Collecting the bracing and brilliant Pere Ubu in their earliest incarnation, with the devastating one-two knockout blow of 1978 studio bookends “The Modern Dance” and “Dub Housing”, followed by “The Hearpen Singles (1975-1977)” and a red hot live set “Manhattan”, recorded at the legendary Max’s Kansas City in 1977; “Elitism For The People 1975-78” serves as a gut punch. As vital as ever, no band before or since has ever sounded like Pere Ubu – period.

Working from the original 2-track analogue mix tapes, Paul Hamann at Suma transferred to digital at the highest resolution available, at least four times the resolution of CD audio. Then, the tracks were carefully re-mastered by sonic architect Brian Pyle so as to capture the unique qualities within; the resulting listening experience is truly mind-blowing.
