I'm flabbergasted, really, at how much Pere Ubu's new "Fevered Dream of Hernando DeSoto" sounds like Sonic Youth's "Waist" (from 1994 -- it's the one on Experimental Jet Set that goes "You better not waste away..."). I'm probably missing the larger picture, though -- could they both be ripping off an older song that I don't know? (Never!)
