LES HARICOTS SONT PAS SALES 1987-1991
Label: FIRE RECORDS
Cat No: FIRELP459
Barcode: 0809236145918
Packaging: 4LP Box Set

4LP box, A3 poster. This final box set includes ‘The Tenement Year’ (1988), ‘Cloudland’ (1989),
‘Worlds In Collison’ (1991) and ‘Lost Album’ (1989). The third in the four-part boxed set series, ‘Les
Haricots Sont Pas Salé 1987-1991’ sits between ‘The Architecture Of Language 1979-1982’ and

‘Drive, He Said 1994-2002’. 'Solid as the band can be, it's also likely to dissolve songs from the bot-
tom up. For all Pere Ubu's uncertainty, the band isn't arbitrary; its music has the off-the-wall unity of a

Marx Brothers routine,' said Jon Pareles of The New York Times on ‘The Tenement Year’. One year
later and things were further obscured with ‘Cloudland’ when they released 'their industrial-strength equivalent of a class Beach
Boys album from musicians more familiar with factories than surf.' (Greg Kot, Chicago Sun Times). Then, in 1991, ‘Worlds In
Collision’ became 'the most atmospheric, carefully sculpted recording in the band's 13-album catalog.' (Tom Moon, Spin). Here
we have Pere Ubu between 1987 and 1991 with three phenomenal pop albums, together with the ‘The Lost Album’, an 11-track
record of demos that sounds like they’d loosened the nut and bolts of the genre even further. Four of these tracks, ‘Around The
Fire’,’ Down By The River’, ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ and ‘Invisible Man’ were recorded as demos for the album originally designed to
follow ‘Cloudland’. Referred to by the band as ‘The Lost Album’ they are now joined with songs from ‘Cloudland’ that wouldn’t fit
on the original vinyl release due to the length limitations of vinyl.
