New DEVO Online Store OPEN NOW!

Here’s a missive from Jerry of DEVO announcing an important anniversary and the re-launch of our official DEVO online store thanks to our new partnership with Impact Merchandising:

“FREEDOM OF CHOICE IS WHAT YOU GOT. FREEDOM FROM CHOICE IS WHAT YOU WANT”

DEVO, ever canaries in a coalmine, issued that strident warning 40 years ago this month of May 1980 on the title track to our FREEDOM OF CHOICE LP. We were pro-information, anti stupid conformity and knew that the struggle for freedom against tyranny is never-ending.

Here we are 40 years later, living in the alternate reality nightmare spawned by Covid 19 and the botched response of our world “leaders” to do the right thing quickly. We are not exaggerating when we say that 2020 could be the last time you might be able to exercise your freedom of choice. If you don’t use it, you can certainly lose it.

DEVO also introduced the ENERGY DOME in tandem with our 1980 LP. Graphically bold design in aggressive, primary red it became the most iconic symbol of the band’s multi-media mission to spread the idea of Devolution. We explained that once the dome was placed on your head it recycled the electrical energy that regularly escapes from your brain. People of course laughed. Now the dome is no longer a source of controversy or derision. Its popularity is a sort of proof that De-evolution is real!

As you know the Coronavirus pandemic squashed any DEVO 2020 concert plans for the time being. We shall see what happens. In the meantime we know that as the lockdown is eased human interactions at concerts, sporting events, etc. mean that masks are part of our foreseeable future. To that end DEVO will be offering two classic designs for your PPE mask needs. Check our re-launched DEVO store for details.

What? The DEVO store is back? That’s right! Against all odds after unfortunate experiences with some bad actors & pandemic related delays, we are now able to offer cool DEVO stuff to any spud who might want it. In addition to the masks and classic T’s we have a spiffy, clear plastic, DEVO PPS Shield that is designed to attach easily to the DEVO Energy Dome to protect you from invisible microbes and unwanted bodily fluids. Stay safe in devolved style!

Duty Now For The Future,

Gerald Casale of DEVO

DEVO Live 1980 LP Black Friday RSD!

Heads Up, DEVOtees: Record Store Day BLACK FRIDAY (NOV. 29th) Special Release!

In the early 1980s the “Warner Bros. Music Show” series was mailed to radio stations as promo copies, to be aired only once as a radio show. Pressings were probably a run of a few hundred copies and may have been included as part of the Rockpool service that was sent to 250 college stations. For RSD Black Friday this edition of the series’ promo has been replicated. Six songs from this recording, including an unlisted intro, were used to make the original DEV-O Live 12″ mini-album release.

SIDE A – A1 “Freedom of Choice Theme Song” A2 “Whip It” A3 “Snowball” A4 “It’s Not Right” A5 “Girl U Want” A6 “Planet Earth” A7 “S.I.B. (Swelling Itching Brain)” A8 “Secret Agent Man” A9 “Blockhead”

SIDE B – B1 “Uncontrollable Urge” B2 “Mongoloid” B3 “Be Stiff” B4 “Gates Of Steel” B5 “Smart Patrol / Mr. DNA” B6 “Gut Feeling (Slap Your Mammy)” B7 “Come Back Jonee”
