Trouble was coming. Musical differences turned into ugly personal squabbles and plagued the SONG OF THE BAILING MAN sessions. A miserable winter's tour of the US finished the group off. Ubu had run its course. No attempt was made to revitalize the project. No one phoned. No one spoke. No one wanted to know. Months passed. Sometime in 1982 Ubu stopped and nothing happened again until 1987.
