DEVO 1981 Interview St. Paul MN

We kicked off the New Traditionalists tour in the Fall of 1981 there in St. Paul, MN. We were experimenting with press conferences as if we were a political activist group in order to re-frame our music and visuals beyond a trivializing Rock n’ Roll press mentality. It was gratifying to hear from the fans who would show up. They understood that life under President Reagan was stultifying. Reagan and his anti-diversity and inclusion policies were empowering the barrage of attacks on basic First Amendment freedoms from the Evangelical, religious right. Reagan was evoking the fantasy of 1950’s, Mom and Apple Pie, white bread America that defied the real forces of international discord and looming environmental disaster facing all people. Once again de-evolution seemed to win out over rational thought and forward looking ideas. We did what we could to humorously fight back. We posited New Traditions to replace the stale, punishing traditions holding people down. – Jerry Casale/DEVO

Talking Devolution with Burger Boogaloo Headliner Devo

“We’re just the house band going down with the Titanic, playing your favorite tunes as we all go down.”

The history of Devo, the misunderstood iconoclast multimedia pioneers of punk, is far complicated than scores composed for Rugrats. Reached by phone earlier this week, Devo co-founder Jerry Casale cut into the grit about Donald Trump without hesitation (or espresso). “He’s a blustering, idiotic developer-businessman-entrepreneur who hoodwinked everybody, has been bankrupt four times, gotten himself into a mountain of debt,” Casale said, sounding groggy but perking up as the caffeine hits. “It’s proof of Devolution of our entire culture.”
