RELEASE DESCRIPTION

Futurismo proudly presents the release all hardcore Devo fans have been waiting for: ART DEVO 1973-1977, a lovingly packaged box set housing rare, unheard, and obscure mind blowers sourced directly from the vaults of The De-Evolution Band. This anthology takes you from the band’s initial conception in Akron, Ohio to the moment before the world woke up, in a collection of sonic and visual art that captures Devo at the dawn of industrial death.

ART DEVO showcases the mesmerizing evolution of a band on the brink of discovery, mining irony, wit and dark humor from the madness of a distorted modern world still coming to terms with the aftermath of a collapsed economy and the Vietnam War. From 1973-1977 Devo would transform from an art project, pop art in the literal sense, into the group David Bowie would declare “the band of the future”. Here you will find the audio mutations of a band at the edge of greatness, initial concepts that gave birth to a new aesthetic that continually challenged preconceptions about music, art, performance, culture, composition, and consumption…it was also the birth of Booji Boy. While the songs here may not be fully grown, raw even, these are the seeds of subversion that kickstarted Devo’s 50-year legacy.

Spanning 3 LP’s and a 7” of predominantly unreleased material, this collection draws purely from that integral early history, garnered from unearthed basement recordings, original demo tapes, unfinished montages, and rare live audio, all taken from the band's personal archive. The music is set against rare imagery, photos, and personal artwork, with liners penned directly from the hands of founding members Jerry Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh and packaged in a gold foiled archive box containing separate art cards, to evoke a pseudo auction house art catalog. Did we mention one of the images is also Scratch ‘N’ Sniff!

This is a one-time-only, strictly Limited edition box set, never to be remade, showcasing why Devo was, and still is, one of the most important bands in American history. De-evolution is real. The art of Devo is real. Here is the evidence.

The tracklist that has been curated by the band, comes housed in a gold foiled archive box, and contains a set of Double-sided art cards – including a Scratch ‘N’ Sniff image. Plus liner notes by Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald V Casale.
