Listing Detail Tabs

Dub Housing was the second essential album from the completely unique and amazing Pere Ubu and what a landmark it was, fusing garage punk aesthetics with a prog sense of adventure and topping it off with a completely unpretentious image; these guys looked like model tank geeks rather than rockers!

“Navvy” sets the scene with a burst of squealing feedback before busting out the riffs overlaid with David Thomas’ strangulated vocals and loads of white noise synths.
The title track is another amazing song, which rides in on a slinky bass riff interspersed with sheets of grinding guitar and dub dread.
Elsewhere the album has more awesome rockin’ grooves like the twisted sea-shanty “Caligari’s Mirror” and the skanking drunken jubilance of “(Pa) Ubu Dance Party” juxtaposed with more creepy art-rock oddities like “Thriller”, “I Will Wait” and “Drinking Wine Spodyody”.
This incredible album comes to an end with the paranoid brilliance of “Codex”, a stomping mess of clattering drums, tolling synths and layers of funereal guitars; beautifully nasty!
