Pere Ubu - The Hearpen Singles

As far as I'm concerned, "30 Seconds Over Tokyo b/w Heart of Darkness" is the most riveting debut single by any band that I've ever heard. Shit just didn't sound like that in 1975. I could expound on the details of their greatness forever, but I once saw a copy of the "Final Solution" 45 on ebay that was (allegedly) autographed by late guitarist Peter Laughner and the inscription read something along the lines of: "We do it, others just talk- Peter Laughner." That kinda sums them up for me...

Anyway, these are their first 4 singles, released on Hearpen records, a label the band started themselves. 1975-1978. Enjoy!
