Hardcore documents DEVO’s beginning as pre-punk outcasts in the fertile Akron, Ohio underground rock scene. Spawned at the nearby college of Kent State, site of the infamous May 4 Massacre, DEVO formed as a conceptual art project armed with a radical philosophy of de-evolution. Brothers Mothersbaugh (Mark and Bob) and Brothers Casale (Jerry and Bob) along with drummer Alan Myers soon whipped-up an otherworldly brand of “devolved blues” that could hold its own alongside the beatnik groove of 15-60-75 (aka The Numbers Band) or the primal rock poetry of the Bizarros.

Recorded on various 4-track machines and in tiny studios, basements, and garages between 1974-1977, Hardcore reveals their strikingly clear vision: rock n’ roll stripped bare of its collective cool and jerked back into propaganda fit for post-modern man. Threaded beneath it all are lyrical themes of post-McCarthy paranoia, middle-class ephemera, and DEVO’s long-running topic of choice: sex, or lack thereof.

DEVObots App for iPhone

DEVOtee makes DEVObots App for iPhones!

Booji Boy says, “They got these things called Apps now. Magic phone toys! Fun! DEVO’s got an App for iPhone now, created by a DEVOtee pal of ours, and I’ve been makin’ sounds and building DEVObots with it since General Boy left his iPhone unattended. Check it out, Spuds!”
The App’s creator says, “The App is an audio loop generator featuring unreleased DEVO loops from the 1980s that you can mix together and make your own music or sounds. It is also an Art creation Kit where you can decorate your own photos and make new characters from DEVObots assets or stickers in the App.”

DEVO Live 1981 Seattle on CD!

DEVO released “Live 1981 Seattle” as a 2LP vinyl set last year as part of Record Store Day, and it sold out quickly. This year we offer it to you on CD in a beautiful digipack with 2 bonus tracks, plus a booklet featuring rare 1981/82 tour photos!

From Press Release: A rare recording of DEVO live in concert during their 1981 New Traditionalists tour, extracted from DEVO’s archives. This CD was cut from a cassette recording of DEVO’s show in Seattle, WA show in November ‘81. DEVO archivist Michael Pilmer (aka Devo-Obsesso), found the tape in a shoebox full of cassettes in Bob No 2’s home fifteen years ago, which he immediately transferred it to DAT. Afterward it promptly disappeared in the flotsam of DEVO history. Here resurrected it stands as a testament to Prince’s claim “DEVO, you guys are crazy!” Yes, crazy tight and relentless like Caucasian James Browns on marching powder.

DIGITAL VERSION AVAILABLE JUNE 25th at DEVOHARDCORE.COM!
