Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 01 / Trk 05 / Caroleen / Pere Ubu

Seems like our path is becoming tuneful and noisy. I only knew of Pere Ubu through reputation and Peter Murphy’s version of Final Solution (originally, a Rocket from the Tombs track). When they came through Basel in 2006 and played on a boat I thought it important to see what they were about. It was an art-noise-psych freakout, with David Thomas drinking whiskey and “singing” in front of it all. Happily blown away, I’ve been slowly picking up Pere Ubu albums ever since. Caroleen is from 2006’s Why I Hate Women.

And in the cool hours of the nite,
she kisses me and it rips my head off.
You know her name, rhymes with gasoline.
Her perfume, I think it’s turpenteen.
And I feel alive,
and I hope it’s love.
Caroleen, Caroleen, Caroleen, Caroleen.
Caroleen, Caroleen, Caroleen, Caroleen.

    I don’t how this string got so noisy. Will be interesting to see where it ends up. From Spoon to Pere Ubu. Who knew?

    I, not kidding, JUST YESTERDAY bought the Pere Ubu box set “Datapanik in the Year Zero,” which had been on order at the record store for 2.5 months.
