Pere Ubu will never end. I am already grooming my replacement in the band. The plan is that he will be taking over in approximately five years, or sooner if he makes more rapid progress in terms of songwriting.
Can you elaborate on the "replacement" you are grooming to take your place in Pere Ubu? Who is he or she?
Not saying yet.
Will you continue to write songs for Pere Ubu after you leave the band?
Maybe. But when I go I anticipate the replacement will do the writing. I will continue as producer for an interim period.
David Thomas appears to have lost a lot of weight recently. He refuses to comment on his health. The Ubuprojex diary for 2012 makes grim reading showing that more than half the May tour was canceled due to ill health. There are but two further events scheduled for September and nothing more this year. He advises that he is already grooming a replacement for his position in the band.
