boasting a large expanse of synths (due to Thomas writing and arranging the songs alone with his collection of drum machines, synthesizers and a melodeon before sending to the other musicians), this is a unique fusion of techno meets trad rock meets avant garage.

Named after Raymond Chandler’s novel, ‘THE LONG GOODBYE’ is the end of a road. Front man David Thomas has long talked of their journey to Satisfied City: “This wraps up every song and story that Pere Ubu has been telling in different ways for the past forty plus years.” This Pere Ubu album sounds like no other.
