MONKEY ALERT!! We’re marking 50 years of American synthpunk oddballs Devo in this month’s Electronic Sound. The band’s co-founders Mark Mothersbaugh and Jerry Casale are in superb form for our cover feature, talking about their current tour – they’re playing three gigs in the UK next month – and their forthcoming ‘Art Devo 1973-1977’ triple album. The pair recall their formative years at length, a story which involves the extended sonic assault of audiences, monsters high on nitrous oxide, wardrobes full of masks and costumes, and the inevitability of their surrender to the rules of de-evolutionary theory. As one of the group’s many memorable slogans has it, “In the beginning was the end”. Oh, and there are monkeys too, of course. We couldn’t possibly forget the monkeys.
