I don’t need a cure …

I read a review once calling Pere Ubu’s “Final Solution” one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll records of all time … the only downside is that maybe five people outside of Cleveland heard it upon its 1976 release.

“However,” the reviewer said, “all five of those people told their friends.”

Which is a good thing, as this video so clearly states.

However, it’s a testament to Dave Thomas and the rest of Pere Ubu that the combined talents of TV on the Radio, Peter Murphy of Bauhaus and Trent Reznor (Mr. Nine Inch Nails himself) couldn’t match the original recording, as good as their version is.

So yeah, go tell your friends now.
