Description: The working title for the next Pere Ubu album is "Lady From Shanghai." The initial aim for the project is to "fix" dance, as "Long Live Pere Ubu!" was conceived as a project to "fix" theater. People ask, Well, what kind of dance are you talking about: classical, ballet, pop, Broadway? The answer is, All of it. Dance encourages the body to move without permission. That's a fundamental flaw. It must be solved. These songs are somewhere between demos and works-in-progress. They are far from completed. They are at the place where the ideas are coalescing. They will continue to evolve as instruments, parts and ideas are added and fleshed out. The titles are working titles and so they may or may not change. People ask, How do you write songs? Here is a glimpse at one methodology.
