Story of Pere Ubu - 9

Ubu went home. Ubu rehearsed. Ubu learned five new songs --which seemed about right-- went into the studio, made up five new songs --which seemed about right-- and DUB HOUSING was done. The title was inspired by the echo-like terraced housing of the streets of Baltimore. In November, Ubu returned to tour in the UK, supported by The Human League and the Soft Boys, and in Europe, supported by Nico and 60s Texas psychedelic legends, The Red Crayola. A London audience bought tickets for the "Magical Mystery Ubu Tour," boarded buses to an unknown destination and found themselves in Chislehurst Caves watching Ubu play on an improvised stage in a hole in the cavern's chalk walls.
