Boomkat Product Review:
David Thomas and his Pere Ubu cohorts are back with the next stage in their album cycle begun with 'Lady From Shanghai' (2013). "A number of the songs were developed from an underscore composed for the movie Carnival Of Souls, performed by The Pere Ubu Film Group in July 2013. The cd and vinyl releases are slightly different. The vinyl release does not include the song 'Brother Ray.' The cd release does not include the five 'Strychnine Interludes.' The reason is straight-forward: 'Brother Ray' is twelve minutes long and would not fit on the vinyl without serious fidelity compromises. (LP sides much over eighteen minutes in length are not possible without consequences.) Keith Moliné came up with five minute-long pieces he conceived as links between songs. These were added to the vinyl running order. Keith describes the method he used for the 'Interludes': "The 'Strychnine Interludes' are based on a single, time-stretched note of the guitar riff played at the head of 'Road to Utah.' Melodies from 'Drag the River,' 'Visions of the Moon,' and 'Bus Station' appear out of shortwave interference as radio call signs. The unidentified radio voices are David Thomas reading 'Last of the Mohicans.' 'Strychnine 5' has Morse code spelling out 'Merdre Merdre.'"
