This is the third and final vinyl boxset compiling remastered editions of the Cleveland veterans’ earlier albums. 1988’s The Tenement Year is a particularly solid set of tunes, less spiky and more reflectively mature than earlier work, boasting the clever yet heart-wrenching We Have the Technology. Follow-up Cloudland moves even more into commercial alt-pop territory, exemplified by the exuberant Beckett-rewrite Waiting For Mary. Worlds in Collision adds Beefheart / Residents guitarist Eric Drew Feldman. There’s also a fourth disc of previously unreleased material.

This boxset represents a now somewhat overlooked period in Ubu history, where they drew on Americana from the Beach Boys to Beefheart in a unique and always interesting way, with David Thomas cast in the unlikely role of pop singer.
