PERE UBU NEWS – New Pere Ubu Studio Album, Long Live Pere Ubu!, Available Digitally At hearpen.com September 15th, 2009. The album will be released on CD in the rest of the world by British label, Cooking Vinyl, on September 16th, 2009. Pere Ubu’s online-only record store, hearpen.com, is administered by Smog Veil Records. The album was inspired by the proto-Absurdist stage play that gave the band its name – Alfred Jarry’s ‘Ubu Roi’ (King Ubu). The play’s premiere in Paris in 1896 provoked riots in the theatre and a national scandal. The story is a vicious and satiric re-telling of Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth.’ David Thomas, Pere Ubu founder and front man explains ‘one early goal, during the course of writing the album, which began in the summer of 2007, was to approach the space between songs in a new way. We began using connective dialog and ambient noise to bridge that space in a thematic way.’ Initially David Thomas was determined to sing the parts of all the characters himself in various voices. This led directly to the notion of a live ‘radio play’ that would compliment the band’s concert set. With the encouragement of Glenn Max, musical director of London’s Southbank Centre, the album begat the theatrical production titled, ‘Bring Me The Head Of Ubu Roi.’ The latter premiered over two days at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, April 25 and 26, 2008. Sarah Jane Morris (ex-Communards, Happy End) was recruited to sing the role of M’re Ubu. Pere Ubu’s soundman, Gagarin, an ambient electronica recording artist, guests on the album and subsequently joined the band on stage. The stage production has the band members playing supporting roles and performing dance routines. Pere Ubu is David Thomas on vocals; Sarah Jane Morris on vocals; Keith Molin’ on guitar; Robert Wheeler on EML synthesizer, theremin; Michele Temple on bass; Steve Mehlman on drums; Gagrin on electronica.

2010 WORLD JUNIOR SURFING CHAMPIONSHIP will be held in New Zealand, one of the World’s most unique surfing destinations. The Junior Champs will be held at Piha Beach, a beautiful black sand beach famous for its large waves, just 45 minutes drive from downtown Auckland. The event will begin on January 20, 2010, at the peak of the Kiwi summer. New Zealand is one of the world’s most rewarding surfing spots with quality waves, plenty of choice and relatively few surfers. The main source of swell for both the North and South Islands is from the low pressure systems of the roaring forties, but New Zealand is fortunate to pick up swell from just about anywhere. For those used to fighting for a beach park and some room in the line up, surfing in New Zealand offers a very different experience. Parking is mostly free and being a country of only 4 million people there is plenty of room to catch the perfect wave. For those looking for an adventure, the best surf spots can be found off the beaten track.
