underground, the plan was to record one, maybe two singles and exist no more. Within months, however, those first self-produced records were being snapped up in London, Paris, Manchester, New York and Minneapolis. Pere Ubu was changing the face of rock music. Over the next four decades they defined the art of cult; refined the voice of the outsider; and inspired the likes of Joy Division, Pixies, Husker Du, Henry Rollins, REM, Sisters of Mercy, Thomas Dolby, Bauhaus, Julian Cope and countless others. With all their past material recently reissued, Pere Ubu are one of the few bands of that era still consistently producing new material that captures the attention of music critics worldwide. Despite the division of those critics desperately trying to categorize them into genre in the early years, there is now a consensus that they are exclusively Avant Garage; still breaking new ground, outside of genre and outside of any media enforced pigeonholes.

Après des heures fastes, il est grand temps que quelqu’un injecte une bonne dose de stimulant dans le corps fatigué d’un punk synthétique recroquevillé sur lui-même. Bracco semble bien partis pour prendre le job : les deux parisiens débarquent furieusement avec une verve venue d’un rock’n’roll plus américain qu’à l’accoutumée. Guitares incontrôlables, incarnation hantée, le tout mâtiné d’une trame éléctronique qui réveillent sans fausse pudeur les plus virulents fantômes de Suicide : Bracco a retourné le canon de la carabine cold et le braque désormais sur vos fronts.

Enregistré live et capté en vidéo, POV ne forme certes qu’une première sommation, mais lance à pleine allure l’inévitable blietzkrieg. Les deux loubards y posent les bases de leur palette : tension, attitude et sueur, déclinés en 3 rounds tous plus exaltés les uns que les autres.
