Dopo Elitism For The People e Architecture Of Language è pronto un nuovo box antologico con le ristampe in vinile dei lavori dei Pere Ubu scandite con i criteri di periodizzazione della rilettura storica (in questo caso saremmo a Modern Era, prima di Orange Period e dopo Historical Era e Fontana Years). Si intitola Drive, He Said e copre l'epoca 1994-2002 con gli album Raygun Suitcase, Pennsylvania e St Arkansas, più alcuni brani extra raccolti in Back Roads. Lo si può prenotare già ora via Ubutique o Bandcamp.

'Drive, He Said' is the third box set from Fire Records and will be released March 10, 2017. Orders are being taken now at Ubutique with a limited special offer of an original 7" colored vinyl single of 'Slow Walking Daddy' included. 'Drive, He Said' brings together the albums 'Raygun Suitcase' (1995), 'Pennsylvania' (1998), 'St Arkansas' (2002) and a 12" disc of extras, 'Back Roads,' which features outtakes and studio mixes, as well as a live recording of 'SAD.TXT' from Transmusicales Festival in France, 1998. All tracks have been re-mixed to take advantage of the latest technology and the original version of 'Electricity' is reinstated with the vocals that were considered "too brutal" at the time of recording.
