'Drive, He Said 1994-2002' brings together the albums 'Raygun Suitcase' (1995, winner of CD Review's Editors' Choice Award), 'Pennsylvania' (1998, voted no. 1 in Music Critics Poll (1988), Village Voice), 'St Arkansas' (2002, prompting Mojo to summarize their review with 'It's difficult to think of a more important band currently working') and a 12" disc of extras, 'Back Roads'. 'Back Roads' features live studio, jam sessions and newly remixed tracks, including 'Electricity' (with the original vocals that were discarded at the time as 'too brutal'), an outtake from 'Pennsylvania' and a live recording of SAD. TXT from Transmusicales Festival in France, 1998. These albums were the catalyst to finally uniting critics and the establishment to recognize that the band's music was a force to be recognized, prompting four day festivals at the Royal Festival Hall in London, The Knitting Factory in NYC and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's event, '55 Years of Pain,' honoring Pere Ubu along with fellow icons of the Cleveland scene, 15-60-75, in 1999. All studio albums and the 12" disc 'Back Roads' were remixed and engineered by David Thomas and Paul Hamann at Suma, in June 2016.
