Living At Night Isn’t Helping My Comeback

Do we look different now? On the February 23, 2016 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we recruited our very own go-to guy for all things Northeastern Ohio, and at long last, we think we can finally say we like Pere Ubu! So there’s that. There was other stuff, too – it was a pretty good show; you should feel deep personal shame if you missed it – but we’re a little lost in the haze at this point and you’ll just have to take our word for it.

Another Bloated Disco, Another Sniff Of Comeback I’ll Regret

Ooooo! They’re all talking about the February 9, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special! They’re talking about how, for once, Craig played Red Red Meat when Tom was here, they’re thankful for the Valentine’s Flipper. They longed to be close to us, they’ve been wondering aloud to their grandmothers if liking Pere Ubu is possible or even desirable, but they’re looking forward to finding out!

On the January 12, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we made damn sure that everybody knows that if anything goes seriously wrong, it’s not our fault, but if an inadvertent dance party breaks out, we might have had something to do with that.

And I’m Much More A Comeback Man Inside

We were especially happy that you could join us for the January 5, 2017 edition of the ’68Comeback Special. We take the transition from one year to the next very seriously at 68Comeback. The first show of the New Year is the one during which you lay out your path for the coming year and share it with the world, and it might have been the first time ever that we played Einstürzende Neubaten, and it raised those same complicated feelings that it always raises about the Monks.

Before I Was A Comeback I Was A Comeback

On the December 29, 2016 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we bade farewell to what never seemed like much of a year while being careful not to get too enthusiastic for the next one, which doesn’t seem likely to offer any better. We think we played a song at the wrong speed though it was hard to tell for certain, we think we should have played another song at a higher speed even if it was the wrong speed, but mostly we played songs at the right speed.
