“Final Solution” – Pere Ubu

The greatest song to emerge from the Cleveland underground from the mid-late 1970s.  I love how this song rides its sinister, minimalistic groove, gradually adding instruments, and then exploding at the end with a magnificent guitar solo by the late Peter Laughner.  Arguably, Laughner’s finest moment on record, though it’s well worth it to check out the material he recorded with Rocket from the Tombs and his posthumous solo compilation “Take the Guitar Player for a Ride.”
