Song of the Bailing Man is the fifth Pere Ubu album, and their final work before disbanding for the first extended period. Anton Fier (who would later form The Golden Palominos) replaced Scott Krauss on drums for this album; his only appearance with Pere Ubu. This was the final Pere Ubu album until 1988's The Tenement Year.
