See “Devolution: A Devo Theory”

Devolutionary Army Alert!

46 years ago General Boy sounded the alarm when he appeared on screen in Devo’s debut film short, “The Beginning Was The End: The Truth about De-evolution” and proclaimed “In the past this information has been suppressed but now it can be told. Every man, woman and mutant on this planet shall know the truth about De-evolution!” Our small, rag tag army of early adaptors duly absorbed his revolutionary declaration. Given the ensuing glut of historical facts and shocking dissipation of rational discourse and critical thought in America its almost impossible to believe that the idea that humans are devolving still meets with strong resistance. However, that’s exactly the case! Let me explain.

Australian film maker, Dom Giorgi, and his production team visited Los Angeles in late February of 2020 on the cusp of the Covid 19 Pandemic. Their purpose was simple. Interview Devo focusing solely on the origins of our theory of De-evolution by reflecting on the last 40 years since we wrote and recorded our “line in the sand” song, “Beautiful World”. Theirs was a labor of love and they were spending their own resources to get the film made. They felt “Beautiful World” was the anchor to their inquiry regarding Devo’s prescient theory and if, in fact, it was even a theory or simply a reality at this point in time. To help them on their no-budget effort we even re-recorded “Beautiful World” for their film with real bass and drums as when we play it live in concert. They toiled for a year and hatched “Devolution: A Devo Theory”, a compelling, one-hour deep dive of earnest insights and simple truths.

Their effort was met with capricious indifference, dismissive condescension and general push back from the corporate gatekeepers who distribute visual content in the United States and Europe. In short, this information HAS BEEN SUPPRESSED by those who don’t want viewers to hear our message and consider our thesis to be dangerous rubbish. Given that De-evolution is quite real in 2022 that posture is beyond mind-blowing.

m So, to all of you who have supported our efforts for decades we offer you this streaming link below to the film in question. The more views it garners, the more Dom and his partners have a tiny chance in hell of landing a distributor who will allow their film, and Devo’s point of view, to see the light of day.”
