A song about sound.
On The Surface
This is another song about sound. The sound tape is a Dutch radio phone-in.
Title inspired by the terraced houses of Baltimore's streets and this seems to have something to do with the way people are.
This is a song about residents of the Plaza seen driving a pickup truck with stereo dogs in the back.
Recorded at the Discohome, a pink house in Cleveland Heights shared by David Thomas & John Thompson. Part home, part record store, it featured a mock-up of the Hollywood Squares in the living room.
I Will Wait
This is a song about the Flats, written on returning from the first European tour.
Ubu Dance Party
The sound tape is a National Weather Bureau broadcast.
For reference see one of those beatnik-era records like BONGOS BONGOS BONGOS.
The soundtrack to one of those time delay movies of a day passing quickly over a city with clouds racing overhead and lights flowing like blood..
Written as an excuse to start the album with "It's me again."
49 Guitars & One Girl
Another song about sound.
A Small Dark Cloud
Small Was Fast
And yet another song about the sound of things.
All The Dogs Are Barking
Tony noted that when things on the street went weird all the dogs in the Plaza began barking at once. Al Green was big at the time.
One Less Worry
Related to Dub Housing.
The farewell. Ubu was in trouble.
The Voice of The Sand
The lyrics are taken from a poem by Vachel Lindsay. David's father did his Master's on Lindsay. A recording of Lindsay reading his work became a huge influence on his singing style. Tim/Kerr Records is run by great nephew of the man.
