Tom did the rest.
Tom Herman was a founding member of the legendary Pere Ubu. After the release of "New Picnic Time" in 1979 he left the band, and was replaced by Mayo Thompson (Red Crayola). Nearly 20 years later Herman reunited with Pere Ubu to record "Pennsylvania". Since then he is a permanent member of the band fronted by David Thomas.
Beside his work with the group, the now 55 years old musician still got time for his own projects like "Wait For It", which he recorded mostly on his own with a little help by some friends. He sang, played all the guitars, bass, keyboards, saxophone and electronics. Pere Ubu´s Steve Mehlman played drums on "Hey" and "When I´m Gone", Linda Herman sang on "Your Street", Len Bove sang and played guitar on "Veil Of Separation" and Nate played drums on"I Do Now".
Although some songs reveal similarities to the experimental avantgardish music of Pere Ubu and Tuxedomoon, "Wait For It" is more a rock record with strong guitars, lots of noises and deep influences from Psychedelic music to Blues. The importance of the Blues is not only quite obvious in the only coversong of the record, Blind Lemon Jeffersons "Jesus", but also in tracks like "Red Haired Girl" and "When I´m Gone".
