Description: Released in 1986 this album, the second of Tom Herman's post-Pere Ubu "solo" albums has been out of print for decades now. Recently Paul Hamann at Suma digitally transfered and mastered a virgin vinyl copy of the album.
Trouser Press said:
"With better production and playing, A Warning to All Strangers organizes the trio's music into a concise attack that occasionally resembles the Minutemen. As diverse as it is emotionally intense, this anxiety-ridden collection (song titles are given under the heading "List of Worries") lurches from a barking contest to a James Brown funk breakdown to gibberish without skipping a groove. Over the rhythm section's propulsive chug, Herman's thrusting guitar chords and edgily confident shout-singing emboldens the bizarrely fascinating lyrics, making Tripod Jimmie's concerns seem very real and urgent."
