Great 9/10 review in Record Collector for Pere Ubu’s ‘Architecture of Language’ boxset out on March 18th! The 4 x LP box set encompasses releases from 1979 – 1982 with ‘New Picnic Time’, ‘Song of The Bailing Man’, ‘The Art Of Walking’ and a bonus of extras titled ‘Architectural Salvage’.

Everything about New Picnic Time suggests a group pushing upward, Allen Ravenstine’s abstract synthwaves and Tom Herman’s nerve-shredding guitars chasing the heights of David Thomas’s wobbly, exploratory falsetto” David Stubbs, Record Collector
