Pere Ubu - Oh Catherine - David Letterman

Happy Valentine's day!

I could come around to this. It surely isn't just the fact that the singer is a bit portly and round-faced that makes me think they must have inspired the Pixies a little bit?

Definite affinities, Dominic. For one thing, the keyboard player at the time of this appearance, Eric Drew Feldman, later went on to record and tour with the Pixies and Frank Black. Pere Ubu also played shows with the Pixies.

In a sad coincidence, it was this very video which would be included in a tribute to guitarist Jim Jones (linked to at Matablog), who passed away earlier this week.
