At some point many years ago, before I was in a band from Seattle, I worked for free during the days pushing cases and being a crew guy at a place called "the Bachanal" in San Diego.
Devo had never played that club and thankfully would never play that club again. I want to say the year was 1989. I was there for load in and sound check, and was WAY more enthusiastic than usual... This was DEVO… up close. Amazed to watch them work. Life changing.
Everyone was great. Show went good. They used some projection that I was able to assist with. It was legendary to see them in a place so small. By the end of the night it was a full on Devo show, one that everyone in SD would talk about for some time. Seemed the whole music community was there.
There was no way to not see them as heroes. It was great being in their midst, and one gentleman in particular was extremely kind to me. Here I was, some punk kid working crew who looked up to and said hello to 'Bob 2' from Devo. And he was so cool and friendly, and kept referring to me all through the night. He asked if I could look out for a couple of his VIP type friends/family, and they were wonderful as well.
It ended up being a night that was memorable for many great reasons, but the top of the list was his being so respectful to a stranger. And quite seriously, nowadays, when I end up being nice to someone I don't know, it has everything to do with that man Bob I met, all those years ago.
We all send our love to you.

As an original member of Devo, Bob Casale was there in the trenches with me from the beginning. He was my level-headed brother, a solid performer and talented audio engineer, always giving more than he got. He was excited about the possibility of Mark Mothersbaugh allowing Devo to play shows again. His sudden death from conditions that lead to heart failure came as a total shock to us all. -- Gerald Casale, Devo founder.
A message from Lisa Casale (Bob's wife):

DEVO allowed Natalia Brożyńska, a young film student in Poland, to use the demo version of "Blockhead" in a short movie she created called "Searching For DEVO" as part of her film school studies. She hand-crafted all the puppets & set design herself. Gerald Casale of DEVO said this after view Natalia's movie: "This sincere, labor-intensive, retro stop-action animation piece from a young girl in Poland is the latest proof that music is indeed the universal language. I felt like Devo were anthropomorphized bacteria performing sonic surgery in a Blockhead's colon." We are told that the film will be making an appearance at a film fest or two in Europe. Good luck, Natalia...and GREAT JOB on the movie! Direct Link:

DEVO performs "Jerkin' Back n' Forth" for the first time in many, many years at The Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, CA - 6/9/13. Video by Michael Pilmer/Devo-Obsesso. Thanks to DEVO's FOH engineer Paul Hager for the soundboard audio!
Although Jerry Casale says DEVO hadn't performed this song in 30 years at the end of this video, it's probably been closer to 20 years. Still...a long time!

Something ELSE for Everybody is a compilation of early DEVO demos and focus group rejects written between 2006 and 2009. They were relegated to bin 86 for various inexplicable reasons. You sniffed the Wheat in 2010 now lick the chaff aged to perfection.
