New Picnic Time is the third full-length album by Pere Ubu. Reportedly the album sessions were stressful and contentious, and after touring, the group disbanded. They would reform a matter of months later with Mayo Thompson replacing founding guitarist Tom Herman. The lyrics for the song "The Voice Of The Sand" are based upon the poetry of Vachel Lindsay.
